Sabayon 13.04 compatible with Secure Boot

by Rob Zwetsloot

Sabayon 13.04 starts a monthly release cycle of the Gentoo-based distro, and now fully supports UEFI Secure Boot

The Sabayon distro has been coming along in leaps and bounds over the last year, and we quite liked Sabayon 11 as well. So in a sly nod to the other big distro that just released, the new Sabayon has been called 13.04, and seems to be the first entry in a monthly release schedule.

The new Sabayon has the usual updates – it now runs on Linux Kernel 3.8.8, has LibreOffice 4.0 and newer versions of the desktop environments. Some of the more interesting updates come from the experimental systemd support, and what they’re calling production ready UEFI and Secure Boot support. While Sabayon 11 had some support for this included, it was not considered ready until now.

You can grab the ISO for the new Sabayon from the download sources.
