Product Description

Sabayon is a modern and easy to use Linux distribution based on Gentoo, following an extreme, yet reliable, rolling release model. Sabayon Linux is a live DVD designed to transform a computer into a powerful Gentoo Linux system in less than 5 minutes. Gentoo Linux is a Linux distribution powered by a software install manager engine called "Portage". Besides functioning as a live DVD, Sabayon Linux can also be installed on a hard disk, acting effectively as an easy-to-use Gentoo installation disk.

Sabayon is a modern and easy to use Linux distributionbased on Gentoo, following an extreme, yet reliable, rolling release model.

Fresh software, at all times

Sabayon developers have the funny habit of packaging all the latest stuff that is in the Gentoo repositories and make it available as soon as possible to our users. If you are looking for the latest KDE, GNOME or LibreOffice, the chance that "it's all in the repos already" are very high. We keep rolling 24/7, 365 days a year, because old software get us instantly bored.

Available releases

Choose between the wonderful minimalism of GNOME, the eyecandy of KDE or the old fart called Xfce. If you are the kind of person who just needs Fluxbox/Openbox/whatever else, just get the Minimal image and you won't be hit by the "OMG candies" bloat that is in the other images.

Binary vs Source Package Manager

It's up to you whether turn a newly Sabayon installation into a geeky Gentoo ~arch system or just camp on the lazy side and enjoy the power of our binary, dumbed down Applications Manager (a.k.a. Rigo). With Sabayon you are really in control of your system the way you really want.

Native NVIDIA and AMD GPU drivers support

All our releases natively support the latest and greatest GPU hardware from NVIDIA and AMD through their proprietary drivers. Whether you want to enjoy your Linux rig for gaming or video playback, you can. For AMD hardware though, we default to the Open Source implementation for the supported cards. Make sure to pass "nomodeset" to the boot command line to force the proprietary drivers to be used instead.

LTSI Linux Kernels offered

We are tracking the 3.10, 3.12, 3.14, 3.18 and 4.1 Long Term Stable Linux kernels, offering (almost) same-day updates to them. If you are using Sabayon in a server environment, you surely welcome this. However, if you’re using Sabayon on your laptop, desktop workstation, switching between kernels or just moving to a new version has become a no-brainer operation through Rigo: just go to the preferences menu, select the kernel menu (LTS and regular kernels are listed in separate menus), pick a kernel and click “Install”. Rigo will take care of updating external modules in a reliable and safe way on your behalf.
