Question on Sabayon installation
« on: July 20, 2008, 12:44:16 PM »
Of late, I hear, Sabayon has been performing very good...

I run a multi-boot system with Win xp, Ubuntu, 2 Kubuntu's and Sidux and openSUSE 11.0

Now if I install Sabayon, will it write all these OS records to its boot record ? Someone on the IRC chat on Sabayon said it wouldn't.. what do you people say ??

I await ur thoughtful reply - it's not urgent, however. Sabayon is still just downloading on my sys.

Hello Akash..

Well, I was away for a while.. about Sabayon dual / triple /quad boot .. lolz.. Go ahead and install and if uses grub as main boot loader then everything will be normal. And I guess every Linux OS now uses GRUB and grub can detect other OS fairly.

Just make sure you do not mess with partition, rest all other problem can be solved easily (if arrives any).

It spotted all of my distos with no apparent problems, and none of the other I have installed are gentoo based either.

I have to disagree about all linux distos using grub. Some still use lilo, and I find that they do not pick up other distros generally speaking.
