  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 192.168.1.2. 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.

    ZFS Mountpoints

    A bite late but thanx! New server (the one with ECC) installed, just booted into ZFS for the first time using this post. It solves quite a few hesitations I used to have :) Boot args I use is; root=ZFS=rootpool/funtoo/root ro boot=zfs net.ifnames=0 I prefer not to import all pools at boot time, if the pool contains an exported FS it must be imported after networking and nsf is started or it fails to share correctly (or rather; this used to be a problem). As of now this is only the server. Pools is to created tomorrow, 8TB is to moved to backup before it is restor

    Server with ECC

    I am planning to upgrade my good old server that has been around for some time now. Mostly it is a NAS with 4*4TB disks in a BTRFS RAID 10 array for now. I have since logn used both ZFS and BTRFS and regardless of choice it seems to be a consensus that one shall use ECC memory to prevent that the calculated check sums are faulty. I have non-ecc today and I have experienced degradation of the content. ECC is new territory for me and I have a few questions; 1. On my desk is a ASUS Prime X370-PRO mother board. The specs say "DDR4 ECC or NON-ECC memory, unbufferd". While check out s
  18. Perhaps linux-firmware ought to be a runtime dependency to those packages that needs it to work properly. I figure the radeon drivers in this case. // Erik
  19. A while ago, around the upgrade, I also had to replace the cpu water cooler and moved my graphics card to the other PCI slot. I now took down the computer and moved it back and things are back to normal. Don't have a clue why this works but hey, it works. I have a Asus Prime Z370-P motherboard and a fan-less Pallit GTX 1050 Ti graphics card. Anyhow, case closed :)
  20. Hi, After the upgrade to 1.2 I have trouble recovering from sleep. It seems related to the nvidia-drivers but I am not sure. I run KDE and use sleep during nights. It have worked pretty well for quite some time. I have a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics-card and are using nvidia-drivers. I have tried recovering from sleep with and without xdm started and I never seems to be able to recover, the screen is blank and unresponsive. Even without X the terminal is blank. When X is started during sleep-wakeup the X process runs on 100% CPU but nothing happens. I can login via ssh but it fa
  21. I have always had strangularities with Clementine. One thing is that it has never been possible to terminate it properly as it have always left an orphan icon in the docking bar. I recall having experienced the same problem as you mention here, have to start it twice but I am not sure and I donät have that problem right now. I also think that it worked properly with a new user (I started to use a second logged in work user instead of kde-activity) where I recall this never happened. Try creating a new user and see what happens. I never started clementine in a shell but firefox is qu
  22. Cool, I am always hesitant to get started with updated unless there is a snapshot available to role back to. Or even better a snapshot to make the upgrade in until it is successful.
  23. Just to clarify, will I be able to make snapshots of / from within my container or the management console?
  24. Well, it is more fun to put an effort in understanding why this does not work if I am not alone the same problem :) Besides, I learned a lot so far. One thign I learned is the importance of having a well defined and clean testing environment. In Funtoo/Gentoo this includes the USE-flag settings. And as you asked for my USE_flags I realized that I did some fidling with elogind and gave it up, removed the elogind USE-flag but never rebuilt or ran emerge -a --depclean to clean out. So that I think have happened during the long thread is that I have had both consolekit and elogind runnin
  25. Sorry Sandro, I didn't know how familiar you are with Linux and Funtoo. To get it to work is fairly simple (at least on my machine) but there is one thing you need to do every time you boot. I normally keep my computer in sleep to RAM and rarely reboots so it is no effort for me. What you can try is the following: Allow the boot to complete and SDM to show. Before you login, press CTRL-ALT-F2 and you will have a text prompt offer to login. The do the following: Login as root. Add the following commands: # /etc/init.d/xdm stop # /etc/init.d/consolekit restart # /etc/ini
