I've installed Sabayon 3.4e 32bit on my Asus G1S. It was good and all, till I decided to attempt to do the world update. This caused my Sabayon Install to go berserk, with things that just make no sense, such as:
- eix pidgin says that pidgin is installed, but KDE cannot find the executable bin file. I tried emerging pidgin again (twice, too) but no difference
- Beryl isn't as smooth as what it used to be
- mp3 playback and sound playback is broken. Amarok starts, but doesn't play mp3s because xine is busy or something. Also, there is no greeting sound when starting sabayon
- and many others
Instead of solving each problem one by one, I'd rather go back to all what it was like before. I've learnt my lesson now: the world update indeed wasn't for the feint of heart (even though I used to world update in my gentoo box with little problems).
I heard that there is a way where you can get your 3.4e DVD to recover your installation? Does this apply to my case? What about my configurations? Will I, for example, lose my Firefox bookmarks, perhaps? What about my files?
and while we're at it.. I've got 3.4e 32bit installed. I also heard you can updgrade to 3.4f simply by booting off the DVD and using it. Is it possible to switch from 32bit Sabayon to 64bit this way as well?
