Well, some people would like to install it on a server with not fancy graphic card or no card at all. In both cases you can't install sabayon with a custom partition. Is this correct? Or I'm missing something?

That's the reason why I want to base ServerBase off CoreCDX on the next round. Any server can do basic vesa nowadays. No more reasons to use text-apps on VTs.

Well the basic vesa doesn't work on my servers as I constantly get a "not enough ram to run the graphical installer, run the text based one instead". Running the text installer doesn't allow partitionin.
So it's a catch 22 situation that takes off quite a bit of hardware nowadays.
