  1. I'll take a look at the bug and see if eglplatform.h is in the right place or not.
  2. Frankly I am not sure. Probably what I would do is emerge liberation-fonts, and then see if the problem goes away. Then emerge another font set if that doesn't solve it, see if that fixes it. It is probably a very common font set and I'd bet it's liberation-fonts. I don't think strace will show you what you want. There is already a catalog of fonts, and I don't think it's going to try to do any IO to load the font it needs. It will just look in the catalog and see it's not available.
  3. @walterw you have found a legitimate bug. I have seen this issue as well but have not fixed it yet. My guess is that it is caused by GNOME missing a font set like Liberation Fonts which it uses by default. So I believe the ultimate solution is to conclusively determine what font is missing and then add this as a dependency of the terminal app and/or GNOME itself. I believe that is a correct fix. What you have done -- while it works -- is a workaround. It should just work by default, with no workaround required.
  4. Also, remember to rebuild your nvidia-kernel-modules after building the new kernel so the new nvidia kernel modules for the kernel are available prior to reboot.
  5. You should look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log or /var/log/gdm/greeter.log for specifics to start the troubleshooting process.
  6. To directly answer your question: Upgrade to the latest debian-sources-lts-4.19.67_p2-r1. It is compatible with these drivers. I am using this exact combination here:
  7. This is the discussion thread for the announcement: Post any questions or discussion here.
  8. Hey Everyone, We're now supporting Discord as an official Funtoo online community. Join via this link: https://discord.gg/BNUSpUU Forums discussion thread for this announcement here: Best, Daniel
  9. Two mobile phone apps that I like related to secure communications are: Signal and Telegram. Signal is designed to be a text message replacement (you can use it as your default text messaging app in Android, and upgrade certain conversations to secure) whereas Telegram is more like a better Google Hangouts.
  10. @stamasd I've made some changes to the upgrade docs at https://www.funtoo.org/Upgrade_Instructions/1.4-release#World_Update This should hopefully make things go more smoothly.
  11. @stamasd Yes, we should do that as this issue has impacted lots of users. I will look at doing that now, can you review my changes after I make them? I also saw you on freenode (but missed you) regarding radeon support. For that, please if you can file a bug with details so I can see in more detail what's going on.
  12. I tend to agree. Maybe we mask the other kernels that frankly most users never touch. But it seems best to keep gentoo-sources unmasked, but maybe add a warning to it. WIll see if I can modify an eclass to do this.
  13. @tux yes LXD has its limitations compared to OpenVZ -- I still miss OpenVZ a lot. But LXD is gradually improving. I have plans to offer a lot more to users with hosting and I am hoping to actually realize these plans in a month or so -- let's see if things go as planned 🙂 (Note: it should help with this issue.)
  14. @tux @hhhhardware I am open to auto-updating gentoo-sources (maybe masked by default). Submit a bug report and I'll see what I can do.
  15. @lefsha Funtoo *does* include ALL ebuilds from Gentoo -- I think it is just a matter of trying to understand the difference between Funtoo and Gentoo. Funtoo Linux 1.4 is based on a 21 Jun 2019 snapshot of Gentoo Linux, plus a variety of package updates in selected areas. Such as: GNOME 3.32, gcc 9.2.0 default, latest mesa, libglvnd enabled by default, Debian kernels, nginx, mariadb, other server packages, etc, etc. updated by me as well as Funtoo Users. So think "Funtoo = Gentoo snapshot + goodies." In general, you should have everything in Gentoo automatically, at least what was in
  16. You're definitely capable. And you can always ask questions -- but try first!
  17. One thing I'd like to say is that our official 1.4 release was on Sept 11th, and it's Sept 24th and a TON of stuff has been improved. Really impressive. Thanks to everyone who contributed!
  18. This is a discussion thread for this post: Announcement: 1.4 -- Even More New Stuff. Feel free to follow up with comments, stuff I might have forgotten to mention, etc.
  19. There has been a lot of updates to Funtoo Linux 1.4 since its release -- most of these not officially announced. So it would be a good idea to make an official announcement of many of them: SELinux Updates Firefox and Firefox-bin 69, updated thunderbird. New gfxcard-nvidia-legacy mix-in for older drivers. Updated NVIDIA drivers to latest releases. Conky updated. kde-plasma merge fixes. mesa merge fixes and version bump. ffpmeg updated to latest release, with fixes for arm-64bit. Latest Spotify release added. Openrc net-online major
  20. Hey All, I've gone ahead and updated Funtoo Linux 1.4 to contain the latest implementation of SELinux from Gentoo. SELinux is working well under Funtoo now. To use it, see the SELinux page on the Funtoo wiki. Also reference the https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/SELinux/Installation and https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/SELinux pages for documentation reference. These Gentoo wiki pages were originally put together by SwiFT and are excellent, and the SELinux team has kept them up-to-date (I must give credit where credit is due 🙂. We need to work on our modest SELinux wiki page here to improve it: ht
  21. OK, I cleaned up this mess. No more static stuff should need to be manually turned on now. Here is a summary of the changes I made: cryptsetup now has USE static turned off by default genkernel now has cryptsetup turned off by default new encrypted-root mix-in to enable when you want LUKS that will flip all the necessary switches
  22. I am adding an encrypted-root mix-in and undoing the previous change that required a ton of stuff to be static. Sorry about that -- that was an ugly mess. I forgot that making cryptsetup static would make all of its dependencies also need to be static.
  23. @klipkyle yeah, that's not good, my mistake. I will look into a solution.
