  1. How do I go about setting up KVM virtualization on Funtoo?

    I guess no body knows the answer?
  2. OpenRC enhancements and Funtoo

    Hello all On the Funtoo FAQs, the following is stated: What will these next-gen features consist of and is there any timeline for when this will be released? I am eager to see what new features will be in the new OpenRC. Thanks!
  3. Hello all I recently installed Funtoo on my desktop computer and I would like to install and configure KVM so I can host VMs. I installed Qemu and libvirt. What else do I have to do in terms of networking, and package installations, configurations etc, to be able to create, and host VMs on my Funtoo? Thanks!
  4. Confusion regarding debian-sources kernel and using LVM

    how would I emerge the new LVM version with out keywords? Would I just unmask it and place it in the /etc/portage/package.unmask file and emerge lvm2?
  5. How does one unmask a package or add/delete keywords from a package?

    Thank you. I guess I would have to create those files and then add the packages I want to unmask/mask and the keywords I want to add/remove, correct?
  6. How does one unmask a package or add/delete keywords from a package?

    thank you for your reply. I actually got this error after I did a full update of my system. Also, where and what files should I edit for unmasking and masking files and adding/removing keywords?
  7. [SOLVED] Errors syncing xorg-kit and python-kit while running ego sync

    Thank you! I see that it is now fixed.
  8. Hello all I used to play around with Gentoo like 8 years ago so my knowledge of all of this is rusty, but how does one unmask a package or add/remove keywords from it? For example, I am trying to emerge xfce4-meta but I ran into this error: # emerge -av xfce4-meta These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies... done! emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy ">=sys-devel/automake-1.16:1.16". (dependency required by "sys-apps/vbetool-1.1::nokit" [ebuild]) (dependency required by "sys-power/pm-utils-1.4.1-r7::core-kit[amd64,-video_cards_intel]" [ebuild]) (dependency required by "sys-power/upower-0.99.3-r1::gnome-kit[deprecated]" [ebuild]) (dependency required by "xfce-base/xfce4-settings-4.13.1::xfce-kit[upower]" [ebuild]) (dependency required by "xfce-base/xfce4-meta-4.12::xfce-kit" [ebuild]) (dependency required by "xfce4-meta" [argument]) In my old Gentoo days, I used to unmask automake so I could pull in the latest versions of it (I believe this is what I used to do ) but with Funtoo I am at totally lost when it comes to how to resolve these emerge errors. Also, I was previously told in another post that if I was to emerge the latest version of LVM2, with out keywords, I will not run into the Openrc Init scripts to runlevels problem. How do I go about emerging LVM2 with out keywords? Are there any articles on this site that explain how to do these things? Also, how relevant are Gentoo's articles to Funtoo? Thank you for all of your help!
  9. Hello everyone. Last night, i built a Funtoo VM and when I ran ego sync, I got the following error message: ERROR: There was an error syncing xorg-kit. ERROR: There was an error syncing python-kit. At first, I thought it was something temporary, but tonight when I ran ego sync again , I got the same error. How should I go about fixing this syncing error? Thanks!
  10. LightDM will not start XFCE

    So i changed user-session to user-session=xfce.desktop and then chose the XFCE Session and it works now! Thank you for your help everyone!
  11. LightDM will not start XFCE

    I tried that, and the XFCE desktop still does not start up... Here is my /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf: https://paste.pound-python.org/show/PRPtuM1TZEGXtzin0i33/ I added user-session=xfce4-session. I do not know if its even correct lol but the only thing that happens is a very very minimal xwm session starts but not the XFCE4 session
  12. LightDM will not start XFCE

    Yes I have the mix-ins for xfce and I ran emerge -avuDN @world and afterwards I reemerged xsm and I rebooted and logged in again, and still I do not see the XFCE desktop. Here is a link to my /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log : https://paste.pound-python.org/show/aluHLGolO1K9e9worl91/
  13. LightDM will not start XFCE

    Thank you for your reply. I saw the following error in the ~/.xsession-errors file: /etc/X11/Sessions/Xsession: line 106: exec: xsm: not found I emerged xsm and now when I try to login using LightDM, I get a blank black screen. I dont get the XFCE desktop at all.
  14. LightDM will not start XFCE

    Hello all I emerged xorg-x11 and xfce4-meta and they installed just fine, I also emerged lightdm and configured my /etc/conf.d/xdm to use DISPLAYMANAGER="lightdm" but whenever I reboot my system, and LightDM comes up, I put in my username and password and instead of the XFCE desktop starting, LightDM starts up again and I have to relogin and this continues on and on and on.. How do I get xfce4 to start up ?
  15. [SOLVED] Having trouble with boot-update and LVM

    I fixed it! I had misspelled my Volume Group name in /etc/boot.conf and when I fixed that and changed both my /etc/fstab and my /etc/boot.conf to the following: /etc/fstab: (chroot) livecd / # cat /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # The root filesystem should have a pass number of either 0 or 1. # All other filesystems should have a pass number of 0 or greater than 1. # # NOTE: If your BOOT partition is ReiserFS, add the notail option to opts. # # See the manpage fstab(5) for more information. # # <fs> <mountpoint> <type> <opts> <dump/pass> /dev/sda1 /boot ext2 noauto,noatime 1 2 /dev/sda2 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 / ext4 noatime 0 1 #/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,ro 0 0 and my /etc/boot.conf to: (chroot) livecd / # cat /etc/boot.conf boot { generate grub default "Funtoo Linux genkernel" timeout 3 } "Funtoo Linux" { kernel bzImage[-v] } "Funtoo Linux genkernel" { kernel kernel[-v] initrd initramfs[-v] params += dolvm real_root=/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 rootfstype=ext4 resume=swap:/dev/sda2 quiet } It finally worked after I ran boot-update! I recommend adding the following to the LVM install guide for funtoo: The real_root path for the root partition, in /etc/boot.conf, has to match the entry in /etc/fstab exactly in the same format. Also giving examples in the guide, will also help! Just a friendly suggestion :) Thank you for your help! Now onto rebooting the VM and seeing if it even boots!
