I realise the Sabayon forums are a very convenient and easy way to discuss our likes, dislikes, problems, requests questions about Sabayon Linux.
We do try our best to supply as much information as we can about Sabayon, and we try our hardest to make sure it functions happily. However, occasionally bugs and glitches will pop up. These are matters we can't control - they just happen and they need to be fixed. Sometimes it's a bug in the program itself, sometimes it's a problem with how we've packaged that program. There are numerous causes. These issues are where all of you Sabayon user can help us. If you run into something that you are convinced is a bug, and not user error, instead of reporting it on the forums, please report it on our bug tracker.

Sabayon's Bugzilla is a centralised area where all the bugs are listed and they can be assigned to people to fix the bugs. It's easily searchable so you can see reported bugs on a package, and it's very organised. It would be greatly helpful to us if bugs were reported there instead of on the forums. Please help us to help you and make use of Sabayon's Bugzilla!

The address for our bugtracker is:

When reporting bugs, please be sure to include logs, a pastebin of the error including the prompt where you ran the command to where it crashed and the traceback. whether it's reproducible or not. The more information you provide us on the bug tracker, the better. If it's a problem with drivers, please also include the hardware list lspci or lsusb provides, and a list of loaded drivers from lsmod.

Plus when you report a bug you are much more likely to get a response from a Dev, and your issue is more likely to be resolved :D

Then perhaps registering would be a good idea? ;)

Re. Sabayon's Bugzilla: when you need to report a new bug in the Entropy category you notice that the OS menu you are presented with is outdated: Sabayon 3.5, 4.0, 4.1, and no later versions of Sabayon listed.

Would you please update the menu...

I suggest you post your bug report regarding the Installer on the LiveDVD under:

Product: Sabayon Linux
Component: Live (Component Description: "Issues that occur during a livedvd session")
Version: 5.x KDE or 5.x Gnome, or whichever other edition of SL you are filing the report against
Severity: choose the appropriate severity from the pull-down list
Hardware: choose your hardware from the pull-down list
OS: Sabayon Mainline (or Sabayon DAILY instead if you're filing a report against a DAILY ISO)

I actually found some errors that it is definite that are ignored as the system but post them in bugzilla
The following are herrores
after a successful installation of sabayon 5.5 G the system works correctly, but if you install the updates that indicates the system passes the following
1 no ntfs partitions can be mounted even after reinstalling ntfs3g this requires manually editing the file policykit
2 fail access panel nautilus does not open or otors user folder locations are in places, to enter nautilus is necessary first to enter a team and then go to the folder you want
3 if fusion-icon is activated the screen goes completely blank, I know it still works because pressing the button goes off and usually enter
4 gnonme lost privilesgios in one hand an error indicating that no one is authorized and can not change the time

I should mention that previously had all these updates installed without problems but I installed gradually as they were leaving for a matte the system error and had to reinstall from scratch and have made ​​several attempts to update the problems are the same

working on a lap top
Toshiba Qosmio X505 sp8017M
processor core i7
nvidia video 360M
realtec wifi rtl8192se
sabayon 5.5 amd64 G

I think is all important

NIXXTREME, this thread is not for reporting bugs. Please create a forum thread if you want to discuss them, and create a bug report in the SL Bugzilla to report them to the developers.

Sorry, I use the google translator and do not copy everything.
My intention is to ask how I can properly make a bug report as it is the first time you send one.
