  1. 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

  3. I don't know. How can I find out?
  4. 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
  5. Hi, It worked! Thanks to everyone who helped. donjames
  6. Hi Cardinal, Where do I put "opera --no-sandbox" in the opera.desktop file? Opera launches from the command line with: opera --no-sandbox
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. Hi Oleg, Here's what I did: ran epro flavor desktop put USE="X" in the make.conf file. then emerge -uDNv lxde-meta Got 113 packages to emerge. I will let you know what happens. Thanks for the help. donjames It worked! Here's what I did: 1) edited make.conf file: USE="X" emerge -uDNv lxde-meta All packages emerged including lxpanel Thanks for the help. donjames
  14. I get the following error when installing lxpanel: plugin.c:32:10: fatal error: gdk-pixbuf-xlib/gdk-pixbuf-xlib.h: No such file or directory #include <gdk-pixbuf-xlib/gdk-pixbuf-xlib.h> ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ compilation terminated. ####### end of error message ###### This error message was the result of: emerge lxde-meta How can I fix this? Thanks, donjames lxpanel.txt
  15. The owner is root:root for the eix directory. root:portage for the edb directory. I changed the owner in the eix directory to: root:portage and now eix-update runs without a hitch. donjames
  16. The directory, /var/cache/eix, has the permissions: drwxr-xr-x I ran eix-update as root. I changed the permissions to: drwxrwxrwx and it worked. Then I changed the permissions back to: drwxr-xr-x I hope I didn't break anything. Please let me know if this is a proper solution. Thanks, donjames
  17. eix installs until it gets down to the last line and then: Writing database file /var/cache/eix/portage.eix... cannon open database file /var/cache/eix/portage.eix for writing (mode = 'wb') How can I fix this? Thanks, donjames Solution: cd /var/cache chown root:portage eix emerge eix ###### end of solution #######
  18. That worked! emerge -C boot-update Thanks a bunch, donjames
  19. I am trying to update a new install of Funtoo Linux. I get this message when I try emerge -uDNv @world sys-boot/boot-update ("sys-boot/boot-update" is blocking app-admin/ego-2.6.0-r1) What do I do next? Thanks, donjames
  20. The file /usr/share/zoneinfo does not exist in my new installation. Help! Thanks, donjames Discovered that entire stage3 didn't get downloaded. Problem solved.
  21. I am installing a new funtoo system. I type the command: mount -t proc none proc and I get the error message: proc does not exist What do I do now? Thanks, donjames Solution: Make sure that the entire stage 3 tarball gets downloaded. In my case, it didn't. When I downloaded it again, the proc directory got created. I just thought I would post the answer here since I suspect that someone else might have the same problem.
  22. Okay. I finally got mariadb to work. 1) Deleted all of the flags recommended by https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/MariaDB 2) Ran USE="-client-libs" emerge -v mariadb 3) Ran emerge --config =dev-db/mariadb-10.2.14 4) /etc/init.d/mysql start It works! Thanks to everyone for your help and suggestions. Sincerely, Don James
  23. Here's what I did: 1) /etc/init.d/mysql start It didn't start because there was no mysql database installed. 2) emerge --config dev-db/mariadb Asked for password and created the mysql database. It then exited with error: "Installation of system tables failed! 3)/etc/init.d/mysql start mysql starts, but I can't access the database. mysql -u root -p gives an error. It won't accept the password that I entered earlier.
