  2. So basically if you want encryption, you HAVE TO use LVM as well?

    • NO, you do not have to. LVM is just the default. If you want to use encryption without LVM, you’ll have to manually partition the the hard drive(s). The real question is, why would anyone not want to use LVM?

  4. “Basically, what the Sabayon team did is dump the old Sabayon installation program in favor of the Fedora 13 installer, the Anaconda.”

    The “old Sabayon installation program” was also Anaconda: just an older version of it.
