Newbie needs help

Postby aShoe » Wed Sep 30, 2009 3:56

I all I just installed Sabayon and am having a few problems. I cannot figure out how to update my system or install new programs. I've tried a few other distros but can't figure out where i need to go on this one.

simple run in a terminal in super user mode (type "su")
"equo update" will update all repository's
"equo world" will update application to newest release
"equo install (application name)" will install an application
"equo remove(application name)" will remove an application
"equo search (package name)" will search for a package of that name

alternatively you could use sulfur

The commands posted by garyclow are enough for daily use,
if you want to know more check the wiki:

also, I suggest you to use --ask when updating the system,
Code: Select all
equo world --ask
