  1. Dears, Currently I can only emerge nodejs-9.11.2 in my machine whatever I add coments in package.unmask or package.accept_keywords. How should I do? And same issue happened for installing android-studio. Thanks for your hint.
  2. I spent two days (partial time) to review Daniel's video. I think it helps me a lot. My understanding is follows: Funtoo is improvement from Gentoo, but not too much because of the lack of developer resources. Funtoo could be easily move forward by the dictation of Daniel. This benevolent dictation can avoid mass happened in Gentoo. Open Source things, suffered and happy :)
  3. Lego12239, I am not sure what you said is true. After all, Gentoo provide openrc from the very beginning when there is no systemd. And if you just want to use a static IP address, as my remember, you only need to config net file in /conf.d. Just for those wifi configuration, it is really too complex. But this complex is for both funtoo and gentoo. If I am wrong, please correct me.
  4. Lego12239, Could you say a little bit more about why you can't use systemd?
  5. Thank you very much, pfl! I really think this video is pretty much what I want to know. But my English listening ability is too poor. I can only know the frame of Daniel's presentation but not the details. I don't know if there is text version of the video?
  6. I used gentoo and funtoo for years, but not so often. The two help me a lot for learning linux while others didn't. I really thanks gentoo and funtoo. By using gentoo, I learnt compiling kernel and I feel it is so cool when I cut all of useless features from the config and finally get a streamlined kernel. But compiling kernel is not always so interesting when you must balance between its size and working guarantee. So later I found funtoo can help me here because of its general debian kernel. After that I periodically used funtoo. From then on, I always keep a question in my mind: what is the core difference between funtoo and gentoo or other linux? In order to find the answer, I not only search from google, but also use these different linux distributions. But longer time I do so, the question is deeper and boring me. As my rough understanding, the difference between gentoo and funtoo is the following: Funtoo default uses debian as its kernel while gentoo uses its own. Funtoo uses git for its portage while gentoo uses its original one (I don't know how to call it comparing with git). Funtoo has a tool to help simplify grub2 update config. I believe there must be more differences, and these differences what I don't know are just what I want to know. And the most important thing I want to know is why Daniel develop funtoo. Although I read a lot about funtoo's wiki or even Daniel's biography and stories, I still don't know why Daniel develop funtoo. For example, I don't quite feel using git to replace the current portage tool is necessary because I cannot feel much speed promotion on the upgrade procedure (I am not sure if this depends on the network performance). And I don't think the grub2 updating tool very necessary as I can use a script to implement similar effect. At least I think these two points are not the core difference between funtoo and others. I got to know Daniel successfully proposed funtoo used in some cloud environment (it seems like it is some special virtual machine). I am naive and don't understand. I am just curious if funtoo only suitable for these environment? If leaving these environment, what is the benefit of it? Sorry for my question looks a little bit serious and critical. I am a little bit obsessive-compulsive disorder. So If anyone can help me to clearly understand my question, I am so appreciate with you and I can have a good sleep then.
  7. Thanks everybody, since I have already get a working kernel and working X, I'd like to report my procedure here. 1. Clear the folder of '/etc/kernels' to let genkernel tool to use its default linux kernel configuration. If you leave this folder not empty, genkernel will use one configuration in the folder. But the configuration in my folder leads to a bad kernel which cannot work properly. 2. I use 'genkernel all' to generate a new kernel by using genkernel's default kernel configuration. This configuration belongs to genkernel tool because its location is in genkernel installation folder. I think this configuration is different than the one which funtoo default installs because with funtoo's default kernel I cannot start X. The generated kernel works very well. 3. I didn't follow cardinal's advice. I just keep VIDEO_CARDS="radeon" and everything is fine. I don't know why. 4. In my AMD Semperon 3000+ computer, I spent 3 hours to compile the debian kernel. I do think this exceeds my experience when I used gentoo kernel before. Probably I manually deleted many features before I compile gentoo kernel.
  8. Hi, jhan, I discussed about how to compile kernel with you before. And now I have to face this issue again. Although this time I feel better than before, I still have the following questions about compiling kernel: 1. I feel funtoo's default debian kernel consumes more compiling time than gentoo kernel. Do you think so and why it is ? 2. Can I just go to the folder '/usr/src/linux' and run 'make && make install' and run 'boot-update' to accomplish the kernel update procedure? I used 'make && make install' in gentoo and I know 'boot-update' is funtoo's tool, I don't know if they can work together. 3. I don't understand the benefit of 'genkernel' than the previous method. 4. If I just fine tune a few option of the kernel, how to speed up the compiling time to the kernel. I feel it is not valuable to spend more than one hour to just change a little feature of the kernel.
  9. I am installing funtoo in HP Pavilion laptop. I want to enable X in it but failed. "lspci" show this laptop has a [AMD/ATI] RS480M [Mobility Radeon Xpress 200] video card. I add 'VIDEO_CARDS="radeon"' in the "make.conf" and did the @world update. I installed "linux-firmware", "xorg-x11". But when I executed "startx" I got the following error message: (II) [KMS] drm report modesetting isn't supported. (EE) Fatal server error: (EE) no screen found I also checked the Xorg.0.log, but I can't find more useful information from which. So I will not paste it here. I am sure the hardware is OK because I installed Xubuntu on the same laptop just before and I can enter X then. Just Xubuntu still consumes too much resource so I decide to turn to use Funtoo. But now I stick here. Any hint? Thanks so much!
  10. After I commented out "S0:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -L 115200 ttyS0 vt100" in "/etc/inittab"file, I received consecutive alarm from the console: "init: id"s0" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes". Sometimes I need to use serial console to connect to my Funtoo server, so I did the above. But how to get rid of the boring information? And I don't know what is the meaning of it. Thanks!
  11. Thanks! I configure "hostname" file with FQDN, the issue is solved!
  12. When I login in to Funtoo, I just get "xyz.unknown_domain (Linux x86_64 4.15.17-1) 21:41:25" information. Before, I have followed network setting docs to create the /etc/conf.d/net.eth0 file with "domain="owxyz.com" configuration. But it seems no effect. I remember when I use Gentoo, I could get the correct information by setting "dns_domain_lo" in /etc/conf.d/net file. But now there is no "net" file at all, how should I do? Thanks!
  13. I suddenly somehow understand why we should NOT use the default .config when we make our customized kernel. It is because "emerge kernel" or "emerge auvDN world" will overwrite the default .config file in which case we will lose our previous work of customization. So I will close this topic session. Thanks everybody!
