  1. Yesterday
  2. Ugh. Google is so bad. For anyone looking for a chromium based browser with independent sync and strong privacy features, I recommend vivaldi. #emerge www-client/vivaldi
  3. Last week
  4. This could be useful for you? https://mtlynch.io/tinypilot/#how-to-build-your-own-tinypilot HTH!
  5. On linux-debian-sources-5.10.28_p1 I get this error also, but it comes before initramfs. Output says: ... Hint: Use parameter scandelay... Determining boot device... Detected real_root=/dev/sda3 Mounting /dev/sda3 as root... Using mount -t ext4 -o ro sh: bad number Booting (initramfs).. INIT: version 2.95 booting etc.
  6. Thanks! MOAR to come soon once I'm done tinkering with my new dual EPYC 7551 rig. Quick testing shows it can run all cores @ 3GHz under 1V, but the noise and heat... I need a water loop for that, radiators blowing hot air straight out of the window. I don't want to have my AC running against ~600W of heat, ruins my XMR mining efficiency. Now I've put that thing two doors away. Video via DisplayPort over fiber (helluva expensive). Keyboard/mouse over LAN through abusing Synergy on my Notebook (Server) and EPYC rig (client). Next step is using multiple RAID0ed containers each in it's o
  7. Funtoo devs have been very hard at work updating many packages. One of the more notable ones is a new update that brings www-client/chromium to version 91.0.4472.77. Chromium users please be advised that Google Sync is no longer supported. This is not a decision made by Funtoo. Google has decided to remove the ability to sync with Chromium browsers. If you would like to learn more about this you can read here: https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2021/01/chromium-sync-google-api-removed Also more information can be found here: https://www.zdnet.com/article/linux-distribu

  9. https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-8443 media-tv/plex-media-server- fails to update
  10. Ever since version 1.23.*.*, I haven't been able to update. Error comes up as "ERROR: media-tv/plex-media-server- failed (install phase): * (no error message)" Attached are the emerge info and pqv as well as the build log. plex-media-server.emerge.pqv plex-media-server.emerge.info emerge.build.log

    Thanks. Problem was that that it was failing to extract the tarball. Not clear why. Manually extracting the tarball allowed everything to start normally.
  12. It looks like /usr/src/linux/config-extract sets CONFIG_FUSION_FC=m so I guess I just needed to run that again. I'm not sure why I couldn't find that setting when I ran `make menuconfig`, even within the resulting config file. I definitely could have simply missed it. I'm running genkernel with the config now, so we'll see if it works.
  13. Thanks for the suggestion! I have and use mdadm, but that doesn't help to facilitate communication between the HBA and the JBOD, nor does it help to make the kernel aware of any block devices from the JBOD. The mptfc driver is what I needed. I still need a long-term solution for getting this module into my initramfs in this and future kernels using genkernel.
  14. Huh. I wonder why? I managed to get the module to compile (along with all the other modules), and install, just so I could test it. The module worked well. `make menuconfig` did not show an option for mptfc, as far as I could tell. Maybe I missed something.
  15. @asewill I'm running an older version of debian-sources-lts. No modification of the kernel configuration. Genkernel builds the initramfs so it includes mptfc and autoloads it on boot. rj@funtoo ~ $ modinfo mptfc filename: /lib/modules/4.19.152_p1-debian-sources-lts/kernel/drivers/message/fusion/mptfc.ko version: 3.04.20 license: GPL description: Fusion MPT FC Host driver author: LSI Corporation srcversion: 2043697964B5896B7AB7B54 alias: pci:v00001657d00000646sv*sd*bc*sc*i* alias: pci:v00001000d00000646sv*sd*bc*sc*i* alias:
  16. You may get satisfactory results when you emerge the mdadm package. JBOD is a "special" sort of RAID.
  17. I'm very new to fiber channel and storage arrays. While trying to set up an old JBOD (4G fiber channel SFP) and the HBA mentioned in the title of this post, I have been unable to figure it out on my own thus far. I'm using funtoo, with the cinnamon stage tarball as a base and debian-sources for my kernel source. The card shows up in lspci output, but the expected driver (mptfc, at least according to https://wiki.debian.org/DeviceDatabase/PCI) doesn't load, and doesn't even seem to be present on my system. Nothing in dmesg. I found mpt3sas, but that module doesn't seem to help. Is there someone
  18. AMD64 and x86 and stage updates twhich fixes a binutils issue that was occuring after an binutils update recently. These new stages also include the debian-sources-5.10.40_p1 kernel. ARM stages are still being worked on and will be up as soon as they are ready.

  19. As a non-coder I reckon gcc, make, libc, binutils and of course the kernel, most likely in that order. Plus any dependencies, obviously.
  20. I see that crossdev is no longer supported. I did try different ideas shown on misc funtoo sites but nothing works. There is no apparent problem for RPI. I was able to create a stage4 from scratch on gentoo and got it booting and working nicely on the Beagle V Beta. I can understand that fchroot is the best approach to compile packages for a slow target but it is completely useless if you do not have anything to chroot on. What is the alternative for the creation of a stage3 and 4 when there is nothing available for a particular processor? Is it possible to crea
  21. First release online: https://github.com/TheDevilsMom/rootfsramdisk/releases/tag/v0.0.1 Now I'm focusing on getting metatools, etc. running and create an ebuild.
  22. I've made a rudimentary script to start/stop everything (called rfsrd, root filesystem RAM disk), seems to work without issues: #!/bin/bash # configuration begins # tmpfs size in MiB size=24576 # MD device md=/dev/md127 # SSD/HDD device ssdhdd=/dev/nvme0n1p2 # loop device loopdevice=/dev/loop0 # configuration ends i=0 while [ $i -lt 1 ]; do case $1 in --help) echo Usage: rfsrd --start echo " Rebuilds RAMdisk and halts SSD/HDD." echo " rfsrd --stop" echo " Rebuilds SSD/HDD and halts RAMdisk." let i=i+1 ;; --start) echo Rebuilding RAMdisk. mount -t tmp
  23. / in RAM ---preliminary guide--- Caution! Entering this is probably Gentoo-is-for-ricers territory! 😉 Battery backed system (notebook, UPS) strongly recommended! This has been executed on a Thinkpad T480s, 40 GB RAM, NVMe SSD, BIOS boot. Section 1: Initial setup. Boot Funtoo Undead USB or any other suitable Linux distro. Create tmpfs mount point. mkdir /mnt/tmpfs Mount tmpfs. Adjust size to your needs. 12 GiB is probably the absolute minimum for a usable desktop configuration.

  24. Your steam installation in Flatpak should have a bin_steam.sh in /../com.valvesoftware.Steam/current/active/files/lib/steam. Also a bootstrap.....tar.xz file. The script unpacks the bootstrap file in a .local/share/Steam directory. The bin_steam.sh script tells you where it installs around line 95: function install_bootstrap() { STEAMDIR="$1" # Save the umask and set strong permissions omask="$(umask)" umask 0077 echo $"Setting up Steam content in $STEAMDIR" Towards the end of the script there is the function check
  25. Even after reading this, I still wonder why gentoo chose such a weird way of solving this problem :-D.
  26. Hi. Your installed OS from stage3-2021-04-21 and want to update OS, right?
