Yesterday i used my not updated 4.0 r1, for writing the posts.
now i logged into the 4.2 update, same comp. i have multiple boot.
i have also two possibilities... using Xdelta,or "making" an Full 4.2 r', installing the packages of the 4.0 r1, all in new versions, over an working 4.1 GNOME or KDE or wanting from the 4.2 official version...
I continue to post here, since i consider the problem interesting for the developers and testers of the Sabayon Linux.
May be hardware related... This is an Athlon DX2, AMD 6000+, 64 bits.I have 2 HDDs, in one of then, master, i have the 4.0r1 Sabayon, not updated, 4.1 GNOME also with KDE 4.2.3, aon other graphical interfaces, fully updated until 4.2 beta ((Im using this boot at this moment) and also Mandriva 2009.1, Gentoo 2008 updated , and in the slave HDD i have Windows 7... and Arch Linux, all all fully operating,
including the 4.0 r1, in condition that is not updated, works. But even the automatic verification of the Entropy verification applet, i removed, because it caused... slower navigation after running....
As aditional information, i some triws i used only entropy, iin others only portage, all over a clean 4.0 r1 installation.
When i tried only with Portage, i used "Entropy's" Portage version, since the Gentoo's Portage new version is actually Hardmasked, but it is not the problem, since i use the hardmasked newer Portage in Gentoo itself...
Only if i install applications that not uses os changes Python, as krusader 1.9, Metisse, bui if i try to install equo, for example, or python, or portato or applications that uses python... and the comp installation turned problematic
including with Reiserfs partition errors.
This may be hardware related, since in the University, i have another comp, an Sempron 1800, in witch Sabayon 4.o r1 was installed in January, 2009, and from this, many updates were carried out, until now, and the comp is now a full 4.0 r1, fully updated to 4.2 beta, KDE 4.2.3, KDE 3, New GNOME, nex XFCE, new LXDE, new Python etc... including, some packs were updated with portage, example GCC 4.3.3... in this machine all working....!
Seems to me that something in one of my comps turns Python not more compatible..
The 4.2 versions are in my comps, also visualy better. the colors, the resolution the video 3D effects, are also brighter, more beautifull and faster.....
