    HP M29w help

    I rebuilt using libusb0 but I'm still having the same problem. Do I need any of the foomatic ebuilds in order for this to work? Printer-wise, I know I've got the following installed: hplip, cups, cups-filters Do I need hplip-plugin? Edit: I installed hplip-plugin and nothing seems to have changed with regards to my printing problems.

    HP M29w help

    I've got a new HP LaserJet Pro MFP M29w that I can't get to print. net-print/hplip-3.20.11::desktop-kit was built with the following: USE="X hpcups hpijs libnotify qt5 scanner snmp -doc -fax -kde -libressl -libusb0 -minimal -parport -policykit -static-ppds" PYTHON_SINGLE_TARGET="python3_7 -python2_7 -python3_8 -python3_9" PYTHON_TARGETS="python3_7 -python2_7 -python3_8 -python3_9" FEATURES="assume-digests binpkg-docompress binpkg-dostrip binpkg-logs buildpkg config-protect-if-modified distlocks ebuild-locks fixlafiles ipc-sandbox merge-sync multilib-strict network-sandbox news parallel-fe
  3. On one of my systems, any attempt to emerge a package hangs when it gets to "checking ## files for package collisions". There is no output to help me figure out where the problem lies. Can anybody suggest where I should start looking? What utility is used for this "checking..." operation?
  4. In my case I was getting "filter failed" in error.log, so your case seems to be a little different than mine. Anyway, I never solved my issue and instead installed a 32-bit Devuan virtual machine, running on my Funtoo host, and made that my print server. The Brother drivers worked fine there. Here are some of my notes from setting up the VM: https://forums.funtoo.org/topic/4469-starting-a-qemu-virtual-machine-at-boot/
  5. You can get more logging out of cups by making this change to cupsd.conf: replace LogLevel warn with LogLevel debug There's also a debug2, which is probably overkill.
  6. I'm still interested to know if there's a way to do it with just qemu, but here's how to do it using libvirt: 1) Install and run libvirt emerge -a libvirt virt-manager rc-update add libvirtd default /etc/init.d/libvirtd start 2) Import the qemu disk into libvirt. virt-install --name vmname --memory 1024 --disk /path/to/disk.qcow2 --import After the import, the vm will be powered on. Note that this can also be done in the gui, virt-manager. 3) Tell libvirt to automatically start the vm. virsh autostart vmname This creates a symbolic link in /etc/libvirt/qe
  7. I created a virtual machine using qemu. What's the proper way to automatically start it at boot time, and stop it at shutdown? Do I need to use libvirt for this? If so, how do I make libvirt aware of my existing qemu image?
  8. For a while now I haven't been able to print to my Brother DCP-7065dn printer. It used to work. I've got net-print/brother-dcp-7065dn-drivers installed. I've also tried re-installing it. One thing I notice is that all binaries in /usr/local/Brother/Printer/DCP7065DN are 32-bit. Should these work on my Funtoo 1.4 system? I've set cups logging to "debug", but haven't gotten anything useful out of the logs.
  9. Thanks bcowan, I had already tried that and the situation didn't improve. As it turns out, as long as I used '--backtrack=30' for every emerge operation, it worked ok. On one of my previous upgrades, that didn't help so on this one I didn't try it right away. But I will from now on!
  10. Adding '--backtrack=30' fixed this. emerge --backtrack=30 --jobs=3 -u =dev-lang/python-3.7* But now I'm getting similar conflicts when running the next step, ' emerge -auDN --backtrack=30 @world --jobs=3 --exclude dev-lang/perl'. Any suggestions on how to handle these types of conflicts in general would be appreciated.

  12. I've upgraded 3 systems from 1.3 to 1.4, and each one has caused me major headaches. I'm on my fourth one now, and figured it's time to ask for help. I'm following the instructions here, and I'm up to the point of upgrading python: https://www.funtoo.org/Upgrade_Instructions/1.4-release # emerge -u =dev-lang/python-3.7* Connected to xxxxxxxxx
  13. Thanks Cardinal. The Follow button is white until you are actually following. I still think it's a good idea to give some other type of notification of upgrades, although it is a little less critical for me now that I'm following News and Announcements per your suggestion. For instance, Ubuntu utilizes motd to let you know when you log in at the CLI that a release upgrade is available. Following News and Announcements isn't exactly going to fill my inbox, but it does contain a wide variety of news. For instance, "Funtoo 1.4 is released" and "Funtoo is now on Discord" have signifi
  14. I don't frequent the forum, and this is the second or third time now that a big upgrade was made available that I didn't know about. The first time I went for months without any package updates because I didn't know I had to upgrade to a newer Funtoo version. I would like to suggest that a notification of available upgrade be presented when running 'ego sync' or 'emerge @world'. The notification should tell the sysadmin that there's a newer Funtoo version available, and the date it was made available (so the sysadmin will know how mature the upgrade is and also how out of date he is).
