    drobbins got a reaction from eyesee in Funtoo release model   
    We are not doing rolling release for the following reasons:
    Too much time is spent on fixing various breakages coming in from Gentoo, which takes time away from other things... other things are more important such as new technology like fchroot and the upcoming containerization solution... If users are interested in certain packages being updated, I am encouraging them to submit a pull request and maintain these ebuilds themselves, so I am going to focus on helping YOU maintain ebuilds rather than have a few people (this has generally been Oleg) maintaining them for everyone. This model doesn't scale -- we all need to do a little bit rather than a few people doing a lot. See the YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKmOY6p3c9hxv3vJMAF8vVw for tutorials Short-term, this means development slows down. But in reality, it will speed up development greatly. For those hanging out on IRC, you know that Oleg who has helped to maintain Funtoo for years has moved on to a new chapter in his life, so he is no longer active on Funtoo. But even though I am not slaving away over here, thanks to incoming pull requests Funtoo is continuing to move forward and be responsive to user needs.
    So think of it as a course correction as we become more agile and community-oriented, and be part of the solution. If you are reading this, it means you are part of the Funtoo community and just as able to contribute to Funtoo as anyone else (maybe with some tutorials/videos to help).
    When I work on technologies, I am trying more to work on key tools that help the community be more productive (like fchroot) rather than focusing on specific ebuilds, which I am leaving to the community to manage using pull requests.

    drobbins got a reaction from lostin8 in Announcing fchroot - QEMU-based chroot tool!   
    Hey Everyone,
    I want to officially announce 'fchroot', Funtoo's new QEMU-based chroot tool which allows you to chroot into ARM stage3's and live systems using your 64-bit PC. It is pretty neat stuff. Check out this video for a demo:
    Enjoy ?

    drobbins got a reaction from AdiosKid in New debian-sources-lts kernel with new Intel ethernet support   
    Hey Everyone,
    I've gone ahead and patched debian-sources-lts so that we have support for the latest Intel e1000e Ethernet chipsets. I ported an updated driver from 4.20/5.x into the new 4.9.144_p3-r1 ebuild. My Intel Core i7 8700-based system is now happily using its on-board Ethernet rather than needing a USB-based Ethernet dongle.
    Enjoy the kernel and also be sure to report any hardware compatibility issues that may be impacting you and preventing you from using debian-sources-lts to bugs.funtoo.org. I can always look into porting updated drivers to get this kernel working better for you.
    Best,

    drobbins got a reaction from AdiosKid in funtoo 1.3 arm-32bit and arm-64bit builds now available   
    Everyone,
    arm-32bit and arm-64bit builds of Funtoo Linux 1.3 are now available. Search for "arm" on this page using the search field right above the table to see them:
    https://www.funtoo.org/Subarches
    Enjoy. Also note that we could use some help with updating install docs for raspberry pis as well as odroid-xu4, which I hear now should run fine with our debian-sources-lts? If you look at our odroid-xu4 page here, you'll see that at the top we link to an install guide specific to this board. I'd like to have docs like this for all the raspis as well:
