    You should file a report @ bugs.funtoo.org so Daniel or Oleg will see it.

    GNU and the the Free Software Foundation have nothing to do with putting users first.  They are idealogical organizations who expect users to sacrifice their own interests to further their agenda.

    Hey everyone, I've written up a news item detailing all the stuff that's going on with Funtoo to keep it focused on you, our users. Give it a read:

    666threesixes666 reacted to spectromas in wierdness installing funtoo. (lxqt)   
    The point is that if you had followed the install guide then you would have set up a flavor and mixin which would have automatically set things like X. There was no need for you to view the wiki page to "fumble in the dark", the install guide cleary tells you:
    and then details how to enable whichever you like. Did you look at the output of epro list? There is a listing for lxqt there.
    This is why it is relevant that you didn't follow the documentation. The other issues you mention are simple setting up USE flags and when this needs to be done portage explains what you should do.

    666threesixes666 got a reaction from duncan.britton in wiki work   
    ok im going to start a wiki work thread for drobbins to communicate with me on because he's busy, im busy, chat works great but these are going to be long term things that need worked out.  mainly dealing with the upcoming skin.
    what do you think about www.funtoo.org/ <--- ie removing Welcome / Main_Page?
    what do you think about the skin being even more like a web page, with login, edit, etc at the bottom?  (id probably stick search at the top of the page still)
    back story to above line, the skin's order in vectors h1 heading, body, then the rest of the tools to make content at the top of the html,  rest of tools to make sidebar etc... instead of beating up the css extensively to make the site have all the tools at the top just make a pretty footer, and migrate most of the menus to the actual welcome page like is done with Main_Page....
    i posted commits upstream to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgActionPaths can we get that going so its www.funtoo.org/Main_Page/edit or www.funtoo.org/Main_Page/delete to make the site even more usable?  www.funtoo.org/Main_Page + /logout && return =D
    what about TOC, the new skin supports scrollspy...  if i fix this will you turn on the tocs?
    Package: name space's contents out of order for mobile, it shows the use flags first instead of inserting them where they would be relevant, they're not minimized for mobile / optional to see since you only really need to see them once at install, and they're consuming tons of space.  cat/pkg summary news needs to go to the bottom of the page, mobile users are looking at the news every package page.
    backend stuff.....
    varnish is good, but it doesnt support unix sockets, so its becoming a liability, i posted updates to the tengine / nginx pages so nginx could take over varnish's duties of acceleration.  it supports sockets out of the box, ssl, and multiple backend servers.
    possibly more to come on this post in a second if no immediate reply

    666threesixes666 reacted to j-g- in Some artwork for Funtoo (Wallpapers)   
    Hello funtooers, I have noticed the lack of Funtoo artwork in general, so I took some time to play around with blender and Inkscape to make some wallpapers(7).
    In a search for  a base image, I only encountered a small banner with the Funtoo logo, so I did a re-vectorization, and some slight line chages, and this is the outcome, the wallpapers are mostly minimalistic, Also link to a tar.xz with sources (.blend .svg) and pack png of renders in 1920x1080px, I encourage you to play around with the sources and post your results in this thread.

    Here's a prewiew from imgur


    PD: I would Also like to ask to the developers if this can go to the wiki? for those, newcomers that will want a funtoo wall for their desktops.

