Just installed sabayon Gnome ... Now what? [Solved]

Postby iceman600 » Fri Jul 30, 2010 21:14

i just installed sabayon gnome ... amazing is all i can say. its faster and more smoother than ubuntu (for me tho) But im new to the environment. ive been reading the wiki a lot and im having problems installing programs i used to have on my ubuntu system...

problems i like to clarify are:
- how to add repositories?
in ubuntu all i do is sofware packages and add the ppa on tha add additional software... but here i can figure it out.

- how to auto mount my ntfs partition?
in ubuntu i just go to synaptics package manager and add the ntfs-config and there i can automount my ntfs partition.
i need this bacause i duak boot and mostly of my media files are on separate htfs farmat partition so im on my windows machine i can browse them too.

- and i try installing miro using equo and nothing happens... heres a screenshoot.

To install an application, you'll need to run that same command as the root user.

So, in a terminal:
Code: Select all
$su
<root password>
#equo install miro --ask


As for the repositories, there aren't many repositories in Sabayon like there are in Ubuntu. There are a few, but depending on what you're looking for, the main repo might have everything you want.

However, I'll go ahead and point out one repo I know of (which includes instructions as to how you should enable it) viewtopic.php?f=76&t=20513

As for the ntfs issue, I'm not sure, but I know that this can be done in fstab.

(Look at mount at boot, it should all be installed for you already)

I have used Ubuntu before I swap to Sabayon. There are lots of things that you don't have to do but you had to on Ubuntu. Sabayon and Gentoo use source packages, not .deb, .rpm or other packages. Repositories are built-in in the system already and you don't have to add any other repos like on Ubuntu. When you install in terminal, do exactly what it says! On the screenshot it says Would you.... [Yes/No] so you have to confirm the changes by typing "Yes", not "yes" like you did..:)
There used to be a package called "gnome-volume-manager" for the automount of any kind of partition(NTFS/extX..) but the package has been removed recently because the end of support or what. Right click on the panel(top, bottom, anywhere you want) "Add to panel" choose "Disk Mounter" and click on "Add". When you want to mount the partition, just left click on it and choose mount or unmount. You can also add an entry to Fstab but it's not necessary..
