'emerge -av nero' as root .

Assuming you have ran "emerge --sync && layman -S sabayon". first

lots of things aren't opensource -- what is to be confused?

wasn't aware that non open source apps were in portage, now i know. The people over at ubuntu forums are alot nicer, i guess you feel that talking down to new users makes you feel great, so here, i award you 5 internets for your trouble.

:lol:

That is why I asked above - why not learn it? It will make life much easier.

Nobody was talking down, simple direct questions. Ubuntu people have to change their way of thinking with this distro, it is not ubuntu or any thing close to it. Ubuntu isn't all opensource either so that is why I ask what is the confusion?

So keep your 5 internet points and stop being so prissy. :roll:

There is tons of documentation out there for Gentoo. The Sabayon Linux wiki and Gentoo wiki are things you will want to bookmark and refer to often. http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_Converting_from_or_to_Debian <-- will really be a helping hand to grasp the different commands. http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/ is where you are going to find documentation and the handbook. It is important to understand how this distro works as it is different. If you don't operate it properly you will have a huge mess on your hands down the road. I hope that helps you discover the differences and why it is important to know things. This distro has a learning curve and the above information will get you what you need.
