Re: Broken kernel upgrade

More information....my Sabayon drive is /dev/sdb . In addition, grub is installed on /dev/sda . This does not make the installer happy. For example, the bzImage and initrd links in the /boot directory do not get updated. I updated them manually this AM to point to the correct boot files, but kdm sti...

Broken kernel upgrade-more info posted

Recently I installed Sabayon 11. I also installed virtualbox, but it did not work. I read that I should make sure that my kernel is updated (3.7 to 3.8 ), so I followed the steps in: http://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?title=HOWTO:_Upgrade_kernel_using_Entropy and used entropy to update my kernel. The...

Re: Kmail and KDE 4.10.1

Hi Tollgate,
It has been several weeks since you started testing thunderbird. How is the test going? Have you decided to completely dump kmail or are you still testing?

Thanks,

Mark

Canon MF5950dw printer driver

Working with new (up to date) install of Sabayon 11. By default, my Canon imageclass MF 5950dw printer is recognized as it is on the local network, but there are no drivers installed. At the Canon site, I found 64-bit drivers in rpm format. In looking inside the rpm package, I find ppd files which m...

Re: Kmail and KDE 4.10.1

I'm stubborn. I've been using kmail since forever. Getting it configured is not as easy as I wish it was, but moving from a very old version in my last incarnation of linux to the 4.10.1 version is now up and running well. I keep a lot of e-mail around, so I really appreciate having each e-mail in i...

Re: Removing KDE wallpapers

Open a terminal. Become root. Type the command: #locate wallp (no need for the rest of the word, or a trailing "*" You will get a lot of output but you will be able to find the path to the wallpapers. Use the cd command to go to those folders and rm the images that you do not want. At the root promp...

New Sabayon install (updated) with KDE 10 [Solved]

Hi, As I said, new install, updated. I5-2500k processor, 16G ram 500Gig SATA drive. On install, I noticed that there is no e-mail client installed. I like having mail stored locally in maildir format rather than mbox. That leaves Thunderbird out, so I have used kmail for years, and it has worked wel...

Re: [solved]Install fail. Anaconda crash in partition creati

Yes I checked. I used my existing linux distro to fdisk the drive that I'm installing Sabayon on (deleted the mess that Sabayon made, and created new partitions the way I wanted them). I downloaded again, checked md5, burned and checked md5. All OK again. Then I ran from the newly created DVD and I ...
