Re: [PLUG] sshd on sabayon

Hash: SHA1

It's been a few weeks - how do you like Sabayon?
Anything to recommend or condemn it for?

It is taking some getting used to coming from the debian/ubuntu world, but I like it.  Everything worked out of the box besides sshd.  I am not going to fault sabayon for this, I am glad it comes locked down by default.  Another day when I am less concerned about getting my files back I will set up a firewall again.

I'm copying my tarball backup over right now.  It's nice to know that saybayon comes locked down, but I need to be able to ssh to make backups.  I typically use sshfs to mount my laptop filesystem on my desktop when I want to make/restore a backup.

You also can just turn it on or off and set whether it runs at boot - most likely it is just a service (so use rc-update to manipulate the runlevels).
