  1. About go, in my opinion, it was far behind compared to most distros /even on dfbsd, which I use occasionally/. Especially after switching to 1.3, all I see is vim-* bump. As I mentioned several times, I use funtoo to do my work, which is 90% backend dev, using go/php/js most of the time. For months go was behind, months. I personally have a local overlay, where all I do is versions bumps. Hmm, you're saying that package updates are not meant to be part of the distro ? Smth like "every man for himself", right? Well, thats smth new. Isnt the distro supposed to handle ports/pac
  2. @lazlo.vii You know, it will be much better if you at least try to be polite, right? @drobbins Back to the topic - if you want to get more and more involved into funtoo dev - isnt it better to have current/dev branch? If you want devs, isnt it a must to have at least dev branch,where they can work with ?! I mean, some of the major distros release based models have that : - Debian has unstable/sid -> testing ... -> stable release major/minor releases - FreeBSD has current -> release -> .. stable I still don't get it with removing current branch. Do releases, impl
  3. About doing smth, well, some do, me included. Small, but here and there. The question is more about the direction things are going. We all know release model is much easier than rolling distro. One of the reasons I jumped on Gentoo/long time ago/ then on Funtoo is the rolling model. Some of the others are that its source based, slots, alot of customisation/flags ... etc. My point is - today you decide to switch from rolling to release, eg no current, just freezed releases. Tomorrow nothing stops you from source based to package/bin oriented ? Maybe Debian clone /one of dozens/ ?
  4. Quick note: I used current all the time. Atm there is no current, thats the problem for me. So ... funtoo imao is not a rolling distro anymore.
  5. Hi @pfl, So, in short there is no way atm to use current, right? Also, dunno whats the problem half of the users/or even more/ to use current. Thats one of the reasons to use rolling release distro. Maybe, if there is really no way to stay in current, I will stop using Funtoo. Feel sad, before Funtoo used Gentoo, SourceMage, Lunar ... source based distros are fun to use in fact. Thanks anyway.
  6. Hi Guys, Yesterday I decided to switch to 1.3 rel. After syncing, some packages were marked for downgrade. I've red the "Upgrade to 1.3" notes, several discussions, etc ... My questions are: - whats the funtoo release model - rolling or some sort of freeze releases, with some marked as LTS - is there a way to be/stay always in current, eg to use as before, as a rolling distro Regards, M.
  7. When I skipped the header checks, all went good, the server is up and running ok. Will keep that ebuild for me /obviously I didnt make it quite right/. Will dig into the docs, to see how its the correct way. Thanks, you can close the topic

  9. Hi, Currently I am using the layman mysql, its 5.7.12 atm. But it not upped in months. I tried to fiddle with the ebuilds - copied the latest one as mysql-5.7.15.ebuild, - ebuild mysql-5.7.15.ebuild manifest all went just fine, but at the end I receive : -- Installing: /var/tmp/portage/dev-db/mysql-5.7.15/image/usr/share/mysql/magic -- Installing: /var/tmp/portage/dev-db/mysql-5.7.15/image/usr/share/aclocal/mysql.m4 -- Installing: /var/tmp/portage/dev-db/mysql-5.7.15/image/usr/share/mysql/mysql.server * Making Convenience links for mysqlcheck multi-call binary * Building default
  10. The problem was alittle complicated - bios upgrade / on lower version kernels I had strange CPU0 offs/, firmware + got it working only on gentoo-sources-3.17.8-r1 ... On upper versions, eg 3.18+ its not fine, as on 3.16* Now all fine. Wireless stopped/using same kernel config / but its smth with the firmware I guess.
  11. Yah, I followed those docs, it was working for several months.
  12. Forgot to define the newer xorg.conf file content -> http://pastebin.com/utKTnWu7
  13. After rebuilding almost everything xorg modules/firmware/server related, I get a blank screen. Xorg is working, just the screen is black In my .xinitrc I use -> xrandr > /tmp/xrandr to be able to see what screens are seen after X is started. I get: Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 8 x 8, maximum 16384 x 16384 The latest Xorg.0.log is -> http://pastebin.com/Ufc7xpUf. Do I need custom EDID ? Also, in the log there are some screens there, except Screen0: [ 777.818] (II) modesetting(G0): Output eDP-1-0 has no monitor section [ 777.819] (II) modesetting(G0): Output VGA-1-0
  14. Yes, its compiled and loaded: Odin ~ # lsmod | grep nvidia nvidia 8314138 0 Odin ~ #
  15. Nothing from the above suggestions worked - rebuild @x11-modules-rebuid, played with xrandr .. Nvidia is listed as a xrandr provider, after starting X I get blank screen. The resolution is set to 8x8. Nvm, mark that thread as closed. Maybe the problem is somewhere in the firmware or smth like that. Thanks all for replies ;-)
