    Hey everyone, Funtoo Linux 1.4 maintenance release 3 has been available for a few days, and includes our official WebKit builds, updated security-patched kernels and GNOME 3.34.3 pre-built. Also of note: the addition of the new WebKit temporarily broke wayland builds. This is now resolved and GNOME now builds correctly with the wayland mix-in. Also, important: The #funtoo freenode channel will be shut down in around 24 hours, as I no longer use freenode so I can't continue to op the channel there. Please switch to our official chat on Discord and Telegram. Thanks! Telegram: more informal: https://t.me/funtoolinux Discord: "official" chat: https://discord.gg/BNUSpUU

    Fixing meta-repo issues

    Today I made a mistake and updated meta-repo using my older environment instead of the newer one I had set up recently. This resulted in some problems with meta-repo. I have fixed the problems but you may need to perform a few steps to 'fix' things if you did an ego sync today (Feb 6 2020) If you have synced today, you may need to rm -rf /var/git/meta-repo && ego sync as the branches got out of sync with their git history. You will know this because when you ego sync, it will tell you that 'history has diverged' (if you look at git output) and you'll see output from git like "please tell me who you are" (wanting your name and email) because it's trying to do a merge commit rather than fast-forwarding. You may also see editors-kit not sync successfully. If you didn't sync today, you should be fine and everything should continue working next sync. The fix should be pretty easy -- sorry for the issue.

    Hi folks O/ few years ago I wonder about a friendly version of Gentoo and Funtoo, the gentoo community don't liked, but I keep did some tests but I didn't continue, well, few week ago I start again, but this time only a Funtoo Friendly version, and now I have something really beginning. the project will resume in few flavors and one version with a overlay with update packages and few extra. the funtoo flavors are X+openbox, gnome and Plasma, they are just the Funtoo Stage3 Generic with few packages and some configuration. and has one version with plasma, but with an overlay with few update packages and other stuffs, a stage more out of the box, I want make something to people learn about gentoo/funtoo or for who use the system without spent hours to build the system. the webiste will be done in the next weeks, and the stages will be available in the next days "sorry, I'm with one pc now, and the net is a turtle". website -> https://bentoo.info/ binhost -> http://binhost.bentoo.info github repos : overlay -> https://github.com/lucascouts/bentoo configurations -> https://github.com/lucascouts/bentoo-cfg I don't know if the funtoo community will like but anyway I'll forward with this project, but will be great if few users could help with feedback or criticisms. thank you anyway ?

    1.4 -- Even More New Stuff

    There has been a lot of updates to Funtoo Linux 1.4 since its release -- most of these not officially announced. So it would be a good idea to make an official announcement of many of them: SELinux Updates Firefox and Firefox-bin 69, updated thunderbird. New gfxcard-nvidia-legacy mix-in for older drivers. Updated NVIDIA drivers to latest releases. Conky updated. kde-plasma merge fixes. mesa merge fixes and version bump. ffpmeg updated to latest release, with fixes for arm-64bit. Latest Spotify release added. Openrc net-online major improvements. New Language added: crystal (check it out) debian-sources/debian-sources-lts updates and now compile using your -march settings (since custom-cflags is now enabled by default.) Prior to this they compiled using generic 64-bit optimizations on x86-64bit. New encrypted-root mix-in to be used to enable LUKS in genkernel/debian-sources(-lts). To use, enable this mix-in and re-build your debian-sources(-lts) kernel. Rust-kit is now at 1.37-prime New dev-lua/lua and fixes for lua-using packages. Ebuilds using lua-5.2+ should use the new dev-lua/lua ebuild (not the legacy dev-lua/lua.) fwupd bumped to 1.3.1 nginx, nginx-unit, dovecot, php, mariadb vivaldi updated dovecot updated Anything I forgot? Follow up in this discussion thread. MANY OF THESE FIXES WERE SUBMITTED BY OUR USERS! Thanks to bcowan, perfinion, jhan, tux, tczaude, KlipKyle, scottfurry and anyone I forgot to mention for making Funtoo better for everyone πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
