Sabayon – Woes and Whoas of Upgrades

Filed under
Linux

Seems to be some woes and whoas running rampant in the community. Lets take a look and see what some of the popular ones are. Most of the issues are after a fresh install and than doing the upgrades via the package manager to get your system current with the repositories.

Missing icons: Upon reboot, all your icons are missing, seeing X’s instead of an image. This one creeps up from time to time and doesn’t seem to be effecting those that have been rolling along with updates.

This theme is compatible with Gnome 3.20 and up versions.
