  1. This has been fixed ... reinstalled using the gnome-current stage
  2. Hi, just completed the upgrade for gnome 3.36.2 and and all went well, but now upon a fresh ego sync and emerge -avDN @world, i'm getting an X warning about my xdm file tux-x131e ~ # emerge -avDN @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. tux-x131e ~ # emerge --depclean * Always study the list of packages to be cleaned for any obvious * mistakes. Packages that are part of the world set will always * be kept. They can be manually added to this set with * `emerge --noreplace <atom>`.

DISPLAYMANAGER="gdm" I don't understand what or how it needs to be updated. X has started flickering and crashing since the update. It happens after 5 minutes when screen dims to go to sleep. Is there something i neglected to clean up? regards, Tom
  3. Ok so here we are... i grabbed the funtoo live image from the funtoo.org site, and have successfully installed and broken my new system a few times haha some minor questions i have, upon issuing these commands chroot # ego sync chroot # emerge -auDN @world and having a fresh new world, there are a couple of cleanup commands presented and wanted to clarify. should i run the emerge --depclean before the 1st boot. Also, for libtool ... after compiling and installing libtool its recommends the command libtool --finish, am i pointing this at /usr/lib or /usr/lib64?
  4. Good afternoon, it has been awhile since i've run anything gentoo, and having aquired 2 thinkpads, windows absolutely had to go. I began the install by installing the systemrescue cd on a mmc flashcard, and boots the machine up nice and quick. Upon reading the funtoo installation pages, i realized i have a Uefi boot Thinkpad. its a 4th gen 11e with an AMD processor. Everything went as anticipated until it bacame time to chroot into the system. This was and has been my return error since my initial attempt; [root@sysresccd /mnt/funtoo]# env -i HOME=/root TERM=$TERM /bin/chroot . bash -l Illegal instruction (core dumped) I've rebooted twice thinking i missed a command somewhere in the instructions. The tarball i grabbed was gnome 1.4 current out of the AMD-excavator Subarch, and followed the funtoo chroot instructions from creating file systems Chap 5 thru 9 chrooting into the enviroment and nothing, Then i attempted the gentoo way from their handbook before having to ask and find out where i went wrong ... this was my last attempt last nite.

Regards in Advance Tom EDIT: Wrong subarch i believe 😑
