  1. Trim your config down then, it's meant to work for anyone rather than being tailored for you.
  2. Debian is ok if you deselect all the stuff you don't need.
  3. Did you look in the CONFIGURATION FILES section in 'man emerge'? It tells you how to manually fix this and other useful tools you can use to make it quicker and easier.
  4. Errors, logs, output? What do you expect us to do for you? http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
  5. No, but you can use the no-systemd mix-in if you really want/need to. Why are you even asking, is it getting dragged in when you're trying to install something?
  6. You got me thinking 666threesixes666 Looks like the driver is still in development for this particular issue, I found out that the git version of x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati recently had a commit which solves this. I just emerged it and sure enough it does fix it. I've updated the wiki for the radeon drivers to reflect this, it'll be quite a big thing for people like when that commit gets released.
  7. I'm using the open source drivers, as far as I remember the proprietary drivers were not supported after 3.8 kernel or something like that. I'm happy with the open sources ones on the whole and already now I have eliminated tearing in videos I can live with it in most other things if I ever see it at all, and I can just go back to using compton if necessary. get-edid | parse-edid This is read-edid version 3.0.2. Prepare for some fun. Attempting to use i2c interface No EDID on bus 0 No EDID on bus 2 No EDID on bus 3 No EDID on bus 4 No EDID on bus 5 No EDID on bus 6 No EDID on bus 7 1 potential busses found: 1 256-byte EDID successfully retrieved from i2c bus 1 Looks like i2c was successful. Have a good day. Checksum Correct Section "Monitor" Identifier "@ @" ModelName "@ @" VendorName "CMO" # Monitor Manufactured week 40 of 2008 # EDID version 1.3 # Digital Display DisplaySize 340 190 Gamma 2.20 Option "DPMS" "false" Modeline "Mode 0" +hsync -vsync Modeline "Mode 1" +hsync -vsync EndSection I was hoping to get a bit more information from it but it's a start. I see in the xorg man page that there are entries for hsync and vsync but I can't find what my monitor is capable of. I'll probably just leave it to be honest, it's not worth the time to fix it.
  8. I've always needed to use compton with my laptop to eliminate screen tearing but I found this mpv script today and it eliminates almost all tearing in videos. It has got me wondering if I can get rid of the tearing globally (the script works for videos but some other things cause tearing such as audio editing/waveform scrolling as I noticed today) but I don't know where to start, whenever I've looked in to it I've been advised to use compton. So where would I start, xorg config? Is it even possible? According to lspci I have: VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RV710/M92 [Mobility Radeon HD 4330/4350/4550]
  9. I'm having another look at this and installed it from the ebuild (according to the funtoo wiki) but apparently there is still a problem concerning libav even when using the -libav use flag. Flac files are still not able to be used which is annoying because my whole sample library is in flac now. I think when I was trying the demo previously I managed to get it working by locally compiling libav and installing it in to /usr/local/ but that feels very messy. I was really hoping by now they (the bitwog guys) would have done something about this.
  10. Think you'll need to emerge python version after unmasking it and then eselect python version.
  11. It tells you exactly what to do.
  12. Right click on the ugly fonts and Inspect Element>Computed (on the right hand side). There should be an entry for 'font-family', I think the one in quotes " " should be the one used. Then if you click on Fonts you can see the font you are using, so for example Computed might tell you Arial (which is what the website wants to use) and Fonts will tell you Liberation Sans (which is the font your computer has set as a replacement/alias for Arial) and this is the one it is using to display the page. You can use 'eselect fontconfig list' to see which rule you have enabled, perhaps you can just enable a few more fonts there. I personally don't really bother with that though and just enable the user.conf in eselect and set up rules for fonts in ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf. The simplest solution for fonts.conf I've found is using the croscorefonts and the config on the arch wiki here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Croscore_Fonts, you could change this for your own choice of fonts, Arimo is very similar to liberation sans. Alternatively, there is now an ebuild for infinality-fontconfig-ultimate in the gentoo/funtoo tree (media-fonts/infinality-ultimate-meta) so that would be the quickest and easiest way to get decent fonts, although perhaps not the lightest way. One other thing to mention is that if you emerge media-fonts/liberation-fonts make sure you don't get the 2.* version, it is has bugs with bold fonts (terrible kerning and uneven spacing), I read somewhere, the red hat bug tracker I think, that the 2.* series was abandoned and the fixes were put in to 1.*. Interestingly enough 2.* is marked as stable in funtoo's tree and 1.* as current but my system installed 2.* automatically probably because the version number was higher.
  13. nconfig gives this information for that option:

  15. I was curious about this as well when first using qt5 apps and never did find a solution for it. I hope your workaround is implemented somehow in the future, it seems like a lot of effort to go through for such a common need.
  16. twm and xterm are part of x11-apps/xinit so if you want to get rid of them you can use the minimal USE flag for that. http://www.funtoo.org/GNOME_First_Steps outlines what to put in your .xinitrc file (see ' Setting up xinitrc (text log-in)').
  17. Webkit is big and takes a while.
  18. Would it be good (or relevant at all) to have some mention of whether it is being targeted towards server security or desktop user security? desktop security and server security maybe?
  19. Are there any wiki pages that explain those steps you outline? I would be quite interested in setting some of that up.
  20. So what's the issue, NM needs to be restarted after hibernation?
  21. I have been experiencing something similar actually but the behaviour hasn't been completely consistent for me so far.
