This distro has all the beauty of gentoo, but comes easy for beginners. The dvd iso is insane!! it has almost any app you could want! 2 different office suites, over 15 different mediaplayers for your preference, comes with nvidia and ati drivers built into Xorg so you don't go through the hassle!!
It has its own forum, and great support!!
Hi, could I ask a dumb question? I'm using Mepis 6 and need xvkbd to type with. on the Mepis live cd, you can drag the binary over to the home directory in the ram drive and run it. On Sabayon live dvd it's missing a lib file Xaw3dsomething but that's ok. My question is now that Sabayon is installed, with the help of a friends typing, how do I install xvkbd? I know is in the portage tree, but kuroo doesn't list it. do I need to add gentoo mirrors or unmask something? Can you point me to how to do this? I've always wanted to try gentoo but the cli only works if you can type with a keyboard. Sabayon looks sweet!
All Sabayon is, is Gentoo installed through binaries instead of being compiled from scratch. I don't personally know anything about Kuroo, but anytime you need something you can Portage just like any other Gentoo user can. So all of the Gentoo documentation applies to you as well. So here is your first intro to portage: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...?part=2&chap=1
Note that Portage dosen't have a gui frontend, not an offical one anyway. So don't be afraid to use the CLI it's good for you.
SabayonLinux x86/x86-64 miniEdition, commonly called the "mini", is the CD release of the latest SabayonLinux x86/x86-64 DVD. The creation of this special version, has been made with an automatic script that shrinks down the whole chroot jail by removing every duplicated, useless or server-oriented package. The multimedia features of these special editions are kept intact.
