- "fast"? - hmm: IMHO Sabayon is relatively slow to boot due to its exceptionally thorough device detection, then [if relevant in your case] the slooooow initiation of the proprietory [beta] NVIDIA driver; followed by the [quite brisk] loading of the Beryl manager . . but very few if any other distros offer equivalent device-detection or eye-candy, so if you want these qualities you'll have [at present] to put up with this relatively slow startup.rozojc wrote:Hi, I hope I'm posting this in the wrong forum, if not, pls exucuse me (and my english)
I'm an (I suppose) "intermediate" linux user, currently running on Ubuntu dapper. I'm thinking of switching distro, and I am really interested in trying out Sabayon, however, I'm looking for a fast distro, and my thoughts are as follows:
Sabayon is based in Gentoo, which is supposed to be really fast. On the other hand, the standard Sabayon install is based on binaries... Is Sabayon fast (a hard drive install)? is it faster than Ubuntu? Is the boot time faster? responsiveness?
Also, another possibility I'm looking at is going for Zenwalk, which is Slack based, and is lightning fast. The problem is that it's XFCE based and I'd rather use KDE... Does anyone know how Sabayon compares to Zenwalk?
Bigger question, taking into account the fact that I want to go to a fast distro, is Sabayon what I'm looking for? (I'm thinking the CD version, not the DVD one)
I hate to remind you, but this is SL forum, you wanna talk about debian and such I suggest going to their mailiing list and forums
