    ego trouble

    Yes the problem was that appi used the default system encoding to read files, which is ascii when LANG=C. I assumed encoding should always be utf-8 for these files and explicitly read them with this encoding. If it happens that they may be encoded with a different charset on some systems, I'll have to handle this...

    @gissf1 for the record, can you show me the output of the command locale in your system that failed with appi 0.1.6? Thanks

    Thanks, I released appi 0.1.7. You can mask 0.1.9999 back and install 0.1.7 when it hit tree. :)

    ego query should work fine with python 3.4+, did you face any issue about it?

    Can someone try with `appi-0.1.9999` and confirm it fixes the issue? If it does, I'll release it as appi-0.1.7.
  6. It looks like you have your /etc/portage/repos.conf symlinked to /var/git/meta-repo/repos.conf. try: rm /etc/portage/repos.conf rm /var/git/meta-repo/repos.conf/funtoo mkdir /etc/portage/repos.conf/ ln -s /var/git/meta-repo/repos.conf /etc/portage/repos.conf/funtoo for f in /var/git/meta-repo/repos.conf/*.conf; do mv "$f" /etc/portage/repos.conf/; done
  7. It is run automatically after `ego sync` and when you change your profiles using `epro` commands. You normally don't have to run it manually.
  8. `epro update` updates the contents of the file `/etc/portage/make.profile/parent`. This file contains profiles that determine default useflags, masks, make.conf, ... These profiles depend on the python-kit branch you use and profiles you set with epro. `epro update` is indeed missing from documentation. You can file an issue on Jira about it.
  9. It looks like zpools are currently not resizable. :/ If so I think I'd better use LVM on top anyway.
  10. Oh I just found eclean utility by chance and freed 4Go in /usr/portage/distfiles :)
  11. What would prevent you from doing a dual boot with win10?
  12. Thanks Tassie_Tux, I think I'm gonna do a separate `/var` and `/usr/portage/distfiles`. I don't especially need options tuned for mysql performance. This is a database I only use occasionally when I am teleworking. I am currently reading about ZFS. If I understand correctly, I can use ZFS instead of LVM as it ships with its own logical volume manager. However I guess I still need LVM if I want to have distinct filesystems on each volume.
  13. Hi, I'm planning to reinstall Funtoo in order to move to pure64 (as I'm not using any 32bit). Upstream of said reinstall, I think about repartitioning my disks. I would like to leave some space free in order to be able to install LFS aside. I do have one 56GB SSD (sda), one 233GB HDD (sdb) and 1?4GB RAM. My disks are currently partitioned as the following : / -> /dev/sda3 53.5GB /boot -> /dev/sda1 0.5GB swap -> /dev/sda2 2GB /home -> /dev/sdb1 233GB I think about keeping /boot and swap as-is, and split rootfs in 30GB for Funtoo and 23.5GB for LFS However according to df, rootfs already takes 30GB. So I scanned my disk to identify huge folders : /usr (19G) /usr/portage (11G)/usr/portage/distfiles (9.8G) /usr/src (2.8G) /usr/share (2.1G) /usr/lib64 (1.8G) /var (11G)/var/lib (9.7G)/var/lib/mysql (9.5G) Don't you think it would be appropriate to leave /var/lib on its own partition (uppon /dev/sda) ? Or maybe the whole /var directory should be on the HDD rather than on the SSD ? Maybe /usr/portage would also be welcome on its own partition ? If I do this, I guess I will have to setup an initramfs (which I don't have yet). I see it as an opportunity to learn what it is, how it works and why it is needed. If I setup an initramfs, I will take the opportunity to go back to LVM as well (I left LVM in order to get rid of the initramfs when I wanted to focus on the kernel). Finally, I also think about learning more about filesystems and try "unusual" ones. Until now, I've only been using ext[2-4] and XFS. I've heard a lot about ZFS and BtrFS. Unfortunately I don't know much about filesystems (only got a very basic course about FAT, inode-based FS and the differences) and I don't know what changes I will be able to notice and what things I will be able to do with another filesystem. Do you think it is advisable to, let's say, use ZFS for the rootfs and learn more about filesystems a few months later ? Thank you all.
  14. I'm picking up your w!! trick for vim :P mkdir and cd in a row: mkncd() { mkdir -pv $1 cd $1 } In my python virtualenvs (using virtualenvwrapper), I have a postactivate hook to cd in the right directory after "workon virtualenv": [[ -f "$VIRTUAL_ENV/.workpath" ]] && cd $(cat $VIRTUAL_ENV/.workpath)
  15. Now I understand how you can help so many concurrent people at the same time. :P
