I'm not using this for the bling factor at all. My desktop is a fairly default "Plastik" right now, and I uninstalled all 3D effects.

I've read the review, there's no editor war at all... :D it was simply a matter of choice :) many people had always complained about having 30000 packets with the same purpose, so we did a clean up keeping just one or two in some cases for each kind Come on...if there's one essential piece of softw...

WOW! Sabayon 3.4

Buon lavoro! (My Italiano is rusty...I know that literally means "good work," but is that the best way to say it?) So many things that needed to be fixed from Sabayon 3.3 have been. I'm running it on my laptop, and have little reason to switch at this point. Let me count the reasons... * KDE Desktop...

Menu items are very jagged in the KMenu

All of my menu entries in a default KMenu (not SUSE-style) are very jagged, as if their icons have been resized larger than the original height and width. All submenu entries (applications, etc.) look as normal, but this problem is with the Games>, Graphics>, Office> and other main menus. Any way to...

I use Sabayon as a way to have a working system as I recompile it into Gentoo. If I were looking for binary package management, I think I'd probably be using Arch or Debian right now. But I'm curious where the devs are going with this Entropy idea, so I'll keep posted on it.

Portage: Basic compile time customizations?

If I'm going to spend time compiling apps via portage, I'd certainly like them to comply with certain specifications. What are some beginner compile-time customizations for Portage? Are there certain parts of the application that many choose to leave out? For example, documentation? I'd like to reco...

I've had my office computer downloading/seeding for a couple days now, and am averaging a solid 180KB/s upload speed (max for my connection). The main problem is that the torrent seems to be, in a word, "buggy": Often quitting and re-opening Bittorrent (Windows) results in haveing 30+ peers, but aft...

Especially for a productivity distro. But the average person who needs Vi is more than geeky enough to figure out how to install it themselves :^)

good read, but what is Vi? what is the history behind it? It's a truly unique, full-featured text editor that many of us Unix guys can't live without :^) It's been around since 1976, I think, and was "forked" to Vim, meaning "Vi iMproved" because it includes a number of enhancements that I can't po...

Review: Sabayon BE 1.0: Easy Gentoo for the office?

Hi everyone, my review of Sabayon BE 1.0 is now live on this relatively new blog (I'm a guest writer): http://friedcpu.wordpress.com/ ( Permalink ) Hope you enjoy! I really liked using Sabayon Business Edition, but just didn't have the time to take it to the "next level" as I explain in my conclusion.
