  1. Hello,

    I like the fact that Funto's firefox 57 is using alsa instead of pulseaudio.

    I would like to get rid of pulseaudio in other distros running firefox 57.

    What should I add/remove from mozconfig (I read that old option that removed pulseaudio and enabled alsa is not working)?

    Thank you

  2. I have set bidirectional clipboard sharing set up. However the setting does not work.

    Slackware is VM Host

    Funtoo is VM Guest.

    This setup worked before.

    The difference is that this time I have installed only VirtualBox Guest Additions in Funtoo. Previously, in addition to VirtualBox Guest Additions, I had installed in Funtoo Guest:

    VirtualBox (for Host ), VirtualBox Modules (for host) and VirtualBox Guest Additions.

    Do I need to install VirtualBox (for Host ), VirtualBox Modules (for host) in Funtoo?

    My other VirtualBox Guests (linux distros, FBSD and OpenIndiana) require only VirtualBox Guest Additions for full VM host/guest interoperability.

    Thank you.

  3. issuing

    emerge --with-bdeps=y @world kde-plasma/plasma-meta

    generates info about unmet requirements:

    The ebuild selected to satisfy "sys-apps/busybox" has unmet requirements.

    -sys-apps/busybox-1.26.2::core-kit USE="debug ipv6 livecd make-syslinks math mdev pam savedconfig sep-usr static syslog -selinux -systemd

    when I add these to make.conf script still complains about selinux?


    However, I don't want to install systemd, and it seems not possible to install busybox without systemd dependency

    so how can I avoid systemd and fix selinux dependency requirements


    Thank you for help.

  4. Uhm may be that i had the same trouble ... so i'm using "gdm" as login manager".

    I don't use gnome; I've installed xfce4-meta and kde-meta.

    # emerge gdm

    Then set in /etc/conf.d/xdm


    Then try to restart

    Thank you for the suggestion.

    I installed slim because it is small and without any particular dependencies so it should be safe in the future.

  5. Download:


    mv krita_3.1.2.1.orig.tar.gz krita-

    Move krita- to distfiles directory.

    thank you,

    moving to /var/git/meta-repo/kits/core-kit/distfiles/

    does not help...

    o.k.  fixed

    thank you again


    ...but got this error:


    /tmp/portage/media-gfx/krita-3.1.2-r2/work/krita- fatal error: QForeachContainer: No such file or directory

    compilation terminated.





    Couldn't download 'krita-'. Aborting.

    >>> Failed to emerge media-gfx/krita-3.1.2-r2,



    Evidently krita is not available how can I fix this error?


    Thank you

  7. Hello,

    I am not sure if this is right place (portage help subforum), so please free to move/remove my topic.


    Today I run an update and I missed warning about locked broken screen.

    Anway, at some point screen got locked with the message suggesting to login from another terminal and enter

    loginctl unlock-sessions


    however this is not recognized command (by consolekit).

    Thankfully I have found a solution at gennto forums:


    First, we have to determine which session is X11 session. To accomplish that, run
    # ck-list-sessions
    in any virtual terminal (e.g. using Ctrl+Alt+F2).
    One of sessions should contain x11-display property set - that session is possibly corresponding to a locked one:
    x11-display = ':0'

    Remember that session name ("Session1").
    Now run the following command as root from the virtual terminal (below su is used to obtain root privileges)
    # su -c 'dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest="org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit" /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Session1 org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Session.Unlock'
    Where you should replace Session1 with your session name obtained at the previous step using ck-list-sessions.
    After that you should be able to switch back to the running session (Ctrl+Alt+F7).


    this actually fixed problem with locked/broken screen.


    Maybe funtoo advice regarding



    loginctl unlock-sessions


    should be removed if not working?

    I don't know if any viable solution is possible but at least nobody will try to run invalid command.


    Thank you

  8. I've got the same problem. It's being caused by the softlink in /var/tmp/portage/dev-libs/libxml2-2.9.5 to the files directory which should exist at /var/git/meta-repo/kits/core-kit/dev-libs/libxml2/files.  


    /var/git/meta-repo/kits/core-kit/dev-libs/libxml2/files does not exist.


    ok I will wait for fix

    thank you,

  10. is wrong

    # eselect kernel list
    # eselect kernel set N

    eselect  kernel set N (Iwith N = the mumber associated at the kernel that you want to compile.




    For example you can change the "noauto" ....

    The last raw in /etc/fstab is for compile in RAM; but i've 16 GiB .... i don't know your Amount of memory :)

    Ciao :)

    Thank you for helping. Running portage in RAM is great idea (I do the same with CRUX compiling). I just did not know how much RAM I would need for portage. I run Funtoo as virtual guest and I can increase allowed RAM to 16GB.

  11. /boot is not automatically mounted by default but was by genkernel,

    will have to put mount point in fstab i think.

    or do a manual mount when needed.



    I just did not pay attention to noauto option in fstab!


    thank you,



    do you why eselect generates this error?

    eselect list kernel

  12. So would a high-powered laptop CPU like a Core i5-7300 HQ or Core i7-7700HQ be better suited for the job? (High GHz, Quad Core). Where would I use -j, and what does it do?


    If you can could you possibly reccomend a laptop good for Funtoo Linux that isn't over 2000 NZD (around 1500 USD) that would work well with KDE (if possible)

    it runs just fine without delays including system compilation with Plasma 5 (few hours) with less cpu power and RAM?/DISK? in comparison to your setup.


    My virtualbox host laptop (that hosts Funtoo) runs:

    Quad core Intel Core i7-4800MQ

    2x SSD = 1.5TB

    RAM: 32GB

    this let me run virtual host (linux) and virtual gusets (Funtoo, CRUX, BSDs, Windows) without issues.

    You do have better processor but you need enough RAM (not for just running guests but getting heavy tasks done (e.g in my case linux/BSD compilation, windows photo editing).

    If you do not plan to run cpu/RAM/disk heavy tasks then you don't need to max out RAM/disk of course and just leave system compiling overnight.


    edit: virtualbox

    with virtualbox host running Plasma and Funtoo running Plasma and running firefox system uses 3.5GB RAM total.

    In other words just running simple tasks under virtualbox does not require a lot of RAM. CPU is running at 1-2%.

  13. hello,

    my /boot

    is empty  and eselect list kernel is generating an error after installing gentoo-sources:

    # emerge gentoo-sources

    1. eselect list kernel

    !!! Error: Can't load module list
    2. eselect kernel set 2 (checked reflecting symlink linux -> linux-4.13.1-gentoo)
    4. make xconfig

    5. cp /usr/src/linux/.config /usr/src/linux/config
    6. make modules_prepare
    7. genkernel --kernel-config=/usr/src/linux/config all
    8. edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    9. reboot & pray


    After installing new kernel I was able to edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg because /boot was populated. However after reboot /boot is empty.

    Because Funtoo boots and boot menu reflects my changes then config files are hidden somewhere. However I would like to know where boot config files are located in the case of post boot changes that I would like to add. Unless there is another way of installing kernel and updating config files?


    thank you

  14. Hello,

    I received here great help with funtoo installation so I will try again:

    installation of kde-apps-meta fails at media-plugins/kipi-plugins-5.3.0

    Is there anything that could be done? After searching a bit I have found that current digikam is at 5.6.0 so maybe this is an issue?


    thank you
