    MongoDB in 1.3

    I thought I would post a quick fix that I did for mongodb in 1.3. The 4.0.4 ebuild in 1.3 is broken. I posted a local overlay here that works with manual ebuild commands. https://code.funtoo.org/bitbucket/users/johnwiki/repos/mongodb-for-funtoo1.3/browse Feel free to use if you like. If I get time, I'll try to submit an official pull request (even though I've never done one, so I may not be successful my first time) Instructions to use it should be here: https://www.funtoo.org/Creating_Your_Own_Overlay

    Server with ECC

    Sadly for that board, crucial doesn't advertsie any ECC memory ? https://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/ASUS/prime-x370-pro I've seen some Asrock X470's that do have ECC chips on crucial.

    Server with ECC

    I've been reading up on this. It seems ASUS and Asrock have the best ECC support, however (with Asrock sort of in 1st place)... If you have a amd cpu with integrated graphics, those do not support ECC. A lot of ryzens' should on a great many ASUS and Asrock boards, or so they advertise. The other key with it, is you can't use registered memory with those boards. It has to be "un-registered" or "un-buffered" Most server memory is registered ECC, so you have to go to crucial.com and lookup some part numbers for "un-registered" or "un-buffered" memory. Of course this is all just research, no real experience with it.
  5. Thanks for the reply. I haven't went down the steam route yet, but, I did get an install working with KDE plasma 5. I can still boot windows with the UEFI boot menu, I just had to disable secure boot. I haven't bothered to try and make grub look for windows, or to enable secure boot for funtoo. It takes me all of 5 seconds to go into the menu and boot whichever one I want. I may wait until 1.4 for the steam stuff anyway, since I have steam in windows It appears lxd benefits heavily from btrfs and zfs, which I don't think I have a good way of running unless I create a loop device over xfs, as I ended up keeping a super simple partition layout (boot, swap, root), and I'm out of spare disks at the moment.
  6. How does everyone install pycharm community? I noticed the ebuild is a bit behind, 2018 version. Gentoo packages seems to have a few newer ones. I tried... emerge -av pycharm-community --autounmask-write It didn't seem to grab anything newer than 2018 version. Is everyone just using the jetbrains toolbox outside of portage?
  7. Hi all, I've recently gained an interest in using Linux as a desktop OS again, and I want to have some fun with Funtoo. I must say I have fond memories of Gentoo back in the early days (circa 2004), when Daniel Robbins' articles actually got me started on how to learn Linux. I'm going to attempt to install Funtoo on a spare SSD on a 4790K haswell with a GTX 1060 6GB. Are there any good guides for the following? -Dual boot with two seperate ssds, UEFI? (i.e. windows on one - and Funtoo on the other) -NVIDIA proprietary vs open source drivers -How to setup my profile (i.e. make.conf seems to be deprecated) with KDE (I was thinking of trying KDE out- since I haven't touched it in forever). -On that note, do you need a specific desktop environment to run steam? (I saw Mr. Robbins had a quick 1 min. steam video. Any idea how to get that working? (or should i just wait for 1.4?- as there seems to be some strange 32 bit dependencies - cmon Valve!)
