    j-g- got a reaction from kryptus in Some artwork for Funtoo (Wallpapers)   
    Hello funtooers, I have noticed the lack of Funtoo artwork in general, so I took some time to play around with blender and Inkscape to make some wallpapers(7).
     
    In a search for  a base image, I only encountered a small banner with the Funtoo logo, so I did a re-vectorization, and some slight line chages, and this is the outcome, the wallpapers are mostly minimalistic, Also link to a tar.xz with sources (.blend .svg) and pack png of renders in 1920x1080px, I encourage you to play around with the sources and post your results in this thread.

    j-g- got a reaction from tmp-meteque in /boot doesn't mount but uefi works   
    It doesn't mount automatically because you configured it to not mount automatically:
     
    UUID="2B00-F65A" /boot vfat noauto,defaults 1 2 the option 'noauto', means to not mount automatically that partition, but since you have it /etc/fstab, you can quickly manually mount it by simple running:
     
    $ sudo mount /boot If you want it automatically mounted,  just  delete 'noauto'.

    j-g- got a reaction from Sandro in Switching from current to stable   
    Packages are stablilized in gentoo by changing the keyword form '~arch' to 'arch', e.g. if the ebuild has in KEYWORDS "~amd64" it means the ebuild is not stable, if it has "amd64" it has been stabilized.

    I remember a question like this was posted some years ago on gentoo's user ML, it is not trivial to do this, basically the advice was: make the change, and wait for stable to catch up, using package.accept_keywords to restrict new versions for your packages from world already installed(and maybe some deps ), this will take a few months. here's a link to the thread from the mailing list[1].

    I'd say also that once @system has catched up with unstable you could try 'emerge -e @world'

    You can do the same 'trick' in any linux distro with feh -F , you just need a screenshot in full-screen, and you can fool any regular end user.

    Don't waste your time in stuff like that, better recommend a easy to use linux distro to that poor windows user.

    j-g- got a reaction from duncan.britton in Offline updates - is it possible?   
    You can create a chroot on a computer that has internet, and configure it as if it were the ofline system, and use binary packages built in the chroot, only try to keep the cpu options generic at first(you can tweak as you go later), you can then build there and only install the binary packages on the offiline system.
    You only need to set PKGDIR, PORTDIR, DISTDIR in make.conf, and use a flash drive mounted in  e.g. /media/funtoo/ containing a copy of your world file  and the the directories {packages,portage,distfiles,config}, set the  variables pointing to these, the same on the chroot as the offilne system, create a git repo of /etc/portage/ and commit every change you need to make to the files inside there, this is the 'config' directory inside /media/funtoo, and git push and pull  using that directory.
    Alternatively, you can setup a simple lan with a network cable or via ad-hoc wifi, and use the guide for binary packages.
    The key is to have a portage snapshot, a valid configuration (/etc/portage), and the set of packages built for that configuration, this way you can make portage resolve the same build in the chroot as the off-line system.
     
    As the target system is off-line, you can upgrade it every 1~2 months, as it is an off-line system you don't have to worry much about security.
    the manuals make.conf(5) and portage(5) have more info on the details.

    j-g- got a reaction from cardinal in im new with funtoo where is the package j4-dmenu-desktop?   
    It is not on the tree, but the upstream git page has instructions for installation in gentoo(you can apply those to funtoo) from a greek overlay, but you'll need to learn about layman and overlays (non official repos), package.accept_keywords and live ebuilds(versions 9999* basically fresh from git). start by installing layman also you should check eix(emerge eix) to search for packages, nobody really uses emerge --search(too slow).

    If you will try to install it, I advice you, when using overlays, be aware the quality of the ebuilds might not be as good as the main repo, the ebuilds might be unmaintained. But that shouldn't stop you, just check the overlay is being maintained, and if you use live ebuilds, that means you can report any problem you have directly to upstream because you are building their latest code.

    j-g- got a reaction from linuxbigot in debian-sources for...   
    Sure is doable and is really easy, as installing any other kernel sources, just try putting the ebuild in your local overlay. or adding the funtoo overlay with a lower priority than ::gentoo on repos.conf, and emerging the sources, is not like a kernel has any runtime dependencies right? it is the runtime dependency to start a user space. I have never used debian-sources but I looked at the ebuild and I saw nothing there that could make it not work on gentoo, but I don't feel like trying I don't like debian-sources.

    Your problem is you don't want to read documentation, you just want the 'magic commands' given to you, some in this thread have tried to help you, but you either ignore or don't give the information requested appropriately,
     
     
    You make it possible by not reading documentation, and clearly having little idea of what you are doing.

     
     
    This kind of un-polite request won't get you any much help.
     

    Not following advice and the issuing random commands as root wont get you anywere, there's no point in executing synclient if you are not inside an X session,  you haven't even posted your .xinitrc or what desktop enviroment or window manager you are trying to start, and you seem to be doing everything as root, why are you installing X if you haven't even created a user, if you follow the install guide you should have  your own user before even be thinking of a graphical environment.
    Also that uname  and the snippet of kernel configuration you posted makes me think you might be running this from a chroot, are you?

