Thanks wolfden. The link you posted makes me less willing to try. I'm certainly not ready to make my own ebuild, and this project has way too many dependencies. But, I did find these sites for compiling boxee for gentoo: http://forum.boxee.tv/showthread.php?t=2309 http://howto.wikia.com/wiki/Howto_insta ... ntoo_Linux
And somewhere I read that someone did get it to work on Sabayon. I really like Sabayon, and finding a way to watch Netflix videos on it would make me even more happy. Netflix really is the only reason I still maintain a dual-boot. I'm even considering installing Ubuntu just so I can use the boxee binary already compiled for it. Or. . ., as you say, maybe if I can just be patient, it'll eventually make its way to other distros like Sabayon--in due time.
