What happened to Steambox Sabayon??

Postby hydrosIII » Fri Dec 20, 2013 9:37

Hi. I'm a user of Sabayon having it installed in one machine alongside archlinux. I was looking to install Sabayon into a couple of a friend machines, recommending it. because of tthe preinstalled Steam. However the links to Sabayon Steambox seems dead. The anouncement in Sabayon's home page gives 403. Why Sabayon Steambox was removed?? Copyrigth issues?? SteamOS official release???


PD.Fortunatedly, i could retrieve a .iso file of sabayon steambox from an outdated mirror. But even the torrent file gives an error downloading.

A Valve representative asked me not to call the image "SteamBox" so I had to remove it.
However, Sabayon 14.01, which contains Steam (and the Big Picture mode boot option, aka SteamBox mode) is about to be released in 1-2 days.

Yes, then:
Code: Select all
systemctl enable steambox


and then append "steambox" to the boot command line.
