Thanks in advance, d0vada.

GNOME 3.6 is not yet in Portage. I don't know when it will be. GNOME 3 in Gentoo is not considered stable yet (yeah, in Gentoo all is very slow). Considering this, I would suggest to you open a bug report requesting the version bump.

About Linux 3.6, it is available on Sabayon Weekly. All you need is upgrade.

Code: Select all
kernel-switcher switch linux-sabayon-3.6-r3

The command appears to have had no effect on my Sabayon X installation, I've ran it both as a user and as root, can you reccomend another solution?

Code: Select all
$ uname -r
3.5.0-sabayon

You need to run it as root user, and you need to install the 3.6-r3 kernel package first:

Code: Select all
$ su
Password:
# equo update
# equo upgrade
# equo conf update
# equo install linux-sabayon-3.6-r3 # Belt and braces.
# kernel-switcher switch linux-sabayon-3.6-r3
# equo deptest
# equo libtest
# exit
exit
$

Then reboot.

@Fitzcarraldo

Thanks for tty commands, I ran them as you suggested and there were only two parts that I'm not sure if I should be concerned about, onr related to Nvidia / OpenGL and the other a missing dependency of eselect-boost-0.3.

I was on the irc.freenode/#gentoo channel last night and they reccomended to try the new Gnome 3.6 that I run this command, does it look right?

Code: Select all
TomWij: Add the overlay and make sure its synced, then do

`mv /etc/portage/package.unmask /etc/portage/package.temp && mkdir /etc/portage/package.unmask && mv /etc/portage/package.temp /etc/portage/package.unmask/unmask && ln -s /var/lib/layman/gnome/status/portage-configs/package.unmask.gnome3 /etc/portage/package.unmask/gnome3`
and proceed with emerging Gnome 3.


Thanks,

Forget the GNOME 3.6 stuff (which is Portage, not Entropy, and could bork your SL installation in any case) until you sort out your SL installation, which is not correct if you're getting that OpenGL error. I assume you do have an NVIDIA GPU? Is that the case? Are you using the closed-source NVIDIA driver (the package nvidia-drivers) or an open-source NVIDIA driver (the package xf86-video-nv or xf86-video-nouveau)? What do the files xorg.conf, /var/log/Xorg.0.log and /etc/conf.d/modules contain? What is the output of the following command?

Code: Select all
eselect opengl list

Yes I have a Nvidia 260 GTX and I'm using the close 310.19 drive, I have problems running the Nouveau drivers (the screen blinks black every 4 seconds and Ubuntu and other debian distros register the resolution at something like 1160x876 or something weird like that)

The output of eselect opengl list is:

Code: Select all
[1] ati
[2] nvidia x
[3] xorg-x11


/etc/X11/xorg.conf
http://pastebin.com/mfg6NaaV

/var/log/Xorg.0.log
http://pastebin.com/Wgjv4gsM

/etc/conf.d/modules
http://pastebin.com/qBu9mzdU

I've already rebooted with the new 3.6 kernel, GDM doesn't start until I rename xorg.conf and restart without one which gets me into Gnome 3 2D at this point.

Do you have any suggestions? Thanks :)

I downgraded to the 3.5 kernel for now, I think everything went smoothly, but I imagine I was missing the Linux Kernel 3.6 headers.

So I found the headers listed on the package website:
http://packages.sabayon.com/show/linux-headers,22891390,portage,arch,5,standard
http://packages.sabayon.com/show/linux-headers,22891390,portage,arch,0,standard

One of the links has arch,0 and the other arch,5 in the names - I can't determine if there's a difference between them at all.

I'm assuming the red means they're from the portage repository instead of entropy? I'll let you know how it goes.

Code: Select all
sudo emerge sys-kernel/linux-headers
sudo kernel-switcher switch linux-sabayon-3.6-r3


Edit 04:30

So I managed to find that the sources I installed from portage were specific to the stock gentoo kernel, It took me forever to find this package I wish rigo search would function better :\

Here's the package's name under Rigo:
Code: Select all
sabayon sources 3.6-r3

[url]https://packages.sabayon.org/show/sabayon-sources,92229,sabayon-weekly,amd64,5,standard/[url]

Edit 04:50

After installing the kernel headers, I was able to install the Nvidia drivers that match the kernel version and it worked:

Code: Select all
Nvidia Drivers 310.19#3.6.0-sabayon~0


Next step - Gnome 3.6 I suppose :)

Probably for the best. In my experience with gnome 3.6 is that its the buggiest gnome release in a very long time. It has several very annoying bugs, such as this huge and easily reproducible memory leak: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=685513

It's my understanding that once these Gnome 3.6 issues are resolved it'll go into portage and be possible to use a gentoo `$>layman` overlay to install.
http://dev.gentoo.org/~nirbheek/gnome/3.6/status.html

In the last few weeks of using Gnome 3.4 I've found that Gnome's way of using a desktop can be undone by installing extensions like Axe Menu and Window Icon List that make their GTK environment usable again.

I just wish that Gnome didn't remove their communicability, even Unity could be more tolerable if I could move their left handed panel to the bottom of the screen through a "Settings" dialog.

For now, I've fallen in love with the "Pantheon Desktop Environment", and as soon as ElementaryOS stabalizes I'll try to get a Sabayon Pantheon overlay or a ElementaryOS install.
