Well I patiently waited for this and it now finally seems to work!

Reboot and there it is.
I’m not a python developer myself at all, but I was just curious about the great codebase that Fabio wrote and documented.
Knowing I have the repository database on my hard disc I figured it should be simple to let it list the last 100 changed packages.
This is how its done:
#!/usr/bin/python # -*- coding: iso-8859-1 -*- from entropy.client.interfaces import Client import time client = Client() repo = client.open_repository("sabayonlinux.org") cur = repo._cursor().execute for row in repo._cursor().execute('SELECT `extrainfo`.`datecreation`,`baseinfo`.`atom` FROM `baseinfo`,`extrainfo` WHERE `baseinfo`.`idpackage` = `extrainfo`.`idpackage` ORDER BY `extrainfo`.`datecreation` DESC LIMIT 100'): my_time = float(row) human_time = time.strftime("%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S +0000", time.localtime(my_time)) print human_time,' ',row client.shutdown()
If you want to know about the table layout, visually, you can use dev-db/sqlitebrowser
The database is located here:
For the record I want to explain how to get 5.2 (as soon its out) can be installed successfully on a macbook 5.2 .
I take it one knows about refit, if not RTFM.
The first thing todo when booting the LiveDVD is edit the boot parameters and append: maxcpus=1 . Otherwise the kernel will panic (acpi issue).
Alternatively you can just disable all acpi but this will not do any good for day2day usage of the macbook.
Ok we start installer and we create 1 partition /dev/sda3 I used ext4, works just fine.
In the installer you need to check a box for advanced grub options and
select to NOT install it in MBR but in /dev/sda3 instead.
Personally I think this step actually is a bit buggy because after a
succesfull installation and syncing partition tables in refit you will
get a message that there is no operating system found if you try to
boot the linux partition. This is because it seems that grub2 actually
didn’t install there at all.
To fix this I booted live again to manually install grub here are the
excact steps todo it:
open a terminal, become root
– mkdir sabayon && mount /dev/sda3 sabayon
– mount -o bind /proc sabayon/proc
– chroot sabayon
– grub2-install /dev/sda3 –force (I guess its this step where it went /dev/null during installation process)
– equo update && equo install grub (this will auto generate the shiny
sabayon grub2 theme and detect the kernels)
Now reboot and there it is. Keep in mind that you still might need to append the maxcpus=1 flag to your line, to perm edit that line you can have a look in /boot/grub/grub.cfg
This version will eventually never make it in the main repositories.
It can have some bugs and crashes. If you want to give it a try just do with limbo attached equo install kde-meta.
Incase you get a masked package remember that you can unmask packages like this:
echo “media-libs/gluon-9999” >> /etc/entropy/packages/package.unmask

You use your Sabayon Desktop to your taste and you kinda always want to install the same thing when you freshly install Sabayon. Taken this idea there are sets you can create yourself or use the provided ones from entropy.
- Make sure you have latest entropy version on branch 4
- equo hop 5
- equo update
- equo upgrade
At this point of writing it feels like the branch is fairly in shape enough. I’ve added KDE 4.3 RC2 from kde-testing overlay to work towards the final KDE 4.3 release.
- Do I realise that I’m about to download 800 – 1000 packages and I have enough free disc space to survive that operation.
- It’s important, since its a binary tree, that you complete equo upgrade (or what we used to call equo world)
- I’m not sure when the migration tools will be implemented but since we jumped to Python 2.6 you need to check eselect python list and see if its set to this.
- You will most likely need to equo install gcc and run gcc-config and set it to the latest gcc version
- You need to run binutils-config to manauly select a profile.
- The lowest kernel is a 2.26.30 you need to check with eselect kernel if its set to it and maybe manualy add the entry in /boot/grub/grub.conf
- Right now there is no new artwork available in branch 5 so it will kinda look the same.
