Thank Wolfden for the reply, However, when i run "equo update", it says that there is a newer version available. How can i update equo? Here is the output:
Code: Select all
localhost sabayon # equo update --force
>> Repository sabayonlinux.org hasn't been downloaded yet.

Updating equo is as updating any other software:
Code: Select all
equo install entropy equo spritz

your equo update --force didn't go thru try again
if all else fails

layman -S
emerge --sync

emerge entropy equo spritz

equo update

equo install entropy spritz equo

Strangely, i found another problem. I tried installing gcc, and here is the output:
Code: Select all
localhost SS # equo install gcc
>> !!! No match for gcc in repositories.
>> No packages found.
>>  @@ Caching complete.

This all happened when i followed a guide (http://wiki.sabayonlinux.org/index.php?title=HOWTO:_3.5_Pod_adding_portage)
I ran equo update --force, and it worked fine. Then equo install entropy, then the next one equo world. After that, i got the above terminal output. Any ideas?

Update: I tried running equo update --force, and got this message:
Code: Select all
localhost SS # equo update --force
>>  * No repositories specified in /etc/entropy/repositories.conf

not strange at all if you don't have a database

Why didn't you get the latest release to start with? 3.5 mini is a walking disaster as it is missing many important things

Wolden-
The reason why i dont have 4.0 is because i dont have DVD discs, only CD. Unless there is a way of booting it from a 32GB jump drive, which i have.
Crisandbea-
I checked that file and it is empty. What should i write in it?
