Re: Latest Software

Remember, Sabayon depends on its upstream, means Gentoo. Firefox 70 got into Portage 31-Oct-2019 17:09 and 70.0.1 31-Oct-2019 19:09. It requires some days till it gets into mainline Sabayon and some more to get into weekly. For eclipse, just grab the Linux package from their site. Worked fine for me...

Re: install python3.7

Not yet in Entropy, you could try your luck with Portage though.

Re: Installer issues

I do the updates and restart my PC only to get three question marks and then a blinking cursor forever. Seems like a graphics issue. I have wasted so many DVDs trying to install this OS and it's just terrible that I am having so much trouble. Why don't you use an USB flash drive? I need some help o...

The '-C' (--unmerge) option in Portage does not check dependencies, which could be why it worked. Have you tried with the following command, which does check for dependencies, to see if it would still be removed?
Checked with Entropy, it seems to depend on itself only.

Re: Can't remove gcc 7

Funny thing. Just removed it with emerge:

Code: Select all

# emerge -C sys-devel/base-gcc-7.3.0-r3
# equo rescue spmsync

Just grab mpv instead of mplayer.

Code: Select all

# equo i -a mpv

Re: Exploring the possibility of creating

The Sabayon EBS images are not longer available.

Alternatively you can go with Funtoo or Gentoo.

Re: Strawberry?

Some claim Strawberry's sound is better. As I understand it it's about specific audiophile HW and settings. A regular user would not notice. On the other hand Strawberry drops functionality the dev is not interested in. So it's about if it matches your preferences. Don't think it's of interest for ...

Sabayon 19.3 review on Distrowatch

Sabayon 19.3 has been review on Distrowatch lately: Review: Sabayon 19.03 . Sabayon's claim that it is a "beginner-friendly" distro that is "bleeding edge" and "stable and reliable" is a bit of a stretch. I doubt "beginners" will comprehend the instructions for what to do after installing Sabayon - ...
