We're working/developing/testing/playing with Entropy. So, we ship new releases ready to be b0rked testing equo (entropy client) and, in the meantime, we add some fixes/improvements. What's wrong with that? It's still 3.4, not 3.5, 3.6, 3.7...

All

The reason as to why many Desktop PCs and Laptop PCs become unresponsive is because of the fact that the NVIDIA Corp. device driver for NVIDIA GeForce Graphics Processing Units contained within Sabayon GNU/Linux 3.4E and Sabayon GNU/Linux 3.4F contains major problems and therefore it is the root cause of the unresponsive state many Computers enter. It is not the fault of Fabio Erculiani that the device drivers included within the latest version of the Operating System are causing problems for many people, including myself, however as far as I am aware, NVIDIA Corp. are to release a new device driver to address multiple problems in relation to their products this coming week therefore many problems may be resolved in due course.

It is NVIDIA Corp.'s responsibility to resolved problems within their product; however I hope it be considered that within further versions of the Sabayon GNU/Linux that a replacement of NVIDIA Corp.'s Closed Source device driver with a Open Source device being developed at this current time be implemented; I for one am disappointed that NVIDIA Corp. have not released an updated device driver for 80 days regardless of the fact that the Corporation is aware of the major problems its device driver is causing.

Well, in case of version 3.4f there is also a problem with ATI, I guess... The kicker freezes in both livedvd and after install if desktop acceleration is enabled. No chance for operational Compiz-Fusion :(

It is possible... Especially that apart from that everything works perfectly. Then I guess we need to wait for a stable version of Compiz-Fusion ;P

If you are having freezing problems using compiz-fusion, I can tell you its no different on the regular gentoo either or for that matter with debian or ubuntu, its the animations plugin that causes the majority of the problems, and its real important to clean up your xorg.conf, no multiple mouse entries that can confuse x or invalid module or font paths. The majority of the freezes for me have always occurred when the machine would go to screensaver and sit idle a couple of hours. I have a workaround for desktop computers which works, you can find it at

@billydv is that a new way to commerce? ;) saying you have to install electricsheep to fix NVIDIA issues??
looks a little weird to me ;)
but I also had some freezes on 3.4e on my desktop not my laptop although Nvidia-settings told me I have a Geforce Go 6100 with 512mb memory but I can set my memory in the BIOS max to 128mb :roll: ...
my tip is to check you xorg.conf very good before you get in to your new installed system, so what I would do is to mount your new installed system on the live cd/dvd and edit the xorg.conf and maybe grub.conf first.
I do that this way:
[code]
# mkdir /media/system
# mount /dev/sda1 /media/system //replace sda1 to your '/' partition
# gedit /media/system/etc/X11/xorg.conf
[/code]
now I activate DRI support, set the refresh rates of my monitor and hide extra mouse core events in the section "server layout" of xorg.conf
[code]Section "ServerLayout"
# The Identifier line must be present

Identifier "Main Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen 1"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
>> #InputDevice "Mouse2" "SendCoreEvents"
#InputDevice "Synaptics1" "SendCoreEvents"
#InputDevice "wacom1" "SendCoreEvents"
#InputDevice "wacom2" "SendCoreEvents"
#InputDevice "wacom3" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"

EndSection[/code]
after that I set timeout in /boot/grub/grub.conf to 1 or 0 seconds because I don't need to switch or wait.

after that I'm done for so far, I always make it to the desktop without probs..
