ok so i have a fresh install of the new 3.5 POD that was released.
i updated the repoistories to include the zenana database, but it keeps telling me that sabayonlinux.org is not available either through spritz or using equo update

here is the output that Spritz gives me

well i had a sabayon 64 bit on for quite a while then one day it wouldnt boot. so i decided to get the stable release but neither the 32 or 64 DVDs will boot. the only thing that worked is the POD version. so right now im stuck in windows cuz all i have is an xfce system that cant update anything.

I had a similar issue and fixed it with:

sudo equo world --upgrade 4

The PROBLEM was a missing release number...

Like:

http://svn.sabayonlinux.org/entropy/sta ... tabase/x86

SHOULD BE:

http://svn.sabayonlinux.org/entropy/sta ... abase/x86/4

If entropy does no find the URL specified, it complains about the database not being downloaded.

TEST:

Past your URL into firefox and see where it takes you.

You MUST see 'package.*' files otherwise you're in the wrong place.
Like:
packages.db
etc...

I hope that Sabayon 3.5 POD is old, and now, may be diificult to update, and if updated, may be unstable.
Also, is it possible that more recent 4.0 r1 or Lite MCE can boot. i have four Sabayon installations.
all are 4.0 r1 and/or Lite, fully updated to the 4.1, all works good.

Yup the 3.5 / pod is beyond rescue.

I tried it a few times and just gave up then went with gentoo 2008.1 and it is close to being or maybe more pain than pod but can be upgraded + moded via emerge close to 5 days at -j16 and not fun / not recommended.

If you have a lot of time and know what you are doing get the daily gentoo mini iso + latest portage and daily stage3 or funtoo stage3 and enjoy.

Server install from SL 4.? and then mod from there is alternative and likely more fun / effective.

Best is to wait a bit for 4.1 cd version.
