  1. When I launch nestopia, I get an immediate segfault: nestopia[5264]: segfault at 10 ip 00007fe24e3e9e74 sp 00007ffc936c9e40 error 4 in libgcc_s.so.1[7fe24e3dc000+11000] [83739.944349] Code: ff ff c5 f8 29 9d 00 ff ff ff c5 f9 6f 95 80 fe ff ff c5 f9 6f 9d 90 fe ff ff c5 f8 29 a5 10 ff ff ff c5 f9 6f a5 a0 fe ff ff <49> 83 7c 24 10 00 c5 f8 29 ad 20 ff ff ff c5 f9 6f ad b0 fe ff ff I'm wondering if anyone else has it running or recommends another emulator.
  2. Thanks, for catching that. I'll make those changes and report back. My make.conf is automatically generated by a utility ... that said I am no longer writing empty values (such as VIDEO_CARD=""), but instead have this: HOST="x86_64-pc-linux-gnu" CFLAGS="-march=ivybridge -O2 -pipe" CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}" CPU_FLAGS_X86="aes avx mmx mmxext popcnt sse sse2 sse3 sse4_1 sse4_2 ssse3" MAKEOPTS="-j5" # patches below here # kernel USE="${USE} symlink -fortran -openmp acpi" The other changes I made were: ->=x11-base/xorg-server-1.17.4-r2 xvfb +#>=x11-base/xorg-server-1.17.4-r2 xvfb -media-libs/mesa bindist -gallium -d3d9 -llvm -x11-base/xorg-server glamor glvnd udev +#media-libs/mesa bindist -gallium -d3d9 -llvm +#x11-base/xorg-server glamor glvnd udev
  3. When playing a video, I noticed that I apparently am lacking opengl acceleration as the video plays terribly slowly. My package use flags: media-libs/mesa bindist -gallium -d3d9 -llvm x11-base/xorg-server glamor glvnd udev Part of my make.conf CHOST="x86_64-pc-linux-gnu" CFLAGS="-march=ivybridge -O2 -pipe" CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}" CPU_FLAGS_X86="aes avx mmx mmxext popcnt sse sse2 sse3 sse4_1 sse4_2 ssse3" MAKEOPTS="-j5" USE="opengl X xinerama dbus gtk gtk3 -gnome-keyring" VIDEO_CARDS="" SANE_BACKENDS="" LINGUAS="" I have the gfxcard-intel mix-in enabled, so my VIDEO_CARDS should be set to all intel. Additionally, I have followed the guide here to my knowledge and have installed libva-intel-driver: https://www.funtoo.org/Make.conf/VIDEO_CARDS/Mix-ins. Is there something else I'm missing? This was working fine on 1.3 and I believe I had manually set the VIDEO_CARDS setting then as there may not have been a mix-in.
  4. I must have had an old kernel built, so the kernel source directory was not configured properly.
  5. When attempting to build ZFS on release-1.4, I am getting this error: checking whether modules can be built... no configure: error: *** Unable to build an empty module. emerge zfs -vp [ebuild N ] sys-fs/zfs-kmod-0.8.1::core-kit USE="-custom-cflags -debug -rootfs" 0 KiB [ebuild N ] sys-fs/zfs-0.8.1::core-kit USE="python -custom-cflags -debug (-kernel-builtin) -rootfs -split-usr -static-libs -test-suite" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7 python3_7 -python3_5 -python3_6" 0 KiB Even though I have build a kernel and have already booted to it (outside of this chrooted env), I feel like there is something not quite right with my /usr/src directory possibly. Any ideas?
  6. I do not use KDE, so I do not know the answer to your question off-hand; however, would you be able to do: 1. post emerge --info 2. post the stack trace / log message According to this: https://packages.gentoo.org/packages/sys-apps/accountsservice You are right that systemd should be an option. Additionally, exploring the ebuild from funtoo on github: https://github.com/funtoo/nokit/blob/master/sys-apps/accountsservice/accountsservice-0.6.50-r1.ebuild REQUIRED_USE="?? ( elogind systemd )" !systemd? ( !elogind? ( sys-auth/consolekit ) ) I think if I'm interpreting that correctly, when systemd is disabled, elogind must also be disabled and you need consolekit.
  7. Yes, this is very true, and well-said. What are your thoughts on the new Linux phones coming out such as the Librem5?
  8. I was running unbound in conjunction with DNSSEC to basically ensure that responses aren't tampered with (because it is plaintext, if there is a malicious party in between me and the DNS server, it could modify the response without me knowing). Now, if I run unbound by itself in this manner, basically, my DNS queries are sent out in the open, plaintext and then unbound will do all of that magic for me, ensuring that the IP address for google.com is indeed what it should be. Now, not all zones to my knowledge are signed. Now, if I'm worried about someone seeing what my DNS traffic is, then they're going to be able to see my IP traffic too, so I don't see how much benefit there is to hide my DNS traffic. Yes, the IP address might be used by many domains, but they might all be fairly closely related. Now, if I were using forwarding DNS queries to another provider, I am basically delegating that responsibility to them and may or may not be able to validate the result. Is that an accurate assessment? And, since they may not provide DNSSEC, if the DNS provider isn't offering DoH or DNSCrypt, then I have no guarantee that the IP address returned is accurate?
  9. Hi, Is just no logging or does it also filter out ads / spam as well - I think it supports DoH so at least if you don't have DNSSEC, then you can be sure your DNS isn't tampered with. My concerns would be: 1. is this DNS record valid, how can I be sure 2. is this DNS record for ads / malware / spam / etc. - use a blacklist / blocklist (uBlock)
  10. I do have liberation-fonts installed. I built terminator for python 3.6, I see it is looking for python 2.7. Also, on a possibly related note, I was attempting to watch videos in VLC and on my new image, the video doesn't play very well at all. I suspect there may be an issue with my opengl setup? Perhaps it is related? It does report file not found for libGldispatch.so.0 and lib64/charset.alias.
  11. Agreed, so what you need me to do is to switch back to the default and then I think I have a utility installed that lists all the open files (strace?) during execution and see which ones are reported as file does not exist? Then, that should be very clear which font is missing? I would be happy to do that, just need a teeny, tiny bit of guidance (if the above approach sounds reasonable) :).
  12. Okay, I think you're right. So, I think I thought I must have selected a monospaced font, but did not. When I selected the Deja Vu Sans Book Mono, it looks good, but when I select just a Deja Vu Sans (non-mono), I have the problem. Okay, that explains it.
  13. I installed xfce4-terminal and st and both display just fine. I am leaning toward migrating to xfce4-terminal since it is fairly lightweight, written in c versus python (I've had some annoyances in the past where terminator would hangup when I was doing a fair amount of I/O in the terminal), and still has tabs. I use a tiling WM, so terminator doesn't provide anything I cannot do with my WM with better performance. I am curious as to what happened that is causing this issue, but in the end, I am planning to migrate back toward xfce4-terminal. Walter
  14. Thanks - I don't have an .Xresources and I did try playing with those font settings. Also, my old system does not have a .Xresources either. On a random note, I noticed that between 1.3 and 1.4, the path to libraries has changed, I think the 64 was dropped and it is just /lib or something. I wonder if that might be related ... Also, I'm not sure if it helps or not, but the fonts all look perfectly fine when previewing them in terminator's configuration, but once I choose them, that is when the appear squished like above.
