Hi there! I use sabayon 5 and I have had a problem these days: suddenly, OO3 has become extremely slow in opening and saviing documents of all types!
It ran so fast until 2 days ago and now it's like this! Abiword and Gnumeric work perfectly!
The only things I did in the past days were uninstalling slocate, disabling tracker at gnome boot ans diabling ipv6... Also, but many days ago, before OO3 problem I guess, I added the nodiratime option in my fstab...
Does anyone know what I could do?
Thanks in advance!

Ask the Sabayon team? This is for Gentoo.

Yes you're right, but I asked sabayon team and I got no answer... When it's this way, I also try here, because sabayon is based on gentoo...

I do not quite appreciate this default reply whenever a question is asked about Sabayon (or Funtoo), although it is perfectly okay to say that here :). But importantly, it is not so constructive. Please do remember that if an issue comes up in one linux distro (any nix in general for a generic app), it is very likely to show up in Gentoo as well ;). In fact, several of my desktop related issues were solved by ideas from Ubuntu/Fedora or its forums.

Now back on the issue. The first thing I might do is try backing up and then deleting the .oo3 folder in home (~/.oo3) and starting afresh. But given that you say that you have recently changed fstab options, try reverting them. I use ext3 with options 'defaults, relatime' (like in Ubuntu) for non-root partitions. As such I don't have an fstab entry for root partition (I guess baselayout-2 and openrc take care), and so should be for sabayon 5 which uses cutting edge stuff. As such, the 'mount' command gives the following output:
Code:
/dev/root on / type ext3 (rw,relatime,errors=continue,data=writeback)
However, if you do have a fsab entry for root, the options 'defaults, noatime' for root should do fine. And if I were more desperate, I would try experimenting by creating another user (or backing up and deleting all or most config files in my home folder).

To the OP, did you use anaconda to install with the default LVM partitioning or did you use your own partition scheme? The reason I ask is because if you used the default setup you probably have one large / partition using LVM and a small /boot partition. If so you can't adjust your fstab the same way as you would if you had installed with your own partitioning scheme. Look at the Gentoo "LVM how to" or "LVM2 how to" and that will clue you in to correctly modify your file system. I bet this is your problem.

I hope this helps.

Now on to:

Dude, there's no reason for you to be an a$$!! First of all this is the UNSUPPORTED forum!!! Sabayon for all intents and purposes IS Gentoo. Their distribution is not a fork, it's a binary snapshot of unstable and a very good one at that! Their developers spend a great deal of their time here with us and over there. It makes a great rescue disk or an excellent way to get a running system that can easily be recompiled into a pure Gentoo unstable system that can be used to actually do work immediately! That way it's usable while customizing to ones content using portage and doing so with no downtime. It's not like Funtoo which is a fork!!! Besides as has been mentioned, many come here to get help who use other Distros BECAUSE this forum is active with knowledgeable users.

We want to encourage Linux use not shun people!!! I can't tell you how many times in the past I've found a solution to a problem by Googling and finding the answer on another Distros' forum. Many issues we encounter here are shared by other users. We just usually find out first because those of us running unstable are more at the "cutting-edge" than most conservative Distros. Before you get rude with a poster here remember, Linux isn't some exclusive club! We are trying to bring OSS to the masses and as more new users discover it, we have an obligation to be respectful and courteous. Everyone we convert to Linux is potentially someone who can help us down the road!!!

I've been running Gentoo for 5 years when I irretrievably hosed my system a couple of months ago. I couldn't afford to be down for a few days while I rebuilt my system from scratch. So when I found out about Sabayon I thought I'd give it a try and it's worked out awesomely for me. I only was down for a few hours and now I'm running unstable compiled to my tastes without missing a beat. So I'm thankful to the hard working folks over there that take the time to put that distro together. As a matter of fact, I've been posting, helping out over there in order to show them my gratitude.

OK, rant over!!

Ciao
