Found some Sabayon 5.5 releases

Post by gentoovortex » Fri Feb 06, 2015 16:58

Unpacked some boxes after moving to Bali and found a bunch of old Linux disks including Sabayon 5.5 Gnome, KDE, LXDE and Xfce plus a Gnome 6. Kind of felt nostaglic and threw in the 5.5 Gnome in an old Compaq laptop and booted it. Sigh! The good ol' days with Gnome 2 and 2.6.37-sabayon, x86, boot music (Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame by Pornophonique) and Sulfur. :D I had to install it and try an equo update just for fun and the result was a somewhat expected "Attention: repository does not exist online." :lol:

Click on the screenshot for a blast from the past:

GUI's?? We don't need no stinkin' GUI's!!!

Sabayon Openbox/Fluxbox / Gentoo Fluxbox / Funtoo Fluxbox / Slackware-Current Fluxbox / Crux Openbox

i also collected (links and or ISOs) of the antique Sabayons.

I published an article about this, it is in Portuguese Language, but the links can be clicked..

I particulary enjoy the Sabayon Full, the 4.0r1 version.
It can be downloaded from my public download adress in my DropBox: ... 64Bits.iso ... 32Bits.iso

i also saved and uploaded for download, the latest versions of Sabayon 32 Bits.

I advise that these old Sabayons are usable, but not upgradable. Even when you use Portage for the upgrade, i have in mind that they can br broken, because EAPIs, SLOTS and profiles are different

Wow, cool. I remember the boot music and Gnome 2 days. The boot music actually used to irk me, because it really slowed down my old hardware at the time, haha.
BSD is what you get when a bunch of UNIX hackers sit down to try to port a UNIX system to the PC.
Linux is what you get when a bunch of PC hackers sit down and try to write a UNIX system for the PC.
