Hi to all
I am new to the forum I have just recently discovered sabayon. I am also quite new to Linux as a whole (so, please forgive me if some of my questions are dumb!), since I only started using Ubuntu last year. Anyhow, I would like to try Sabayon, but I have a few questions:
1. first, I have downloaded the 3.4 dvd edition, and I was wondering what size I should use for the main partition. Can I choose what I want to install during ithe installation with the liveDVD? For instance, I don't think I want all the games installed. Moreover, my HD is rather small, and since I already have XP and Ubuntu, it is a bit crowded. Here is my fdisk-l:
PÃ©riphÃ©rique Amorce DÃ©but Fin Blocs Id SystÃ¨me
/dev/sda1 2 6185 5120000 1c Hidden W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/sda2 * 6185 30799 20379883 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda3 30800 71974 34092900 b W95 FAT32
/dev/sda4 71975 94384 18555480 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 74571 94384 16405992 83 Linux
Basically, sda3 is my data partition to share between Windows and Linux, sda1 is a hidden recovery partition that I would prefer keeping, sda2 is my windows partition and sda5 is my ubuntu partition.
I would like to shrink my windows one and my ubuntu one (where there 's 9.5 Go left) in order to create a new one with sabayon. Could I do that with the installer?
2. second, I tried the live dvd and my wireless wouldn't work. I have a rather recent laptop (Asus U1F) with an intel 3945 wifi card. It seems that there are some conflicting issues between sabayon and this wifi card. I suppose there is a way to make it work right? (maybe I should post that in another forum)
3. finally, I have got quite fond of the sudo apt-get install XXX of Ubuntu, wherease I have read that installing new programs is rather more involved with Sabayon. Is that true? Is that really more complicated?
Thanks for reading my rather long prose, and for any answers
