      Oh scusami se magari mi è sfuggito ^^ comunque come va con la tua Funtoo ?

      Ho appena postato un bug riguardo KDE ... in pratica non riesco a settare la lingua italiana come preferita .... in quanto compare solo L'Inglese/Americano" e stop. :(

      Beh vediamo che mi diranno ^^

      Ciao Egregio ... Buon Tutto :)

      Ciao Sandro :)

      Ho avuto esattamente lo stesso problema e l'ho risolto creando un nuovo utente (e nient'altro, se non ricordo male), mi fa piacere sapere che e` un bug, perche` stavo uscendo pazzo LOL

      Anzi, adesso che ci penso, qui sul forum ci sono delle discussioni che avevo aperto per risolvere quel problema ed anche qualcos'altro, ti passo gli indirizzi nel caso ti venga voglia di curiosare:

      Se vai a leggere, vedrai che nacque un grosso problema dopo aver installato un nuovo kernel e che non trovando la soluzione, alla fine, decisi di piallare tutto per ricominciare daccapo (dopo aver piallato mi venne in mente che forse un comando afferente a GRUB o ravanando nella cartella di boot avrei risolto, ma ormai era troppo tardi).

      Purtroppo non ho ancora reinstallato perche` sono senza Internet (mi collego con i dati a consumo del telefono in questi giorni).

      A presto!

      Se reinstallerai ... prova a dirmi cosa hai con "Systemsettings => Impostazioni regionali lingua ...

      Anche con la distro che stai usando seppur non *too.

      io sto compilando Gentoo a fianco

      voglio capire l'errore dov'è

      Per ora ... Buon Tutto :)

  2. Hi Jhan, Yes, looking at it now with "fresh mind" I get your point; yesterday I was just following Cafaia's instructions without checking on it, he is very experienced and I am a noob. Anyway, has been too much, I got annoyed and removed Funtoo. Maybe I will install it again later. Best regards Silvio
  3. My dear Eduardo, better if we laughing here, look: (chroot) sysresccd / # grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot --bootloader-id="Funtoo Linux [GRUB]" --recheck /dev/sdc Installing for x86_64-efi platform. grub-install: error: /boot doesn't look like an EFI partition. (chroot) sysresccd / # I don't know if I have to go to sleep or to try something here lol Big hug Silvio
  4. Ok :) Am starting again with the command #emerge grub After that, I will give (chroot) # emerge @module-rebuild (chroot) # grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot --bootloader-id="Funtoo Linux [GRUB]" --recheck /dev/sdc (chroot) # boot-update (chroot) # exit # cd /mnt # umount -lR funtoo # reboot Suppose is correct, I was still in chroot :)
  5. New problem here Eduardo, look: (chroot) sysresccd / # grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot --bootloader-id="Funtoo Linux [GRUB]" --recheck /dev/sdc bash: grub-install: comando non trovato Thinking you forgot something, i have been trying with the command below and comes out another problem (chroot) sysresccd / # emerge grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot --bootloader-id="Funtoo Linux [GRUB]" --recheck /dev/sdc !!! '--target=x86_64-efi' is not a valid package atom. !!! Please check ebuild(5) for full details. (chroot) sysresccd / # :)
  6. Hi Jhan, I can't give you technical explanation, I can tell you my recent experience with UEFI: - Having Windows 10 on /dev/sda as first installation I reserved /dev/sdb for Linux, knowing is correct to have both disk "UEFI" they are like that. Linux Mint has been the first distro going on /dev/sdb, installation process is very simple and does'nt ask for boot partition. First time I have been installing Grub on /dev/sdb thinking that is the correct place but I experienced that Linux Mint not seen by other distros (needing to create folder in /root and edit /etc/fstab to get
  7. Hi, Eduardo :) Yes please, I see your message on the forum here now. I see also the last one were you telling me is very important to reinstall Grub. Before seeing it I have been reinstalling the "original" Grub on the system but situation is still the same. Do we have to think for something else or still needing to try with Grub on pen drive? I don't know if important to know but the situation about Grub is this one: - Installed with Linux Mint which is on /dev/sdb2 (Grub installed on /dev/sda) - Boot partition for Funtoo is the EFI one on /dev/sda2.

  8. Hi Eduardo :) For some strange reason the last message of yours is not on the Forum here, I saw it on my mail, this one: Hi, Silvio! I thought that SystemRescueCD had the driver nvidia, then we'll have to do something else, let's make Funtoo bootable again. For this you should do a chroot and reinstall the kernel and the necessary drivers with the commands: # emerge debian-sources # emerge @module-rebuild I do not use the UEFI system, but you should follow the steps in the Grub Funtoo installation manual, but this time we will install Grub on a USB drive, so you should connect
  9. Hi, Eduardo! Something still wrong here, look: (chroot) sysresccd / # Xorg -configure :5 X.Org X Server 1.19.3 Release Date: 2017-03-15 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: Linux 4.8.15-1 x86_64 Gentoo Current Operating System: Linux sysresccd 4.14.20-std521-amd64 #2 SMP Sun Feb 18 15:31:04 UTC 2018 x86_64 Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/isolinux/rescue64 Build Date: 31 March 2018 10:00:12AM Current version of pixman: 0.34.0 Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org to make sure that you have the latest version.

  10. P.S. Forgot to say that never errors coming out; only that one concerning "udev"
  11. Hi, Eduardo! I checked the services, "dbus" and "consolekit" are running for what I can understand. I did some attempts always in chroot from System Rescue CD, I don't remember all steps but surely I have been doing the process for "X" and "KDE". Hoping is not a problem that I was on System Rescue CD working in graphical environment when working. Gone looking at the pages you suggested to me but I was puzzled because the process is not the same of the one on Funtoo manual. So, I gone to Funtoo manual, these are the pages I have been following more than others: https://www.funtoo.o
  12. Hi Cafaia! No problem, already you did a lot for me, I will try to solve the problem and will post the final result here. A pic of Schio for you here, is not a special one but am unable to get any better than this one; it is the Old Town, your Grand-Grandpa surely has been walking there. Big hug Silvio
  13. Hi Cafaia! I am here in real time now, just gave the command and this is the output: (chroot) sysresccd / # emerge -av --update --deep --newuse --changed-use --with-bdeps=y @world These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies... done! Total: 0 packages, Size of downloads: 0 KiB Nothing to merge; quitting.

  14. Hi Cafaia :) I am mortified but still problem here: SDDM refuses password and mouse's pointer does'nt move over there. Plus, no access to consolle (Ctrl+Alt+F1). After installing the kernel got problem at boot, I try to explain: lines were like flashing and problem typing for user name and password (no access, of course). So, I did many steps trying to solve the issue myself, maybe I forget something, but surely I did: - Installing Nvidia drivers again - emerge -v1 x11-wm/twm x11-apps/xclock x11-terms/xterm - emerge xf86-input-evdev - cancelling the user (the old one cancelled
