  1. I saw the announcement about xfce 4.13-release kit availability but when I do "ego kit list" I only see 4.12-prime as available. Shouldn't that command list all available kits? Just trying to make sure that I understand the feature correctly.

    LightDM will not start XFCE

    Your log says "Greeter requests session Xsession". It should say "Greeter requests session xfce". If you have the session type indicator on your greeter screen then be sure that you have xfce selected. If not then you probably need to adjust your lightdm settings to enable the session indicator or set the default session to xfce.

    20 GiB of free space?

    If space is a problem you can work around this by redirecting your portage temp directory to a larger partition by adding this to your make.conf file. PORTAGE_TMPDIR="/somelargerfilesystem"

    python woes

    Assuming that you've updated your tree as per above you may need to apply --nodeps to get ego up to a serviceable version. Then run 'epro update' and 'ego sync'.

    Aboui new portage with "kits".

    Think the transition has been more difficult and piecemeal than would be ideal. I think once the transition is complete and all the tools are in place Funtoo has the potential to be a much better distro for the average user than it has been. Kits have the potential to reduce the number of breaking changes that get through to users.

    post-kits update profile problems

    That's current. I agree, it sounds like you may have skipped a step somewhere. Post the output of "emerge --info app-admin/ego"

    manual updates required

    Then you need start by switching to meta-repo. https://github.com/funtoo/meta-repo

    Changes in Funtoo

    I'm happy with where these changes are going now that I (think I) understand it better but I agree that it could have been better communicated and managed to create less impact. Ideally they would have maintained the existing system and offered access to meta-repo in alpha, beta, rc, and release versions. Unfortunately I think their path was probably necessary due to having such a small team. Maintaining the existing flow of changes from upstream while transforming so much on the back end was probably not practical. On the communication front, I agree that it's a bit much to expect people to go check the web page or forum every time they're doing an update. It would be nice if one of the command line tools could pull a feed and at least present a link to any news updates.

  12. Looks like this should be fixed in the latest updates. https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-4038

    No updates under emerge --sync

    Funtoo hasn't used eselect for news for a long time. News is posted to the Funtoo news page: http://www.funtoo.org/News Normally there is an RSS/Atom feed to this but it appears broken right now.

    can not find a specific kernel

    The command that you quote only lists metadata about the installed gentoo-sources packages. For equery it sounds like you want to use the 'list' module to list packages. equery l -op gentoo-sources The overlay and portage (-op) options are required to list packages other than those that you have installed.

    Forum search broken?

    Thanks, I tried a forum search with no luck :) but didn't think to search there. Obviously not critical in view of the fact that it's gone largely unnoticed. The meta-repo changes drove me to try searching for the first time in ages.
