Welcome to the visual tour of Installing Sabayon.

In this Visual walk through we are using the CoreCDX Edition., but you can use any Sabayon Edition.

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 with Xorg installed and configured.

This visual walk through will guide you through the (graphical) install process.

Question.png
This is a Universal Graphical install, which means it's exactly the same on every ISO., whether you've downloaded the CoreCDX, KDE, Gnome, or Mate version.
Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-1.png

This is the first screen that you will see. I'm going to select the graphical installation.

Console mode will give you a fully working command line interface and can be very useful to create 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 always display them by hitting the ALT-F2 key combination.

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

Now we are booted into the default Desktop. If you are in console mode,

the username is root, and passwordless, so just hit enter.

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

The Anaconda Installer, select the language you would like to use during the installation.

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

Select your keyboard layout.

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

Chose which type of devices on which you would like to install Sabayon.

Generally you select basic storage devices.

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

Enter the hostname.

You can choose to enable, or disable the firewall (ufw)

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

Select your time-zone. Anaconda offers to zoom in, or out, to make it easier to select your time-zone.

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

Enter the root password. twice. Be sure to remember the password.

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

Enter your (non root) user-name and password. Also twice.

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

The Partitioning scheme.... Replace the existing Linux system(s) is also chosen by default.

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

Please read all the options carefully, and be careful before you select another option,

and be sure to select the check-box, on the bottom, left corner, next to: Review and modify Partitioning layout,

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

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

This is your last chance to modify your partitions.

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

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

Confirm, and format the chosen partitioning layout.

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

Select here to write the changes to Disc.

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

Install the boot-loader, normally /dev/sda if not, you can change it here.

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

as GPT does NOT use a Master Boot Record.

Screenshot-test -Running- - Sun VirtualBox-17.png

Installing Sabayon onto your Computer.

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

Congratulations. The install has finished, reboot.

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

After rebooting you will be presented with your Sabayon Desktop.

Open 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

If, like me' you prefer more eyecandy install "terminal" a lightweight, Desktop Environment independent terminal,

fully customizable. equo install terminal

Now 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

Or you could select portage (generally recommended for more advanced users):

   # emerge --sync && layman -S

It's vital to learn how to work with the package managers - Please see:

En:Entropy

En:HOWTO:_The_Complete_Portage_Guide

You can upgrade the kernel if there is a newer one available using Kernel_Switcher on the command-line:

En:Entropy#Using_Kernel_Switcher

We hope you enjoy this very minimal cd version.
