  1. Recent updates to the Portage tree will cause Portage to want to rebuild nearly everything on Funtoo systems. When you experience this after a world update, there is a way to avoid rebuilding everything. To work around this, run the following script as root: #!/usr/bin/python3 import os bad_flags = {"abi_riscv_lp64", "abi_riscv_lp64d"} for dp, dn, fn in os.walk("/var/db/pkg"): for targ_fn in [ "IUSE", "IUSE_EFFECTIVE" ]: if targ_fn not in fn: continue usep = os.path.join(dp, targ_fn) with open(usep, "r") as usef: old_dat = usef.read()
  2. 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.
  3. This is just @pnoecker talking about his personal systems, not funtoo...
  4. That's a shame, always thought it was cool that you were using JFS. JFS is the filesystem I have played with the least. When I was writing IBM developerWorks articles, it was time for me to write about JFS (which came from IBM) and I could not get it to work at all. IBM wasn't happy about that and I was no longer writing IBM articles after that.
  5. @nrc not retired but the account in AWS Marketplace I used to create it went away. We will be working on getting updated 1.4 images and there is a bug open for this.
  6. 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.
  7. Hey everyone -- the latest Funtoo stages have arrived! (they have dates from 2020-12-14 to 2020-12-15). Improvements: Docker images updated on DockerHub: https://hub.docker.com/u/funtoo VMware Workstation Guest Support in GNOME stages: By default, GNOME stages are now able to run inside VMware Workstation by simply following the Install Guide. Just be sure to enable 3D acceleration in your VM config (this typically is not turned on by default.) Open-vm-tools has been added to the GNOME stage3 and will enable itself if it detects that it's running in a VMware VM. Also, VirtualBox
  8. I do not have the UI built out for this yet, but you can contact me via PM on the forums and I can change it for you.
  9. @rekena I am not seeing anything obvious from what you posted indicating a problem. As @lego12239 asked, what specifically are you seeing? Based on what you originally said, it sounds like GRUB is not even loading for you? If this is the case, then we want to make sure grub bootloader has been installed, so.... Make sure you have run the "grub-install (with arguments from install docs)" command from the install instructions. This will install the boot loader. Then run "ego boot update" in chroot. Then when you reboot grub should load. If grub is loading, but the kernel can't find the
  10. This is normal. The grub.cfg paths are relative to /boot.
  11. This is probably not the problem and shouldn't be the first advice to try to address the issue.
  12. 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
  13. Note that basic stage3 is up. GNOME stage is being worked on.
  14. Now that the Sabayon collaboration has been announced, yes, it does open up the possibility that Funtoo might provide binaries in the future. It is not a high priority at the moment but I could see this eventually being added to what Funtoo offers.
  15. @davidvs If there is a package in Gentoo that you want in Funtoo, you can open a bug for it explaining why you would like it and we can most likely add it. This is the easiest way rather than messing with getting it working yourself.
