The only thing is, it switched the graphics from ati to xorg-x11, so I had to switch it back...

Code: Select all

equo update --force && equo install entropy --relaxed && equo upgrade
And, if you also want to to upgrade Sabayon's kernel, let me point out this wiki link: ... ng_Entropy
Hope you 'njoy!
Switching to Graphics-Card missing in the wiki. After use this instructions, automatically switch to xorg-x11. So I have nvidia and use manually to switch on them.

Code: Select all

eselect opengl list <show where the link pointed, in this case number 3 xorg-x11>
eselect opengl set <follow number of your graphics-card>
