#3443 Xorg Segmentation Fault for Kernels 4.x

Posted by mahalay on 08 August 2015 - 10:08 AM

I'm out of ideas how to fix the problem, please my logs, I hope somebody can decode what could possibly be the underlying problem. 


I'm not sure if I missed any kernel config, tried rebuilding glibc because a line tells me it segfaults there. Rebuilt xf86-video-intel and nvidia-drivers - still no luck. Re-emerge x11-drivers/* that I use, xorg-server, etc... still no luck. 

Tried gentoo-sources too, still no luck. Hope someone can help. 

I am stuck with 3.19 (debian-sources), however, I can't make my hdmi and displayports to work. xrandr -q does not report anything related to HDMI and DPs. 

Thanks in advance. 


My Machine: 

Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller 
NVIDIA Corporation GM204M [GeForce GTX 970M] 
Intel® Core™ i7-4710MQ CPU @ 2.50GHz

#3755 FUCK YEAH!

Posted by pr1vacy on 15 October 2015 - 06:38 PM

That's what I yelled as I fist punched the air a minute ago.


I just started with Funtoo 2 days ago after being on Manjaro and mostly Debian Testing.


I wanted to be rid of systemd and rather than fight with it in distros that are ramming it down my throat I decided it was time to switch.


In comes Funtoo.


Used another PC next to my laptop as I installed. Everything went smooth.


Compiling does take a while but it's worth it to be lean and mean. My system is Asus G73JH with 1st gen I7 and I have an Intel SSD.


Was first shocked after opening a fresh firefox install on a cold system and it popped up in ONE second. Never seen that on any OS besides Funtoo.


Next test was to try installing Wine since I love playing Virtual Pool 4.


Install went fine. Ran VP4. Could only see the balls. All backgrounds were gone.


Looked at logs and saw things that led me to S3 Texture compression issues.


Went back and saw S3TC as a build option so rebuilt wine and ran it again....with a good vibe that all would be well.




My new favorite OS. Having a blast learning the nuances of Funtoo. Great job!

#347 Some artwork for Funtoo (Wallpapers)

Posted by j-g- on 03 July 2014 - 01:17 AM

Hello funtooers, I have noticed the lack of Funtoo artwork in general, so I took some time to play around with blender and Inkscape to make some wallpapers(7).


In a search for  a base image, I only encountered a small banner with the Funtoo logo, so I did a re-vectorization, and some slight line chages, and this is the outcome, the wallpapers are mostly minimalistic, Also link to a tar.xz with sources (.blend .svg) and pack png of renders in 1920x1080px, I encourage you to play around with the sources and post your results in this thread.

Here's a prewiew from imgur











PD: I would Also like to ask to the developers if this can go to the wiki? for those, newcomers that will want a funtoo wall for their desktops.

#1307 Systemd

Posted by nrc on 06 November 2014 - 06:06 PM

There are plenty of distros that support systemd.  I believe that it's important that someone is doing the work to make a Linux distro that works without systemd.   The developers are tackling a complicated problem with upstream projects that are not always supportive (one might even say they're hostile) to their goal.   Unless the goal is to attract more users for the sake of having more users it makes no sense to compromise that effort by splitting the userbase and the development effort between installs with and without systemd.

#448 Making Funtoo more Fun...

Posted by drobbins on 15 July 2014 - 10:05 PM

Hi Everyone,

I am going to be making some changes to the project soon, to fulfill the vision of a user-centric community and also make Funtoo more suitable for enterprise systems.
Here is what I have found. If you have a single Funtoo system, then the continual changes that we receive from Gentoo are probably not a big deal. You do a system update daily or maybe once a week, resolve any issues, and your system continues to work well with a little hand-holding.
However, there is a lot of work being done behind the scenes by angry_vincent and myself to keep things working well. Our tree is created in a totally automated way, but we "fix" things that break as various things in Gentoo are updated.
And there is the problem. The automated Gentoo updates are fine for a single system, but if you like me have 5+ Funtoo systems, you do not update your systems regularly and then the various hand-holding, perl-cleaner, revdep-rebuild and blocker resolution is a huge pain.
And there is another problem... Angry_vincent and I probably spend 90%+ of our Funtoo time on fixing things that are broken, which means we have no time left to actually create new awesome technology to make Funtoo better. Like a boot-update rewrite, or a metro rewrite, all things that I want to get to. Yes, I find a way to sneak in time to do various things but it is not very ideal.
So, for any problem there is a solution. I have a vision of a solution that will give us the ability to have more control over quality, without doing a wholesale fork of all of Gentoo. I don't see the point of forking all of Gentoo... without better planning and technology, we will just duplicate the same problem of continuous rolling release, but have it happen on the Funtoo side. Rolling release is a good thing, but it is not suitable for all users of Funtoo or Gentoo... so we need something that will make Funtoo more capable without working against the benefits of rolling release.
Since I am not only a developer, not only BDFL, but also a *user* of Funtoo Linux (and *that* is what I consider myself first and foremost,) I want Funtoo Linux to work for larger scale deployments. And I want developers and *users* to not be continually burdened with unending ebuild updates and break/fix situations.
So, over the next few weeks, I am going to be reaching out to our small team of staff and get them up to speed on regular Funtoo maintenance so that I can focus my 'Funtoo' time on developing this new system. Not a new distro, but a new way that Funtoo will manage updates that will give us much more control and the ability to focus on strategic initiatives much, much more than we have in the past.

