Hello! Today I have installed my first Sabayan distribution: http://mirrors.coopvgg.com.ar/sabayon/i ... _x86_K.iso
Long time ago I tried RedHat with KDE&Gnome and later I used Ubuntu CD to prepare PC for a fresh install or to check if system memory works properly. This I week I was using Ubuntu as my main system and I was really happy that finally Linux distribution was founding all the hardware, when Windows didin't (I tried Windows Developers Preview - 8 and was using Windows 7 before installing Ubuntu). But I missed things that I had in Windows, so I decided to try another distribution and Sabayan was mentioned as one of the 5 alternatives to Ubuntu (other 4 were just modified versions of Ubuntu).
In installed it on Toshiba Satellite L100 (with Intel Core 2 Duo CPU 1.83Ghz) to seperate 11gb partition and it automatically created swap partition for the remaining 3gb, even I had created 4gb swap partition for Ubuntu before. Can they I use one swap partitions for 2 different Linux distributions?
It all went good, but I couldn't connect with Wireless NIC to WLAN. It took me some time to realize that Sabayon found my wireless NIC and I have to scan for networks in another menu. After WLAN started to work the first thing I have done was to start Entropy Sulfur to download updates. I got messege that I need to update to RC79. After I choose to update application haven't closed and the message was still there, but I was offered to download 472 updates that needed about 3.6Gb of space. I thought that was to much considering ISO file was 2.2Gb. I took about 3 hours to download and update everything on my PC and after that I can't see pictures in Entropy Sulfur. After update it was suggested I remove Orphan files but I am new to the system & I haven't done it. I searched for Skype & Sulfur found it, but when I press right button I don't have option to Install. Neither there is this option when I doubleclick on Skype. As I understood from Sulfur wiki the use of Entropy is the same as is of Ubuntu shop, and I believe there should be menu with options when clicking right button as mentioned in the Sulfur wiki. Another problem is Chromium know has red boundaries around address field and I have never experienced this with Chrome or Chromium before. I believe that something was changed that was not intended by developers during this update, but I don't know how to track it and where to look. Please help me to solve this problem because I wan't to use Sabayon as a main OS and I need additional apps for that.
Thank you for reading! Please help!
