    I installed the latest Bentoo iso (v0.10) . All went quite well, installer needs some polish, like the slides shown but the result worked.

    My touchpad did not work during in the live environment but did after install. I wanted to install debian-sources by doing USE="binary" emerge debian-sources but it complained about several packages blocking it and it referenced to kde stuff.

    Also the lightdm started and was set to boot a kde-session. So I added gdm, switched to it and selected gnome. Smooth. There is a hplip system tray missing error after 30sec or so but overall I got a funtoo up and running in almost no time, thanks!

    How should I upgrade my kernel on bentoo? 5.2.17 is installed now and already has some vulnerabilities.

    Please, join on telegram group is more faster to help you.



  2. Hi folks.

    now we have a livecd iso and an installer with calamares, both need some improvement but already work, I would like fix and improve better, but I need some help with the feedback.


    so, who could test, even in a vm, please give the feedback, about something to add, remove or change.


    here the site => http://bentoo.info

    ISO => https://sourceforge.net/projects/bentoo/

    binaries and ISO => https://binhost.bentoo.info/

    Also note that @temptorsent has rewritten all the nvidia ebuilds from scratch, and we're going to use these improved ebuilds as a basis for steam support. We're trying to launch the beta of these drivers today. I'll be testing to make sure that containers pick up and properly use the 32-bit nvidia libs that are required for GPU acceleration to work with steam.

    I saw the package on github, I'll test soon possible.

    From Version 6, released Feb 2 2019, SysrescCD is based on Arch Linux.  This doesn't necessarily mean we can't still use it as a liveCD or rescue cd in most cases, except I found a corner case where it doesn't work.  I happen to run several systems with encrypted LVM as described here.  I had the root volume on one system that needed an fsck journal repair.  I tried to decrpyt it with the lastest sysresccd and found that the cryptsetup/lvm in the sysresccd 6.0.2 could not see my unencrypted volumes.  I rebooted with the last gentoo based sysresccd, 5.3.2 from Nov 2018 and it worked no problem.  It may be that the arch linux kernel doesn't include as many cipher options the older gentoo based kernel as my partition is encrypted with the twofish-xts-plain64 cipher.

    There are some other changes that may make sysresccd less desirable as the default install livecd.  

    • no longer fits on an actual CD making the name sort of anachronistic.  I realize most people, myself included, put it on a 1-2GB usb stick instead, but it seems to needlessly foreclose on some older systems.
    • no more 32 bit support.  May not be a problem if funtoo is also dropping 32 bit support.
    • now inits with systemd instead of openrc, not sure if that would matter once chrooted during install, but maybe.  

    As time goes on the last gentoo based sysresccd is going to be pretty dated.  Is there a way to engineer metro to build livecds or something?  

    Use the Area31 Funtoo livecd -> https://area31.net.br/wiki/LiveCD_oficial


    is funtoo 1.3 based, we don't need gentoo based livecd anymore.
