  1. Man you guys are FAST! Super-congrats and extra brownie points on the quick response. I'm really amazed!
  2. Done FL-1723 https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-1723
  3. It doesn't look like libtool is having the issue, but rather something passed to it. My guess is that the ebuild is borked and I'm hitting some corner case where a blank shell variable is being passed, so it gets the arguments, but not the file to work on. Or something like that. My guess is its the java flag since thats kinda half-ass installed. I emerged with the java flag specifically off, and after what I posted before,I get: !!! When you file a bug report, please include the following information: GENTOO_VM= CLASSPATH="/usr/share/db-4.8/lib/db-4.8.jar" JAVA_HOME="/etc/java-confi
  4. I investigated as to why my grub wouldn't install when it looked like the compile was OK. Now emerging GDB and also attempting to re-emerge with different CFLAGS (just -O2, removing -march=native). Taro build-pc # ./grub-mkimage --help Usage: grub-mkimage [OPTION...] [OPTION]... [MODULES] Make a bootable image of GRUB. -c, --config=FILE embed FILE as an early config Segmentation fault (core dumped) What's weird is it should just be printing some output. That shouldn't crash it unless there is a major bug. Well ... it installed. Is there some way to tell portage to change C
  5. I'm finding a few packages that don't build and I keep trying to find work-arounds, change USE flags, or whatever, and now I'm seeing some that look like the ebuild is passing information to libtool incorrectly. Something is really broken, and this is still a fresh install (more or less - not booted it yet, just installing). layman wants to pull in svn (tired or arguing and accepting defaults). The result: checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out 000/image//usr/lib64/apache2/modules /usr/share/build-1/libtool --mode=install install mod_dav_svn.la /var/tmp/portage/dev-
  6. The only problem I see here, is that I honestly don't like binary distributions. Perhaps this thread is mis-named since I'm not really talking about a binary distro, but more of a graphical installer for funtoo. Then again, its not quite that either, since that would imply giving you all the options funtoo does and letting you select and customize every little thing. So, I'm shooting for somewhere between the traditional "maintain it all" distro and funtoo's "meta-distro". It will install things the way I see fit, with plenty of feedback from users as to how to best set things up to meet t
  7. net-misc/iputils Try pinging to see if traffic gets through (Google's public DNS). If that works, but www.google.com doesn't, then its likely DNS. Try, echo nameserver >>/etc/resolv.conf and then try again to see if adding a DNS server fixes it.
  8. Odd - I didn't post that at 8:59. Its not even that time yet. I posted that about 3 AM. Is the site on GMT? I'll end up re-engineering the whole thing from the ground up. I think it needs to run Funtoo completely just based on the general principle. Not sure if I'll do a liveCD with installer, or just have it boot to an installer. Comments on that welcome. As a live CD, if I make all the packages as generic as possible (all the same USE flags for all installs) then I can dynamically create the packages from what's on the liveCD or have an "install everything" option that just cop
  9. Anyone have thoughts on the "bindist" flag. Apparently, you can't redistribute binary packages with certain features and bindist turns these off - which can remove codecs, branding, and efficiency (in at least one case, it turns off sse optimizations). But, one of the major packages, firefox, is being distributed by Ubuntu with all such name/branding on. If a big distro like Ubuntu can do it, shouldn't the rest of us? And how does that work ... whats the difference between compiling it for me, compiling it for my dad, and compiling for you? This legal crap doesn't make any sense to me.
