    Funtoo Stages and Release 1.2

    Hi All, By default, we are now building stage3's using Funtoo Linux 1.2 release as default. This means that new installs will have this in their /etc/ego.conf: [global] release = 1.2 If you are still using release 1.0, that's fine -- your system will continue to use 1.0. When you upgrade to ego 2.4.1 or later, you will be able to set the release as above in your ego.conf, re-run "ego sync", and you will be upgraded to the 1.2 release. The release= setting is simply a short-hand for setting the various 1.2-related kits individually in the [kits] section, so many of you are already running 1.2. Best, Daniel

    Many things to test

    The following ebuilds are available for testing by end users and are currently keyword-masked. Add the following to your package.accept_keywords to test: =sys-apps/portage-2.3.47 ** =sys-devel/gcc-7.3.1-r3 ** =sys-apps/corenetwork-1.6.4 ** =x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel-2.99.917_p20180609 ** Here is a quick review of changes in the above packages. Portage is a new version from Gentoo, which has passed all unit tests. Gcc-7.3.1-r3 is a much-improved ebuild from @Temptorsent which now enables SSP by default for improved security. Corenetwork-1.6.4 has some bug fixes that have accumulated in git, and the new xf86-video-intel is the latest from git and needs testing, particularly on newer intel hardware like Coffee Lake and Kaby Lake refresh -- and it always seems like google chrome has rendering issues, so be sure to test Chrome with this driver. Please test these things and report back your experiences.

    Funtoo improves Dropbox

    Hi All, I've just massively reworked the net-misc/dropbox ebuild to provide a much better experience in Funtoo and you should see this showing up in the next few hours. I couldn't get the Gentoo dropbox working reliably. Here is a list of all the changes: Updated to dropbox-39.4.49.ebuild No longer has an initscript It now sets up ~/.dropbox-dist for each user who sets up dropbox (rather than having a system dropbox install) You don't need to be in the "dropbox" group to use the dropbox nautilus (gnome file browser) extension gnome support is built-in (as long as "gnome" is set in USE, which it is if you are using the GNOME mix-in.) Reworked the python 'dropbox' script to provide a better user experience and be optimal for Funtoo: if you start "dropbox" for the first time from GNOME, it will start a GTK+ installer to set up dropbox for you. if you don't have a GUI, you can still install dropbox The above two features are existing features of dropbox that were somewhat borked in Gentoo. At the end of the setup process, you are given instructions on how to enable dropbox on startup. dropbox command-line tool is also included. Please note that if you have nautilus-dropbox installed, you will need to remove it. This should result in a really nice experience for dropbox users. Use as follows: # emerge dropbox (make sure it's 39.4.49 -- this is the new version.) (as regular user:) $ dropbox start -i This will initialize the ~/.dropbox-dist directory for the user via a command-line or GTK+ interface. Once this is done, dropbox start should be added to your .bash_login and/or .xprofile and can be run immediately to start dropbox in your current session. Since the ebuild is completely new, the possibility of bugs exist. Please report bugs at https://bugs.funtoo.org . Thanks. -Daniel

    gnome-kit 3.26-prime now default

    Hi All, gnome-kit 3.26-prime has been made the default gnome-kit, upgraded from 3.20-prime. emerge -auDN @world and a restart of xdm should be sufficient to upgrade to the new GNOME. I did keep the older gnome-control-center due to really bad multi-monitor configuration in 3.26's control center. Everything else is upgraded to 3.26. -Daniel

    Welcome to the new forums!

    I just fixed login-related issues. Funtoo users who had not used the forums before were unable to log in. I've also fixed the password reset link to go to our official password reset page, as well as the create account link. So logins should be working well. One note is that if you were are user of the old forums, and you changed your 'displayname' to show something other than your username, then your forums account username will be your displayname. You can alternatively try logging in with your email as your username instead. Everyone else should be good to go using their funtoo username (and password, of course) to log in here.
