  1. One or more updates skipped due to dependency conflict: dev-libs/libxml2-2.9.9-r1 conflicts with dev-util/itstool-2.0.6-r1 This was on 'emerge @system' Anyone know the steps to resolve? Tried --backtrack=500 and even removing both. Also tried --emptytree
  2. Where is gfxmode set when you do ego boot update It keeps going to 640x480. Also when I build grub myself, the grub-mkconfig outputs a vastly different file than ego does. How can I fix this?
  3. Install has more options and is designed for packages to use. Mkdir just makes a simple directory; it's like "install-lite".
  4. I was getting "failed to connect to lvmetad", so I tried the (theoretically inert) fix of taking "noauto" away from my boot line in /etc/fstab. The error is gone. So I put the "noauto" back in, and it is still "fixed". Is there some one-time function that needs to read /boot when a new kernel is built?
  5. Try emerge --autounmask-write x11-base/xorg-x11
  6. Ah. "Things I could have been told YESTERDAY!" I didn't see the other one - was it there on the 18th? If I redo this install and gnupg fails I'm going to be pretty mad... have you done a simple core to desktop update on a core i5?
  7. So I got the 11-20 stage3 for Haswell, removed /lib43,/usr/lib32, and /usr/src/lib32, removed lib32 from env.d and generated a new ld.so.conf. I had to emerge sys-kernel/{debian-sources-lts, genkernel, linux-firmware}, sys-firmware/intel-micocode, sys-apps/iucode_tool, and grub. This gave me a working Core, so (after a backup) I ran 'epro flavor desktop'. I was required to emerge dev-python/{pygments, pyyaml} [could this be included in desktop flavor?], and eselect fontconfig to add 60-liberation.conf (for some reason). Now the 'genkernel all' is failing on gnupg. I tried emerging ap
  8. OK I fixed this. So I got into the grub editor and changed the name of the kernels manually to get it to boot. Then I did an ego boot update which failed. I then remembered the emerge grub part and did that. When I looked up it was like the matrix on my screen as a billion lines of code went by. Why doesn't make change the text color to shades of green when i use the --matrix option??!!? I used etc-update to merge /etc/default/grub changes. Now "ego boot update" worked, tho with warning I must digest. Things I notice: the search line has updated disk ID, and it found the ol
  9. My problems are these: I can't boot because grub lists an invalid efi file, and choosing it gives an error. So I boot a LiveCD and chroot in. When I run 'ego boot update' I get an "ERROR: couldn't find grub-probe" Emerge grub says "fails to validate /dev - may be a broken '/dev/fd'". I don't know how to fix this.
  10. I don't know how to update the grub tho. The kernels in boot are all LTS 4.9.130, but grub.cfg says genkernel 4.14.12. I don't remember modifying grub.cfg so I wonder if there is a tool I need to run?
