  1. I can provide a container in a few days when I resolve some issues with our new datacenter.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Yep, I have. GNOME 3.30 merges fine as does KDE Plasma. It will go smoothly. And yep, it was uploaded then.
  7. If you want to install 1.3, use a more recent stage3 -- like 2018-12-12 for Haswell has been available since about 12-12 (look in "1.3-release-std"). If your stage3 has 32-bit libs, it is too old. You should have done a full-stop at that point and grabbed a newer one. Also follow instructions here: https://www.funtoo.org/Upgrade_Instructions/1.3-release Uh -- edit. If you are using a NEW 1.3 stage3 as I suggested, you shouldn't need any upgrade steps. Just follow our install docs! ?
  8. It was something we added when merging profiles. x86-64bit-papa shouldn't be used by anyone.
  9. Glad to hear @mantas -- we hope to get 1.3 released officially in another week. Still a lot of issues to fix which you'll get automatically via updates.
  10. OK, I think you found a bug in the empathy build. You can use --exclude empathy for now and we can revisit that one later. Please report this bug to bugs.funtoo.org.
  11. All righty, and what's the output of "emerge -av enchant" ? (you don't need to actually merge it, just want to see what's installed and if it wants to install an update)
  12. And you currently have release = 1.3 in /etc/ego.conf and no hard-coded kits settings in /etc/ego.conf? And you've done an ego sync?
  13. OK, you should definitely set a subarch, but that is an unrelated issue.
  14. Show me the output of "epro show" -- do you have the gnome mix-in enabled? We masked newer versions of enchant because I believe they break some builds. But it may only be active when you have the gnome mix-in enabled which I am guessing you do not. Maybe we should expand the mask to be global for all users.
  15. Ah, gotcha. The upgrade is just too complicated right now.... I have some containers that got stuck in that state. We're workin' on it! ?
  16. Yep, I hit this too and it should be resolved now. I also made a few more tweaks to gnome mix-in USE for 3.30-prime to enable more features in nautilus (like network support, afs, samba, etc.)
  17. I am not sure since I have not played with OpenStack recently, but if it is possible to import an AMI, then yes, in theory it should work. It may also be able to use lxd/lxc with OpenStack in which case you can import one of our lxd container images which we build for some subarches.
  18. Be sure to look at the 1.3 upgrade guide. We have some sed tweaks to do on the /var/db/pkg package database to get rid of abi_86_32/64 USE deps. Basically these USE deps can be removed as they are deprecated in Funtoo. Also you encountered an issue with xorg-proto. In the 1.3-upgrade docs, we tell you to manually unmerge xorg-server, which should resolve this ? So like I said, you sort of need to combine the 1.2 and 1.3 upgrade steps. ?
  19. One thing to note about mysql-community -- These builds are the OFFICIAL mysql. Some people prefer these to mariadb as being more production-ready. They also have some improved features when it comes with security.
  20. One of the things I am pushing for is for Portage to grab any installed conflicting packages and add them to the package set automatically, before backtracking at all. This is likely going to resolve the majority of conflicts automatically. The upstream gentoo bug for this feature is https://bugs.gentoo.org/559354 <-- and I am thinking of something like an --expand option that will auto-add installed packages that conflict to the set of packages to be rebuilt, so users don't have to. If you think this would be a good idea, you may want to comment on the upstream bug and this may result in it being prioritized.
  21. Cool. This is the big reason we are working on having official upgrade docs. The upgrade process for Gentoo is left as "an exercise for the reader" and has gotten too complicated. As we have official versioned releases and attempt to write upgrade docs, we'll get better and better at it and gradually streamline the process. We've also started engaging with upstream Gentoo portage developers to look at ways that emerge can be improved to not throw so many conflicts.
  22. I think you should try adding the --deep option. All the deps on glib should be satisfiable by the new glib. You should not be needing 2.48.2.
  23. Yeah, the first output looked close, try adding --ignore-world which you forgot to.
  24. Yep, do the merge -- that gets things one step closer to done :)
