Sabayon Linux Deal Breaker?

Install a System. It worked great in a Virtual Box window. Time to install it on a real system, not a virtual one. I downloaded the ISO file from the Sabayon Linux Website. Burned the ISO file to a DVD and installed, since my older system requires I install from DVD.

Follow the Wiki: I followed the steps which took a whole day to upgrade the system in the Sabayon New Install Wiki. That just took forever. In any case I wound up with a fresh install of Sabayon Linux, based on Gentoo, running on my computer.

Printer Can’t Be Found: Well, obviously if I can’t set up the printer with at least CUPS if not the HP Printer utility that would be a deal breaker. One must be able to print out stuff on the printer, right?

Still looking into it. Not happy that it’s not as “out of the box” as it seemed in a virtual box, especially after investing two days in the install, update process. Not many people would be impressed, although when you have a working, updated system they say stuff like “Your system is up to date! Cool!”
