Live DVD Sabayon 6 XFce x64.. [Solved]

Postby pepe999 » Sat Aug 13, 2011 17:30

Hi all,
I downloaded the live DVD last night and would like to install it instead of the Gnome version because I don't really like Gnome 3. However, I can't connect from the live system to my home network. I can see the network but nothing happens when I click on it. I can create a new connection but when I click on save, it says that I have no sufficient privileges (probably the reason why nothing happens when I click on the network to connect). It's a live system and there should not be any privileges when connecting to the internet.. :shock:

Sometimes, in certain networks, Wicd works better than Networkmanager, but Networkmanager is the default.

in these cases, the best way to connect Net in the Live DVD env. is:
Open a Terminal and use this command as root:

Code: Select all
# net-setup (in some Sabayon versions maybe net-config)


and follow the directions given, this is the Gentoo Like equivalent of the command "pppoeconf" used by the Distros
that are based on Debian.

Carrying this, you will have the net connection in the Live DVD.

I installed Xfce an hour ago and the problem persists even in a fresh system. I closed the nm-applet icon and started a new one with sudo privileges "gksu nm-applet". No luck even with that. I can see the network but cannot connect to it. The system just doesn't react. There is no even clock settings. I can't change time because there is no any date and time option!! Horrible system. Daily release of Gnome from 10. 08. 2011 is worse that a nightmare. It works in a live system but doesn't after a fresh install (some strange message comes up with log on and gdm). I'm sick of Sabayon, nothing works as used to. I guess that now is time to move on, like I did after Ubuntu 08.10... :x

You meant DAILY there I guess?
They are UNTESTED. If you like a working system I would recommend installing Sabayon 6 G.
If you do not want the Gnome3 trail/error simply wait with updating a bit.

Otherwise, have fun with Ubuntu.

I have got Sabayon 6 Gnome but there is still gnome 2 and I had a problem after some updates to boot up. This is why I downloaded a daily iso because gnome 3 is already there. All I want is a working system. Ubuntu 7.10 was the best linux I have ever had. Everything worked perfectly but newer versions made me switch to Sabayon. Sabayon 4.X to 5.6 fine with some little troubles but now it's the same like on Ubuntu before. A good system is getting worse but I agree that gnome 3 is the main reason. I have never used anything except gnome because I liked it. Xfce is similar so I thought that it would be a good replacement but it's not working properly. The XFce version I got is not daily, it's a proper release..
I'll try this: http://distrowatch.com/?newsid=06724

If you enjoy KDE, Sabayon K works fine...

I was an enemy of KDE because it looks like Windows for me, I mean the bottom panel, Menu etc..
However, nothing lasts forever so I could actually "change my mind" and install a system with KDE. I have downloaded a live DVD of Gentoo 11 and it's not bad desktop at all..

I have found out that there are no drivers for Intel 6200/6300 wireless cards. There are old ipw2100/2200 drivers but no any iwl6000 drivers like in the Gnome version. Wicd doesn't work as well, typical "bad password" error and also 1.7 buggy version so no wireless on XFce. I'll try the KDE version and will see..

Hi,
I decided to keep my old Gnome system. It's still looks like old Gnome (Applications and Places on the top panel). I just cloned both system partitions from the old SSD using "dd" commands..

It's a bit slow but works well and I didn't have to even reinstall Grub..:)
