  1. Hey everyone, I'm pleased to announce that Funtoo Linux and Sabayon (https://www.sabayon.org) are joining forces! Now to explain what this means and how it came about. Sabayon is one of the great Open Source projects and has an amazing reputation for delivering an easy-to-use Linux desktop that is built using Gentoo. For quite a while, Funtoo has been supporting the Sabayon effort because we believe in what they do. Over the past several months, in chatting with the Sabayon team, it became really clear that we had a shared vision for creating a friendly and innovative commu

    The Funtoo Way

    Hey everyone, I have updated our Development Guide to contain information on the "Funtoo Way". The "Funtoo Way" is a really important philosophy about how we do things at Funtoo and I strongly encourage everyone to read it, even if you don't consider yourself a "developer". It helps to explain how our community works and how we can work together. https://www.funtoo.org/Development_Guide Best, Daniel

  3. Hi All, I wanted to let everyone know about "next" release -- which is the new release of Funtoo that is intended to receive regular updates to all the latest packages. Currently, a generic_64 build of next-release is available here: https://build.funtoo.org/next/x86-64bit/generic_64/ 'next' release currently includes gcc-11.2.0 and an updated unified binutils (binutils and binutils-libs have been combined, and binutils-config has been removed.) It also has a small handful of updated packages. Our intention is to gradually add more and more auto-generated ebuilds to 'n

  4. @zogg I will answer you. "From recent activity it seems like funtoo development (except autogenerated updates mostly) is getting to mostly none, including activity even in on this forum." This is an interesting and funny perspective, because it's actually just the opposite. Funtoo is more active than it has ever been, and we are starting to collaborate with Sabayon on next-gen projects, and we have been growing our Funtoo dev team too. One thing to realize is that Gentoo has 200+ developers and Funtoo up until recently has had maybe 2-3 developers at most active at a time, but o

  6. Oops, I forgot to tell you how to set up next-release. You have two options. One is to use the stage3 to install a new next system. The other option is to convert an existing system to next-release. To convert a system to next-release: Do a world update on your system and specifically ensure you have the latest portage and ego installed. Add "release = next" to the "[global]" section of /etc/ego.conf Run "ego sync" Then run "epro build next". Now you are ready to do another world update to get gcc, binutils and other updates. PLEASE NOTE: When you do t

  9. @zoggalso, I should say that I do appreciate you connecting and communicating your thoughts. For someone who is not as involved, perception is the reality. So I will look at what I can do to improve this, and welcome your involvement as well to try to address these things. For roadmap, a lot of this has come down to LACK OF TRUST. On freenode, I had people actually doing 'silent forks' of Funtoo and ripping off my ideas. I have had people who I have told about future plans start to try to do them -- but leave me out! So many people are trying to 'make a splash' in software, and are not ne

  10. A much needed update for kde-plasma/plasma-meta to 5.20.5 is in Funtoo repositories! We hope KDE users will enjoy this as a lot of hard work has gone into this one with over 500 KDE-plasma packages updated. If for some reason you find a bug, please report it with the relevant information needed to help troubleshoot the issue to https://bugs.funtoo.org so it can be fixed as soon as possible. Thanks in advance! If you have questions, issues, or just want to drop in and say hello you can find us on Discord https://discord.gg/BNUSpUU or Telegram https://t.me/funtoolinux

  11. I have posted an announcement on www.funtoo.org that we are doing an official "End of Year" pause for 2020. 2020 has been an interesting year and this is a good time to take a break if you have vacation. Funtoo will be back in 2021. Tree updates will be minimal during the break.

  14. Linux, and Funtoo, are international. His (her?) native language (very likely) may not be English. Nor is mine ๐Ÿ˜‰ It also means (s)he may not be aware of 'social rules' that govern (online) conversation in English. And even so, discussions on the web always miss a vital component in human interaction: non-verbal communication. Body-language. Smileys, and by extension emoticons, are a way to circumvent this, but generally do a poor job, TBH. To be frank, there is a valid point in his comments: not every Funtoo user is a coder. Not every Funtoo user wants to use Discord, let alone be

  15. Hi, first of all thanks for answer. First of all it is interesting that you go on offense as defense and state that my questions are trolling :) I mean common, did I blame you that manpower of the project is much smaller than gentoo? I do not think in any way that you or anyone here own me anything, all of all I'm trying to understand the state and if I (maybe others who share same feeling) need to worry or re-calculate path if Funtoo is for them. Moreover I am the one who stated the shortage of developers in the first place, but somehow your answer is still that offense that I'

  18. Wait what? I am missing the point? Okay, os you basically saying that creating autogenerated ebuilds and not breaking updates is stable? Kit based when same kits have outdated versions is stable? So year+ old software would never have any vulnerabilities or bugs just because it "aged like wine?", did I get you correctly? Or maybe you also do not include those bugfixes and CVE fixes? How do you decide what updates are matter for user? Stability is not updates that are not breaking, stability is decent versions while the point of distro and it's maintainers to provide the s

