Moved from Other Things Gentoo to Unsupported Software.

Sabayon is not gentoo. Its a binary distro, based on Gentoo but changed in all sorts of ways so that things that work on Gentoo don't work on Sabayon.
Unsupported Software does not mean that you will not get support here. Its a warning to Gentoo users that any solutions they find here may not work on Gentoo.

After all that, Welcome to the Gentoo forums.

discord is an evil binary. On Gentoo its installed with
Code:
emerge net-im/discord-bin

That may or may not work on Sabayon.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply and didn't knew the differences between sabrayon and gentoo.
I gave the mentioned code a try at the terminal but says superuser access is required. Let me know what i can do.

Thanks and regards

emerge needs root privilege to make changes to the system. This is normal. If you want to proceed, give it those privileges.

Note that Sabayon has its dedicated forum, and apparently, a different package manager, Entropy.

The user has already ask this question to Sabayon forum
(and other things/issues)

He moved from Ubutnu to Sabayon ,. I think he knows how to access to super-user running "sudo" or "su" to obtain root privileges. :roll: :wink:

@GDH-Gentoo
Entropy is the official package manager for Sabayon.
Portage is supported for advanced users but is not officially supported by the community/devs

Well Discord is in their official repository

https://packages.sabayon.org/show/discord-bin,251752,sabayonlinux.org,amd64,5,standard

What I don't get is why the OP cross-posted on the same day: official forum and a remote cousin forum. Looking at the post datetimes, they were posted at the same time ... its not like they posted on Sabayon and got no response for like a week or two ( the correct response in under 90min )
