Sabayon Frozen 13.04 is up
Sabayon Linux 13.04 has just been released, and I've created a new frozen repository.
The config file can be downloaded here, it must be copied in the /etc/entropy/repositories.conf.d folder (if you come from Frozen 10 or 11, just substitute the number with "13.04").
Sabayon Frozen 11 is online
With Sabayon Linux 11 just released, I've created a new frozen repository. It will be hosted on the same server of Sabayon Frozen 10, and with the same service warranties (read: none :D).
The config file can be downloaded here, it must be copied in the /etc/entropy/repositories.conf.d folder (theoretically, writing "11" in place of "10" in the previous config file should work the same).
Obviously, for those which are stuck on Frozen 10 and don't want to move, Sabayon Frozen 10 will continue its existence for a long time. After all, that's what it was made for.
Announcing Sabayon Frozen 10 repository
Sabayon Frozen repository is now a reality.
This repository is basically a snapshot of the status of the Sabayon Official Repository at the release day of a stable version. This means that by pointing to Sabayon Frozen N you will get Sabayon Linux with the packages, the updates, the bugs Sabayon had when Sabayon N was released.
* Frozen systems: if you are happy with the system as it is when installed, and you don't plan to upgrade anything but you still want to be free to install and remove programs, Frozen is the repo you need.
* Release-date upgrades: by switching to the new Sabayon Frozen the day a new Sabayon Linux is released, the user will get a Sabayon which does not upgrade gradually each week, but rather each three / four months.
* Regression-proof system: some bug unfortunately hit the weekly repo and you must fix it immediately because you need to work (who experienced problems with Sabayon and the Radeon HD4xxx series?)? Do a violent roll back to the release day status!
There will be no backports, no patches, and security holes will stay there forever (yay!). The "service" comes with absolutely no warranty of any kind :)
The server is very weak (P4 2.4GHz, 512MB, 10Mbit full duplex, Sabayon ServerBase x86), however I expect very limited traffic because:
1) Most Sabayon users like being rolling
2) Who uses the frozen repo does not need to download updates, just new software
That's why I expect the machine will be more than enough.
I'm not sure how many releases I will be able to keep, but hopefully at least the latest 10-12, which means more or less support for three years or more.
