Here is what the AutoPartition has picked for me, I just simple have to hit Ok, pretty painless
+
The Partitioning scheme....
 +
 
 +
Here i choose to replace the excisting Linux system(s), which is also choosen by default.
 +
 
 +
If you have a multiboot with Windows, this is the safest thing to choose, as it leaves the vfat/ntfs partitions untouched.
 +
 
 +
Please read all the options carefully, and take caution before you select another option., and be sure to select
 +
 
 +
the checkbox, on the bottom, left corner, next to: Review and modify Partitioning layout,
 +
 
 +
as it allows you to modify the current choosen partitioning scheme.

On to setting up Grub, if you have an exising Grub, you can select no and just add the CoreCD entry to it.

This is where we reached the point of no return.  It's your last chance to modify your partitions.

Users with a GPT partitioning, has to choose their active partition, mostly /boot

Now you're pretty good to go. But you are probably wondering what to do next. First you need to decide what package manager system you are going to use.  I would recommend to start with entropy:

Remember this release is based on branch 4 and at this point and time we are in the process of getting Branch 5 out to the public.  So you may need to do an equo hop 5 to get to Branch 5 pending on when you actually downloaded this and if Branch 5 is up and running.  I just mention this so you can keep it in your mind.  You can certainly use Branch 4 for now to get stuff installed and worry about Branch 5 later.  To get to Branch 5
+
Feel free to upgrade your kernel if there is a newer one, you can do so using "kernel-switcher" on the commandline.
    # equo hop 5 && equo update && equo install entropy equo && equo world
+
 
+
Some notes about emerge -uDN world - there is a couple issues as of right now.  This is due to Portage being a head of Sabayon, so be prepared to work out a couple issues with this.  With the default Sabayon Linux config files I ran into:
+
 
+
1. a circular dependency with libsndfile and jack-audio-connection-kit:
+
    # USE="-jack" emerge libsndfile
+
 
+
2. a couple of blocks:
+
    # emerge -C virtual/perl-Compress-Zlib virtual/perl-IO-Compress-Base virtual/perl-IO-Compress-Zlib perl-core/IO-Compress-Zlib perl-core/IO-Compress-Base perl-core/Compress-Zlib
+
   
+
    # emerge -uaDN world
+
 
+
Now of course the proper thing to do is to setup your config files, rebuild all packages and than build your system.  This will save you from conflicts with portage.  The better you can config your files, the easier time you will have.
+
 
+
3. Also note that you will end up upgrading python as you use portage, so when done updating, don't forget to run:
+
    # python-updater
+
 
+
4. More than likely you are gonna need the kernel sources for stuffs
+
+
    # uname -r
+
to find your kernel version, than specify the version when u do install
+
 
+
    # equo install linux-sabayon
+
or
+
    # emerge sabayon-sources
+
 
+
so for example if my uname -r shows .29 kernel
+
 
+
    # equo install sys-kernel/linux-sabayon-2.6.29#2.6.29-sabayon
+
or
+
    # emerge =sabayon-sources-2.6.29
+
 
+
Feel free to upgrade your kernel if there is a newer one, just don't forget to build it and reinstall your modules
+
  
 
We hope you enjoy this very minimal cd version.

i18n: en it

Welcome to the visual tour of CoreCDX.

CoreCDX is a very minimalistic cd that comes with the Fluxbox GUI. It's meant for advanced users that want to take full control of what they want to have installed. It comes ready to work with entropy or portage right out of the box, and Xorg installed and configured.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-1.png

This is the first screen you are greeted with. I'm going to go a head and select the graphical installation and walk thru that. Console mode will give you a fully working command line interface and can be very handy for a rescue cd.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox.png

After making my selection the system is booting. Boot messages are hidden by default, but you can allways display them by hitting the ALT-F2 key combination. As described on the bottom of the boot screen.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-4.png

Now we are fully booted, and for a moment you can see a glance of the default Desktop, before the Installer comes up. If you are in console mode, the username is root, and passwordless, so just hit enter.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-5.png

So here we are, at the Anaconda Installer, First thing it wants is to select the language you would like to use during the installation, so Pick Your Language

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-6.png

Pick here Your Keyboard Layout - When selected, you can test your keyboard in the text field.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-7.png

Here you select on what type of devices you want to install Sabayon on.

Normally, you select here basic storage devices.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-8.png

Enter the hostname... pretty straight forwarded.

Also, you can choose here to enable, or disable the firewall (ufw)

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-9.png

Select your timezone. Anaconda offers to zoom in, or out, to make it easier to select your timezone.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-10.png

This is obvious: enter the root password. twice. Make sure to remember the password.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-11.png

And here, of course your (non root) username and password. Also twice.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-12.png

The Partitioning scheme....

Here i choose to replace the excisting Linux system(s), which is also choosen by default.

If you have a multiboot with Windows, this is the safest thing to choose, as it leaves the vfat/ntfs partitions untouched.

Please read all the options carefully, and take caution before you select another option., and be sure to select

the checkbox, on the bottom, left corner, next to: Review and modify Partitioning layout,

as it allows you to modify the current choosen partitioning scheme.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-13.png

This is where we reached the point of no return. It's your last chance to modify your partitions.

When you hit next, Anaconda will ask you to confirmm and format the partitions.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-14.png

Confirming, and formatting the choosen partitioning layout.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-15.png

Select here to write the changes to Disc.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-16.png

Place to install the bootloader. Normally /dev/sda If other, you can change here.

Users with a GPT partitioning, has to choose their active partition, mostly /boot

as GPT does NOT use a Master Boot Record.

Installing Sabayon onto your Computer.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-18.png

Congratulations. The install has finished, and wants you to reboot.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-19.png

If everything went fine, and got rebooted, you will be presented with your Sabayon Desktop.

So first thing to do is open a xterm, (by right clicking the desktop, and select xterm)

login as root, and update the Repositories, by entering: equo update.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-20.png

Now, there is nothing wrong with xterm. in fact, it's very good., but i like some more eyecandy and dark colour, and thus i install "terminal" a lightweight, Desktop Environment independent terminal,. fully customizable.

so let's quickly do that: equo install terminal.

Now you're pretty good to go. But you are probably wondering what to do next. First you need to decide what package manager system you are going to use. I would recommend to start with entropy:

    # su
    # equo update && equo install entropy equo

And, eventually, we can do portage:

    # emerge --sync && layman -S

It's vital to learn package manager - Please see:

Entropy and HOWTO: The Complete Portage Guide. 

Feel free to upgrade your kernel if there is a newer one, you can do so using "kernel-switcher" on the commandline.

We hope you enjoy this very minimal cd version.
