    Funtoo 1.3 - Kit Snapshots

    Good questions. I would also like to know more about this.

    Funtoo 1.3 - Kit Snapshots

    It's quiet.... Too quiet. There was some comment about this in Jira as well: https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-6219 I think it will be a good thing as long as the schedule can remain at least quarterly and upgrades are reasonably painless. I'm thinking/hoping that 1.2/1.3 were the exceptions because they represented some substantial changes in the underpinnings. Rolling releases are a mixed blessing. We're all trained to pull the lever to get the next food pellet. Most of the time it's nothing useful and sometimes it creates a lot of pain by breaking things. If we can keep things fresh and avoid the breakage while freeing up the development team to create more cool Funtoo stuff then I think it will be a win.

    Funtoo 1.3 - Kit Snapshots

    In the release notes for Funtoo 1.3 there is the part about Kit Snapshots: Is this why my 1.3 system hasn't seen much in the way of portage updates when I `ego sync`? Does this mean that Funtoo will be less of a rolling release system and only likely to see the 4+ larger yearly updates, as mentioned elsewhere in the release notes? I have a few minor reservations about this: As a long time Gentoo and now Funtoo user I have come to understand that keeping the system updated is easier in little regular updates rather than trying to update a many months old system. Will this problem rear its head when Funtoo pushes an update? So far the 1.2 and 1.3 updates have been less than trivial processes to get through. Will this process get simpler/be automated? Obviously these are small potatoes to that of the considerations put into producing an entire linux distro but I have come to expect a certain way of doing things with Funtoo and like most people I fear/hate change even when it is likely for the best.

    Dealing with multilib removal

    Tarballs of what? If You mean funtoo stage3 tarballs, just use a 1.3 tarball for the chroot. It's not like the chroot has to match the base OS in version or anything.

    Dealing with multilib removal

    I have a few important apps that I run in wine (not Steam or games). Before I go all in with the 1.3 upgrade, I wanted to try creating a 32-bit chroot in 1.2 to make sure I could get wine and apps working. The problem is, I don't see any 32-bit tarballs available for 1.2 - only 64-bit. How else might one go about this?

    Multiple NIC Configuration Help

    I have a managed switch that has the network attached along with the network. The network was going outbound but not incoming. The server on the network was an independent server and working fine going outbound until I added the second NIC to the network so I could use my backup server to use from the internal network. I am editing it to remove. Thanks for catching that! Tony

    Multiple NIC Configuration Help

    I am not an expert on networks but why are your nameservers for eth1 pointing to a different network? Any special reason or is that just a typo?

    Multiple NIC Configuration Help

    Hello all, I am sorry for the double post. I posted this question 11 months ago in the Server Help forum and it was never replied to and I think only one person looked at it. I have a server running Funtoo with two NICS. I want to be able to connect to my Dell MD3600i backup server. This is the IP Info: Internal eth0---> IP: ---> Gateway: (Cisco Router to internet) External eth1---> IP: ---> Gateway: (Cisco Managed Switch) Dell MD3600i Backup Server---> I want to be able to connect to my Dell MD3600i backup server at address Can anyone give me some pointers for setting up routing so I can reach Thanks, Tony netif.eth0 template="interface" ipaddr="" gateway="" nameservers="" domain="xxxxxx.com" netif.eth1 template="interface" ipaddr="" domain="xxxxx.com" netstat # netstat -rn Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface UG 0 0 0 eth0 U 0 0 0 lo U 0 0 0 eth1 U 0 0 0 eth0

    "dev-lang/rust:stable" has unmet requirements

    I had the same problem and I fixed this problems with the variable LLVM_TARGETS inside make.conf LLVM_TARGETS="x86"

    "dev-lang/rust:stable" has unmet requirements

    What flags did you add? The above message shows that you are still missing a value for the LLVM_TARGETS. I've just tested it on an funtoo 1.2 image and rust emerges without problem.

    Adding a few modules to initramfs

    I want to ask a few questions before I take action. I think it's better than asking questions after I have broken my system. 😉 In /etc/genkernel.conf we can add all of the kernel modules to the initramfs by un-commenting the following line: # =========MISC INITRD CONFIGURATION============ # # Copy all kernel modules to the ramdisk #ALLRAMDISKMODULES="1" This seems like it's all or nothing. I just want to add the proprietary Nvidia drivers and the ath9k drivers for my usb WNIC in this case but it could be handy for quite a few other things as well. In Gentoo groups of pre-defined modules can be loaded from /usr/share/genkernel/defaults/modules_load and this file does exist in Funtoo but the related section is missing from /etc/genkernel.conf. Is it safe to enable this in Funtoo? If so I could easily add custom modules from there. If it isn't safe is there a better way to do this?

    System resurrection Page

    Install has more options and is designed for packages to use. Mkdir just makes a simple directory; it's like "install-lite".

    /usr/bin: file not recognized: It is a directory

    Thanks @ballsystemlord this happened to me today and I wasn't sure how to solved it. Curiously trying to emerge the same package than you, chrooting from a SystemRescueCD.
  20. I think I'm past this. Identified texinfo as the package with the MiscXS library and it does have a perl module attached. Did an `emerge --nodeps texinfo` to update that and now I'm rolling again. Not sure why perl-cleaner didn't catch that. Sometimes solutions just require a little sleep.

    exim MAIL FROM for external redirects

    I'm not sure about exim, but it think it's common for <> to be used for forwarding. Because of this, some servers will not accept forwarded mail because of the null sender address. Is that what you are running into? One should be able to check the logs to see what indeed is being used as the sender address on forwarded messages.
  22. I did some test runs regarding building a customized Funtoo live cd. The Devuan live-sdk looks nice and clean but it works only with zsh and I could not get it fully working. The Are31 live cd also looks promising and I gonna play around a bit more. Nice work done with that! Just wondering what a minimal sized live cd of that would be 🤔 Interestingly I stumbled upon another project (https://github.com/ivandavidov/minimal) which produces quite small live cds of around 10MB. It is limited by default to BusyBox, Dropbear, etc. Seems also to work in Docker. Perhaps it would make sense to customize something like this for a minimal footprint.
  23. Upgrading to 1.3. When running `emerge -auDN @system --ignore-world` I get a failure building automake. MiscXS.c: loadable library and perl binaries are mismatched (got handshake key 0xd600000, needed 0xd880000) make: *** [Makefile:2518: doc/automake.info] Error 1 * ERROR: sys-devel/automake-1.15.1-r2::core-kit failed (install phase): * emake failed I may have screwed things up. I originally got through this step and then had to aggressively clean up packages to clear conflicts in the world build. Eventually I got this same error building gpm. So I went back and ran perl-cleaner with --reallyall and now I get the error on automake in the @system build. build.log emerge.pkg emerge.info

    Opinion* Best way to run Steam?

    Sweet, I still have had no issues running with flatpak. I use it for anything that's a dependency nightmare, thanks for the feedback though.
  25. The previous version of Funtoo was AMD Jaguar Stage3 file, but in the 1.3 version I can't find the AMD Jaguar subarch in https://build.funtoo.org/1.3-release-std/x86-64bit/ Will be there stage3 for AMD Jaguar subarch, in the near future ? Thx.
  26. I'm just glad that we have this awesome distro to avoid all that garbage. Thanks to everyone who contributes!
  27. I really do recommend checking out the Devuan live CD. It has a tool named refactra that will allow you to create a customized Devuan live iso. If you truly want to create your own personal mini-distro you could even use the Devuan Simple Distro Kit (SDK). Unless you are stuck with very limited bandwidth either option will give you a great deal of choice and perhaps help you create the perfect personalized tool kit.
