  1. I am unable to reproduce this as I did this on another machine and didn't record the entire sequence of events. I will mark this as closed.
  2. new kits, master branch [SOLVED]

    I am marking this as solved as editing /etc/ego.conf works and is simple enough for me.
  3. new kits, master branch [SOLVED]

    I am just editing /etc/ego.conf, this works fine for me.
  4. How would I automate testing a system?

    With the advent of virtualization, I wouldn't actually do these things, they would be simulated. I mean, there is no way Google or ... Microsoft manually test their products. Maybe there is some proprietary product that does this testing. It isn't whether I have issues with these things, it is whether I *COULD* have issues with these things and not know about it. I'd rather know when I build my system that something is broken so I could just not upgrade.

    I like the style of the anime one, that is really great. These look good, by chance are you an F1 fan? It'd be awesome to take another concept such as F1 and do what you did with the anime one for that, or something else linux-related.
  6. Hi all, I suspect I am having permissions problems with overlayfs. 1. created a file (as root) 2. ls -l <file> 3. confirmed the file is owned by root 4. ran unshare -r <some executable> - output indicates file as being owned by nobody or 65534 even though ls -l confirms it is owned by root 5. ls -l <file> still shows file is owned by root Lastly, I confirmed in /rw/<path-to-file> that the permissions are the same as the file I created. Why is unshare seeing different permissions and how do I see what it sees?
  7. How would I automate testing a system?

    Well, yes, stuff generally works; however, when I need to print or something I haven't done in a year, it may not work and chasing down the problem when I need it to work is bothersome. And, by then it would be nearly impossible to see what change may have caused it. It might turn out that an application configuration needs to be changed. If all of that stuff could be simulated, then once I have the activity captured where I could replay it later, then I would have a guarantee that a new build is good before I actually decide to reboot to it. It is the same reason we have kits.
  8. How would I automate testing a system?

    That doesn't answer how I would test a linux image (where an image is an ISO ...). Sure, whatever I ultimately would invoke could be initiated by this, but I'm looking for the tool that would simulate network traffic, someone logging in, plugging in a monitor, etc. I would imagine I could hack together a bunch of scripts to do stuff in virtualbox, but that is sort of limited I would imagine and tied to virtualbox. Even then, I'd probably have to code in C or something.
  9. [Off] Plymouth Theme

    Is this a plymouth theme or lightdm? I use the console to login and not GDM / lightdm / KDM / etc. The video above was pretty cool, do you have anything more gentoo/funtoo specific?
  10. With all of the tools such as docker and virtualbox, I can easily launch a VM, but what I would like to do is to simulate all of the typical activity I perform on my machine and replay that against the VM to see what works and doesn't work. Is this possible using off-the-shelf software? For example, I would like to plug in a USB thumbdrive, join a wifi network, have certain displays connected, etc.
  11. new kits, master branch [SOLVED]

    Right, the ones that I was looking for were in the 1.1-prime kit. Is there a shortcut way (rather than specify the branch in /etc/ego.conf) to just use dev everywhere by default?
  12. new kits, master branch [SOLVED]

    For the core-kit, I am on the 1.0-prime branch, but should be on 1.1-prime instead. That seems to resolve that issue. I'll see if it is just a matter of taking the latest prime branch for each kit.
  13. new kits, master branch [SOLVED]

    Hi, I want to confirm that for some kits, they're no longer being actively synced with gentoo. For example, core-kit, apparently is not: The problem is that for example the version I'm trying to download doesn't exist in the gentoo package listing and is not available on mirrors. net-dns/bind-tools-9.11.0_p3:0/0::core-kit sys-apps/file-5.30 Lastly, on a related note, what is the process for marking packages as stable. Ie, is there automated testing, then someone simply updates the branch? If so, I'd like to understand the process so I could also automate testing of the builds that I generate so I can ensure when I update my system, it will reliably run.
  14. funtoo repo appears behind gento repo

    No, you need to look in /var/git/meta-repo/kits. The package / ebuild will be in one of those kit directories.
  15. Also, simply putting the symlink from /etc/init.d/unbound to openrc/started/unbound got the service to be able to be restarted again. The openrc/daemons/unbound/001 was not required.
