Sabayon 7 Core

Directly from our Server dept., four new Sabayon 7 releases have seen the light!
These releases all go under the "Core" umbrella: they are not meant for beginners, hence the name.

  • SpinBase is a very minimal environment that can be used for many different purposes: didactical, home server deployment, but even for custom Sabayon ISO images creation, using our tool called Molecule). Any Sabayon release we make is based on SpinBase.
  • CoreCDX instead, is geared towards very minimal graphical environment setup, no fancy tools, browsers, whatever, just Fluxbox and command-line. You set the rule.
  • ServerBase is very similar to SpinBase, but powered by a server-optimized Linux kernel (package: sys-kernel/linux-server)
  • OpenVZ is our official OpenVZ template.


All of them have a smaller footprint making them fit into a single CD, or USB memory sticks.
SpinBase and ServerBase are provided with a very minimal Anaconda Installer and CoreCDX should be preferred for non-standard filesystem/partition layouts.

  • Representing the Sabayon Base System from where all the Sabayon releases are built on
  • Bootable Image suitable for a CD or USB thumb drive
  • Shipped with Linux Kernel 3.0
  • ext4 filesystem as default, btrfs, encrypted filesystem support
  • Installable in less than 5 minutes
  • Completely customizable system after install, thanks to Entropy package sets it's possible to install GNOME, KDE, XFCE, E17 or anything else in no time.
  • Entropy and Portage ready (giving access to thousands of installable packages)
  • Providing extra Server-optimized, OpenVZ-enabled, Vserver-enabled kernels in repositories
  • This is part of the Sabayon 7 release series, see this Press Release as well
