  1. Would removing support for modemmanager, cause any performance issues with NetworkManager?
  2. Nevermind, I didnt see the "next" link at the top .. .
  3. Hello everyone What happened to the installation guide? it used to have all of the installation steps. Now when I click on the install guide, it does not go past chapter 2. Where are the rest of the steps?
  4. 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!
  5. 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!
  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. 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?
  9. 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!
  10. 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!
  11. 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!
  12. 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
  13. 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/
