I'm new to Sabayon and Gentoo, but have been using Linux Mint for almost a year. I was trying to follow post 3.4e instillation advice on this page: http://www.sabayonlinux.org/wiki/index.php?title=Tips
And tried to run several commands, but the console didn't even recognize "dispatch-conf". (I did update portage though.)
I also successfully updated wine to 0.9.43 and Firefox to 22.214.171.124 through emerge, but they took about 20 minutes each on a relatively fast AMD 3800 X2 w/ 1Gig RAM. Is this really how slow everything installed from source will be?
Is there any automatic notification that some packages are important to be updated like Ubuntu type systems do?
