  3. Looking at the updates in Jira, it looks like things are moving along. My latest update pulled in nvidia-cuda-toolkit and some other nvidia related packages that are required to make nvidia-docker work. nvidia-docker is in the tree. I'm not sure if we're waiting on much more than testing and documentation.

    feedback (for devs)

    I recall watching a talk about open source and the presenter used the phrase "bus factor equals one". I had similar situation at previous workplace. We kept asking "What happens if you get hit by bus?". After there were two deaths (1 unexplained and another a heart attack) of co-workers and a near-fatal heart attack all in the company in the span of about a year, our group switched it up to "What happens if you win the lottery?". The point? We have lots of really cool tools and piles of knowledge - is this knowledge spread around enough for others to keep going should @drobbins suddenly find he won a power ball lottery and is moving to a tropical island w/o computers? I just look at the FreeBSD ports collection or Gentoo repositories. All those indications of "unmaintained"... That should scare some people.

    I have that feeling that maybe Funtoo needs more devs.
  6. I was trying not say anything about Steam support. I know you guys are working on it. I ran out of will power though. Egosoft has released the X4: Foundations beta for Linux and so I am dual booting between Funtoo and Xubuntu just to play it. If you need some testing I am willing, I just need instructions for what to do.

    The command groups <user> reports double entries

    No, you're not. But we both learned something today... 😉

    The command groups <user> reports double entries

    DOH! I'm an idiot. Interesting I never paid much attention to that behavior until now. And I thought I was Linux savvy. Not that desktop usage necessitates using it that often. I still wonder why I've never given it much attention until now. I wonder if that has always been the default behavior? Yeah, I'm grasping for straws here. This is embarrassing. <nikki> makes mental note to stop skimming over man pages and actually read them. Thanks for the quick and friendly answer.

    The command groups <user> reports double entries

    Hun...same here. I didn't notice that until I read through your post. I just double check my group file vs what is in the stage3 tarball used for install. They are both approximately the same (local has my user info added). Quick googlefu came up with this - https://www.systutorials.com/docs/linux/man/8-grpck/ I need to read more about the `groups` command for myself. You're not alone... ~Edit~ From man page (man groups): So just `groups` (at root prompt) will produce the first part of the list - or groups for current user. Using `groups root` prints that list as well as the duplicates. Try the same command as a normal user. You'll see similar duplication.
  11. Fresh install using latest stage3-amd64-piledriver-1.3 . the problem is this: nikki@nikkisys ~ $ groups root root bin daemon sys adm disk wheel floppy tape video root bin daemon sys adm disk wheel floppy tape video |--------------------------------------------------| |--------------------WTF?--------------------------| The same exact behavior can be observed with any valid user on the system. I have not noticed any adverse side effects from this, but the fact it is happening is beyond annoying, it's driving me a little crazy. The /etc/group and /etc/group- files appear to be normal. Running grpck -r and pwck -r does not reveal any abnormalities (and returns 0 back to the shell). What gives? @world and @system is up to date. Apologies if not giving enough info, just not sure what info is needed. Anyone? Thanks in advance.

    USE flags? Why so necessary?

    Solved!!! Thanks to Lazlo.vii! It all worked great

    USE flags? Why so necessary?

    Dispatch-conf is like a kinder, gentler etc-update.

    USE flags? Why so necessary?

    Wow! Complete answer!! I commented out my USE flags in make.conf; didn't help. I'll write down your suggestions, try them, and report. Thanks a million! One more question: I'm not familiar with "dispatch-conf". Got a short explanation? Or can you point me to one, long or short?

    USE flags? Why so necessary?

    When I did a fresh Funtoo 1.3 install on my desktop PC I just set my profile with epro and installed the KDE meta package and it worked (nearly) flawlessly. I did something like this: #epro flavor desktop # epro mix-ins kde-plasma-5-new # epro mix-ins no-systemd # epro mix-ins gfxcard-nvidia # emerge -vauND --with-bdeps=y @world # (say yes to any USE flag changes) # dispatch-conf # emerge -vauND --with-bdeps=y @world #emerge -va xorg-server nvidia-drivers nvidia-settings # emerge -va plasma-meta # (say yes to any USE flag changes) # dispatch-conf # emerge -va plasma-meta I have zero USE flags set in my make.conf and in package.use I only have what portage added.

    USE flags? Why so necessary?

    Disclaimer: I used Gentoo back when it was still v.1.0 and drobbins still administered it. Used it for some years. (Sort of the perpetual newb!) Came over to Funtoo "just 'cuz" and built a nice, usable install with kde. Enjoyed it for a couple of years, then noticed that an upgrade was available. I upgraded, but the internet connection was borked following the upgrade; I figured the easiest (well, maybe not the easiest!) job would be to do a complete reinstall. So I did. Everything has gone well EXCEPT for the re-install of KDE. The USE flags are killing me! I cannot find an acceptable combo that satisfies Portage/emerge to let me install the set. I know that KDE developers work to make ALL their apps play nice with one another, so why are there so many conflicts that, supposedly, require specific USE flags to install properly? It's not like the use of USE flags is universal among Linux distros! So far as I know, Gentoo and Funtoo are unique among distros in using them, yet KDE doesn't build their apps predicated upon the incorporation of USE flags to complicate the issue! Are the specific USE flag requirements for a package set by Gentoo/Funtoo developers? Any workarounds?

