Just wanna say great guide! I'm not going to use it because I'm not experienced enough to be able to go through the problems and fix but for those who are I'm sure this is brilliant! We need more guides like this for Sabayon. Well done!

wolfden: that should be the update right? because for -e i get 1100+- packages since its like a stage 1 re-install..and that's after 5 hours of udept, removing apps, and world file trimming. Update i get 150+-..should be ok since i removed some.

Sadly this process isn't going very well on my fresh install of Sabayon 3.3 x64 edition on my Core 2 Duo laptop. The hardware recognition of Sabayon rocks, but so far I haven't had any success upgrading to the latest version of world. Are there any plans for the Sabayon devs to actually comment their package.mask configurations so we know WHY exactly something is masked?

layman -S = error

* Success:
* ------
*
* Successfully synchronized overlay "sabayon".
* Successfully synchronized overlay "einit".
* Successfully synchronized overlay "portato".
*
* Errors:
* ------
*
* The source of the overlay "einit" seems to have changed. You currently sync from "http://einit.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/einit/trunk/distro/gentoo/portdir_overlay" while the global layman list reports "http://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/einit/trunk/distro/gentoo/portdir_overlay" as correct location. Please consider removing and readding the overlay!

On mini 3.3

pre-flight checklist

Post by flick » Tue May 22, 2007 22:00

I'm using 3.3 x86_64 mini on an HP dv6000, Turion 64 dual core with an Nvidia card.

Just did a fresh install, ran the script to emerge the kernel sources. Emerged udept and ran dep -w to clean up the world file. Have not run emerge --sync. Did run layman -d einit to remove that overlay as I have no interest in using einit, and emerge -C mozilla-thunderbird for the same reason.

I plan to use emerge -pe system and emerge -pe world after I recompile the kernel and change the use flags ( really just the cflags, to match my cpu ). In theory, that will warn me of upcoming issues, yes?

And yeah, I'm well aware I could still hose the system -- hence doing it on a clean install.

Does it sound like I'm on the right track, if I follow Wolfden's guide closely and listen to portage?

well, I tried

:D

Did emerge -e system. Went fine up till it tried emerging python. Then my machine made a loud continuous beep, the screen froze, I couldn't even switch to a different virtual terminal. Rebooted...and the system won't boot. Typing this while using the livecd and doing a fresh install. Anyone else seen this particular hiccup?
