I'm looking forward to seeing the new release in action. I'm hoping that v3.4 resolves a problem I've experienced on one of my computers with every previous version. The computer is an older dual P3 with a 3ware 7500-4 ide raid controller. I use 4 40GB drives as two mirrored pairs. I partitioned the drives manually during install. Sabayon 3.3 ran fine as a live distribution, but just like previous versions, after installing it had problems with the pair assigned as my /home. On reboot the partition wasn't mounted, and according to gparted there was a bad magic number in super-block reported. I'd log in as root, re-partition the drive, format the partition, re-create the user data, and was able to log in as the user. At reboot I faced the same situation. It's strange that Sabayon had a problem with drives that another major distribution beginning with S used with no problems.

I liked Sabayon until it switched to Rigo and becoming the gentoo equivalent of Ubuntu. Extreme browsing? Extreme gaming? Extreme work? Extreme development? Like, totally gnarly, dude!

I was just wondering if someone with 3.4a already installed could answer me a quick little question.

The release says it it using kernel 2.6.22. Now is it actually using the exploitable 2.6.22 or is it using the exploit fixed kernel, which was released 14 days ago?

For those not knowing... ... g-

I've been watching this distro for some time but never really tried it as i didnt really like how bleeding edge it seemed. However it seems to be moving more towards the stable side of things so im deciding to give it a try. Don't think i'll be unhappy but only time will tell.

Either way good work to the team, much appreciated :)

Thank you for all your hard work, team Sabayon. Looking forward to the new version, once it's downloaded (only 16 days left according to KTorrent, yay...) :D

<re earlier post saying I was DL from a mirror- DONE. ish)

PLEASE keep your torrent up for say an hour after hitting 100%...

:( I've got the DL "in full" from a mirror, and started Ktorrent, but running the checker 1st says 3 chuncks bad.

As soon as they are fixed (..and I can see guys hitting 100% and dropping out) this machine will go into upload torrent mode for about 10 hours.

That should help the torrent speed - BUT I'm stuck fixing those chunks, as people do not keep their boxes up for long !! I only need 10Mbytes - but I'm getting broken up all the time.
