the names never changed on the tracker, the tracker was up before the mirrors had the iso even.

We only release official releases, we do not release Release Candidate isos, if we did it would be 5.1-RC1

what does the title say?
Sabayon Linux 5.1-r1 GNOME and KDE: Stable release

what is is name of iso on server?
Sabayon_Linux_5.1-r1_amd64_K.iso
Sabayon_Linux_5.1-r1_amd64_G.iso


what is soooooo confusing?
Ok, I'll take a stab at answering the rhetorical question... because users are assuming that Sabayon Linux 5.1 would be named... Sabayon Linux 5.1? Because the enigmatic "r1" creates a confusing first impression of being a release candidate or some other draft? Because "X1000" would be a far cooler enigmatic alphanumeric combo than "r1"?
look at the title:
Sabayon Linux 5.1-r1 GNOME and KDE: Stable release

see the -r1?

now lets look at the iso file
Sabayon_Linux_5.1-r1_amd64_K.iso

see the -r1?

they match, as stated, we only put official releases on the mirrors, and it's always been like that.

You are really passionate about this, aren't you? :-) The point is that no one knows what the "r1" means, and since that's not been a consistent part of the naming scheme, and some people haven't been around since Sabayon 1.0, it made some wonder if the appended "r1" meant something special. There's no stupid questions, and you can't be too careful, right? Some also may have wondered if the wrong file was accidentally announced/uploaded. It happens. Especially in my email attachments. :-)

sigh,

Did you miss the post with the link to the planet that explains it?

here it is again
http://planet.sabayonlinux.org/

direct link
http://wgo.wolf911.us/?p=285

If you look at our naming convention, it's far from anything consistent - we've had Pod, Loops, MCELite, minis, revision F even .... and if you notice they will say - Beta Release, Developmental Release, Stable Release etc....

Sabayon Linux 5.1-r1 GNOME and KDE: Stable release
Sabayon_Linux_5.1-r1_x.iso is the Official Release of 5.1-r1

Hi all,
I had troubles on SL 5.0 Gnome on my old laptop. Then I bought a brand new one(signature) and have troubles on SL 5.1 again.:D I can't even boot into X at all in the safe mode. I tried some cheat codes but no luck. My old laptop has VGA nVidia Ge Force 7300, so it works on SL 5.1(I'm writing from it now) but doesn't work on SL 5.0. My new laptop(signature) has troubles on SL 5.1 but works on SL 5.0...:)

Hi wolfden,
I know but I haven't solved my previous topic on SL 5.0 yet. I use Ubuntu 9.10 as a primary system so I don't need to solve this problem because SL 5.0 still works fine. I have nVidia GT 230M with CUDA on my new laptop and the app BOINC(GPUGRID project) on Ubuntu says that there is no any nVidia VGA so there might be a connection why SL 5.1 doesn't work on it...
Cheers for the reply anyway..:)
