drobbins reacted to Oleg Vinichenko in Udev Update
As per http://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-986 Funtoo now updating udev (eudev). This update require manual intervention, here are the steps after tree update (emerge --sync)
# emerge --sync
# emerge --deselect udev
# emerge virtual/udev
# dispatch-conf or etc-update (be careful)
# emerge @preserved-rebuild
Reboot. keep a systemrescue cd near in case of uncertain troubles. There're numerous packages forked in Funtoo tree to prevent udev updates. These whould need update or unfork, all emerge output should be directed to relevant bug report, see above link and on Funtoo IRC #funtoo channel, nick angry_vincent.
drobbins got a reaction from mitzip in Fundraising on kickstarter
I appreciate this suggestion. It is something I've thought of too. I think it would require a very detailed plan of action and set of deliverables. Right now, this isn't a great time to do that. But after I get some other things done, who knows, maybe it should be considered seriously.
drobbins got a reaction from mitzip in IMPORTANT: iptables firewalls in containers
Some people are trying to set up iptables firewalls in their containers, and they are unexpectedly locking themselves out of their containers.
The reason why this is happening is because stateful connection tracking is disabled by default in OpenVZ inside a container, and I need to manually enable it. So rules that track the state of connection (NEW, ESTABLISHED, RELATED), will not work, and then typically you will lose ssh access to your container.
The solution (for now) is to contact me directly and have me enable stateful connection tracking if you plan to deploy a firewall, so that these rules will work for you.
drobbins got a reaction from mitzip in Funtoo news RSS/Atom feed
The new forums do have blogging capabilities that I plan to take advantage of. Users can create their own blogs, and we can also have official Funtoo blogs. I plan to leverage the forums more for announcements than we have in the past. So the forums are probably where you're going to be hooking into an RSS/Atom feed for Funtoo :)
