Sabayon is not Debian based, but Gentoo based. So 'apt-get' (which is the package manager for Debian won't work). On sabayon you have 2 package managers: portage and entropy.
Portage is the package manager inherited from Gentoo, it is meant for the more experienced users who want to compile everything...
Entropy is Sabayon's equivalent to apt-get. It is binary based and compatible with portage.
If you don't know what you are doing, meaning you don't have a lot of experience with the package managers it is recomended to use entropy and leave portage aside.
Entropy has 2 front-ends
1) equo: this is a command-line tool just like apt-get. To install vlc for example you execute the following command as root
- Code: Select all
equo install --ask vlc
2) sulfur: this is a UI for equo, the equivalent of 'Synaptic package manager'.
