5.5? [Solved]

Post by triggerfish » Sat Mar 27, 2010 1:36

Having a hard time with all release 5 so i try the brand new one hoping it would install...no luck! :-( it dies at the installer. Granted other distros work np. Really want to use Sabayon though. im installing kde version but i doubt any version will work if past 5.x experience.