    Read the documentation before asking, and make good questions, not just ' under startx, after a new install ', without giving information about your system and logs, 'under startx' doesn't even makes sense. If you want help one shouldn't be doing heuristics to figure out what's really happening on your system.

    The amount of threads asking for help you have posted to this forum just for getting your first install done, tells you don't have the knowledge of a linux system, required to maintain a source based distro,  you should try learn first using a vm or spare hardware(for a source based distro at least have 2 cores and 2GB of ram with swap), take your time to learn about the linux base system, and then you can run funtoo or gentoo as a server or workstation, if you don't have the experience to quickly trouble-shoot simple problems like the ones you have posted any source-based distro will  just be maintainace pain for you, the packages in gentoo and funtoo are very vanilla, and many packages require configuration to work properly after install( that's not saying they won't work).
     
    I've read in this forums funtoo can be a distro for noobs, but I strongly disagree, just learning basic shell, file system concepts and hierarchy might take a day for some people, and that desn't cover 'basic unix', so if you are a noob unless you have a week and lot's of time to read, you wont be able to make a proper installation of gentoo or funtoo, you might get something working by just coping commands from the install guide but that will soon become a nightmare to maintain.

    try "emerge chromium"  or libreoffice that will give you an idea about how much ram/cpu you might need just for compilation. You are already having trouble with this, and don't seem to get it, make the connection between your previous topic and this one. I bet anyone with some months using gentoo/funtoo knew RAM was the issue when one webkit was in the topic.

    j-g- got a reaction from Deklan? in Systemd   
    The flamewar was already started, and the tread was deviated(I even read a bit of a wayland rant) from the intent of the OP many posts before mine, contrary to your experience I've seen many times help given on the gentoo mailing list to people that want to try it, and lots of patience, It's a shame you didn't asked the right people, but if you go anywhere with the argument 'Theres no documentation' when there is and its even local, it's likely the one who took the effort to read and grasp the manuals(and don't say most manuals are easy, look at bash), might get unfriendly, because you don't want to put any effort, remember asking for help in the open source it's taking someone time for free, so an extra effort is required, to show appreciation of the time given to you.

    j-g- got a reaction from Deklan? in Systemd   
    I've mentioned this here a few times, I use systemd with Funtoo(Or should I say NotFuntoo since drobbins says Funtoo is only Funtoo with OpenRC), I would have bothered to do what l33tlinuxh4x0r did, and post a guide and even an overlay, but I anticipated a flamewar like this, for no reason, anyway getting systemd to run isn't that hard, and any competent user would figure out the changes needed.
    Many of you seem to know little about systemd, or can't read manuals(Undocumented?), and yet have big opinions on it, anyway this this has shown to be the tendency in among most of the systemd detractors. I understand devs don't want the burden of having to deal with bugs related to a software they dislike, but certainly It isn't attractive either to try to contribute for the few of us who like it, when any intent would turn into a flame war.

    So far my experience has been, you can use /usr/local/portage, or an overlay of your own, I would recommend the overlay, since you can make changes to it as normal user. there's an skeleton overlay uploaded for funtoo in github, you can start from that.
     
    Make the directory structure for the package you wan to test in your overlay dir:

    $ mkdir -p ${OVERLAY_DIR}/cat/pkg/ # Edit your ebuild: $ $EDITOR ${OVERLAY_DIR}/cat/pkg/pkg-0.0.ebuild # generate a Manifest $ ebuild ${OVERLAY_DIR}/cat/pkg/pkg-0.0.ebuild manifest Add your overlay via making a overlay.xml file in /etc/layman/overlays/ (this is documented in the layman manual) or adding to your make.conf
    PORTDIR_OVERLAY="${PORTDIR_OVERLAY} $YOUR_OVERLAY_DIR" If you don't have the package installed already or are adding new dependencies you can do:
    $ sudo emerge --onlydeps '=cat/pkg-0.0' and then you can test your ebuild step by step using the 'ebuild' command, I try before merging anything I edit, generating a package, this means all the build process is made except actually getting the package in your filesystem, you can inspect the tarball generated to see everything looks right and then merge.
    $ sudo ebuild ${OVERLAY_DIR}/cat/pkg/pkg-0.0.ebuild package That said you should read first and mainly refer to the gentoo dev documentation.[1] or 'emerge -av devmanual'

    Lets clear out some misunderstandings, first there's no such thing as USE="~amd64", ~amd64 is an architecture keyword not an use flag. second I don't think it is that simple as USE="multilib" and emerge again, if you want to use multilib you need a compiler that supports multilib, or so far this has been my understanding regarding this topic, and because of "USE=(multilib)" which means multilib use flag is masked, my guess is OP used a pure64 stage3, I don't know if there's an 'easy and just works' way to switch from pure64 to multilib, so it's likely a reinstall would be less work.
