Hello, i am an italian user. I have a VIA CHROME9 HC IGP WDDM video chip and it's incompatible with opensuse, ubuntu and mandriva. My video card is compatible with Sabayon?

It should be in the kernel already but you can try 3.4 mini just in case.

During startup of the cd /dvd you might have it hang the first time if it does this then there is cheat codes:

cd boot menu press F5 and text appears at bottom of page then add say :
res=1024x768 xdriver=via noacpi --
Something along this line can work or others. xdriver=vesa will get it working and can later change the display driver to via-igp or whatever is the correct name for the via driver / module.
modprobe via-igp
or
doload=via-igp
replacing via-igp with correct name can work as well.

PS> we have a Italian section maybe it might be easier to get a answer there or one that makes sense .
