Re: Does it matter whether I install 32-bit on an amd64 box?

Brilliant, I'll start to download the 4-bit version, as it has the multi-libs.

Thanks for your help.

Chris.

Can I install 32-bit on an amd64 box? [Solved]

Hi, all!

I've just done an install on an amd64 box, using a 32-bit ISO. I did this because in the past, with other distros, this is the only way I've been able to use Flash and Skype. I'm happy with this approach, but with Sabayon, will it cause any problems?

Cheers,

Chris.

Re: en_GB language missing after install.

Thanks for this. I haven't tried it yet, but when I tried to add en_GB from the log-in manager, it told me that the language was missing, so although everything should point to the right place (i'll check), I think I need to install a language pack, just not sure which.

Cheers,

Chris.

en_GB language missing after install [Solved]

Hi, all!

Just done a fresh install and for some strange reason, the 'British English' language stuff didn't install, so when I log-in, it falls back to en_US. Anyone know which package I need to install to get the en_GB stuff?

Appreciate your help.

Cheers,

Chris.

You might want to try running the mirror select tool:

Code: Select all

equo repo mirrorsort sabayonlinux.org
Many thanks.

I'll mark as SOLVED.

Where are my Sabayon mirrors/ repos listed? [Solved]

Hi, all! When Entropy runs, it checks the software mirrors/ repos; several of which consistently fail (I can understand why with the Japan mirror). Does anyone know where the mirrors are defined/ listed? I'd like to comment out (###) the ones that fail and use the more reliable ones. Your help is re...

How Can I tell which Video Driver I'm Using? [Solved]

Hi, all!

I'd like to find out which video driver I'm using. I suspect it's the ATI Radeon one, but I need to be sure. The reason I ask is that I have a huge amount of xf86-video drivers installed by default and I'd like to remove most of them.

Any help really appreciated.

Cheers,

Chris.
