I've tried Sabayon in the past, and been quite impressed. However, for the past 2 years, I have mostly used PCLOS and Mandriva.
However, Mandriva is crashing terribly with my 2 main boxes these days, and I have to try something different. So, here I am, back to play with Sabayon for a while.
Here is my challenge...
I have a Toshiba R-100 Portege notebook (as small as a mac-book air, but 4 years earlier). Anyway, it does NOT have an internal optical drive, NOR can it boot from a USB optical drive (except for a proprietary one that costs about 300 bucks or more, that is probably not even available anymore).
Anyway, long story short, I have a small partition that I use for livecd iso images, and I edit grub's menu.lst so I can boot MOST live cds. But, depending upon the livecd technology used, some prove more challenging (even impossible) to boot.
I tried booting sabayon with the below menu.lst entry, to no avail. It rolls along okay until an error saying something like "can' find" or "not valid" root device. Specify the proper root device, or type "shell" to drop into a shell.
Can anyone help me boot the sabayon live cd (dvd) from my hd0,6 partition??
