Glad to become a member of Sabayon community. Sabayon looks very interesting to me. I wish to try it and use it as one of my main distros. However, I seem to have problems with installation.
I was trying to install on the slave disk sdb. It was empty. I didn't want to use the whole disk, so chose to manually partition.
The problem started with well-known installer (anaconda, I think) crash after committing changes to partitions. Tried installer update and patch - nothing worked. I had to go to cfdisk to make partitions, then choose them later in the installer itself. Everything went smooth after that, in the end GRUB installed on /dev/sdb.
Now comes reboot and I am greeted with "grub rescue>"
Anyway I needed to install another distro (KXStudio), so I thought well it will install GRUB also, and hopefully pick up Sabayon. I went with install and when I was presented with partitions to choose from on /dev/sdb there were NONE. Everything was suggested as being empty. So there was no Sabayon on the disk.
I thought that by installing on the slave and then booting from it will change the /dev/ numbers from sdb to sda and that might confuse GRUB, as it happened with arch. However, no partitions whatsoever is very strange indeed.
Md5sum was ok. I couldn't check if DVD is ok or not, as calling isoinfo -d -i /dev/cdrom command in terminal from Slackware didn't give me any alphanumeric strings to compare it with the correct one. I will try again maybe from inside the Sabayon DVD live.
So, I would really like to install Sabayon, any help will be appreciated.