  19. โ˜๏ธ There are so many packages that are outdated, e.g. xfce4 whole kit is old, a lot of packages are not updated. I am not sure that autogeneration and copying ebuilds from gentoo is "active". Moreover gentoo has bumped EAPI already and new ebuilds are not compatible with Funtoo

    Steam flatpak install

    Your steam installation in Flatpak should have a bin_steam.sh in /../com.valvesoftware.Steam/current/active/files/lib/steam. Also a bootstrap.....tar.xz file. The script unpacks the bootstrap file in a .local/share/Steam directory. The bin_steam.sh script tells you where it installs around line 95: function install_bootstrap() { STEAMDIR="$1" # Save the umask and set strong permissions omask="$(umask)" umask 0077 echo $"Setting up Steam content in $STEAMDIR" Towards the end of the script there is the function check

    Funtoo KDE strategy?

    Hi fellows, Some time ago I was forced to abandon Funtoo to Gentoo as the KDE tree fell hopelessly behind. I did not have the time nor the funto-mirroring-know-how to get involved in the matter. I did try to use the ebuilds from Gentoo by that became a dependency nightmare. Quite a lot have changed in Funtoo since then. Recently there has been a general upgrade of the kde-plasma/plasma-meta and KDE was up to date for a while, but are no longer. Question is, will the status of KDE depend on once in a while heroic efforts or are Funtoo aiming to mirror either Gentoo or KDE trees so t

  28. Just a note -- I forgot to re-enable gdm for GNOME, so SDDM is still the default for GNOME. Some notes here -- By default, SDDM will try to start a "GNOME on Wayland" session which will fail. Just toggle it to "GNOME on Xorg" in the top-left drop-down. And if you want to switch to GDM, just edit /etc/conf.d/xdm as root and change "sddm" to "gdm" and reboot. Then you'll be using GDM.

    AWS Image retired?

    I tried to spin up an image (my first time using it). The error I got seemed to suggest that it was still available to users that had already accepted the terms, but no new users could use it. I mentioned it to @drobbins on discord and he had gotten the same mail you got. He indicated he was trying to track it down and sort it out with AWS. https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-7846 is the bug number.

  36. i pulled the better-initramfs stuff out, the ebuilds missing from portage, & we should not depend on remote initramfs images. debian-sources initramfs supports dmcrypt && luks && lvm.... it does all of them. i can get my build to boot, but it's a dirty ugly hack to get it to boot. its a misplaced detail SOMEWHERE.... and i think it's not supporting partlabel, requiring uuid for crypt root. i point the misloaded initrd @ /dev/sdc3 and it unlocks & finishes booting fine. it's all gravy now

  37. I tried to make this clear in the announcement, but it is worth explaining in more detail -- Sabayon Linux and Funtoo Linux are going to remain distinct things. We will make the Funtoo tree work for Sabayon so we can all contribute to the same set of packages. There is no implied change to either Funtoo or Sabayon, besides Sabayon moving to use the Funtoo tree, by announcing this collaboration. Each project continues to make decisions for its own community with no obligation to switch to different technologies unless one project decides it wants to. Over time, we will be collabo

  38. Since they're pulling gentoo packages I'm not sure how much difference the freshness of the ISO makes. I assume it's a stage4/installer package and you can build from there. For comparison, Funtoo 1.4 was released Sept '19. That's the interesting thing about this, if they have an easy installer and a more friendly package manager it could significantly extend Funtoo's reach. They are at least in the top 100 on distrowatch. That probably represents at least a doubling of users benefiting from Funtoo developments. The one concern for me is that Sabayon currently ships with systemd a

  39. Hi All, To get ready for future improvements to Funtoo, I am adopting a multi-phased approach to 'fix Python'. First step is to address some issues that exist in the Gentoo python eclasses. I've updated these eclasses to be at least somewhat better than they are in Gentoo. These changes will be hitting the tree in an hour or so. For new ebuilds, you can now use the following rather than enumerating every single version of Python: PYTHON_COMPAT=( python3+ ) Because the minimum version of python3 we support is 3.7, this will ensure that the ebuild will be marked compatible with 3.7 a

There are other ways, possibly better, but this one is mine and I stand by it. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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

  43. If you check the Jira bug tracker or Discord site things are reasonably active. I think the "roadmap" is "keep making Funtoo more current and more maintainable." All the work that has gone into kits and now autogen packages has made a big difference in that respect. @drobbins pondered whether a forum was still necessary and relevant the last time he revamped the site. I felt at the time it was still important to provide that visible, easy gateway into the community for new people. But it just doesn't seem to be the kind of center of activity for the project that forums used to be so

Can we get an update on the current state, what is the roadmap and future of the project? And if I'm correct and funtoo project is declining, is there any plans to provide proper solution to migrate to gentoo without the need to setup everything from scratch.
