DO NOT like to read and NEED to install Thunderbird - DID I or didn't I??? :oops: it was a little confusing after Synaptic in another distro

So if possible PLEASE some help before this goes on ALL THREE systems :P

On the install I deleted ALL Linux Partitions and went straight to the install - do NOT know where this has left me as BEFORE :roll: I had a / partition a /home and a swap partition so do not know if I need to do this all over again and it was a KDE istall

Cheers for Years

I guess you are S.O.L. then. Unless you want to call me on the phone or do a live video conference, for which i charge $50 an hour.

If you decide that reading isn't so bad, then you could read the following links to learn how to use the package managers in Sabayon.

Hi thank you for your reply rand

Please excuse the delay as I FINALLY found this post on another computer of mine not the one with 3.5 on it :oops:

Have received the help needed to use Spritz etc and have installed Thunderbird too

My query with Sabayon taking over the Linux Partitions was intended to find out if this was OK or do I need a /, /home and Swap partition as I do in PCLinuxOS

Because as of now I may Sabayon on all three computers once I look at Printers especially the HP 9800's compatability

I run a / and swap only on my installs - I keep backups on an entirely different drive

You are free to make as many partitions for your system as you want tho. Some like to do /boot and /home

In my http://wiki.sabayonlinux.org/index.php? ... ayon_Linux you can see where I manually setup my partitions.

Sabayon is now being installed on the new AMD 4600+ with /, /home and Swap BUT --->>> :oops: I never do backups linux or that other operating system hehehe

Lappy is GOING to be TOTALLY Linux so where Sabayon stands with wireless detection is a little unsure for me as I need it to detect automatically as it did the Lan on Deskies

Thank you FOR SHARING time with me :D

I'm in the "some" group; I like to have four separate partitions: /boot, /, /home and swap.

There was a debate about having a separate /home partition in the following thread:

you don't need a /boot it's an optional thing, but 100mb is what is recommended if you do do a boot.

A /boot will not effect other operating systems as far as grub is concerned. Grub is the boot manager, /boot is a directory for your grub and kernel files.
