Sabayon Linux is a Gentoo based distribution that is designed to be easy to install and configure. Savvy Linux users know that Gentoo is a "roll your own" distribution where you create your own distro from scratch--installing and compiling all your programs. They say you learn a lot of Linux by doing a Gentoo install, and that you end up with a very speedy system optimized to your specific needs.
What about those of us who want to try the Gentoo experience without taking several days to get it up and running?
Then Sabayon Linux is for you.

While I’ve been off doing my own thing, the Wine team has been hard at work and they’ve done some amazing things. So I turned to Wine for the first time in years.

Each distribution has some specific tools to build a custom kernel from the sources. This article is about compiling a kernel on CentOS systems. It describes how to build a custom kernel using the latest unmodified kernel sources from www.kernel.org (vanilla kernel) so that you are independent from the kernels supplied by your distribution. It also shows how to patch the kernel sources if you need features that are not in there.
It was started as a movement of long-haired geeks and coders, but today the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) network is now seeing some big corporate names and government institutions backing it with funding and support in various ways.
While perusing the Ubuntu forums for a way to fix my disappeared bootup and shutdown usplash, I found this great new tool for Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy) called StartUp-Manager or SUM.
This tutorial shows how to set up a Ubuntu 6.10 server (Edgy Eft) as a firewall and gateway for small/medium networks. The article covers the installation/configuration of services such as Shorewall, NAT, caching nameserver, DHCP server, VPN server, Webmin, Munin, Apache, Squirrelmail, Postfix, Courier IMAP and POP3, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and many more.
It's been a full four months since we have taken a look at the "sequel" to the RR4 distro, Sabayon. Named after an Italian desert, I am not sure how that relates itself to Linux. Perhaps because it's a tasty distro? There's no denying that this is one of the most robust and fresh looking distros out there, so that may very well be the case.

We're in the homestretch now. The only planned release candidate of openSUSE 10.2 was released a few days ago and final is expected to be released to the public on December 7. From this point on only showstopper and security bugfixes get integrated, so we are able to get a real good idea of 10.2 from this rc. I must say, from what I've seen, this is going to be a great release.
