  1. Hi fellows, Some time ago I was forced to abandon Funtoo to Gentoo as the KDE tree fell hopelessly behind. I did not have the time nor the funto-mirroring-know-how to get involved in the matter. I did try to use the ebuilds from Gentoo by that became a dependency nightmare. Quite a lot have changed in Funtoo since then. Recently there has been a general upgrade of the kde-plasma/plasma-meta and KDE was up to date for a while, but are no longer. Question is, will the status of KDE depend on once in a while heroic efforts or are Funtoo aiming to mirror either Gentoo or KDE trees so t
  2. Funny thing, I had the opposite problem. My upgrade failed because lack of support for python 3.6 so I had to remove it ahead of the instructions :) Cheers, Erik
  3. acct-group/* and acct-user/* is a gentoo effort to secure that system users and groups such as man, sshd, sddm etc have a predictable value. sshd shall allways be 22 for example. The problem is called GLEP 81. Those are introduces quite recently as action to a security report where the old way to create system users and groups was possible to abuse in harmful purposes. Read more at the gentoo forums: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1099864-highlight-acct.html I have no clue how funtoo will react on those but I imagine one either have to start patching ebuilds or include
  4. I realize this will have impact on core-ui-kit while I expect the xorg-kit will be fairly up to date as it is also used by Gnome.
  5. Hi, I am not a Gnone-user and Gnome have never appealed to me. I have been using KDE since like forever (at least since KDE3) and I'd like to continue using KDE. I also like to continue with Funtoo. Problem is that, as it seems, Funtoo seems to foucs on Gnome with less focus on KDE. Question is; can configure ego so that I use the very latest (well, at least a quite recent, right now KDE Plasma 5.17 ) version of the KDE-kit blended with the general stable Funtoo 1.4? Is there a way to say "hey, use whatever latest in this kit"? Or will I have to make an overlay based on the KDE
  6. Hi. I need some help setting up networking for my LXD containers. I have followed drobins guides on the wiki and they cover most everything except for networking. When I search and try the thing I find it goes wrong. The setup: On my server I have a physical interface eth0 with ip I like to create a LXD container that uses an own static IP on eth0 (.3) so that I can use it for SSH and web server accessible from inside the LAN. Naturally I want the container to be able to network out. I do NOT want NAT (I think). I do not intend to have a rproxy - I will map a unique
  7. bcowan, I was hoping for a reply like that ? Synced and all the Gnome/X11-stuff is gone. Worked like a charm. Thanks!
  8. Hi, Upgrading to latest kit 1.3 brings in a pam upgrade that in turn brings in a lot of X11 and some GNOME dependencies. This in on my server and I would prefer to not have X11 or gnome stuff installed. # epro show === Enabled Profiles: === arch: x86-64bit build: current subarch: intel64-sandybridge flavor: core mix-ins: (not set) === Python kit: === branch: 3.7-release === All inherited flavor from core flavor: === minimal (from core flavor) and: # emerge -vatDuU --with-bdeps y @world These
  9. Thanks for some good hands on tips lazlo.vii and the area is both as full of different advices as it is lacking good resources. When it comes to files systems I do BTRFS mostly but on the server I do ZFS. I once had problems with ZFS where I removal of a zfs from the pool messed things up. I solved it with a FreeBSD live-cd where I imported the pool, removed the zfs and exported the pool. It worked like a charm and since long the bug is fixed. I still have a "thing" for ZFS though and decided to go for it some time ago (I participated in another forum post here about ZFS some time ago).
  10. Hi, I have just purchased two second hand servers building my own Funtoo server cluster here at home. This was actually easier and not particular more expensive than locating motherboards and CPUs with working support for ECC for my ZFS file server. But I also found a second hand server suitable for application server and as the optical fibre is on its way pretty soon, I moved the servers to the basement, and Funtoo is now more suitable for server usage than before, there was just no reason why not to purchase ? I will come back to the specs in other posts. Right now it is ab

    Server with ECC

    So after some struggle I decided to repurpose the above configuration to something else. Major problems has been instability during load (i.e. mostly emerge) with the AMD-cpu and that although there is ECC-memory installed it will not utilize the ECC-function with this motherboard (verified with Asus support-tech). The answer is that ECC is not supported with this configuration. Instead I have purchased a second hand Supermicro 6027R-E1R12L based on Intel, with working ECC-functionality and hot-swap-slots for all my disks in the front. My first rack-server - a small step for mankind, an h
  12. Well, I though of Nike and just did it :) It wasn't even than hard (I think). Then I ran into the EAPI=7 problem instead and verified that it's not related to the python upgrade and it isn't. Now I have the upgrade on hold until portage is upgraded. Words will not express how much I adore the possibility to do upgrades in snapshots along side the live system!
  13. Gentoo have an upgrade guide: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Python#Version_upgrade. Doesn't seem that hard. Just recall having some trouble with portage failing at some point and then one are on trouble :) I will try that one. The entire upgrade is in a separate snapshot anyway so I am prepared if it fails. I will upgrade python 3 to python 3.6.
