Did you do the following?
Note: if you want to use Portage instead of Entropy, you have to download one of the two files below, depending on your chosen architecture:
- Sabayon Pod x86 3.5 Portage db
- Sabayon Pod x86-64 3.5 Portage db
and unpack them to /var/db/pkg
I don't use the SL POD (CD) version, but I suspect layman is not supplied by default, so have you merged layman?

Code: Select all

emerge -av layman

i can emerge _nothing_.
[...]
('ebuild', '/', 'sys-apps/man-pages-3.04', 'merge') depends on
('ebuild', '/', 'sys-apps/man-1.6f-r2', 'merge') (medium)

* Note that circular dependencies can often be avoided by temporarily
* disabling USE flags that trigger optional dependencies.
