  1. Everyone, arm-32bit and arm-64bit builds of Funtoo Linux 1.3 are now available. Search for "arm" on this page using the search field right above the table to see them: https://www.funtoo.org/Subarches Enjoy. Also note that we could use some help with updating install docs for raspberry pis as well as odroid-xu4, which I hear now should run fine with our debian-sources-lts? If you look at our odroid-xu4 page here, you'll see that at the top we link to an install guide specific to this board. I'd like to have docs like this for all the raspis as well: https://www.funtoo.org/ODROID-XU4 Thanks, Daniel
  2. We finally have an answer to this question: official Funtoo AWS images: https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B07KT3VN7Q?qid=1548635103743&sr=0-1&ref_=srh_res_product_title

    Searching sponsored vps for building iso images

    If you look on the https://www.funtoo.org/Funtoo_Containers page it has info about public keys. No, you should NEVER send anyone your id_rsa (private) key -- it's called private for a reason 🙂 It's like giving someone the key to your house or car. 🙂 I am able to create new containers now.
  4. Hi All, I've created a new YouTube vlog entry for your enjoyment. This one is about the latest shocking news of being let go from a job. View it here -- I appreciate it if you help me get the word out about my channel, send me some upwardly-pointing thumbs and possibly even subscribe! 🙂 Thanks! Best, Daniel
  5. Nice, thanks for the review! 🙂

    Funtoo slow in my netbook :(

    My first guess would be slow video drivers. You need to be more specific though -- what part of the system is "slow"? Video? Disk? CPU? I know it may seem slow overall but you need to be specific if you want some assistance 🙂

    Yes, the more people who use our tools, find bugs, report bugs, report fixes -- the better they get 🙂 Send me a private email at support@funtoo.org with the hostname you want -- something.host.funtoo.org -- along with a public ssh key for the root login, and I will get this set up in the next day or so.

    I have the issues resolved. I can't make your project 'official' -- it will be your own project, but I support your work. And please submit fixes and improvements upstream to funtoo. Do we have a deal? 🙂

    Dealing with multilib removal

    Our GPU-accelerated container solution should work for people in both these cases. We're currently working on it.
  10. Everyone, Funtoo Linux 1.3 is now officially released. Check out a detailed description of all the changes here: https://www.funtoo.org/Release_Notes/1.3-release Best, Daniel

    I can provide a container in a few days when I resolve some issues with our new datacenter.

    Long time After login

    Awesome, glad to hear. That's one of the reasons why it's good to have a standard configuration that we test -- if there is a problem, you just gradually move more and more towards 'standard' (our standard kernel, etc.) and eventually find the solution -- as you did.

    Long time After login

    Make sure you are using 1.3-release, have enabled gnome as well as kde-plasma mix-ins and updated all your packages. KDE plasma starts after a few seconds delay here, but not a "long time" as you describe. Also check your logs and Xorg log for anything unusual. Make sure elogind has been added to the boot runlevel and started.

    Dealing with multilib removal

    First, definitely try running stuff, and report any 32-bit issues on the Funtoo bug tracker. We're working on documenting various ways to work around various strange apps but need some bugs reported first. Also, post specifics here of issues you are encountering and we'll help you out. There are a number of approaches including chroot as you mentioned, as well as containers, and we would rather put our effort towards containers/docker solutions than continue to support legacy 32-bit multilib stuff. We want to move forward with a 'multiple roots' concept rather than treating a system as a single root. Best, Daniel

    Insert Data Into Text File

    We actually have funtoo articles on how to use awk that I originally wrote for IBM developerWorks. They cover this. It's a three-part series starting here: https://www.funtoo.org/Awk_by_Example,_Part_1 Enjoy, Daniel
