  2. See my original post (mostly questions that was marked as "trolling") and see the first answer to be more clear of what I mean
  3. Hi, first of all thanks for answer. First of all it is interesting that you go on offense as defense and state that my questions are trolling :) I mean common, did I blame you that manpower of the project is much smaller than gentoo? I do not think in any way that you or anyone here own me anything, all of all I'm trying to understand the state and if I (maybe others who share same feeling) need to worry or re-calculate path if Funtoo is for them. Moreover I am the one who stated the shortage of developers in the first place, but somehow your answer is still that offense that I'
  4. Yesterday
  5. Just a note that KDE Plasma has been updated to 5.22 thanks to a PR from @r0b. Thanks, @r0b!
  6. I try to do a little every day. For example, the new 'next' release, which has been in planning for over a year, is now live and ready for contributions... This will be of interest to @zogg and others who want to be part of updating Funtoo without breaking stuff for 1.4-release users. See:
  7. Oops, I forgot to tell you how to set up next-release. You have two options. One is to use the stage3 to install a new next system. The other option is to convert an existing system to next-release. To convert a system to next-release: Do a world update on your system and specifically ensure you have the latest portage and ego installed. Add "release = next" to the "[global]" section of /etc/ego.conf Run "ego sync" Then run "epro build next". Now you are ready to do another world update to get gcc, binutils and other updates. PLEASE NOTE: When you do t
  8. Hi All, I wanted to let everyone know about "next" release -- which is the new release of Funtoo that is intended to receive regular updates to all the latest packages. Currently, a generic_64 build of next-release is available here: https://build.funtoo.org/next/x86-64bit/generic_64/ 'next' release currently includes gcc-11.2.0 and an updated unified binutils (binutils and binutils-libs have been combined, and binutils-config has been removed.) It also has a small handful of updated packages. Our intention is to gradually add more and more auto-generated ebuilds to 'n
  9. 🙂 Daniel, i have only 2 kids and no free time at all. I want to send a few patches for funtoo network scripts infrastructure duringabout several month, but I stupidly do not have enough time for this :-D. How do you manage all this :-D?
  10. Last week
  11. Thanks cardinal! I understand this and it sounds good. But I will try it tomorrow, ´cause now I am having trouble concentrating. Too Tired.
  12. @fredmyra If the computer doesn't connect to the internet using a cellular data modem disable modemmanager USE flag so it can be removed. In /etc/make.conf add this: USE="-modemmanager" Remove modemmanager: emerge -Ca modemmanager Rebuild packages now that the modemmanager USE has been disabled: emerge -avuDN @world
  13. I'm not on a Funtoo system (long story, don't bother) but IIRC you could do w/o the modemmanager package. emerge -aC modemmanager Note: this might break some packages, consider purging those as well, unless they're system-critical of course!
  14. Yes! I tried to follow the installation guide very carefully. Did the install 3 times because of small mistakes.
  15. Did you install the various firmware packages? (microcode, linux-firmware, etc) You'll probably need to reboot into a chroot environment with the external media method you've used to install Funtoo in the first place.
  16. I insisted and by pressing several keys I was finally able to proceed to log in. But I still would appreciate help on the modem issue. I noticed that during booting it was reported that " scanning for e1000 .... loaded" but I don´t know if it means anything of interest.
  17. Hi ! Newbie here, has just finished my first Funtoo install and got it to boot all the way to login, but it stopped there with the message shown in the screenpic enclosed as "meddelande.png". Below, some hardware info in hope you can tip me on what can be done. lspci: 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor DRAM Controller (rev 09) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09) 00:14.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 7 Series/C210 Series Chipset Family USB xHCI Host Controller (rev 04) 0
  18. @zogg I will answer you. "From recent activity it seems like funtoo development (except autogenerated updates mostly) is getting to mostly none, including activity even in on this forum." This is an interesting and funny perspective, because it's actually just the opposite. Funtoo is more active than it has ever been, and we are starting to collaborate with Sabayon on next-gen projects, and we have been growing our Funtoo dev team too. One thing to realize is that Gentoo has 200+ developers and Funtoo up until recently has had maybe 2-3 developers at most active at a time, but o
  19. Just to let everyone know, MATE stage3's are now available for download, alongside our GNOME and Cinnamon stage3's. Also, we recently merged in a PR from nyacoder which updated Enlightenment to the current upstream version. Enjoy!

  21. As root, run fsck /dev/nvme0n1p1 Make sure you have the correct support package installed for the file system on that partition (probably VFAT)
  22. I just got Funtoo installed today on my desktop computer. I have 2 ssd drives. nvme1n1 259:0 0 465.8G 0 disk <---Windows ├─nvme1n1p1 259:1 0 100M 0 part <--windows boot manager nvme0n1 259:5 0 476.9G 0 disk <---Linux ├─nvme0n1p1 259:6 0 128M 0 part <--boot I was trying to get dual-boot to work so I've modified /etc/grub.d/40_custom as per an article I found.

  23. But you obviously didn't ,except mumbling some generic things and trying to make it to "Funtoo is obviously not for you then" and "you do not understand" arguments with "matter for user" on top as I am not a user already, so I do not matter 🙂 Let's make it easier, so you would not dodge with "I already answered": I mean all your effort fails to point what is actual roadmap, official Roadmap and FAQ are outdated and have information that is not correct for the past 2 years. You fail to point out what is "stable" and if Funtoo is not rolling release, where are release cycles for p
  24. I made a good faith effort to answer your questions. I'm really not interested in arguing about it.
  25. And just before you are giving unrelated generic answer 🙂 From official FAQ:
  26. And I do not see any innovations in Gentoo, I see they backported some ideas from Funtoo and they as well have newer ebuilds APIs. And let's put aside that they have stable mask and you do copy most from there, but still call them unstable. So what Funtoo can provide that Gentoo can't as it is based on Gentoo and should at least have something to say it is something new or better in anyway. Otherwise I see a lot of distros from Ubuntu that change wallpapers and call themselves - most stable and user-friendly (i am aware it is not same case here, but it seems you can't understand what I me
  27. Wait what? I am missing the point? Okay, os you basically saying that creating autogenerated ebuilds and not breaking updates is stable? Kit based when same kits have outdated versions is stable? So year+ old software would never have any vulnerabilities or bugs just because it "aged like wine?", did I get you correctly? Or maybe you also do not include those bugfixes and CVE fixes? How do you decide what updates are matter for user? Stability is not updates that are not breaking, stability is decent versions while the point of distro and it's maintainers to provide the s
  28. IIUC, if you get a power failure, then all new data will be lost, isn't it(or you mount /home from ssd/hdd?)? If your workflow consist of running several programs, then after first run every program should start fast in any case, due to fs blocks cache. Thus, how this speeds are differ(program second start from ssd/hdd and from tmpfs)?
