Re: Entropy Starts and Then Shuts Down

Don't use emerge --sync to update if you're going to use "Entropy Store" as that is the command to update your portage tree and it's not recommended to mix the two unless you are very sure of what you're doing. It sounds as though there may a problem with your entropy installation so use these comm...

Entropy Starts and Then Shuts Down

Hi, all! The update manager (Magneto) tells me that I have updates available. When I right-click to launch the package manager, Entropy Store appears on screen for long enough for me to briefly see it, and then disappears, again. This has been happening since I tried to maximise the Entropy window, ...

Re: Can I Install BOINC from the Repos?

I think the problem is that I can't see BOINC in the repos. I looked at Entropy Store and also used sulfur from the terminal (which fired-up Entropy Store). Did I miss something?

Re: Can I Install BOINC from the Repos?

Thanks for the replies. I assumed because BOINC is in the Gentoo repos (http://packages.gentoo.org/package/sci-misc/boinc), that it would be available to Sabayon.

I'll have a look at Fitzcarraldo's link.

Thanks, again.

Chris.

I had a look at th equo man page, but wasn't able to see the best way to use this query format to search for licences that didn't contain the letters GPL. Is that possible with Equo?

Cheers,

Re: New 5.5/ Xfce installation- Log-in Screen frozen

I think this problem is now solved. I don't seem to be getting the issues I had before, and my virtual TTY's are available. I followed the Gentoo wiki and reconfigured my Xorg. It took about 30 seconds. Have a look at the section entitled 'Automatic Generation of xorg.conf', which can be found here:...

Can I Install BOINC from the Repos?

Hi, all! I'd like to install BOINC, but it doesn't seem to be available in Entropy Store. I found this article about installing BOINC on Gentoo, but wondered whether I need to do the same in Sabayon. http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Installing_BOINC_on_Gentoo Can anyone offer any information? Thanks, ...

Re: How Can I check for Proprietary Software?

You can get a list of FSF approved licenses here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_FSF_approved_software_licenses Please also see: /etc/entropy/packages/license.mask.example Thanks, I'm very aware of FSF's stance and the '4 Freedoms', that wasn't my question. I'll have a look at the second link...
