Re: KDE 4 on Sabayon

Impressive! Looks like I have been out of the loop. Although, by the sounds of the problems you guys are having, I think my installation is running a bit smoother (I'm not getting frequent crashes and I can log out just fine.) GTK theme support will be poor until the new gtk-qt theme engine is porte...

KDE 4 on Sabayon

Hey all :) Just wanted to send a quick note to let everyone know that I'm running KDE 4 on Sabayon very smoothly right now. There are still a few bugs, but it is very early in its release cycle and that is something to be expected. I am going to start a wiki article this weekend on obtaining KDE 4, ...

Re: HP dv6000z broadcom wireless card not showing up

The write up says "add (blah blah blah code, then blah blah blah code, then blah blah blah code.) Then you're good to go!" What the hell do I add the coding to? Where can I find it? Read the instructions. The first two lines with the pound sign mean that they are typed into a terminal window as the...

Re: All of a sudden, I can't log in. [Solved]

I am not aware of which packages PAM dropped support for, but the sequence of (1.) Updating PAM and (2.) running equery/remerging the packages it said to worked perfectly for my system, most importantly shadow and gdm/kdm (whichever you may be running) but also things such as xscreensaver.

Code: Select all

# modprobe -r bcm43xx
# modprobe ndiswrapper
After you have set up ndiswrapper as chickpea mentioned and as written in the wiki.

Re: All of a sudden, I can't log in.

This turned out to be the result of an upgrade for PAM modules. See this thread for more information: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-605705-highlight-pam+login.html And this page in the Gentoo documentation: http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/base/pam/upgrade-0.99.xml All I did was this: equery dep...

All of a sudden, I can't log in. [Solved]

So I upgraded a bunch of packages yesterday (including some important ones, like bash) since I am still running 3.4a on this system and like to avoid re-installs/DVD upgrades. :D Anyway, everything went fine, until I rebooted. Here are my symptoms: GDM loads, but the username input box is grayed out...

New site, new colours, I like.

Personally, I always thought red&white would be the best colours for Sabayon. I hope the team plans to use these as the flagship theme for future releases.

Re: Video chat with MSN Users

Wow, I don't mean to toot my own horn but.. does anyone read the wiki these days? I wrote an article a little while ago on how to compile aMSN with antialiasing, it takes maybe ten minutes.
