Hi fellow sabayon users. Actually know the structure via my solaris days, but....
I was prepping a new system (to sit at relative's house so I didn't need to drag laptop with me ), and was copying items from /etc/X11/xorg.conf from my primary desktop. Bad habit, I "edited" the primary good file by accidentally removing a single character. oops.
Thus, I installed my primary home desktop 4+ times, beating the poor owner(me) to pulp, as I accidentally had removed one character in the config file. major oops
I was near the idea of buying a different video card. Fortunately, I'm a bit neurotic about backups and redundancy. I thus had a snapshot copy of /etc from every 90 days going back 2 years at least tucked away in an encrypted container on the /home raid pair yippee for backups. I've always joked "disk space is cheaper than time spent cleaning out backups" which proves true once again. In troubleshooting, I also went through the process of revalidating the overclock on my amd 8350fx (4.8Ghz aircooled, but bought "on sale" water cooler to try it out....note, keep a fan moving air inside the case to cool the other various parts near the CPU. darned thing is fast as heck, no complaints, and I like supporting the underdog when they produce a half decent part like this)....
Have a good laugh. I did, really, once I knew what the deal was.
If you want to talk about your personal paperweight, you've found the right place!