    touchpad not working on Dell 7490 laptop

    Hi digifuzzy, Good call - I think you are most certainly right, I checked and I do not have x11-drivers/xf86-input-synaptics installed, nor the use flags with synaptics (which probably pulls that in). I'm building now and will report back :). Thanks, Walter

    touchpad not working on Dell 7490 laptop

    First thing that jumped to mind was the phrase "Xorg synaptics". I recall, when I had a laptop ages ago, that not having synaptic driver in xorg can cause havoc. A quick google brought this up - https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Synaptics There is the later/newer libinput - https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Libinput I'm not sure if these will solve your problems, but identify the need for the driver(correctly we hope) in /etc/portage/make.conf may pull in what you are missing. YMMV - https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1075806-start-0.html
  19. Hi all, I am having difficulty getting the touchpad working on my laptop - if I boot up to Ubuntu, it works fine. I played around with removing modules to semi isolate which modules I need and have deduced that I need at least: i2c_hid hid_multitouch When I remove those on Ubuntu, the touchpad stops working. However, merely having those built and available on my funtoo installation is insufficient. I also tried copying the xorg.conf.d/*.conf files for anything resembling input devices and that also did not work (after restarting X11). I will play around more with other kernel modules. I am trying to dig through lspci to see if I'm missing something but it isn't entirely clear to me, perhaps this might be what I need support: Communication Controller: Intel Corporation Point-LP CSME HECI #1 SMBus: Intel Corporation Sunrise Point-LP SMBus (rev 21) Thanks, Walter

    feedback (for devs)

    You're not alone in this department. There's a direction...just not sure exactly to what destination.
  21. So I had to update my desktop system from version 1.2 to 1.3 and I've chosen to do the fresh install from the stage3 (stage3-core2_64-1.3-release-std-2019-02-05). But.. During the process I've noticed some (at least for me) ugly things that I would like to inform developers about: TL;DR: metalog is NOT added to any runlevel by default. I think it should be added to default/boot runlevel by default sshd IS added to the default runlevel by default. I think it's bad - this should be disabled by default ... if you want to read further please be advised that I'll be grumpy from now on: I've noticed that version 1.3 is out because there were no updates for a while yep it was announced but I'm not checking neither funtoo.org nor forums.funtoo.org on a regular basis - what happened with good old eselect news? I can not find any information when the support for 1.2 version ends - LTS schedule could help with planning the upgrade ... (please consider sth like this: https://nodejs.org/en/about/releases/) and yeah performing a fresh install is time consuming, at least for a desktop machine - so it would be cool to be aware early that end of support for 1.2 is coming and that it's recommended to do a fresh install I think that funtoo.org web page should be rearranged. Here is what I mean: there are a lot of useful articles there but often they are hidden and I can find them only via google there should be a section where you can see all of the articles examples: https://www.funtoo.org/Security https://www.funtoo.org/Installing_a_Logger forums.funtoo.org I was not able to write this post using vanilla firefox-bin-65.0 (w/o any addons) I had to do it by using google-chrome ... wow you've came that far now I'll be sentimental: Gentoo was my first distro back in early 2000s When Daniel started Funtoo, for me it was something cool, something fresh I have a feeling that now the Funtoo Project is going in some weird direction (from end user perspective) that is different to what I was used to back in the days. People on the #funtoo IRC channel used to be more responsive I wrote this post in a good faith. I like funtoo but I'm close to the point where I will switch to other distro ... TBH it strongly depends how long and how smooth will be the process of building rest of desktop environment. Ofc everyone has his own point of view but I really wanted to give you some feedback. If I somehow missed something and somebody disagrees - I look forward to know your point of view.
  22. Earlier
  23. thanks for the tips. The last 5.x sysresc image is not too stale yet, but It is good to find a replacement now. I also found pentoo because I needed to steal a couple ebuilds from their overlay. Although it is a catalyst/gentoo based system I saw a symlink in the profiles list that was designed to point to either a *.gentoo or *.funtoo file, didn't investigate further.

    Dealing with multilib removal

    Since adding the 'X' use flag to wine-vanilla/wine-staging (not currently mentioned in guide), I can actually launch a program now. However, I could not use a copy of the existing wine prefix, as it complained that it "is not a 64-bit installation, it cannot be used with a 32-bit wineserver." I'd have to rebuild the prefix from scratch, not knowing all the tweaks I made to get it where it is. With work, I could probably copy the things needed to bring it into shape. But, it doesn't have access to any of the files from either my home folder nor NFS mounts. I'd have to bind remount a number of things - I actually gave up remounting /home due to some issues I ran into, and concerns about sharing files between them, especially given 64-bit vs. 32-bit. For one of my applications, I will currently load an optical disk using KDE's mounting mechanisms to '/run/media/$user/...' then have the Windows app read the disk. I'm not seeing how to do that without a lot of hand-holding. Also haven't figured out to launch an application without the whole tedious su/xhost/chroot/su sequence. I also just realized that in one app, foobar2000, I use a number of features that allow me to do things like launch Konsole or Dolphin to the folder containing the music file; as-is, I could only get this to launch one of those apps within the chroot - but I would want to be using the "native" apps, not install KDE into the chroot. In other words, so far, this looks to be a very poor substitute for multi-lib, at least where running wine is concerned, and where the goal is not to puts the apps in a chroot jail.

    Multiple NIC Configuration Help

    100% loss is bad. Means card isn't talking. w/ ifconfig also ensure you don't see 169.x.x.x address. That's a "not connected" type address that NICs will assume if something isn't right. arp is good. Shows all external IP connections. Should see meaningful results.
