    Systemd

    I did not use dash or the openrc parallel boot option although I have used the later in the past. It only speeds it up by about 1-2 seconds but there is a noticible differnece in how long it takes gdm to finish setting up from the point when the screen goes black to when you can actually log in. It may have soemthing to do with gnome trying to force systemd. I think that it is because openrc is emulating systemd and that causes a performance slowdown. Off Topic: Not to start a flame war but everyone tells me that binary distros are better than source based distros which always bugged me because I hated binary distros. Well becuase of my issues with systemd and openrc I decided to try another distro (arch linux). To my amazement I have it up and running exactly like my funtoo box in only 30 minutes instead of hours for an install. I am going to run it for a bit and if I hate it I will be back to funtoo as my daily driver. So far I'm impressed. Not as configureable as funtoo but the install times are so much faster since you don't have to compile anything. Just my 2 cents.

    Systemd

    Thats good for you. I don't want a flame debate either, I just wanted to post this in case it helps someone else.

    Systemd

    OK I have systemd working on funtoo. The biggest difference is not only the boot time but also the time GDM takes to load. GDM loads almost instantly now, before with openrc GDM took about 5 seconds to load. I don't seem to have any other major problems. Tutorial coming soon. OK here it is... How to use systemd in funtoo: Go to gpo.zugaina.org and get the latest versions of the following pacakages from gentoo's version of portage virtual/libudev virtual/libgudev virtual/udev sys-apps/util-linux Next add the following to USE= in /etc/portage/make.conf systemd gudev -static-libs run the following echo "sys-fs/lvm2 -static" >> /etc/portage/pacakge.use Then comes the scary part... removing packages. This may or may not be necessary. I found that it fixed blocks when emergeing systemd. (the packages are added back later anyway so not to worry) emerge --unmerge virtual/libudev virtual/libgudev virtual/udev sys-auth/nss-myhostname lvm2 Now to install systemd run the following emerge -v --oneshot virtual/libudev virtual/libgudev virtual/udev && emerge -v systemd Finally do the following to update all affected packages. emerge -NuvD world The final steps are to rebuild your kernel enabling systemd which may not be necessary and then telling grub to use systemd. Add the following to /etc/boot.conf with the other kernel params. params += init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd Once you are done with that all you have to do is run boot-update Now you can reboot and enjoy systemd. Note you might have to add networkmanager and gdm to systemctl to get them to start automatically. That can be accomplished by doing the following. systemctl enable NetworkManager.service && systemctl enable gdm.service One last configuration step is to set your hostname and you are done! hostnamectl set-hostname <HOSTNAME> I hope that this helps everyone who is trying to get systemd working on funtoo. Enjoy!

    Systemd

    Well I'm currently working on installing systemd. It is kind of a pain as funtoo has removed support for it from some ebuilds. I just grabbed the offending ebuilds from the gentoo portage tree. I will write up a short tutorial of my steps when I'm done if everything works out. It is sad that gnome and everyone else is forcing systemd but it looks like they are winning and if you want the latest and greatest you have to use it or wait for the devs to patch it to work with openrc. I love funtoo but I also love bleeding edge. I would hate to have to leave funtoo just because I can't use systemd which I stated earlier that I hate anyway.

    Systemd

    Will funtoo ever support systemd? I know that everyone hates it but I think that we should at least support it along side openrc. Personally I like openrc better too but I wanted to try out systemd to see if it fixes some of the bugs with gnome 3.14 and to see just how fast I can get my computer to boot. Also correct me if I'm wrong but it is needed for wayland too, right? If not is there a funtoo tutorial on how to switch to wayland?

    Gnome update issues

    A quick workaround is the following but if you read they are eventually removing metacity so they should remove the dependency upstream. I can confirm that this is a bug. echo "=x11-wm/metacity-3.14.1" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask

    Gnome 3.14

    I have posted a bug with a screenshot of the wallpaper issue. https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-1721

    Gnome 3.14

    I am having an issue with my desktop getting distorted when coming back from the lock screen. Also I have had the lock screen appear the same way. Also nautilus won't open unless I click on the home folder on the desktop. Running nautilus from the terminal or the menu does not work. I fixed the nautilus issue by disabling desktop icons in gnome tweak tool and then reenableing them. I will test the lockscreen issue now. The lockscreen and the desktop wallpaper both get distorted after a system pause... press alt than then click where the lock button was.

    Webkit-gtk compilation hangs

    Yeah I just noticed that... did you notice that there is now a cinnamon profile in funtoo? How long has that been there?

    Webkit-gtk compilation hangs

    Yes I am using gnome 3.12 with webkit-gtk 2.4.4. Also where did you find 3.14.1 for funtoo? Are you using systemd? Nevermind... I just realized that it is in the tree just masked.

    Webkit-gtk compilation hangs

    Good to see that my bug report helped someone. I don't know why they can't just update the ebuild with something along the lines of if nvidia then eselect opengl set xorg-x11 && after everything is done eselect opengl set nvidia else obviously this is sudo code but they do what is depicted when updating nvidia drivers with the nvidia-drivers ebuild so maybe the community could adapt that.

    Am I the only one that uses Gnome?

    Gnome 3.14

    Yeah they always have an overlay that is up to date. But I am no ebuild writer and have no idea what patches were added to make OpenRC work instead of systemd. We just need a funtoo-gnome overlay instead of a gentoo-gnome overlay. Anyone up to the chanllenge?

    funtoo logo ideas

    I vote for this one too. But we need a cool color. Black is too plain and purple is too gentoo. My favorite color is cyan so I vote for that. I also like the plain black logo that dduffield posted, but again we need to add some color to it. I vote for a single color.

    Gnome 3.14

    any idea when gnome 3.14 is going to be in the portage tree for funtoo?
