Start a small live CD, (a Sabayon one... Lxde for instance), then open a console, type:
# //then you are root
then type this:
# equo update && equo install lshw
# lshw > lshw.txt
(do not type the signs '$' and '#' the '$' just means you have user permissions in the console, and the '#' you have got the root/admin priviledges in the console, after typing 'su' and hitting the 'Enter' button : su means "substitute user", and when you don't say which user, the default is root.
To sum up, you type 'su' when you need admin rights to perform administrative tasks.
Then paste the whole content of lshw.txt here on the forum, between code tags. It means your first click on the button "Code" of the editor, and inside the tags you paste your text.
- Code: Select all
Is there anything more which I could explain to you, or is it ok ?
/may I ask you if you installed your Sabayon yourself ? If yes, didn't you find it difficult, or has it been smooth ? (trying to remember the fright first time I installed a distro, a few years ago... )
