  1. @cardinal yes, I just worded it weird and confusing I guess. I'm saying that when he runs X it should use i965 for ivybridge gen procs, if not there is an issue 🙂
  2. @cardinal Hmm, yes you answered everything exactly right, but that should default to i965 and not use gallium. Just build out the old gallium i915 and intel driver. Won't know until you start an X session and check logs to see if its using i965 or not.
  3. I reported it to @drobbins last night, it was stuck in Russian. Should be fixed, if not please file a bug 🙂
  4. as noted earlier and by drobbins.... eselect python set python3.7 eselect python cleanup these steps were in the upgrade guide, someone has edited out the selection of the new default interpreter...eselect python set python3.7
  5. Thats exactly how I had fixed mine, with login.defs. Just change the SUB_UID_MAX and SUB_GID_MAX UID_MIN 1000 UID_MAX 60000 # System accounts SYS_UID_MIN 101 SYS_UID_MAX 999 # Extra per user uids SUB_UID_MIN 100000 SUB_UID_MAX 2000000000 SUB_UID_COUNT 65536 # # Min/max values for automatic gid selection in groupadd(8) # GID_MIN 1000 GID_MAX 60000 # System accounts SYS_GID_MIN 101 SYS_GID_MAX 999 # Extra per user group ids SUB_GID_MIN 100000 SUB_GID_MAX 20000000000 SUB_GID_COUNT 65536
  6. @quantum that wiki page mentions the nvidia-kernel-modules in the Introduction and the 1.4 Funtoo upgrade guide explicitly mentions needing the nvidia-kernel-modules package. The wiki page is editable by anyone if you wish to add please go ahead, it would be appreciated 🙂 Also, debian-sources-lts is the default and preferred sources for Funtoo. They are much more thoroughly tested/vetted. Debian-sources are more of a courtesy as they are latest testing of new kernel additions before a mainline LTS kernel is released.
  7. nvidia-kernel-modules needs to be installed separately, this is by design for container use cases. VIDEO_CARDS can safely be removed, please do not set to VIDEO_CARDS="" as that is means something different altogether and will cause breakage.
  8. should be fixed in tree now
  9. yes, thanks for the catch, a PR has been submitted 🙂
  10. I just want to say that gentoo-sources, that is not the LTS version which is currently 4.19 series, is basically mainline and all sorts of bad things can happen or regressions/corruptions/data loss is at a much greater percentage of being introduced. Breakage of nvidia-drivers/modules being a big one. Also you're following a kernel series that *will* be updated at least once a week if not more.Other patchsets have much better hardware support, backporting, bugfixes, and out of tree inclusions that really make the quality of life better all around for a normal linux user. Just my two cents.
  11. The zfs flag is only useful if you're building the binary debian-sources{lts} ebuild as it enables support in the initramfs of genkernel nothing more.
  12. bug FL-6683 https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-6683
  13. Yeah, might be a good idea to file an improvement request to add to profiles. If you're not using any type of LUKS or encrypted root or home etc, you could always add -static to cryptsetup in package.use. Maybe a cool idea to add a new mix-in for all this, to go along with the documentation that needs upgraded 🙂 There is an open bug for this maybe I'll add to it.
  14. What is your startx actually starting?
