Sabayon Linux

Filed under
Linux

The other day I met Gentoo, I tried to install it, and finally did it after four tries, and the one using the minimal installation did not work. I finally manage to install using the Live CD but only using the Networkless option one on VMWare and one in another partition of my disk.

Well this introduction about Gentoo is to talk about Sabayon I decided to try it as I have read it is like Gentoo but easier to install, I also wanted to try its OOTB (Out of the box functionality).

Sabayon is an Italian Linux that is user oriented, and it is based on Gentoo.
Ok the first thing you will see when start installing Sabayon is Anaconda, as I am a fan of Fedora, this was great for me, as Anaconda is a great installer.

It asks you all the needed info to start installing the system, its disk partitioning tool as most Fedora users may know is really easy to use, you also have flexibility to install Grub, (I needed it to install it on a Multiple Linux boot schema).

Yet another GTK+ update

GTK+ 3.20 was released a while ago; we’re up to 3.20.3 now. As I tried to explain in earlier posts here and here, this was a pretty active development cycle for GTK+. We landed a lot of of new stuff, and many things have changed. I’m using the neutral term changed here for a reason. How you view changes depends a lot on your perspective. Us, who implemented the changes, are of course convinced that they are great improvements. Others who maintain GTK+ themes or applications may have a different take, since changes often imply that they have to do work to adapt. Read more

Octa-core Cortex-A53 hacker SBC sells for $60

FriendlyARM’s $60, open spec “NanoPC-T3” SBC runs Android or Linux on an octa-core Cortex-A53 SoC packed with wireless and media interfaces, plus 8GB eMMC. The over-caffeinated board builders at Guangzhou, China-based FriendlyARM have shipped their highest-end hacker board yet. The NanoPC-T3 is almost identical to the NanoPC-T2 board, but swaps out the quad-core, Cortex-A9 Samsung S5P4418 SoC for a layout-compatible S5P6818 with eight Cortex-A53 cores that can be clocked dynamically from 400MHz to 1.4GHz. Last month, FriendlyARM’ unveiled an $11, quad-core NanoPi M1 single board computer with similarly open source hardware and Android and Linux software. Read more
