Bug Description

So far Dorsal does not work with Sabayon or Gentoo Linux. I created a .platform file which works with Sabayon 5.x and should also work with Gentoo. Please follow the instructions in the platform file. Hope this helps,

Take care.

I have added your file. Thanks again!

Could you also look at guess_platform() and see if you add some code to auto-detect something unique to sabayon/gentoo?

I fixed up the guess_platform() in to identify gentoo and sabayon. Since sabayon does not even have its own name when using lsb_release, I decided to rename the platform file "gentoo_sabayon.platform". Now identifies gentoo and sabayon and starts the right platform file. I added a bit more info in the platform file, so people should understand what is happening.

new and gentoo_sabayon.platform are attached. Please remove the originatl sabayon.platform from the source.
