  1. Hello guys! It's been a while. I'm very interested in installing funtoo on my new desktop. I've got skylake goodness in there. I wanted to know, given that there wasn't any subarch for skylake, if I should just go generic, and then once the skylake subarch comes out, switch to whatever skylake will be, and do a: emerge -DuNav world Thanks for the feedback!
  2. For some reason it was giving me troubles with fglrx. I have been using radeon drivers for the past week. I am switching back to fglrx, just because I REALLY want some games to work correctly. :) If it fails, I think I'm going to do an "emerge -eav world". (Heading out to visit some friends anyway this weekend. so that should be done when I'm back.) If it doesn't work and am going to do just what you're recommending. Mask Gnome 3.14.
  3. I actually liked gnome 3. It was working fantastic on gnome 3.12 for myself. The latest upgrade to 14 made gnome-session not start up. http://forums.funtoo.org/index.php?/topic/267-gnome-314-doesnt-boot-i-suspect-cluttereglfglrx/&do=findComment&comment=1362 I am currently using mate, but I liked the window snapping, and was used to jumping from desktop to desktop from Gnome. Plus I also enjoyed the eyecandy. In the middle of writing this, I started to recompile gnome. Going to give it another stab. see what happens. :)
  4. Not sure if I should post this here or in the Funtoo bugs page, but, seems Dogecoin is at 1.6, and it should be at 1.8. http://www.reddit.com/r/dogecoin/comments/2egjqg/dogecoin_core_18_released_mandatory_upgrade/ I came across some Dogecoin recently, and wanted to place it in my wallet. I found the solution, and it was an upgrade. Let me know if I should post this in bugs. Thanks!
  5. Unfortunately getting the same error messages. :(
  6. *gbm sure thing. it currently is on there and I believe it was up when it was crashing, but not sure. I'll check if recompiling ati-drivers unchecks it, or if it still fails with the flag up.
  7. Cool! Thanks! Very much appreciated! :) On another note, I've really gotten the swing of Gnome 3, I thnk they've implemented some changes that make it slightly better to use, and I'm quite comfortable using it for my work and day to day purposes. Would suck to have to shop around for another D.E..
  8. No I didn't. There was a time, before funtoo got all the openrc stuff sorted, that I couldn't get into gnome, but that was a distrowide thing. I can't remember which version of gnome that was. I think there was also a moment last year, before the operc issue, where I was having driver issues as well. ATI drivers didn't play nice with gnome. I remember always getting black screen with gdm, or if I used slim to log into gnome, also getting a black screen. A couple of bugs were fixed, and the black screen stopped, but then there were issues with the windows. They wouldn't update, so it would
  9. I can confirm, this was definitely a fglrx/clutter issue. switching to radeon open source drivers fixed the solution. Although now 3d rendering sucks with my current card!
  10. I was thinking this was something I did wrong. But I think this is a greater issue. I did some searching and it seems it's a fglrx & clutter issue. Something to the effect that fglrx doesn't play nice with EGL. $ gnome-shell (gnome-shell:23142): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_strsplit: assertion 'string != NULL' failed (gnome-shell:23142): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to initialize Clutter: The OpenGL version could not be determined (gnome-shell:23142): mutter-ERROR **: Unable to initialize Clutter. let me know if you'd like any other additional information. I'm going to switch to radeon and u
  11. Thanks Oleg! After resync this worked for me!
  12. I've tried to emerge -av ati-drivers but I'm having a problem when doing this. I downloaded the files it expects given at these locations, and plop them in /usr/portage/distfiles Unfortunately it doesn't take. I'd blacklist whatever CONFIG_DRM is, but I don't know what module it is on load, but for some reason, given that there is no checksum being seen, I don't think it's CONFIG_DRM being the issue. Edit: am using debian binary sources if this info is needed Calculating dependencies... done! [ebuild U ] x11-drivers/ati-drivers-14.9-r1:1 [14.4_p1:1] USE="modules (multili
  13. Wow! A bit off topic but... Athon XP.... that's round 2003-ish processor if my mind doesn't fail me? 13 hours!? My old computer recently died, was the one my mom was using. Can't remember which one it was it definitely was an Athlon. The model number does ring a bell.
