Sabayon Cinnamon Edition

Post by hotchilli » Thu Mar 16, 2017 6:55

Hello everybody.
I was thinking : why is this excellent OS delivered in so many flavours, but not with the Cinnamon DE too? I believe it really lacks this very nice graphical interface. Is there any technical problem that prevent using Cinnamon or it is just a not yet tested field? So, I'm asking the Sabayon developers to take into consideration such an eventuality.

Thank you

If you ask me I don't see the point of editions/flavours.

After installing the Minimal/Fluxbox image you can install any WM/DE from Sabayon binaries or Gentoo ebuilds.

Sabayon used to have a Cinnamon spin (live DVD), but it doesn't seem to have been popular enough to maintain. It does still have the packages and you can install like sebaro pointed out. ... 5,standard
