From you posted output, it almost looks like the sabayon overlay is messed up or not added. Did you try adding/synching it with layman?

For a command line approach try the following (you'll need to emerge gentoolkit first, if it's not already):

Code: Select all

Are there still going to be mini CD versions? I thought the core install process was going to provide that functionality, so the minis wouldn't be necessary any more...

First one is very cool. Can you make smaller versions that could be used for kmenu/desktop icons?

Actually, I take that back. If Gentoo's base is abandoned, the easiest for us to adopt and use would be Arch. Many ex-Gentooers use Arch now, and it's highly customizable yet simple. ABS is supposed to be pretty decent as an automatic compiler, and is more than enough for the target Sabayon user. T...

I've used udept to purge dependencies from my world file, so it's not all the packages I have installed, just the ones that aren't dependencies of something else, plus anything I've explicitly installed with "emerge packagename".

I've already cleaned my world file of dependencies with udept, so searching through world won't reveal much. Wolfden, your previous post where you listed all the packages you uninstalled is very helpful. Those types of tutorials on how advanced users use Sabayon are extremely useful to people like m...

Right, here's where it gets tricky. I've already manually removed some of the obvious stuff like language files I don't need, ksynaptic, and a few others, but is it possible to get a comprehensive list of unneeded packages so I can uninstall them all? For example, how can I get all the dialup modem ...
