    description: Wireless interface

    product: AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter

    vendor: Qualcomm Atheros

    logical name: wlp3s0

    ...

     

    And about using SystemRescueCD and updating @world: it worked. Thanks a lot to all you guys that helped me. :'><3333

    Also I have to say that occured 2 emake fails when I did emerge -auDN @world. But seems that things are working fine. ^^

    Let's walk through this....

    Need HW information. Do `emerge -a1 lshw`. We'll use the package executable to query stuff.

    Execute `lshw -C network` will produce details about the ethernet devices in your computer (both wired and wireless).

    From the output, we'll get insight about chipset. That'll be needed to determine if correct drivers are available/installed. (modprobe stuff we'll do later).

    For my box:

    
    # lshw -C network
      *-network                 
           description: Ethernet interface
           product: RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller
           vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.

    A swath of networking devices utilize the RealTek chipset. This requires a binary blob that is available standalone or as part of linux-firmware. This may be missing for you.

    If you have IRC, jump on and we can sort this out for you.

    Stay strong...you're not alone.

    Unfortunately I can not emerge lshw because I have no way to connect to internet (I'm using my computer wich has Windows installed and internet connection to ask for help in here). I think the best I can do at this moment is wait for Funtoo 1.4 and install it on my notebook. When I have done with that, I'll try to install liquorix kernel (by overlay) again (because the same wifi problems was occurred when I tried to install liquorix kernel) and I will try to do these steps you asked me for. I will also install an IRC client to chat with you and other guys from Funtoo comunity. However, thank you for trying to help me! :><333


  3. Some time ago I emerged world updates and my kernel (debian-sources-lts) got updated too. After it, I did genkernel all and then ego boot update. Later I rebooted my notebook but I could not have access to wifi anymore. I realized that a different message is shown when I do login instead the normal messages from networkmanager. This message says "ModemManager[3346]: <info> Couldn't check support for device '/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.2/0000:02:00.2' : not supported by any plugin".

    I checked the modules of the kernel by doing make menuconfig and I saw that actually it has support to wifi, despite it I'm still without wifi access. To complete this unpleasant situation, I accidentally unmerged my old kernel (which wifi still worked), so right now I'm about 2 weeks without having access to internet on my notebook (because it has not entry to put a LAN cable).

    In a previous topic I talked about this issue and a guy told me that it might occurs due to some modules that is not loaded at boot time, but I have no idea how to solve this problem. Now I'm using my computer that has Windows, and I'm not liking to use it after set up all my Linux environment on my notebook.  ;-;  I would be really grateful if somebody help me.  :'><3

    You may need to modify your kernel build options to make sure that a module for your wifi chipset is being built.  You may also need to check whether the module is being loaded or if there is other firmware or drivers for the chipset that need to be installed.

    Seems complicated to me but I'll try, because I want to install liquorix kernel on my computer.

    I remember running into this a few years ago. There is an environment variable that can be set that sometimes works:

    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dwm#Fixing_misbehaving_Java_applications

    
    _JAVA_AWT_WM_NONREPARENTING=1

    This is supposed to tell AWT to behave under a non-reparenting WM, such as dwm. Drop that into a file under /etc/env.d, and then run env-update.

    Thank you! It solved my issue. :><33


  6. But I got other issue, I have no wi-fi access anymore. It seems like some time ago when I tried to install liquorix kernel by an overlay. But this time I'm using the default debian sources kernel that got updated when I updated @world. After the update I did run genkernel all because I thought that the X server problem was because kernel configuration. Although if I choose the older kernel on GRUB's init I can get access to wi-fi.


  7. I did emerge -auDN @world and I got a list of new packages to be installed and others to be reinstalled. I saw that xorg-server should be updated, bringing some other dependecies with it. After the world update I did reboot my notebook. On the initiation of OpenRC I realized that the letters on the screen did not become small (as it usually does) and when I tried startx I got: 

    Quote

    xinit: giving up

    xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused

    xinit: server error

     

    I suspect about flags of xorg-server and flags of its dependencies, but I'm not sure about that. Can anybody help me with this issue?


  8. Some Java components as JLabel, JButton and many others is not showing up on the JFrame. If I set a text to a button, it doesn't appear in the screen. I suspected that this issue is because the default font used by Java is not installed so I tried to change the font used in the components but once again it didn't show up anything. I checked if it was due to bad code or something like this but was not the case, also I used codes from the internet and none worked.

    I really don't have another idea of how to solve this and I'm worried because I need to practice Java UI due to I'm studying an OOP subject in the college. If someone help me I'd really appreciate.

    Which USE flags do you mean? The ones for surf?

    No, I mean the global USE in make.conf. I built surf from source code, so Portage USE flags doesn't matter.

    When I emerged surf by Portage some pages like google.com didn't show nothing too. The only difference is that the emerged surf didn't close, it just showed a black empty screen instead the usual white empty screen.