#2616 Pre-built kernels!

Posted by drobbins on 12 May 2015 - 04:15 AM

Hi All,


For a long while, the most time-consuming and potentially error-prone part of installing Funtoo Linux has been building a kernel. I worded to make this better by creating the debian-sources kernel, when combined with the "binary" USE flag will build you a kernel that just works. The problem: the compile time is excessive -- it can take an hour or more even on relatively modern hardware.


To make installing Funtoo Linux even easier, stage3's are now including debian-sources pre-built! We're using the Funtoo compute power made available by Funtoo supporters to save you time and hassle when installing Funtoo :) All you need to do is configure a boot loader and you're ready to go :)


I enabled this yesterday on our build servers, so it will take a few days before all stage3's are updated to include debian-sources. If they have a date of 2015-05-11 or later, they should have a kernel and initramfs included.


If you still want to build your own custom kernel, it is easy enough to unmerge, remove kernel and initramfs, and build your own.

#2253 Subarch Profiles

Posted by drobbins on 29 March 2015 - 04:24 AM

Hi All,


If you have installed a new Funtoo Linux system in the last week, you may have noticed something interesting -- /etc/make.conf is EMPTY and eselect profile show shows something new -- a subarch profile:


test / # eselect profile show
Currently set profiles:
    arch: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/arch/x86-64bit
   build: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/build/current
  flavor: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/flavor/core
 subarch: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/arch/x86-64bit/subarch/corei7
What's going on? This is part, or maybe culmination of an ongoing effort to simplify /etc/make.conf. While it is still possible to set CFLAGS in /etc/make.conf, by default, these settings are now defined in a subarch profile. By default, new stage3's will have a subarch profile set, but existing Funtoo systems don't need to have one set. If you'd like to set a subarch profile, you can do so by ensuring you have the latest eselect installed and using the "eselect profile set-subarch" command.
What are the benefits of subarch profiles? Of course, the first big benefit is to keep /etc/make.conf clean. Subarch profiles, along with flavors and mix-ins, are designed to help keep /etc/make.conf tidy and only contain the tweaks you personally need for your system. It also assists with Metro, our stage building tool. Metro no longer has to store all the CFLAGS settings for each subarch -- these are now integrated into the Portage tree, in one place. And also, this allows us to fix and improve subarches over time, and you automatically benefit from any improvements with an emerge --sync.
Hope you enjoy the new system,

#4028 My 2 cents on systemd

Posted by b9AcE on 06 November 2015 - 02:07 PM

It's simple really: systemd is wrong for Linux.

It may be right for something else, but not (default) Linux.

It violates the "UNIX Philosophy", which is best summarized by the famous quote from the inventor of the UNIX-pipe, McIlroy:

This is the Unix philosophy: Write programs that do one thing and do it well. Write programs to work together. Write programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal interface.

This is important for very many reasons.

If one non-critical functions fails, it should not mean that the entire system becomes unusable as it has been on Windows where svchost.exe is used to run almost any arbitrary process and each of those svchost.exe processes can "host" several sub-functionalities. This results in that if any of those sub-functionalities "goes nuts", even if it's one that the user does not care about at all, the entire process with all its hosted sub-functionality is immediately affected. Also made obvious by the svchost.exe example is how it makes granular permissions management impossible even with third party tools like anti-virus and firewalls as if you have even ONE svchost.exe sub-functionality requiring network access to do its job, you must grant network access to the entire process and thus to everything else hosted by the same binary and this can lead to very undesirable security implications.

I use svchost.exe as the example because we Linux- (and UNIX- in general) users used to laugh at Windows' poor design in this regard for these reasons... but now when Windows is moving more and more away from this design, Linux is moving to it.

What's even worse is that there used to be several alternatives to chose from regarding system init provider, but now there are only two main ones and one that is being migrated away from, so if any major flaw is discovered in for example systemd, there is now effectively only ONE choice left.

With software now increasingly being made specifically designed for systemd, they build bi-directional dependencies so that the user can not really choose individual components anymore, which again can cause very bad security results as well as very much waste in system resources.

Imagine for example if there is a bug that causes the boot process to take half an hour each time using systemd and OpenRC can't be used because the core functionality of the system specifically depends on systemd... This can cause very expensive fines for corporations with Service Level Agreements to honor.

The migration to systemd results in user-unfriendly, bloated, unnecessarily restricted and potentially very costly systems.

It could be AN option, but should definitely not become the ONLY option as it is becoming now.

If you want a Windows/Mac-like system where the user is put out of control through the assumption that the programmers will be able to predict every usage scenario and never write flawed code so no options are needed, then it should be considered as an option.


I could go on, but I fear I have already passed the wall-of-text/TL;DR-threshold.

P.S.: The example scenarios in this post are all ones that I have personally encountered, so not at all hypothetical.

Posted by Oleg Vinichenko on 24 April 2015 - 07:57 AM

they are part of base system now. ego is a personality of Funtoo systems. Yes, this is complete replacement for eselect tool. Currently it have only epro module. This one is a replacement of profile management: show, list, setting, removing. It is much faster and nicer than original tool. More docs and news expected.