  10. VidaLinux seems to be dead, for about 2 years now. I'm guessing it used Anaconda as the installer, and I'm thinking that is likely the way to go. I don't even know if there are other options. Not downloaded the System Rescue CD, but I have the Gentoo LiveCD released back in Aug which I assume is pretty similar. It seems kinda KDE-heavy and it has some weird bugs that I'm surprised are there. Hitting the Windows key in Gnome is taking me to another virtual console and I have to switch back with Alt-F7 every time I hit the key. Of course, this is running in a VM, but Sabayon runs Gnome
  11. I'm getting the same problem on a brand-new install. I want to install both the radeon and fglrx drivers (in case I have problems and need to go back to the open-source, but the proprietary drivers work around other bugs in more important software that I NEED - lyx). Gentoo can switch between them with eselect right? And a version of fgrlx that works with 1.16 is already in "testing" just not yet downloadable from ATIs site (at least I can't find 'em). But archlinux has a package for it! How would one go about making ab ebuild for this and installing it? This would allow Xorg 1.16 a
  12. I'm thinking there are two ways to do this. A set of common installation types (server, desktop, workstation, etc). From there I can have customizable package list or not. Not having a customizable package list means that every package is customized and tested and working, optimized for that type of installation and it doesn't even need an installer ... its just a complete system it slams onto the system at once (not the most flexible, but I expect people to tune things after its installed anyway). Get it working, tarball it. Custom packages means I either need a set of USE flags that
  13. FYI - There is already a Llamasoft. Author of Llamatron, Jeff Minter (aka Yak) writes under the name and there is a corporate entity of the name. Besides, Disney might sue.
  14. I know I shouldn't be reply to olds posts ... my apologies, but ... are you saying Tux with a mullet? Business in the front, party in the back?
  15. Maybe tux flying on the back of a Microsoft dragon (with butterfly wings)?
  16. Ever need to know when a long emerge or some other command was finally finished after you went off and started something else? Well, here is a script you can add to your .bashrc (or source it from your .bashrc) to do exactly that. Due to some odd race behavior, it will be inactive until you use ls, cd, or n (n just activates it). This was necessary because your .bashrc finishes running before the terminal window actually displays on screen. If you use session management and your shell moves from one GUI window to another, the ls, cd, or n commands all ensure that the correct window is watc
  17. Thanks for the info, but I don't want a tar of an existing system as a huge tarball. Although I suppose that I could simply copy the entire system, then re-emerge it all with the new flags to force the rebuild. That may be the better way to do it. Would you happen to know the full list of emerge flags for "rebuild my whole system, every last package, because I change USE flags and CFLAGS?" command line would be. I'm thinking once I get it to my liking I'll build a set of binaries and then find some duct-tape and bailing wire to graft an installer and a liveCD/DVD into the mix.
  18. How can I reinstall my whole system, with new USE/CFLAGS, to a new partition/root? Basically, I want one set of USE/CFLAGS on one partition and another on the second, but all the packages the same and without going through a lot of manual configuration. Basically, I want to keep an optimized "just my hardware" install, and have a second one thats generic (or least any x86-64). I'm thinking that I should be able to untar the stage3 to the new partition, bind /usr/portage to the new root, chroot in and run emerge with whatever flags required to tell it to rebuild EVERYTHING (anyone know wh
  19. Drobbins. Something is very wrong with the universe. I keep agreeing with your decisions, goals, and even implementations. When I think, "there should be a way to do this better, maybe if ... " I suddenly see you are working on exactly that. I never agree with anyone about computers! So .. I used to use Gentoo aeons ago, and now that I've tried everything else all over again, its time to rejoin the fold and drink the Kool-aid. I actually trust you to do the right thing with the distro I have on my computer, and I don't trust anyone else ... maybe Linus.
  20. Yeah, I know what you are saying. There are millions of packages that could be installed. I'm thinking more along the lines of a "core set". The stuff that most people won't tweak much anyway. You have your system packages (how many people really care which syslog is used?), then Xorg, a desktop (likely binaries for Gnome, KDE, and XFCE), LibreOffice, and Firefox and/or Chromium, maybe Thunderbird and/or Evolution (personally, I don't like Evolution because it seems really slow to open my Inbox). Basically a set of "default" packages to get people up and running, and let the source handle
  21. OK, before you flame me, I know that Funtoo And Gentoo are "meta" distributions and a binary distro doesn't make sense. But, I would really like to see a Funtoo based distro that could be installed quickly (binary install, sane defaults, sets up portage, etc). Once you change anything (USE flags, etc), then access to any binary packages from the distro would be disallowed. The system should recommend compiling over using binaries for stability. The main goal is just to get the thing installed so you can get to work. The closest I've seen is Sabayon, but they've embraced systemd and th
