    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.
  11. # eselect python list Available Python interpreters, in order of preference: [1] python3.6 [2] python2.7 (fallback)
  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).
  15. When I upgrade to 1.4, I'm instructed to use a gfxcard mix-in. If I do that, should I remove the VIDEO_CARDS line from make.conf?
  16. An upgrade to sssd 1.16.3 today fixed the problem.
  17. After upgrading per the instructions here: https://www.funtoo.org/Upgrade_Instructions sssd will not start, and that prevents me from logging in with any LDAP user. I get the following error: failed to get [krb5_rcache_dir] from [config/sssd] It looks like as part of that upgrade, sssd went from version 1.12.1 to 1.13.1. I think ldb is used by sssd, and that went from version 1.3.5 to 1.4.2. sssd also requires tdb, and that was upgraded from 1.3.15 to 1.3.16. The error message indicates it may be a kerberos problem, but I am not using kerberos for authentication (at le
  18. https://www.funtoo.org/Upgrade_Instructions The upgrade instructions say that after upgrading gcc (I went from 5.4.0 to 7.3.1): "For upgrading to 1.2, you have to rebuild all packages, which will ensure that your system is fully optimized with the new gcc." Before I do this, I want to make sure it is really necessary. I did not change my subarch (something which was covered in those upgrade instructions). I am staying with "generic_64". So do I still need to rebuild all the packages on my system?
  19. Sound in firefox-bin recently stopped working for me. It gives me a message that I may need to install pulseaudio, but pulseaudio is already installed. Is there some new setting or use flag that's needed to make this work? Sound was working fine for me up until a couple weeks ago. Sound works for all my other applications.
  20. Thanks palica. I never considered that they were supposed to look like that. The gray icons look an awful lot like "unavailable" grayed-out items.
  21. After a recent upgrade, gimp's icons have lost all their color. See attached screenshot. $ emerge --info gimp ... media-gfx/gimp-2.9.6::media-kit was built with the following: USE="alsa jpeg2k pdf python udev webp wmf -aalib (-altivec) (-aqua) -debug -doc -gnome -mng -openexr -postscript -smp -test -vector-icons -xpm" CPU_FLAGS_X86="mmx sse" LINGUAS="-am -ar -ast -az -be -bg -br -ca -ca@valencia -cs -csb -da -de -dz -el -en_CA -en_GB -eo -es -et -eu -fa -fi -fr -ga -gl -gu -he -hi -hr -hu -id -is -it -ja -ka -kk -km -kn -ko -lt -lv -mk -ml -ms -my -nb -nds -ne -nl -nn -oc -pa -pl -pt -pt_
  22. I have a funtoo server that does all the package builds, and my other servers and desktops specify 'getbinpkg' in order to use the packages created by the primary server. This mostly works, but I often get messages like "The following binary packages have been ignored due to changed dependencies". Here is an example. On my laptop, when emerging @world, I get the following message and nothing gets emerged (all other packages have been brought up to date): !!! The following binary packages have been ignored due to changed dependencies: dev-lang/vala-0.28.1::gentoo NOTE: The --b
  23. Thanks dhudson, that's exactly what I was looking for.
  24. How can I find out which installed package satisfies the requirements of a virtual package. For instance, my system has virtual/cron installed.
