  1. About INPUT_DEVICES variable.

    It could be a remnant of an earlier "build" or be pulled in by some other package. This output shows that xorg-drivers should not the responsible for installing synaptics but maybe another package. For that use the command @Otakku provided. And for synaptics being a remnant you could use the command 'emerge -pv --depclean'. If synaptics shows up in the output, that would be a good indication for that.
  2. How to override default packages

    I think that the use of meta packages in funtoo is more elegant than that. Have a look at the output of 'emerge -s meta' and the ebuilds for those packages.
  3. About INPUT_DEVICES variable.

    Does that mean that you found the reason? If yes, what was the problem?
  4. About INPUT_DEVICES variable.

    What is the output of 'equery u xorg-drivers' ?
  5. Can't boot with LiveUSB

    Have you checked on the LiveUSB with the installed distro? Does the LiveUSB look OK (can you access the image and is the partition on the LiveUSB bootable)?
  6. diffutils-3.5 compile failure

    If you want us to help, it would be really helpful to see the error messages. Also, guessing from the version numbers for the packages it seems that you haven't switched to the 1.2 release yet, as you would be using diffutils-3.6 and mysql-connector-c-6.1.11 then.
  7. Hi bluephoenix, as I haven't used debian sources I can only guess on that part and others are more qualified to answer that part. But let me take a try answering your questions: 1.- I haven't measured the time it takes to compile the kernel yet but, if you want, you could do that by using the 'time' command. In general I would say that the time it takes to compile depends upon the number of features that are activated for each kernel. If the debian kernel generally uses more features it could take longer. 2.- I don't use boot-update, so I can't answer that part. I normally just use make, make install, make modules_install and then manually update grub.cfg 3. That is a good question. As far as I know genkernel, I see no benefit for me in using it. 4.- Fine tuning a kernel normally does not require a total recompilation of the kernel. If you run make, and have not cleaned up the kernel directories, it just compiles the parts that are affected by your config changes.
  8. The problem could be the kernel or the driver (besides something else). Have a look at https://www.funtoo.org/Package:Radeon_Video_Drivers to see if it helps.
  9. The bug report is marked as closed but the task not finished yet, as you can see by the comments in the bug. It still needs some work:
  10. Getting newer mesa version?

    Current version for 1.2 should be mesa-17.2.8 and, if the time stamp is correct, that version was added 5 months ago (about 2 months after the official release). There are already requests for an update of mesa: https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-5183 https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-5154 So I would say that they are just a bit behind.
  11. why do we need pam?

    So the question would be: What takes preference: The entry in the profile or the one in make.conf? To me it seems that for packages the setting in make.conf is the one. But for update world the one in the profile, thus wanting to add pam to the system, although no package needs it.
  12. I'm not able to emerge world.

    I would guess that the system wants to enable the USE flag curl_ssl_nss for the package curl because the USE flag nss is set for the package liboauth. I get the same error when I want to reinstall liboauth. It seems that ths USE flag nss got activated by the system lately. There are not many packages that use the USE flag nss. So, if you don't need this USE flag then you could deactivate it globally or for liboauth only and you should be fine.
  13. make 4.2* parallel issue on funtoo 1.2

    I don't see such behaviour (in top or htop) but maybe I just don't know what to look for. Can you give an example how to spot if make behaves normal or not?
  14. There is no need to upgrade the python-kit, if you don't want to. All you need to do is unmask the python version you want to install. On my system I have : python-kit 3.4-prime /etc/portage/unmask =dev-lang/python-3.5.3 =dev-lang/python-3.6.1-r2
  15. Help me debug missing card reader

    What about "Device Drivers->MMC/SD/SDIO card support" ?
  16. emerge @preserved-rebuild trouble

    If you look closely, you see that this bug report is closed and marked as fixed. So you would need to open a new bug.
  17. [solved] emerge mariadb

    Any protocol with the reason for this error? There should be: There should also be a build log, as you are using emerge.
  18. emerge @preserved-rebuild trouble

    Exactly. And that is the reason why you should open a bug. The problem is not qca. It is that kdelibs requires exactly and only qt4 when the USE flag plasma is selected. If you file a bug, the developers can have a look at it and decide what to do.
  19. emerge @preserved-rebuild trouble

    If you really need qt4 support and can't live with only qt5, you should open a bug at http://bugs.funtoo.org
  20. ruby targets problem

    My guess would be that the packages compiled with ruby 2.2 are trying to pull in the old ruby version. On my system I only have ruby 2.4 enabled. But even if I want to activate ruby 2.2 it does not show. Could it be that ruby 2.2 is globally deactivated? I think that the above emerge would reemerge the "faulty" packages and get rid of the error messages.
  21. emerge @preserved-rebuild trouble

    Something is pulling in qt4 for qca. Do you normally use qt4 or qt5?
  22. Yes, it is tedious but so far the only way I know for solving those conflicts. I agree that it would be ideal if emerge would do these things alone but so far I haven't experienced that. Although, if I read bug https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-3491 correctly, it seems to already do that. Not sure if it is true or not though.
  23. >>> net-print/cups-filters-1.17.9:0/0::net-kit, installed, wants app-text/poppler:0/66= >>> media-gfx/gimp-2.8.22:2/2::media-kit, installed, wants >=app-text/poppler-0.12.4[cairo] My candidates are: >>> app-text/poppler-0.45.0:0/62::gnome-kit, ebuild scheduled for merge has SLOT 0/62 and IUSE cairo >>> app-text/poppler-0.52.0-r2:0/66::gnome-kit, installed has SLOT 0/66 and IUSE cairo It seems that the old gimp version is pulling in the old poppler version. In such cases it often helps to emerge the conflicting packages together. In this case e.g. emerge -pv cups-filters gimp The rest of the messages seem to have the same problem. Try to make the updates in steps. I would try to get a list of available updates at first. For that I would exclude problematic packages from emerge with --exclude until I have a list and then go through them manually. This helps to get the system up to date, especially if it hasn't been updated for a while.
  24. The output looks good (westmere but no aes). I suspect qt to be the problem. Should be visible in the build log.
  25. OK, your cpu does not support aes but some versions of qt and maybe gcc do not detect that correctly. So to ananlyze that further, could you post following information: - The output of: gcc -march=native -E -v - </dev/null 2>&1 | grep cc1 - The complete build log of vlc. /var/tmp/portage/media-video/vlc-2.2.6-r2/temp/build.log
