Exactly the issue I'm having. Try running sabayon through a terminal and
see what it prints out when you try to edit. This is what I get.

I've downloaded the newest version from the website, but I'm having
issues getting it to build. All the dependencies are beyond FC6, and I
really don't want to have to install EL5 right now. I had more issues
getting everything to work in EL5 last time and went back to FC6, that
was July of 07 though. Is there an older version of Sabayon that might
work on FC6 still?
