Sabayon Linux (previously RR4 Linux and RR64 Linux) – a Linux distribution developed by Fabio Erculiani, based on and fully compatible with Gentoo Linux. It uses the Entropy package management system that was specially developed for this distribution and Portage.
Entropy installs prepackaged packages which shortens the installation process compared to Portage. You can use Entropy with console or graphic user interface Equo or Ringo.
Sabayon supports x86 and amd64 architectures and is a rolling release distro, which means that you don’t have to install it from scratch after a new version is released. There are ready to go Live CDs/DVDs with GNOME, KDE, XFCE, MATE environments, a minimalist version with Fluxbox, which lets you customize the system according to your needs; and a version of SpinBase without a graphical environment.
To install the system on a hard drive, Sabayon uses the Anakonda installer known from Red Hat and Fedora.
Starting with version 16.06, Sabayon is also available for ARM machines (RaspberryPi).
The last version of Sabayon Linux are available for x86_64 machines only.
In November 2020, Sabayon has been rebranded to MocaccionoOS and merged the project with Funtoo Linux.
