  1. You should try Dantrell's overlay. Here's the link, https://github.com/dantrell/gentoo-project-gnome-without-systemd
  2. I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to portage, but I'd actually recommend avoiding funtoo profiles if you want a light install. I think they only modify your USE flags and possibly unmask a few packages. When I used profiles I found a few USE flags that I didn't need; the X11 mix-in mix in bought in support for joysticks and other uncommon hardware. I just glance over a few of the possible flags for packages and add the ones I think I need to my make.conf. Again, I know very little about portage and there's a very good chance that what I just said is wrong... Also, I'd recom
  3. Thanks for the help, guys. For anyone else reading this, I had to do what Oleg suggested and edit /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf to say either dhcp=internal or dhcp=dhclient (it was in the bug report). I'm finally able to post while booted into funtoo :D :D :D :D
  4. Whenever I boot into funtoo, my wifi will only connect for about 2 seconds until losing connection and reconnecting, but I haven't had that problem on the other network I've connected to. Just so you know, I have the problem no matter how strong my signal is. I'm using networkmanager to manage my connections, and I havent edited any config files regarding networking, and my wifi card is a "Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)" My home wifi has the interface wlp5s0, and is encrypted with a wpa psk passphrase. My network supplier is Uverse, if that's any use to
  5. This could be happening due to your ~/.xinitrc not being configured correctly. X11-apps/xdm was probably bought in by xorg-x11, run rc-update add xdm default to start it on boot. Try starting x11 or any other de you've installed and you might have a bit more luck.
  6. I oneshotted speex, and the compile worked. I was given a lot of errors, but the compile seemed to work. Can someone tell me if these are bad? There were many similar errors, and the compile took a very long time.
  7. I just switched to funtoo, and I'm curious about the repository differences. What I've heard is that the funtoo repository is similar to the gentoo testing repository, but it uses more stable internals. How bleeding edge is the funtoo repository compared to gentoo testing? What counts as an internal package, is it any command-line utility, or system-vital packages? And finally, how up to date are the internal packages when compared to, say, gentoo stable?
  8. When I try to run the ./configure command, it fails after checking things. The last 2 lines are checking for LIBSPEEX... no configure: error: *** speex support not found When I remove --with-speex, I am told that I should always use speex support. And here is the rest of the relevant info: The output of emerge -pqv '=media-sound/pulseaudio-5.99.3-r1': My build log at /var/tmp/portage/media-sound/pulseaudio-5.99.3-r1/temp/build.log: And my ebuild environment at /var/tmp/portage/media-sound/pulseaudio-5.99.3-r1/temp/environment:
  9. To anybody else seeing this, the problem has been fixed. If you're still having problems it should work after an emerge --sync.
  10. Oh. I forgot... Here it is: Anyone who scrolled through all that deserves my respect I haven't ever had to post something like this before so just tell me if you need anything else
  11. When I run the command portage tries to install pulseaudio like normal... And how is pulseaudio enabled globally, is it because you're using the desktop flavor?
  12. I got the same errors after running those commands. :( When I try to compile without pulseaudio support, portage tells me that gnome requires the pulseaudio USE flag. If you're trying to install gnome too, there was a bugfix last night that fixed some problems with the installation of spidermonkey (https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-2642).
  13. I have been struggling to install gnome for a while now. There was a recent bugfix that was fixed a problem with the spidermonkey installation, but now I'm running into problems with pulseaudio. Whenever I try to emerge it, I get the following errors just after compilation starts: Here is the output of the emerge --info '=blah blah blah':
  14. For me they're trying to write the same file. I'm fairly new to porrage, is there any way to force slotting?
  15. The rule for swap space used to be that you needed twice your ram, but with 2 gigabytes you can have less. I am currently following that rule although I have 8 gigabytes. It may seem a bit overkill, but considering how large hard drives are nowadays, it's not like I'm going to run out of space anytime soon. Even if you only have a 50 gigabyte hardvdrive, I'd recommend following the twice your ram rule, because that way you know that you will have more than enough swap space, and you would be using less than a tenth of your storage space.
