"Sabayon is an Italian dessert made with egg yolks, sugar, a sweet liquor (usually Marsala wine), and sometimes cream or whole eggs. It is a very light custard, which has been whipped to incorporate a large amount of air."

The World's first and fastest Gentoo Linux powered distribution now changes its name. A change of style and unification for the RR4/RR64 Linux projects. Our mission is simple: making things that just work, using one of the most scalable Operating System.

SabayonLinux x86/x86-64 miniEdition, commonly called the "mini", is the CD release of the latest SabayonLinux x86/x86-64 DVD. The creation of this special version, has been made by an automatic script that has shrinked down the whole chroot jail by removing every duplicated, useless or server-oriented package. The multimedia features of these special editions are kept intact. So, enjoy that beautiful piece of software on a single CD!

NEW FEATURES and BUG FIXES since the RC2 DVD Editions:
  • Added dmidecode (MacTel Computers detection)
  • Added GUID Partition Table support for GRUB and Anaconda
  • Added A20 Gate patches to GRUB to run that correctly on Intel Macs
  • Fixed KDM startup slowness
  • Added --> tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 --> to better support ATI video cards
  • Updated WINE to 0.9.19 on x86
  • Early Compiz startup (it starts before KDE)
  • fixed reiser4-gentoo-sources ebuild
  • Removed eth1394 module
  • This distribution contains libdvdcss look here if you live in the U.S. !.
  • This distribution contains proprietary and non-GPL softwares too (like from NVIDIA, ATI, Google, etc). Before running them, be sure to read their license and agree with that, otherwise, just remove those applications. To run SabayonLinux without Proprietary drivers, just use "noproprietary" boot flag.
  • Reiser4 is disabled on the Installer (to enabled it just add "reiser4" to your boot options) - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
  • Trademarks are property of their respective owners, everywhere.