  10. Can you show me your USE flag to I have an idea?

    After building surf, when I try to open some sites as google, soundcloud, youtube, etc surf closes and leaves this message "web process terminated: crashed". I suspect that's because I didn't set some flag to surf dependencies. This issue doesn't occur when I open simple sites (e.g. suckless.org). I have installed almost all gst-plugins and it didn't solve this crash issue.

    Do you have set the gtk USE flag for the gcr package? You need that to get the file gcr-3.pc

    Thank you a lot, it solved my issue. Do you recommend I set USE globally with these kind of flags? E.g.: USE="alsa gtk -pulseaudio qt5 X" and so on... My use flags currently is like this USE="bash-completion minimal xinerama zsh-completion". I disable the minimal flag in some cases (e.g. for nano text editor) although.


  12. I tried to compile surf browser from source code but it needs gcr-3.pc although there is only gcr-base-3.pc in $PKG_CONFIG_PATH (/usr/lib/pkgconfig). I emerged webkit2-gtk, gstreamer, gtk+, gcr and all dependencies that I found but gcr-3.pc continues missing. Some days ago I've emerged surf by source code without problems, but after reinstalling Funtoo on my notebook seems that some things just don't worked anymore. For example ZSH doesn't export the path variable properly after the Funtoo updating to 1.3, so I can't use almost all programs, also I changed my default user shell to bash but seems that shopt options also doesn't work properly (e.g. shopt -s nocaseglob and shopt -s nocasematch doesn't garantee the match case, I have to type using the correct case).

    I tried find help searching about this surf issue, but almost all problems I saw could be corrected exporting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH or installing the gcr lib, but I already did it and it keeps don't working. I suspect that it might be some package that doesn't installs properly (I also already reemerged a lot of packages), so because it I'm posting it here. I have to say that I also tried to install surf by just emerging it and it worked fine, but I don't like to emerge suckless programs (I do install it by compiling the source code) because most of them is not in the last version on Portage (like dmenu, st, etc) and because patching a package on Portage is not so simple as patching the source code and doing "sudo make clean install".

    My log file when I tried to "make" surf is attached in here.

    I will say that adding more packages to the base install of Funtoo would add more attack surface to the distro. 

    Quote

    In my opinion the best way to make Funtoo easier to use (especially to those who are new to it) is to have those people with the most knowledge of the "Best Practices" write more documentation for Funtoo.

    I got you, but what I proposed is the opposite of adding more packages. Also, that new stage3 I proposed might could be unofficial and people who download this would know that it's unstable and may not secure; something like "without warranties".

    Although if people start doing more documentation about Funtoo it would help a lot the users, including people that likes to try different things like me.


  14. Some few days ago I knew about CloverOS that's basically Gentoo with more packages installed by default, with custom config files and also highly optimized with a bunch of flags to compile programs by the most optimized way. This caught my attention so I checked their packages and I saw that the CloverOS guys disable some flags that may break some specific packages, which is nice! Also some few days ago I knew about GentooLTO, that's an overlay for optimizing the compilation of packages. I like to try new things, so I tried GentooLTO with Funtoo on virtualbox but I got a bad news that GentooLTO doesn't work properly on Funtoo.

     

    With those discoveries about the Gentoo world, I got myself thinking about if Funtoo had a stage3 with the suckless philosophy, minimal (this is, no custom config files and without a lot of packages installed by default, unlike CloverOS do, unfortunately; only the core as Funtoo's stage3 do), without "bloat" or "bad" (or maybe unnecessary) packages (as CloverOS do by not using systemd, pulseaudio, dbus, avahi and nls), with LibreSSL instead OpenSSL (and also with musl instead glibc if possible), and configured to compile programs to be the most optimized as possible.

     

    Well, I'm a young man, I started using Linux about 5 months ago (and I started using Funtoo about 4 months ago) so I have no much experience to do all things I want on my Funtoo system. So I would like (and I think that many other people also would do) if someone that also liked theses ideas make a stage3 with theses "features". This is only an idea to try to make Funtoo more "cozy" to different kinds of people, I hope you guys liked it.


  15. I was testing using LibreSSL and other things (like Liquorix kenerl, musl, gentooLTO, etc) on my Funtoo in a virtualbox and I experienced some emake fails and another issues. So I decided to try install each thing at a time instead mixing and trying all at the same time. So I tried first to install LibreSSL following the Funtoo's tutorial and was a success, but when I tried to install networkmanager occurred an emake fail with the net-wireless/crda package. I saw that this package has a libressl flag, I suspect that libressl makes it fail. I also experienced some emake fails early when I tried to install musl; seems that theses packages causes a lot of problems, or I might be too newbie to try these advanced things.


  16. Well, I did "ego sync" and then "emerge -auDN @world" and the packages just were been updated after long hours. So I reboot my notebook and then... Some programs were not recognized (e.g., I typed "ls" and it said something like "ls is not a command"). So I checked the PATH variable and there was too few paths in it. So I tried to put others paths like "/bin, /usr/local/bin" and others and finally I could launch dwm and open my browser ... And now I'm here.

    Does anybody have an idea of how to fix this issue? Well, I know that there is some files that sets the PATH var, but if a program changed it I think the program might could change another things too...
