Adventures with Sabayon Linux

Filed under
Linux

Despite having issues using Sabayon Linux on a USB stick with persistent storage (unable to install packages), I was so impressed by its speed that I decided to go ahead and install it. Surprisingly I have found that most of the software I use is already included, including Gnome Tweak Tool. So far I have just had to make a few adjustments:

* Banshee for my music player
* SMPlayer for my movie player
* Gnome Shell extensions
* Parcellite clipboard manager since the GPaste extension is not readily available (more on this later)
* Htop process manager

I have a few problems going on right now in Sabayon.
