Re: Installing without DVD

There's two complete listings right here. One on the forums: http://www.sabayonlinux.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12023 and one in the wiki: HOWTO:_Run_3.5_Loop_Without_Burning_The_Image

They employ 2 slightly different methods.

Re: Is there a rescue CD/DVD that can chainload root partition?

Sorry I didn't reply earlier. Any grub copy of the same version would be exactly the same. Even different versions of grub should theorectically be the same provided you take the "stage" files from the same place as before. In your case, using the stage files you already had on the partition would l...

Re: Live CD/DVD hanging

Please the same thing with changing noapic to nolapic If that doesn't work, try completely removing the noapic parameter. The error you're getting is related to hardware error or the kernel not accessing the right places. Going from noapic to nolapic if iirc let's the APIC work but restricts the ker...

Re: Kmenu listing/sort post installation issues

I've changed entries and spent some time digging through the files and the little info I found on KDE's site quickly. I then spent quite a bit of time messing with the files they say affect everything. Basically, if you don't have any Includes or Excludes overriding anything, it will automatically f...

Re: Live CD/DVD hanging

I'm not sure if there's a cleaner way to do this. Start with this, select the second entry for no music, hit F5 to see boot parameters, scroll to the left and delete: splash=silent,theme:sabayon and quiet This will give you the black screen again with all the white text without deleting the things y...

Kmenu listing/sort post installation issues

It seems that Include entries in ~/.config/menus/applications-kmenuedit.menu used in the live disc carry over to an installation. The problem here is that automatic sorting when you select Name or Name - Description or Description (Name) or Description does not work through an entire menu properly. ...

Re: Live CD/DVD hanging

Please try with your laptop ON A/C POWER:

Code: Select all

noddc res=800x600 xdriver=vesa noacpi noapic
Basically this restricts all control of power and peripherals, sets an overly sane resolution, and uses the most generic video driver.

Re: Sabayon 3.5 x86 (DVD) on TravelMate 630

It works! I just added noaccelmanager xdriver=nvidia acpi=off noapic nolapic and it works well. I suppose I'll have to pass these parameters any time on boot, in some way... You're gonna want to play with those and figure out which you need. Turning off ACPI is gonna leave you without power managem...

Re: Is there a rescue CD/DVD that can chainload root partition?

Going way to far on this. Boot from Sabayon live disc. Open a term and type: grub then replacing the x's with your boot drive/partition each counting from 0: root(hdx,x) probably hd0,3 according to your post then replacing with the boot drive: setup(hdx) EDIT: grub-install is naughty btw, grub manua...
