  1. hey! i'm 50% italian, but i don't live in italy anymore since 20 years... and oh, since yesterday i've switched back to the gentoo's portage tree after 6+ years with funtoo so i think i don't count anymore... cheers!
  2. While setting an empty GENTOO_MIRRORS makes portage use gentoo's mirrors with way better network performance, you may now either miss some package or size/sum mismatch any other... After some tests I've found out that: sometimes the download speed is as slow as 56kbps when this happens downloads from remote networks are still decently speedy (tried from data centers in the US and EU) running local speedtest with other servers in Santa Fe (where the fastpull server is located) don't show the same slow down I live in Granada and I think my ISP (Movistar/Telefonica)
  3. i don't know if it's wise to get rid of gcc-6.4.0 that fast since the most recent versions of cuda sdk/toolkit still depends on it as gcc versions later than 6 are not supported. however i can confirm that forcing compilation of cuda depending applications (like net-p2p/xmr-stak or app-crypt/johntheripper) by replacing "#if __GNUC__ > 6" with "#if __GNUC__ > 7" on /opt/cuda/include/crt/host_config.h:119, didn't give me any compilation or runtime problem so far... so please either leave gcc 6 ebuild alone or patch dev-util/nvidia-cuda-toolkit to ignore upstream unsupported gcc 7

  5. hello, any chance to get safe chromium ebuild to the tree? thank you
  6. if you don't want to downgrade and keep staying up to date with kde-kit's stuff, this is what i did: # check out gentoo's tree: cd /var/git git clone git://anongit.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git # create a script that syncs kde-kit's stuff from the gentoo's tree to a local overlay: cat > /root/sync_kde.sh #!/bin/bash cd /var/git/gentoo git pull cd /var/git/meta-repo/kits/kde-kit for i in *-* do [[ ! -d /usr/local/portage/kde/$i ]] && mkdir /usr/local/portage/kde/$i cd $i for j in * do [[ -d /var/git/gentoo/$i/$j ]] && rsync
  7. nevermind it doesn't work the way i've thought, i've created my own overlay instead...
  8. i've created my own kde-kit branch, how can i mark it active so that it might be chosen from ego.conf please? thank you
  9. ok, i can live with it for some time, however why forcing everybody on 5.10-prime branch if they where on master if neither branch won't get updates anymore? downgrading from master to 5.10-prime isn't something worth doing if you already are on plasma-5.11.1/apps-17.08.2/framework-5.39, imho...
  10. hello again, i've the following set into my ego.conf: xorg-kit = 1.19-prime media-kit = 1.1-prime kde-kit = master however on today sync i've got this message: "Kit kde-kit branch master specified in ego.conf is not currently active; using default kit instead." so why can i not choose kde-kit's master branch anymore in ego.conf? i've forced the master branch checkout by adding: @git -C /home/meta-repo/kits/kde-kit checkout origin/master || true into eix-sync.conf, however i wonder why these kind of hacks are necessary... thank you

    well yes, would be nice to have the possibility to choose between kde-plasma-release and kde-plasma-lts... however if it's too much fuss, just branch using kde-apps as reference instead of kde-desktop...

    kits logic

    i'm pretty sure they actually do it since one component release can be quite far away (in terms of time) from the other...

    what do you mean exactly with updating kde parts asynchronously? kde-apps/frameworks/plasma have different independent release schedules and gentoo adds new ebuild short after there is a release of any of the 3 components afaik...

    it would also be very cool to have an lts branch (like eg.18.08.3-lts-prime) which would install latest kde-apps-18.08.3 with kde-desktop-5.12.7 instead of kde-desktop-5.13.5 like 18.08.3-prime would do...
