    A full set of Funtoo Linux 1.4 maintenance release 2 stages has been uploaded to build.funtoo.org. These stages include: GNOME 3.34.2 Updates to debian-sources-lts (4.19.87_p1) Updated Linux firmware Updated firefox Various other fixes If you are already using 1.4, you can get all these updates via a regular ego sync and world update. But if you are planning to install 1.4 from scratch, these builds are up-to-date.

    Some more updates headed your way: nvidia-drivers-440.44 now available. Remember that you will also need to emerge nvidia-kernel-drivers for your kernel to make the kernel modules available. steam-nvidia-launcher is now at 1.5. Fixed are annoying gtk+ dialog messages when starting up the launcher, and also FL-6907 (thanks @nrc) the pulseaudio config hard-coded for UID 1000.

    Recent Funtoo News: GNOME 3.34.3 is now available in Funtoo (as part of gnome-kit 3.34-prime, the default kit) A Gentoo dev found that it is theoretically possible for arbitrary users on the system to locallly 'exploit' a package while it is being built. Portage-2.3.78-r1 addresses this by removing 'other' permissions from /var/tmp/portage. ego-2.8.0 is released with updated sync code.

    Running 32-bit Win apps requires 32-bit wine. The wine available in 1.4 is 64-bit and will not run 32-bit Win binaries. The following is a quick writeup on how I did it. There are other ways, possibly better, but this one is mine and I stand by it. 🙂 I opted to use a chrooted 32-bit environment in which I installed Gentoo and wine. I started by making a ~/gentoo folder and downloading a current 32-bit Gentoo stage3 in it: mkdir gentoo cd gentoo wget <stage3_URL> You need to be root for the following steps sudo su tar xpf <stage3> cp /etc/resolv.conf /home/<username>/gentoo/etc And then follow the installation steps in the Gentoo manual mount -t proc none proc mount --rbind /sys sys mount --rbind /dev dev env -i HOME=/root TERM=$TERM /bin/chroot . bash -l # export PS1="(chroot) $PS1" (chroot)# emerge-webrsync (chroot)# emerge --sync (chroot)# eselect profile list and select a desktop profile. For me it was #5, default/linux/x86/17.0/desktop (stable). The desktop profile brings in Xorg which will be needed later for wine anyway. (chroot)# eselect profile set 5 Edit make.conf to add the correct MAKEOPTS ("-j7" worked for me) then do a world update, and go do something else for a couple of hours. (chroot)# emerge -avuDN @world Once done, set up Xserver redirection in chroot so it displays the image on the host. On the host: xauth list will show you the "magic" cookie of your host display. Put it into .Xauthority on the chroot: sudo xauth extract <path_to_chroot>/root/.Xauthority <hostname>/unix:0 where <hostname> is the name of your host machine (mine is eb1) (edit) NB when you log out of your host then log back in, the cookie changes so you will have to redo the line above, or X redirection will stop working. In the chroot, verify that the cookie is set correctly: (chroot)# xauth list should show the same as on the host Also set the DISPLAY variable in chroot: (host) echo $DISPLAY should show ":0.0" (chroot)# export DISPLAY=":0.0" You can add the above line to /etc/profile in Gentoo so it gets automatically set every time you enter the chroot. Verify that it works. In chroot run xcalc (you may have to install xcalc first), and it should display on the host. (chroot)# xcalc If no errors, emerge wine in the chroot and configure it. You should have a 32-bit wine now, ready to run 32-bit Windows binaries (minus configuring, figuring out missing libs etc - but this is beyond the scope of this writeup) (chroot)# emerge wine Final size of the chroot Gentoo on my disk was close to 4.5GB.

    pangomm & libreoffice error

    Hey guys, having some problems trying to install pango mm: pangomm and libreoffice-bin: !!! Multiple package instances within a single package slot have been pulled !!! into the dependency graph, resulting in a slot conflict: dev-libs/boost:0 (dev-libs/boost-1.65.0:0/1.65.0::core-kit, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by dev-libs/boost:0/1.65.0 required by (app-office/libreoffice-bin-6.2.4.2:0/0::desktop-kit, ebuild scheduled for merge) ^^^^^^^^^ (dev-libs/boost-1.70.0:0/1.70.0::core-kit, installed) pulled in by >=dev-libs/boost-1.65.1:0/1.70.0= required by (sys-fs/cryfs-0.10.2:0/0::core-kit, installed) ^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ (and 1 more with the same problem) app-text/hunspell:0 (app-text/hunspell-1.6.2-r1:0/1.6::text-kit, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by app-text/hunspell:0/1.6 required by (app-office/libreoffice-bin-6.2.4.2:0/0::desktop-kit, ebuild scheduled for merge) ^^^^^^ (app-text/hunspell-1.7.0:0/1.7::text-kit, installed) pulled in by app-text/hunspell:0/1.7= required by (kde-frameworks/sonnet-5.59.0:5/5.59::kde-kit, installed) ^^^^^^^ (and 1 more with the same problem) NOTE: Use the '--verbose-conflicts' option to display parents omitted above It may be possible to solve this problem by using package.mask to prevent one of those packages from being selected. However, it is also possible that conflicting dependencies exist such that they are impossible to satisfy simultaneously. If such a conflict exists in the dependencies of two different packages, then those packages can not be installed simultaneously. You may want to try a larger value of the --backtrack option, such as --backtrack=30, in order to see if that will solve this conflict automatically. For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook. Thanks!

    1.3 EOL: March 1, 2020, 1.4 MR2

    As Funtoo Linux 1.4 continues to mature, it has become a much better long-term stable option than Funtoo Linux 1.3, so maintenance and updates for 1.3 will end on March 1, 2020, and users are encouraged to upgrade to 1.4 at this time, or before. In about a week, there will be a second maintenance release of Funtoo Linux 1.4, which will simply be rolled into the official 1.4 release, but will result in updated binary stage3s and GNOME stage3s. The updates will include bumping GNOME from 3.34.1 to 3.34.2 as well as upstream kernel updates with the latest security fixes, in particular ones focused on side-channel vulnerabilities on Intel systems. These updated stages will have 2020-01 timestamps and will be good options for those needing to reinstall an existing 1.3 environment.

    corrupt meta-repo

    All the repos are git repositories. So usually the easiest way is to clone a fresh copy of the meta-repo. mv /var/git/meta-repo /var/git/meta-repo.old ego sync ego will clone a fresh copy of the meta-repo from Github. Since this is a case where Virtualbox crashed, I also recommend performing file system checks if they have not been performed automatically.
