Description of problem:
Install - look for command to run, menu entry to click, man page to read, howto
to read, --help to read, anything! (Found sabayon-apply under /usr/sbin, but
that's all...)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@morgansmachine ~]# rpm -q sabayon

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install sabayon
2. Look for something to run
3. Find nothing
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
Nothing, even under /usr/share/doc/sabayon-2.12.3, seems to provide any useful
use information.  It's installed, so now what?!

I just installed the (admittedly newer) sabayon package from f7, and running 
sabayon on the commandline works just fine, asks for the root password.
It also shows up in the menus as "User Profile Editor" under "System Tools"

Comment 3 morgan read 2007-06-21 09:47:40 UTC
Well, it might run on f7 - but, it don't on fc5.  And of course, I want it so I
can move to f7 without a month of wasted time fiddling around to get back to
where I was with fc5 - please don't give a catch22 with this.  Fc5's still got a
week or so, there's still time to avoid making the upgrade more painful than it
needs to be.  Sorry for the rant, but this is very irritating.

Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2007-06-21 13:17:34 UTC
older versions of fc packaged sabayon differently, sabayon just contains
"sabayon-apply" and another (forgot the name, sabayon-something) has the actual ui.

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2007-06-21 13:45:26 UTC
From reading the changelog, you probably need the sabayon-admin package

Comment 6 morgan read 2007-06-22 01:43:59 UTC
Thank you soooo much Matthias - from the menu/launcher item, cmd is "sabayon"

Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2007-06-25 23:40:19 UTC
Ok, assuming this is working then.

Comment 8 morgan read 2007-06-26 10:33:47 UTC
Sorry folks, I suspected this might get closed like this.

But, I don't think this work around does mean sabayon is "working".  If I read
the guff, I reasonable understand sabayon to do what in fact sabayon-admin does.
 Why do I have to install a package that isn't sabayon to get sabayon?  It's

I suggest renaming rpm sabayon-admin to sabayon and renaming rpm sabayon to
sabayon-user with sabayon-user a dependency of sabayon (in necessary).  That
way, when one installs sabayon, low-and-behold, they install sabayon.

(Perhaps given Comment #4 this is now all redundant, perhaps not?)

Comment 9 Matthias Clasen 2007-06-27 03:48:55 UTC
Ain't gonna happen in FC5, which has three more days to live. 
And it is fixed in newer releases, as has already been pointed out.
