    Hi All, I've upgraded our authentication framework, and you should be able to log in. But the migration was not without hiccups. You should be able to log in to forums, wiki, bugs, code.funtoo.org and friends. You might notice that some bugs on bugs.funtoo.org have my name listed as "drobbins#1". This isn't because I think I'm awesome, but because our migration triggered some bad behavior in JIRA and I need to repair its user database. It's annoying, but very fixable, and I'll get to this soon, and should continue to work in the meantime. If you have login issues, please message me privately on the forums, or contact me directly on discord or telegram (links on the main wiki page.)

    New steam-nvidia-launcher

    Steam now has an official launcher script to make it easier to use, called "steam-nvidia-launcher". I've updated the Steam documentation at https://www.funtoo.org/Steam to now direct users to use the launcher script instead. It's easier to use and more robust, as you just have one script that does everything from download the docker image, to create the container, to start the container if it already exists and needs to be started locally. steam-nvidia-launcher also fixes a bug where the Steam container wouldn't start consistently after a reboot. Launcher is available here. Remember to consult the wiki (link above) for usage info: https://code.funtoo.org/bitbucket/users/drobbins/repos/docker-steam/browse/steam-nvidia-launcher

    Best epub/ebook reader?

    Yeah, was going to say I just found out there is an ebuild for fbreader; I couldn't check at the time of my original post because I was waiting for calibre to emerge (which failed BTW, I posted a bug report). Trying to install fbreader now. Thanks! (edit) fbreader installed correctly, seems to be the one I was looking for. Thank you again.

    AMD FirePro V4900 - Configuration help

    Hi @jhan, @nrc, With your help, I manage to fix the issues. What I was missing was to remerge the linux-firmware after doing correct configuration of the mesa and xorg-drivers. Thanks a lot!

    Flatpak

    Since 1.3 was released I've been using this Gentoo overlay (using the local repository method) to install flatpak and Steam in it: https://github.com/fosero/flatpak-overlay It works well even after upgrading to 1.4

    You and I are on the cusp of a political discussion here 🙂 but I would argue that even "reputable" sites these days are spewing propaganda, so there is no substitute for critical thinking. We do not live in an ethical age. Whether intentional or the result of our modern echo chamber, there is misleading information EVERYWHERE online and I couldn't really tell you ANY trustworthy source of information that I would tell you that you could trust implicitly. Even Associated Press and Reuters seem horribly compromised and full of spin! Every journalist seems to want to write an atomic bomb of a news story and go though such extreme lengths to try to inject bias while remaining 'factual' -- it would be comical if it weren't so sad. Assuming a posture of skepticism and "it's probably not as bad as it sounds" is highly recommended when looking at sources of information online. Politics is the art of getting a ton of people pissed off and then leveraging that energy -- and doing this online is known to be extremely effective. So you just have to be wary. Don't be a pawn. Now, as for the other issues you raised, I guess I can read and think about those now that I've vented 🙂

    Funtoo is now on Discord

    For those who may not understand the embracing of next-gen communication clients... it's really not about the technology here. We have people who use Discord and Telegram already, and do not like IRC. I, personally, am really enjoying the newer communities over freenode. I feel like there's too much rumors/OSS politics on freenode these days. I spend my time on freenode dealing with this crap rather than having fun and moving Funtoo forward. I see too much weird community dynamics -- too much drama, and we're sitting right next to the Gentoo channels and there is often unpleasant "overspray" I need to deal with -- things like "hey drobbins, did you see that person X is saying thing Y about Funtoo and/or you in channel Z?" Then I feel obligated to personally deal with it. If you are someone who loves freenode and the freenode community, you should be there. I have been using freenode since before it was called freenode. I remember when lilo (now deceased, and relentlessly attacked by his detractors) ran the show. Freenode, despite its reputation for being the place on the Internet for OSS-related chat, has always been a rough place socially to some degree. The truth is that there are a lot of options for Funtoo users to find a community that works for them, and I'm really happy to be not just on Discord but on Telegram too: https://t.me/funtoolinux The important thing is to find a community that is a positive environment for you, that gives you energy rather than takes it away, so for these reasons I am very glad for Discord and now Telegram and think everyone should be too 🙂 The newer technology is also nice -- like being able to edit posts, post actual screenshots into the channel for support purposes, funny gifs, voice support, *amazing mobile clients*, etc etc etc. -Daniel
