hi there,

i just try to install sabayon 14.11 but i can't

because the anaconda installer crash immediately after the installation begin (its crash when it create the partition).

anyone have an idea.

and for the developer team please fix the "vga=791" problem.

If you are still having trouble, avoid using LVM (that crashed the Installer for me, but ext4 partitions worked fine). While in the Live environment you can use e.g. GParted to create and format the partitions on the HDD before launching the Installer. You could also try using the text installer instead of the GUI installer. I've used the text installer successfully from the KDE LiveDVD, GNOME LiveDVD and SpinBase LiveDVD (see Installing Sabayon Linux using the text installer for instructions).
