  1. Support will be dropped for 1.2 .. I know some that are clinging to it for as long as possible and for you this may make sense. However the longer you wait, the more difficult the upgrade may become. Such is the nature of a semi-rolling release. You really must use your own judgement.
  2. Unless I'm misunderstanding something.. Your answers are no, no and no. Steam requires multilib as does lutris and playonlinux and also wine .. If anyone knows otherwise I would like to hear it.
  3. such a short list @palica what about Lisp, Pascal and Ada?.. What about Perl6?
  4. The article you linked actually says "There are no figures to back it up".. so from what I understand this is based entirely upon page hits for the distros on distrowatch? I don't think distrowatch has a metric or statistic of any sort that qualifies them to say definitively that any distro is "top 10". To be fair though, funtoo/gentoo are not as popular as distros with easy binary installers. At least not to your everyday end user of linux. Those numbers may sway the other way when you distinguish the types of users and systems in particular. For instance embedded devices and headless sy
  5. Presenting V3.1.0 release of Funtoo-Report which includes usability improvements and performance statistics for the tool itself This release contains no breaking changes. Improvements in this release include: added bash-completion for the tool added zsh-completion for the tool reporting how long each section took to generate added Changes file to track changed code and added features added config check logic, that will check configuration file for errors allowing to autofix Field Limit up to 10k We appreciate everyone's support and the tremen
  6. you said you edited the .conf file using --menuconfig.. but did you actually compile a kernel to that new .conf you made?... also you can't necessarily take a .conf from debian-sources and use it on an entirely different kernel. Each kernel version has it's own unique .conf file that is used to tell the compiler what to build into it when it compiles. Also the term "firmware" does not necessarily mean "linux-firmware" package. Is it possible this line from your .conf is preventing firmware from being built? ``` CONFIG_PREVENT_FIRMWARE_BUILD=y ```
  7. https://www.govtrack.us/developers maybe? https://www.congress.gov/about/data
  8. Just an update for those that have taken interest in the development of this project. Many new features and improvements are happening in the background to continue to improve this tool. The code in GIT currently pulls hardware information from tools like lspci etc. It also has an interactive function for generating the configuration file so that you don't have to edit the text file by hand. New issues that we are working on, by user demand are reducing libarary dependencies. As these features are tested on our test machines, we will roll out new releases that will hit the funtoo repositories.
  9. https://www.programmableweb.com/category/law/apis?category=20269 https://free.law/tag/api.html These are straight out of Google.. could be a good place to start. Are you interested in the process of moving that data or the storage/usage/display of this data? I've been quite interested in making use of the many APIs out there myself.
  10. the irony of this is that gentoo/funtoo are the perfect base from which to execute such a tool. Since binary distros have limitations on package contents that are not present in a source distro.
  11. The upgraded container is running well.. the performance is fantastic, thank you!
  12. I have 2 systems reporting, will set a 3rd up this week as cron job. What can we do to get an ebuild for this?
  13. considering this comment on #funtoo IRC channel: <@Azerthoth> haxmeister, I would add a few more common points of problems, video card family and class, driver. Sound system, drivers and controllers (alsa/oss/pulse/etc) Some of this sounds good.. especially vid card info
  14. This is really starting to come together.. the tool should be reporting nicely now if you have the latest commit. Now we really need to think about any new functionality we want out of the reporting tool and the quality of the data it produces. Also any information we would like to add to the report.
  15. Could you paste your entire /etc/report.conf file? Typically if it doesn't report anything, that's because it didn't find what it expected in the conf file.
  16. I'm still having no luck getting the profile info portion of the report to submit to elastic search. I set the cpu-info report to count the number of "processors" and report that. let me know if these numbers look more accurate.
  17. so cpu-info is a shady business. I'm thinking maybe we should remove "cpu cores" because that doesn't mean what most people think it means. Instead replace this with "siblings" which should always show the number of threads the CPU can handle at once. Do you think this would be a more pragmatic metric?
  18. Ok this is new output from my laptop: { "kernel-info" : { "version" : "#1 SMP Fri Jan 12 08:45:32 CST 2018", "osrelease" : "4.14.12-2", "ostype" : "Linux" }, "version-info" : { "python versions" : [ "3.4.6", "2.7.13-r1" ], "gcc versions" : [ "5.4.0" ], "portage version" : "2.3.18-r1", "ego version" : "2.3.3-r1" }, "cpu-info" : { "cpu cores" : "1", "cpu MHz" : "2194.421", "model name" : "Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 900 @ 2.20GHz", "flags" : [ "fpu",
  19. I will work on this more this weekend.. just got over the flu. I'll correct the profile/python thing or remove the listings for all the other kits other than the core kits. Writing the function to get the right version information for those is a bit of an enigma to me right now. Not sure where to get the right information from. I've also begun dabbling with a tool that will hopefully list all global USE flags that are enabled by your profiles, which is also a difficult trail to follow.
  20. The config file it uses looks like this : ## Configuration for selecting and deselecting which data ## is reported by the funtoo anonymous reporting tool ## ## All options are defaulted to report, you can change an item ## by altering the "y" and "n" to indicate either yes (y) report it ## or no (n) do not report it. ## # To report cpu info which includes clock speed, model name, # and cpu cores cpu-info:y # To report memory info which includes the amount of free memory, # the amount of memory available, total amount of swap space, # and the amount of free swap space mem-info:
  21. I have this simple output.. this is from my container: { "kernel-info" : { "ostype" : "Linux", "osrelease" : "2.6.32-042stab123.3", "version" : "#1 SMP Sun Jun 4 03:35:16 2017" }, "world-file" : [ "app-admin/eselect", "app-editors/vim", "app-misc/mc", "app-misc/screen", "app-text/tree", "app-text/wgetpaste", "dev-db/phpmyadmin", "dev-lang/php:5.6", "dev-lang/php:7.0", "dev-lang/rakudo", "dev-libs/libmcrypt", "dev-perl/JSON", "dev-perl/Perl-Critic", "dev-perl/Perl-Tidy", "med
