    AdiosKid reacted to drobbins in Up-to-date LXD documentation now on wiki   
    Please check out https://www.funtoo.org/LXD -- I have begun rewriting this page to give everyone a tutorial-style introduction to LXD and to guide you through the process of setting it up. I have tested these steps myself and it should ensure a fairly pain-free setup of LXD. Note that the second half of the page isn't rewritten yet (Starting with the "features" section) but the top half is.

    AdiosKid reacted to drobbins in 1.4-release efforts starting   
    I have just started getting kit-fixups ready for 1.4-release development. Some key changes that are coming in 1.4-release:
    move away from eselect opengl and to libglvnd. official support of container-based solution for steam, etc. updates to pam and pambase 1.4-release will be tracking "current" gentoo for a while and will freeze sometime this summer, likely in June 2019. If you want to get involved, chat on #funtoo and look at the latest commits to kit-fixups on code.funtoo.org. I'll also be doing some introductory videos on how to get involved with the new release of Funtoo.

    AdiosKid reacted to drobbins in debian-sources-lts-4.9.161_p1 available for testing   
    @bcowan has made our day better with a new debian-sources-4.9.161_p1 ebuild which is available for testing, but currently package-masked so it doesn't install by default. To get emerge to see it, add the following to /etc/portage/package.keywords:
    =sys-kernel/debian-sources-lts-4.9.161_p1 ** Then do:
    # emerge debian-sources-lts # ego boot update # reboot Please report any bugs or issues to https://bugs.funtoo.org. Thanks ?

    AdiosKid reacted to drobbins in New debian-sources-lts kernel with new Intel ethernet support   
    Hey Everyone,
    I've gone ahead and patched debian-sources-lts so that we have support for the latest Intel e1000e Ethernet chipsets. I ported an updated driver from 4.20/5.x into the new 4.9.144_p3-r1 ebuild. My Intel Core i7 8700-based system is now happily using its on-board Ethernet rather than needing a USB-based Ethernet dongle.
    Enjoy the kernel and also be sure to report any hardware compatibility issues that may be impacting you and preventing you from using debian-sources-lts to bugs.funtoo.org. I can always look into porting updated drivers to get this kernel working better for you.

    I still have had no issues running with flatpak. I use it for anything that's a dependency nightmare, thanks for the feedback though.

    AdiosKid reacted to drobbins in funtoo 1.3 arm-32bit and arm-64bit builds now available   
    arm-32bit and arm-64bit builds of Funtoo Linux 1.3 are now available. Search for "arm" on this page using the search field right above the table to see them:
    Enjoy. Also note that we could use some help with updating install docs for raspberry pis as well as odroid-xu4, which I hear now should run fine with our debian-sources-lts? If you look at our odroid-xu4 page here, you'll see that at the top we link to an install guide specific to this board. I'd like to have docs like this for all the raspis as well:

    AdiosKid reacted to konspiracy in Opinion* Best way to run Steam?   
    I just wanted to reach out and say I have installed Steam using flatpak about 2 months ago and I have had zero issues. I know there is away of setting up an overlay and chrooting into a 32bit kernel but that seemed like way to much work. Performance has been fantastic, and even the new proton layer they have been working on seems to chug right along. If you have any questions or if you think maybe there is a a better way of accomplishing this task please let me know.

    AdiosKid got a reaction from lycaeum in Bentōō (An user-friendly Stage4 of Funtoo Linux.)   
    Hi folks O/
    few years ago I wonder about a friendly version of Gentoo and Funtoo, the gentoo community don't liked, but I keep did some tests but I didn't continue, well, few week ago I start again, but this time only a Funtoo Friendly version, and now I have something really beginning.
    the project will resume in few flavors and one version with a overlay with update packages and few extra.
    the funtoo flavors are X+openbox, gnome and Plasma, they are just the Funtoo Stage3 Generic with few packages and some configuration.
    and has one version with plasma, but with an overlay with few update packages and other stuffs, a stage more out of the box, I want make something to people learn about gentoo/funtoo or for who use the system without spent hours to build the system. 

    the webiste will be done in the next weeks, and the stages will be available in the next days "sorry, I'm with one pc now, and the net is a turtle".

    website -> https://bentoo.info/
    binhost -> http://binhost.bentoo.info

    github repos : 
    overlay -> https://github.com/lucascouts/bentoo

    configurations -> https://github.com/lucascouts/bentoo-cfg

    I don't know if the funtoo community will like but anyway I'll forward with this project, but will be great if few users could help with feedback or criticisms.

    thank you anyway ?

    AdiosKid reacted to drobbins in IMPORTANT: 1.3-release to BETA and removal of multilib   
    Hi All,
    Within 12 hours, I plan to move 1.3-release to BETA status.
    Along with this comes the very important change on 64-bit platforms -- I am removing multilib and making "pure64" compatibility the default. This means that 1.3-release builds with the x86-64bit arch will be 64-bit only.
    This is done for a variety of reasons, most important of which is that the world has had a 64-bit PC instruction set for approximately 15 years. It is time to drop 32-bit support. For those who still need 32-bit support, it will be available via a Funtoo 32-bit chroot setup.
    The story behind multilib is rather complex and interesting, and might be the focus of a future blog post, but for now, you will just have to trust me -- multilib support in Gentoo is a pain in the butt. It takes a lot of effort to work with and slows us down. Our efforts are best spent in other places, and chroot should work for the vast majority of users who truly are running a critical 32-bit application (other options are 32-bit containers, etc.)

    AdiosKid reacted to drobbins in Wiki Improvements   
    Hello Everyone --
    I want to highlight some improvements that have been made to the wiki besides our new FAQ (https://www.funtoo.org/FAQ)
    We now have a new Subarches page that is a lot easier to navigate: https://www.funtoo.org/Subarches
    And the look of various things like notes, tips, warnings, etc. have been improved for a cleaner, more consistent look. This is a good sample page to browse the new look. Note that you may need to "hard reload" the page to get the new CSS: https://www.funtoo.org/Upgrade_Instructions
