  1. I see that crossdev is no longer supported. I did try different ideas shown on misc funtoo sites but nothing works. There is no apparent problem for RPI. I was able to create a stage4 from scratch on gentoo and got it booting and working nicely on the Beagle V Beta. I can understand that fchroot is the best approach to compile packages for a slow target but it is completely useless if you do not have anything to chroot on. What is the alternative for the creation of a stage3 and 4 when there is nothing available for a particular processor? Is it possible to crea
  2. I wanted to create a stage3 for the BeagleV which uses a riscv64 but couldn't get crossdev to create the cross compiler. I was able to do that on gentoo as well as create the whole stage3. I am also able to chroot into in using fchroot. I am then able to emerge programs in the chroot I used the cross compiler to do the whole thing. riscv64-unknown-linux-gnu-emerge --ask @system and add a few extra program like my favorite editor joe I had to change one line for the ebuild to get it to work on gentoo PYTHON_COMPAT=( python3+ ) to PYTHON_COMPAT=( python3_{
  3. I would like to create a boot disk for the BeagleV. Where is the documentation for creating the misc funtoo stages? I haven't seen any funtoo stages for riscv64 , perhaps I didn't look at the right places. I found a stage3 for gentoo, are there any instruction on what needs to be changed to make it a stage 3 funtoo? Michel
  4. I was making an update on a beagleboard X15 (AM5729 Processor from TI) and got a certificate not valid message suzie ~ # emerge -uavDN @world These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies... done!

  5. I don't travel much anymore beside going to Québec. I do have a lot of family there. With 6 brothers and 6 sisters, that makes a lot of nephews and nieces and their kids. And my uncles and aunts also had a lot of kids, most cousins are in Québec and Vermont. My stay in Montréal was brief in the late 60s. When the Canadian military occupied Montréal I became very bitter toward the Canadian government after being subjected to police abuses. I went to Ontario to learn English. I then came back to Québec in Trois Rivières to go to college and university. I eventually moved to Michi
  6. The problem was the FEATURE userfetch, when I took it out it got a bit farther. It gives bunch of errors due to conflict with gnome, I may have forgot to set the kit for mate. I have ran a world update and didn't have any such errors. I am using the version 1.4 for my arm boards. localhost / # emerge firefox Calculating dependencies /Unable to configure loopback interface: Operation not supported -Unable to configure loopback interface: Operation not supported \Unable to configure loopback interface: Operation not supported -Unable to configure loopback interface: O
  7. I have several reason to prefer my own kernel. The zen kernel appears to work better for my ryzen 2700x board. One main interest for me with kernel 5.4 is the support for J1939. Intrepics has a kernel module for their devices so I won't have to run windows to do my J1939 tests. I plan to port my Funtoo on the Beagleboard AI to kernel 5.4, TI finally has one that support their devices, probably buggy ... They have some issues with their server lately, their git server often point to an internal server. As for security it is not an issue for me, I know what to check. Quick note, I
  8. The rootfs I use is a modified version of the stage3 I published on my website for the Beagleboard X15 (I also published one for the beaglebone AI) I wanted to check it out, I can compile files easily on those boards, the idea is to create one for the PocketBeagle. I have designed several boards for the PocketBeagle and RPI-0 which I haven't received yet due to the virus in China. For curiosity I tried to emerge Chromium and Firefox and it fails for both. The message given doesn't give me clues on a solution I gave a ctrl C to end the infinite loop (chroot) localhost

  10. Interesting item about gcc. I've had a few issues trying to compile spidermonkey on the odroid N2. It took hours and tons of crashes. I had enabled the mix-ins for plasma which brought in that program that would not compile. I am not sure if it was compiled cleanly, anyhow it installed which enabled the rest to compile. What exactly does that buggy software do? Why is it required to get plasma support? I am not a big fan of gnome 3 so my only choice left appears to be kde. The goal is to have a decent desktop on wayland, a friend told me that I could setup kde to look just like my mac so
  11. I have added info for using the same stage3 for the Beagleboard X15. You just need to add the missing device tree files. It uses the u-boot and kernel from digi-key eewiki which doesn't seem to support EGL from imagination When I get some time I will update it with one that does, beagleboard group seems to only want free stuff. The problem like with most arm board, if you only want that you are giving up on all the power of the video processors. I have been busy with my odroid boards so it will take a few weeks before I implement that. Note that if you use the free dri
  12. I have two Corsair coolers, an H110i and H115i PRO. I was thinking that my H110i was on the way out because it makes so much noise so I got an H115i PRO. As I read on the net, this one may just be just as loud. Apparently you need to run some windows software to run this. Is it possible to run this from Virtual Box? Better yet, is there some software for Linux that I can install? I used to have a few systems on my linux computer, gentoo, funtoo, fedora, SuSE, Arch Linux, Mint, Ubuntu and Debian. Now I only have Funtoo and use the space on the other hard disks fo
  13. How do I set funtoo so I would be able to run 32 bit arm applications on 64 bit arm OS? Target is Odroid N2. Michel
  14. I have published on my web site a Stage3 for Funtoo for the BeagleBone-AI, the AI stands for Artificial Intelligence. This board uses an AM5729 processor which is similar to the DRA752 and AM5728. The main difference with the AM5728 is the added coprocessor that is used for artificial intelligence It has a similar connector to the one from the beaglebone black. I use the kernel 4.14.108-ti-r114, I compiled it with the Linaro compiler as done on EEWIKI because it won't compile with the Funtoo gcc 9.1.1 I had no problem compiling u-boot with the funtoo gcc I w
