I would suggest sticking to equo/entropy for new people. You'll get no benefit from using portage unless you configure your make.conf and you'll have to compile every package (takes longer). Most people say you'll only gain about 10% performance gain for all the hassle of using portage.

Thank you, Stupot, that's what I'll do. I'm hoping to get into the depths of all this a little at a time. Some things come sooner rather than later and I expect there'll be something else soon enough.

Hey, I've been having the same issue. I tried the steps here and when I got to the line

Code: Select all
/ect/init.d/xdm restart


I received an error saying there was no file by that name. I'm trying to boot Sabayon 5.1 off a liveDVD running a Dell Inspiron e1505 (6400). My computer is running Ubuntu 9.10 fine, and I've tried various xdriver= combinations as well as res= and pretty much everything that you can pull up on a Google search with this issue.

Suggestions?
