  1. Yep, do the merge -- that gets things one step closer to done :)
  2. I recommend using the 1.3-upgrade docs but sort of combine them with the 1.2-upgrade docs for best results. When having conflicts, try --ignore-world to see if that resolves them. You can also add any "(installed)" packages in the conflict listing to the end of the emerge command-line which will force them to rebuild and often resolves the conflict.
  3. If login is rejecting you, you will need to use authy to upgrade your account -- go to https://auth.funtoo.org/login and go through that. It should prompt you to upgrade your account. If you are not willing or able to use SMS to validate your account, you can find us on IRC and get us to manually validate your account. Oleg (angry_vincent), biberao and me will be able to help you there (other guys will have the ability to do this tomorrow)...
  4. Upgrade instructions are here: https://www.funtoo.org/Upgrade_Instructions/1.3-release
  5. I've seen this recently as well - I will be looking into it. In the mean time, please open a bug on bugs.funtoo.org if you haven't already.
  6. Hi All, Within 12 hours, I plan to move 1.3-release to BETA status. Along with this comes the very important change on 64-bit platforms -- I am removing multilib and making "pure64" compatibility the default. This means that 1.3-release builds with the x86-64bit arch will be 64-bit only. This is done for a variety of reasons, most important of which is that the world has had a 64-bit PC instruction set for approximately 15 years. It is time to drop 32-bit support. For those who still need 32-bit support, it will be available via a Funtoo 32-bit chroot setup. The story behind multilib is rather complex and interesting, and might be the focus of a future blog post, but for now, you will just have to trust me -- multilib support in Gentoo is a pain in the butt. It takes a lot of effort to work with and slows us down. Our efforts are best spent in other places, and chroot should work for the vast majority of users who truly are running a critical 32-bit application (other options are 32-bit containers, etc.) EDIT: Upgrade Instructions Here: https://www.funtoo.org/Upgrade_Instructions/1.3-release Best, Daniel
  7. @nrc question answered -- https://www.funtoo.org/FAQ:What_Are_Funtoo_Kits
  8. Hi Everyone, I'm very happy to announce that we are now offering official Funtoo AWS images in the AWS Marketplace: https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B07KT3VN7Q/ Please test them out. They are optimized for specific instance types to offer the best performance possible in AWS. Please leave us a positive review (or file a bug ? ) and take advantage of these free images to Funtoo-ize AWS and advance the benefits of building software from source, optimized for the underlying CPU architecture -- Funtoo style! Best, Daniel
  9. Hey, so I think no one is really telling you the obvious -- you found a small bug, and I'm going to fix it with a commit to the profiles so that pclmul is added to CPU_FLAGS_X86 for skylake and skylake-avx512. ?
  10. Hello Everyone -- I want to highlight some improvements that have been made to the wiki besides our new FAQ (https://www.funtoo.org/FAQ) We now have a new Subarches page that is a lot easier to navigate: https://www.funtoo.org/Subarches And the look of various things like notes, tips, warnings, etc. have been improved for a cleaner, more consistent look. This is a good sample page to browse the new look. Note that you may need to "hard reload" the page to get the new CSS: https://www.funtoo.org/Upgrade_Instructions Enjoy! -Daniel
  11. @seaofash sorry you are having problems -- you can reach me on freenode IRC in #funtoo and we can figure out what's going on. Thanks!
  12. Hey Everyone, We have a new FAQ developed that allows you to more easily browse answers. See: https://www.funtoo.org/FAQ You can also submit your own FAQ questions which I will answer! ? Hope you enjoy it. Best, Daniel
  13. Hey Everyone, We are starting to build Funtoo Linux 1.3 ALPHA builds. We will let you know when these are uploaded and ready for testing. UPDATE: Ryzen 1.3 Alpha builds now available for download and testing: https://build.funtoo.org/1.3-release-std/x86-64bit/amd64-zen/ -Daniel
  14. Also note that I will be helping with this new distribution because I think it is very much needed and wanted by the user community.
  15. Hey all, We are about to switch Release 1.2 to use debian-sources-lts as the default kernel. What this means is that on stage3's, you will soon be greeted with debian-sources-lts pre-built instead of the regular debian-sources. This may be surprising to you because you will notice that on new installs, you won't have a 4.14+ kernel but an earlier one. But there is a good reason for this, as I'll explain. Many of you know that "debian-sources-lts" is Debian's "long term stable" kernel, and is based on the 4.9 series. I know, I know... some of you might not like this choice, particularly if you are used to running a more recent kernel. I'll remind those who are in this camp that as always, Funtoo supports running whatever kernel you like -- we're simply changing our default. From our perspective, the benefits of this change are numerous. First, Debian's "LTS" kernel is considered to be production-ready for servers and is kept up-to-date with the latest Spectre and Meltdown mitigations. This by itself is a good reason for us to switch. Other nice things are that because it is a 'stable' kernel, we can expect good driver compatibility with things like nivida-drivers, so it should reduce breakage experienced by third-party modules. It's also the kernel we use ourselves for production servers, so we simply pay more attention to it overall than the regular debian-sources. It's always best if the kernel we ship to you is the one we use ourselves, as it gets the most testing and validation.
  16. I would say you should work on an English translation of the site so the project is also open to English-speaking users. It should be a full international project.
  17. Well, thank you for your work and for basing it on Funtoo. Please keep the project moving forward and let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Best, Daniel
  18. Hey, can you send me a logo graphic and I'll add an announcement about it to the main Funtoo page? Thanks.
  19. Hi All, As we move to our third-generation infrastructure, I am currently migrating containers to BTRFS+SSD (from ZFS and HDD+Optane) which may result in up to an hour of downtime, especially if you have a lot of data stored in your containers. But the result will be much, much, much faster IO. So if you have seen your uptime on your container change recently, this is why. Best, Daniel
  20. There is nothing wrong with some branches having "detached head". You will see this when there has been a recent update to our 1.3 development branch. If you see this at the end: Sync successful and kits in alignment! :) Then it means things are OK.
  21. I believe the root cause of this is that we used different snapshot dates for various parts of 1.2. We are getting away from this with 1.3, so it should go away with 1.3 when it is released. We'll use a unified snapshot for that release. However, these issues should be fixed in 1.2 when found, if possible. If you can point out bugs that you feel were improperly closed without being correctly addressed, I can investigate.
  22. As Funtoo matures, we keep evolving our own infrastructure. This is the infrastructure we use for user containers as well. Progress on this is going well. All of Funtoo (www, forums, bugs, auth) is now hosted on this brand-new infrastructure and performance of all the funtoo sites now appears to be very very good. We did initially have some issues we were experiencing with ZFS so we are now using another approach which will be detailed in future docs, and it is running much better. Soon, we will be launching new things related to funtoo hosting in regards to the new infrastructure. Much more automation, rather than having to send us an email to get things done. Some surprises -- and that's one of the reasons why we added authy integration to the funtoo logins -- because they will be used to manage your containers in the future so we want to have more sophisticated security capabilities. Best, Daniel
