I am completely new to Sabayon but so far I liked it a lot. However, before Sabayon I used to use ubuntu but couldn't take all the bloat. The only problem that I have been having has been getting my head around package management. I installed the mini edition onto my laptop (a 2 ghz p4 with a gig of ram micron), threw my usual stuff on it (movies, pdf's, music) and tried getting online and noticed that Flash wasn't working, Falling back on my past application installing experience, I tried to use emerge from portato to perhaps find some sort of codec? but figured it might be safer to try installing something like a snes emulator which I would probably do later. So, I went to games-emulation, then snes9x and clicked, Emerge, then Emerge again and It said Calculating dependencies for about 15 minutes and concluded with it failing. (error code 1)
So, I tried looking online for videos, etc. etc. since I noticed I am way out of my territory with portage and package management. However, almost every site and video I found had a large amount of moon speak and absolutely no point to point examples and simple explanations. So, I conclude with.... WTF?!?!?!
