    Here is Mate DE 1.20  https://github.com/safulkin/mate-120

    Ebuild's versions updated according http://pub.mate-desktop.org/releases/1.20/

    One ebuild edited (mate-base/mate-applets): invest-applet removed from Mate 1.20.

    It works fine. No more glitches with fonts, icons, shadows and desktop backgrounds.

    This overlay for funtoo 1.2 updated up to Mate 1.20.4
    Good choice for arm boards, all my asus tinkerboards  with Mate DE 1.20 since august 2018.

    Next version Mate 1.22 (release month ago) in different new overlay for funtoo 1.3 and funtoo 1.2  https://github.com/safulkin/mate-122
    Work in progress. few issues. Declared new features not tested (wayland, elogind)

  2. This settings looks fine. few basic tests.


    is it ok? or 100% loss?


    check that eth1 RX packets is not 0. if RX packets is 0 then cisco managed switch block all traffic, or cable plugged in wrong port, or something wrong with switch configuration for this port (something like VLAN, ACL)


    is it ok? or 100% loss?

    arp -n

    any arp records for network on interface eth1?


  3. asus tinkerboard (arm32 armv7a_neonvfpv4_hardfp)

    funtoo 1.3 use 10% less memory, 10% more memory efficient.

    One host funtoo 1.3 minimal flavour + nginx = just 49M RAM, good response time.

    Another host funtoo 1.3 with Mate 1.20 Desktop Enviroment (from my overlay),  < 170M RAM. (funtoo 1.2 with Mate 1.20 ~193M RAM).

    Mate DE support gtk+ up to 3.22, so I disable native mate themes and use shipped with gtk+ 3.24 themes adwaita and adwaita dark. and it works :)


    this parameter lower portage threads priority and system remain responsible


    EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS="--jobs 2 --load-average 4"

    --jobs limit amount of parallel running jobs.

    --load-average for soft limiting overall CPU load average. In practice, with --load-average 4 htop tool show actual load average between 3.5 and 8.5

    Tune this parameters, try just one or two jobs and load average less then amount of CPU cores.


    Do You have swap partition? I have 4 Gb swap partition. Swap partition solve out-of-memory build faults.

  5. I am asus tinkerboard single board computer enthusiast. Funtoo work great with many single board computers. Reason why stage3 stuck in GCC version.

    latest in tree gcc-7.3.1-r3 build fail on arm architecture, but previous gcc-7.3.1 work fine.

    So solution steps is:

    • begin with latest stage3
    • mask broken version =sys-devel/gcc-7.3.1-r3 in Your /etc/portage/package.mask
    • perform 1.2 upgrade steps with official Funtoo upgrade instruction https://www.funtoo.org/Upgrade_Instructions




  6. I'm Mate DE user on armv7a (asus tinkerboard SBC) and few amd64. Mate 1.18 have some issues after gtk+ upgrade. Some minor random issues with fonts, icons, shadows, backgrounds . Old ebuilds and eclasses is tarball from homesite,  not from github. Gentoo tree don't have ebuilds of Mate 1.20 release. Calculate have Mate 1.20. I'm experimenting, trying to fix ebuild fails in my local overlay. My English is not good enough to be maintainer of Mate DE.

  7. I have this issue on arm (armv7-neonhfv4) and amd64:

    emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "=x11-libs/gtk+-3.22*:3".
    (dependency required by "x11-themes/mate-themes-meta-3-r2::desktop-kit" [ebuild])
    (dependency required by "mate-base/mate-1.18::desktop-kit[themes]" [ebuild])

    As temporary solution I disable themes in /etc/portage/package.use

    mate-base/mate  -themes
