  1. The lvm flag didn't work for me. I still see the same messages at boot time as those I posted in my original message. At least I have a working kernel with the manual build of the kernel I described. Thanks again.
  2. Sorry I just saw your answer. I rebuilt the kernel with Device Mapper Support built in (instead of a module) and it's now working. I was not aware of the lvm use flag. I added it and I'm now emerging debian-sources-lts again. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks a lot.
  3. Correction: the kernel parameter real_root in /etc/boot.conf is /dev/mapper/funtoo-ROOT.
  4. Hello everybody, I just installed Funtoo release 1.4 on an AMD K10 cpu; the kernel is debian-sources-lts version 4.19.67_p2-r1. I used LVM for all the file systems, including the root file system (I used the instructions in the following guide). I used the following kernel parameters in /etc/boot.conf (again from the guide mentioned above): dolvm real_root=/dev/funtoo/ROOT rootfstype=ext4 resume=swap:/dev/mapper/funtoo-SWAP. When booting I see the following messages: I have another box running Funtoo release 1.3 with version 4.19.37_p6 of the Debian kernel. I have the same se
  5. Thanks to all for the replies. I'll upgrade to Funtoo 1.4 as soon as I can.
  6. I tried to build kde-plasma/plasma-meta on two different PCs but they both fail on the same package, sys-apps/accountsservice. The error message is that systemd is required. I added the nosystemd mix-in to my profile but that didn't help. I tried to blacklist the package in package.mask but emerge returns an error saying that it must be unmasked. Would someone know if there's a way to build this package without systemd? Thanks in advance.
  7. Thanks, but that shows the version of the kernel, which I think is not related to the Funtoo release version.
  8. Ok thanks. I see mostly 1.2-release when I run this command so I guess it means I'm running version 1.2. Would that explain why I don't get new updates?
  9. Here it is: denis@euclide(~)$ cat /etc/ego.conf # This is the ego.conf file [kits] # You can set your default kits here. Unset kits will use the Funtoo default prime/master # branch by default. # python-kit = 3.6-prime
  10. I haven't updated my Funtoo systems in a while and now when I run ego sync there's no new packages. I see that there are new releases of Funtoo (1.2, 1.3). Can someone please tell me how to see which release I'm running. Thanks.
  11. I am really sorry, I wasted your time all along. I sudoed to root on the MacBook and looked at the command history. I was root when I changed the profile. I wonder how I can work in that business and be sometimes so confused.
  12. If you read the documentation on profiles, for example here, it doesn't say root privilege is required. I'm only trying to change my own profile, not system wide. I use sudo to emerge. For the rest I set up the two PCs exactly the same way, except for the stage download. Thanks again.
  13. Thanks a lot for your help. Again, they're exactly the same denis@euclide(~)$ sudo cat /etc/sudoers ## sudoers file. ## ## This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root. ## Failure to use 'visudo' may result in syntax or file permission errors ## that prevent sudo from running. ## ## See the sudoers man page for the details on how to write a sudoers file. ## ## ## Host alias specification ## ## Groups of machines. These may include host names (optionally with wildcards), ## IP addresses, network numbers or netgroups. # Host_Alias WEBSERVERS = www1, www2, www3 ## ## User alia
  14. They're exactly the same: denis@euclide(~)$ groups denis wheel audio cdrom video users denis denis@maxwell(~)$ groups denis wheel audio cdrom video users denis
  15. But the permissions on the system where command epro flavor desktop works are exactly the same as the other system where it doesn't work: denis@euclide(opengl)$ ls -l /etc/portage/make.profile/parent -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1411 Nov 4 06:56 /etc/portage/make.profile/parent denis@maxwell(~)$ ls -ld /etc/portage/make.profile/parent -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1365 Nov 4 07:42 /etc/portage/make.profile/parent euclide is the PC where the command works, maxwell the one where it doesn't. Besides, I remember installing Funtoo a year ago or so and epro was also working with my own account.
