  1. Kernel configuration (that i'd always used) in a new installation of Funtoo 1.4 hang at boot: the system freeze after message "random: fast init done". To solve it i must use initramfs

    The same kernel configuration work well (without initramfs) in any other installation of Funtoo/Gentoo: for example, in my old installation of Funtoo, updated to 1.4 release, the kernel normally boot without initramfs.

    I search on web but i don't find what's the problem.

  2. This is the emerge log: 

    * Fetching https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linux-driver ...
    git fetch https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linux-driver +refs/heads/realtek-4.4.x:refs/heads/realtek-4.4.x

    I repeat: in Gentoo this ebuild works perfectly.

    I think the correct URL would be:


        URIs to the repository, e.g. https://foo. If multiple URIs are provided, the eclass will consider the remaining URIs as fallbacks to try if the first URI does not work. For supported URI syntaxes, read the manpage for git-clone(1).
        URIs should be using https:// whenever possible. http:// and git:// URIs are completely unsecured and their use (even if only as a fallback) renders the ebuild completely vulnerable to MITM attacks.
        Can be a whitespace-separated list or an array.
        EGIT_REPO_URI="https://a/b.git https://c/d.git"

    No, I try your solution but the problem is the same.

    I repeat, in Gentoo my ebuild work.

  4. I have an ebuild for the rtl8192eu, stored in my local overlay. This is the code:

    # Copyright 1999-2015 Gentoo Foundation
    # Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
    # $Header: /var/cvsroot/gentoo-x86/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers/nvidia-drivers-173.14.39.ebuild,v 1.10 2015/05/30 12:30:31 jer Exp $
    inherit linux-mod git-r3
    DESCRIPTION="rtl8192eu driver"
    DEPEND=" "
    BUILD_TARGETS="clean modules"

    This ebuild works on Gentoo, but not in the new version 1.3 and 1.4 of Funtoo.

    The error message says that " ... cannot fetch the EGIT_REPO_URI"

    FWIW, upgrade to conky is held back because of lua version. Latest conky wants lua-5.3 while 1.3-release uses lua 5.1.x

    As you pointed out...this isn't a rolling release. This is that cost/benefit of rolling release vs stable release as you allude to.

    the point is: why add conky new version if it isn't installable? It is better not to add it or add lua new version too.

    If you decide to choice release model instead rolling model, i think that is better "first maintain stable version and then develop the new".

    At present, it seems that "first develop new version, then maintain the current stable version".



  6. ... and i add: 1.3 version is actually fully supported? 

    I think that a stable version (instead a rolling release) can be a good idea, but it must to be fully manteined and long term supported. Debian model is good, for example. 

    At present 1.3 release seems to be forgotten. For example: why add a new version of "conky" to repository without dependances? 

    And security update?




  7. From many time i can't update conky from the installed version 1.11.1 to the updated 1.11.3.

    There is this configuration error:

    Checking for one of the modules 'lua>=5.3;lua5.3;lua-5.3;lua53;lua5.2;lua-5.2;lua52'
    CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:659 (message):
      None of the required 'lua>=5.3;lua5.3;lua-5.3;lua53;lua5.2;lua-5.2;lua52'

    I don't know what to do.

  8. I've installed Funtoo Current to try it again, because stable version is now deprecated.

    I have some problems with Xfce desktop:

    1) The desktop icons appears with an horrible white background text labels; the file .gtkrc-2.0 to enable transparent label text background as no effect

    2) The xfce4-places-plugins crashes;

    3) Lightdm don't remember last user; every time i must digit my username


    With other my old Funtoo (stable)/Gentoo Xfce installations i don't have these problems.


    can anyone help me?