    666threesixes666 reacted to voidzero in Preventing unwanted runlevel and config file modifications.   
    As a user who uses Funtoo almost ubiquitously on servers and workstations, and loves it dearly, I just can't get used to a couple of things. Hope we can talk these over.
    First point that's been bugging me for a long time is when an installation or update modifies my runlevels. It's pretty annoying and on my systems, the only person who alters a runlevel should be me.
    All I'm asking is for is a way to be able to prevent runlevel modification. I'm cool when the default stays like how it is now. But I need to divert from the default. Maybe a setting in rc.conf or make.conf? Maybe some confirmation step like we have dispatch-conf for config file alteration?
    For example, I just installed a postfix update on a server and it added postfix to the default runlevel. But what if I don't want that? Maybe I'm using stacked runlevels. Or maybe I have an 'online' runlevel and an 'offline' runlevel. Right now I don't have a choice in the matter.
    Same with /etc/init.d/hostname. If there's one init script I abhor... :ph34r:  This one even alters /etc/hosts. The audacity!
    Alright, that's a strong word. But still. I just need a way more simple hostname script that just sets the hostname via /bin/hostname and leave it at that. I tried to create my own replacement init script for that, for example /etc/init.d/myhostname, but when I update openrc... BAM the default script is added right back to the default runlevel.
    Guys, this should not happen. There are other examples. Lvm for instance. What if I don't use lvm? "Then there shouldn't be a problem." No, there is a problem because I don't have a choice and need to pay extra attention.
    The current way I'm working around runlevel modification is by creating a copy of /etc/runlevels, and after updating or whatever, setting that copy back. And for good measure I make a copy of /etc/hosts. Or I lock it by using chattr +i. Yeah that last option sucks. But it's what users do when a file keep sbeing changed. So the extra steps I need to take to make sure that my own post-installation modifications stay in place, are growing. Hope this is something we can discuss, because all I'm really asking for is more versatility.  :)

    hi friend....  so lets pull out the relevant info....
    Total: 20 packages (2 upgrades, 18 new, 5 uninstalls), Size of downloads: 20 kB Conflict: 28 blocks (28 unsatisfied) !!! Multiple package instances within a single package slot have been pulled !!! into the dependency graph, resulting in a slot conflict: dev-libs/nettle:0 (dev-libs/nettle-3.1::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by (no parents that aren't satisfied by other packages in this slot) (dev-libs/nettle-2.7.1-r4::gentoo, installed) pulled in by <dev-libs/nettle-3[gmp,abi_x86_32(-)?,abi_x86_64(-)?,abi_x86_x32(-)?,abi_mips_n32(-)?,abi_mips_n64(-)?,abi_mips_o32(-)?,abi_ppc_32(-)?,abi_ppc_64(-)?,abi_s390_32(-)?,abi_s390_64(-)?] required by (net-libs/gnutls-3.3.15::gentoo, installed) 28 blocks WOW something bads going on with your system.....  what abi is your system?  x86_64?  nettle 3.1 and nettle 2.7 are having a battle....
    you basically have 2 options...  remove the blocking packages, or masking the package that is conflicting with your existing system....  both options have perils... though the second option can cause more blockers if it's being pulled in by another package.
    required by (net-libs/gnutls-3.3.15::gentoo, installed)
    soooo i would try masking nettle 3.1 to avert the whole ugly nightmare.  i actually have nettle 2.7 and am being suggested update to 3.1 so ill try to reproduce this.

    666threesixes666 reacted to swamprabbit in Opinions on using Funtoo or different distro on my Lenovo Yoga 2 11   
    Just a quick update, I have been overly busy with work that I haven't gotten far with this install.
    But since my last post, I put in a improvement bug report for a subarch for Silvermont CPUs, and drobbins has been great enough to create a subarch for the CPU used in the Yoga 2 11S!
    Which means now when I get back to it in the next week or so, it will be an optimized build for the Yoga 2 11S now!

    666threesixes666 got a reaction from pytony in freecycle?   
    i've been a member of several online communities & forums.  some of them had threads about sharing stuff...  i dont have money to ship stuff but i could gather it up...  i know some people need hardware, and i have several old computers i could give away that may be better than what people have.  anyone else interested in this idea?
    i have several sound blasters, an old logitech webcam i could give away, some pc cases i could give away, some pc speakers that are missing the subwoffer, a bricked linksys router....  im not sure how this would be setup, it would probably have to be a "taker pays shipping" setup since its not exactly small items all the time.

    This might give you some idea of the amount of upstream bugs I am encountering while building a full build of GNOME. Many of these build failures are due to use of binary packages, which it doesn't appear that Gentoo actively tests:

    I think this is a brilliant development, especially for newcomers or people who do not have a great experience with building kernels. I have a question, will it be possible to provide a binary kernel also at cases when a new kernel version becomes available and an update is necessary?
