  3. Hi, I have an HP low-power pc. The processor is a 32-bit athlonxp. I would like to install funtoo. I tried to download the 32-bit athlon file from the funtoo website, but it is not there. I downloaded the funtoo install cd iso and copied it to a usb. It won't boot on this 32-bit pc. My question: Is there a funtoo 32-bit iso image? Thanks, donjames

  5. I don't know. How can I find out?
  6. Hi, I am trying to install nodejs as part of a funtoo update. I get the following errors: * XATTR_PAX marking -me /var/tmp/portage/net-libs/nodejs-9.11.2/image/usr/bin/node with setfattr * ACCESS DENIED: open_wr: /root/.config/configstore/update-notifier-npm.json.1777672302 * ACCESS DENIED: unlink: /root/.config/configstore/update-notifier-npm.json.1777672302 ┌───────────────────────────────────────────────────┐ │ npm update check failed │ │ Try running with sudo or get access │ │ to the local update config store via │ │ sudo chown -R $USER:$(id -gn $USER) /root/.config │ └───────────────────────────────────────────────────┘ >>> Completed installing nodejs-9.11.2 into /var/tmp/portage/net-libs/nodejs-9.11.2/image/ * Final size of build directory: 315260 KiB (307.8 MiB) * Final size of installed tree: 48016 KiB ( 46.8 MiB) * --------------------------- ACCESS VIOLATION SUMMARY --------------------------- * LOG FILE: "/var/log/sandbox/sandbox-5854.log" * VERSION 1.0 FORMAT: F - Function called FORMAT: S - Access Status FORMAT: P - Path as passed to function FORMAT: A - Absolute Path (not canonical) FORMAT: R - Canonical Path FORMAT: C - Command Line F: open_wr S: deny P: /root/.config/configstore/update-notifier-npm.json.1777672302 A: /root/.config/configstore/update-notifier-npm.json.1777672302 R: /root/.config/configstore/update-notifier-npm.json.1777672302 ? npm F: unlink S: deny P: /root/.config/configstore/update-notifier-npm.json.1777672302 A: /root/.config/configstore/update-notifier-npm.json.1777672302 R: /root/.config/configstore/update-notifier-npm.json.1777672302 ? npm * -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- >>> Failed to emerge net-libs/nodejs-9.11.2, Log file: >>> '/var/tmp/portage/net-libs/nodejs-9.11.2/temp/build.log' ################# end of error message ############## Two questions: Can someone give me something to try to solve this problem? I have installed Chromium. If I uninstall Chromium, will nodejs become unnecessary? Thanks, donjames
  7. Hi, It worked! Thanks to everyone who helped. donjames
  8. Hi Cardinal, Where do I put "opera --no-sandbox" in the opera.desktop file? Opera launches from the command line with: opera --no-sandbox
  9. It gives: [646:646:1007/212946:ERROR:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(89)] Running as root without -- no-sandbox is not supported. See https:crbug.com/638180.
  10. I am trying to get Opera to run under LXDE on a new install of Funtoo Linux. The install runs okay with no errors and Opera appears in the "internet" menu. When I click on it nothing happens. How do I solve this problem? Thanks, donjames
  11. HI, I found the driver, but I didn't do the configuration correctly. When I chose the "internet printing protocol (ipp)" under "Other Network Printers", it allowed me to enter the printer's ip address. Now it works! Thanks to everyone for your help, donjames
  12. I have installed cups and my HP printer is working. The Brother printer is not working from my Funtoo Linux. The brother printer works from my Macpro. Where is the URI syntax on the Brother website? I finally got the Brother printer to print. Downloaded the print driver here: http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadhowto.aspx?c=us&lang=en&prod=mfcl2710dw_us_eu_as&os=127&dlid=dlf103525_000&flang=4&type3=10282 Converted the print dirver to a tar.gz file: rpm2tar <print driver name> On my web browser, I connected to http://localhost:631 Browsed to the "modify Brother..." Clicked on the "internet printing protocol (ipp)" button. Entered the ip address of my Brother printer. Now it prints!
  13. I thought I had, but evidently not. In the file, printers.conf, it says: <Printer Brother_MRC-L2710DW_SERIES> DeviceURI lpd://BRN3C2AF45C3EEB5/BINARY_P1 <PRINTER HP_LASERJET SERIES PCL 4/5> DeviceURI socket:// The HP printer, prints. The Brother printer, doesn't print.
  14. I have a Brother MFC-L2710DW printer that I am trying to install on a new install of Funtoo Linux. I was able to find the print driver on the Brother website, downloaded it and installed it. The printer is connected to my local area network. When I try to print, the print manager is saying that it can't find the printer. The exact message, "Unable to locate printer "BRN3C2AF45C3EB5"." Problem: Why can't the Linux OS find the printer on the LAN? Thanks, donjames
