    1.2 Funtoo Linux Release

    Hi All, The Funtoo Linux 1.2 release is now available for use. Many of us are now running Funtoo Linux 1.2. Here's how to upgrade your system to Funtoo Linux 1.2. Note that soon, 1.2 will be the "default" version of Funtoo Linux. For now, you need to perform certain steps to switch over. We're doing this so that power users can switch over right away, and so we can make things a lot easier for less-experienced users to upgrade to Funtoo Linux 1.2. One of the features I have been working on behind-the-scenes is an "easy upgrade" functionality for ego, to perform big updates automatically. This functionality is not yet ready, but is being worked on. When this "easy upgrade" functionality is ready, 1.2 will be released via "easy upgrade" to systems who have not yet upgraded. For now, power users can upgrade by performing the following steps. First, select the new kits in your /etc/ego.conf: [kits] core-kit = 1.2-prime security-kit = 1.2-prime kde-kit = 5.12-prime media-kit = 1.2-prime java-kit = 1.2-prime ruby-kit = 1.2-prime haskell-kit = 1.2-prime lisp-scheme-kit = 1.2-prime lang-kit = 1.2-prime dev-kit = 1.2-prime desktop-kit = 1.2-prime Then, perform the following steps, as root: # ego sync This will activate the new kits. Next, # emerge -u1 gcc This will upgrade gcc. Next, # emerge -u1 glibc libnsl libtirpc rpcsvc-proto Glibc will now be upgraded. Next, # emerge -auDN @system This will upgrade your core system set of packages. Next, # emerge -auDN @world This will upgrade all other packages. Next, # emerge @preserved-rebuild This will rebuild packages that are linked to old libraries. Now, final step: # revdep-rebuild --library 'libstdc++.so.6' -- --exclude sys-devel/gcc This will rebuild all remaining packages that need to be linked against the new libstdc++. At this point, you are now upgraded to Funtoo Linux 1.2! Please report any bugs to https://bugs.funtoo.org and let us know of any issues you experience, either as part of the upgrade, related to dependencies, or related to functionality on your upgraded system.

    New fastpull distfile service

    Hi All, Thanks to funtoo supporters, we now have a new fast download service that is available for everyone. Upgrading to the latest portage-2.3.25_beta2 will enable this service. The fastpull service consists of a lot of different moving parts, but it adds up to distfiles downloading very fast and being available. Here's how it works. When we regenerate meta-repo and kits, ebuilds are scanned for new SRC_URI tarballs, etc. These new distfiles are queued for download. Our fastpull spider then downloads these distfiles automatically, and uploads them to Google Cloud Storage. When you try to download a SRC_URI, you hit https://fastpull-us.funtoo.org first, which redirects you to the download on fast Google Cloud Storage. The design of fastpull is to ensure that all distfiles are always available going forward. It will also help us to identify situations where for some reason or another we are missing a distfile for download, although these situations should happen less and less frequently (and hopefully disappear) now that fastpull is deployed. Best, Daniel Robbins

    LLVM updates

    New kit, lllvm-kit now added. It consist of small numbers of ebuilds that are directly related to the sys-devel/llvm. The rationale behind this is that ebuilds for llvm had no update for very long time and are problematic to maintain due to those ebuilds were spread all over different kits. Now they are from one kit. This kit is enabled by default and involves following update steps: ego sync emerge -C llvm:0 clang:0 emerge -1 llvm mesa emerge -auDN @world emerge @preserved-rebuild
