Re: UEFI boot won't load kernel?

Solved. Sort of. The computer is an MSI GS70 laptop. Sabayon any version, won't boot from live cd/dvd/usb unless the boot/*efi files are replaced with those off of an U buntu iso. Once that is done, the distro will boot, and also install, quite easily. There is a problem with the EFI partition, bein...

Re: UEFI boot won't load kernel?

A quick update. Using a fresh "grub2-install" + "grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg" Works, gets me to grub splash menu.... BUT! I still can't boot/load from there. Even using a grub command line fails, and seems to only be failing on the ramdisk. I can however, still boot Sabayon by using for ex...

Re: UEFI boot won't load kernel?

I've still not had much luck. So far I've booted using the grub commandline, which got me into Sabayon, and I've performed a system update. Since then, I've reinstalled standard Sabayon EFI + Grub. I get dumped to grub commandline still (Where does the efi look for the grub.cfg?) I'm able to boot us...

Re: UEFI boot won't load kernel?

I got it loading. Kind of. Grub boots to grub command line only... It's not reading the config file? Anyway... I modified my grub.cfg to; menuentry 'Sabayon GNU/Linux' --class sabayon --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os $menuentry_id_option 'gnulinux-simple-7d1b13e5-d9b9-4988-baf0-a1d8d3f58601'...

Re: Anaconda Installer does not recognice the EFI Partition

"The ESP partition: How many are needed, where, and how big should it be? Different sources on the internet says different things. Microsft only support one such partition – and that partition needs to be on your boot disk. MS also recommends it to be the first partition on your disk. As for size, a...

(Kindofsolved) UEFI Grub won't load Iinitrd?

Hi all. I've been trying to install Sabayon onto my shiny new MSI GS70 Stealth laptop. But, I am encountering a few problems. Legacy mode works fine, but I need to dualboot Win8 with UEFI. The first problem I have is that I can get an UEFI usb key of Sabayon to boot, to grub menu only (With gfx etc)...

GCC/G++ and GLEW, SFML

Hi all. Really loving the distro, great set up. I have noticed a few things though. 1. Installing GCC/G++, it seems that the symlinks don't get created? It's possible I may be missing something like some new set up program. It's been a while. 2. GLEW libs + Headers seem to be outdated? I had to comp...

Sony Dualshock 4

Can anyone help me sort out which bits from a Dualshock4 do what? Would like to add support of the ds4 to xboxdrv. The ds4 does work with Linux, but buttons and axis are differently mapped to the accepted standard (x360), and quite a few games expect that mapping, without the ability to remap. Faili...
