    AdiosKid reacted to drobbins in New ebuild: turbovnc   
    Hi All, 
    I have just committed net-misc/turbovnc to the Funtoo tree. Turbo VNC is a very good VNC (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Network_Computing) client and server. As a client, it will allow you to connect to remote systems and is very fast and feature-rich, with a ton of security options. As a server, it integrates with X and supports VirtualGL. VirtualGL is functionality that overcomes some inherent limitations of VNC, which traditionally does not support OpenGL or forces applications to use non-hardware rendering. With VirtualGL, you can remotely access a Funtoo system with hardware-accelerated OpenGL and benefit from its GPU (graphics will render on the remote system using hardware acceleration and then the rendered images will be transmitted to your client.) Learn more about VirtualGL here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VirtualGL
    As a client, I've found turbovnc to be significantly faster than tigervnc, and the client has a lot of very useful configuration options -- see screenshots below.
    Please give the ebuild a try and let me know how it works for you.

    It looks like you have your /etc/portage/repos.conf symlinked to /var/git/meta-repo/repos.conf.
    try:
    rm /etc/portage/repos.conf rm /var/git/meta-repo/repos.conf/funtoo mkdir /etc/portage/repos.conf/ ln -s /var/git/meta-repo/repos.conf /etc/portage/repos.conf/funtoo for f in /var/git/meta-repo/repos.conf/*.conf; do mv "$f" /etc/portage/repos.conf/; done

    Ego-2.2.1 has been released. This release includes fixes for the accuracy of information shown by "ego kit list", a helpful informational message at the end of the "ego kit" commands, and some minor unit test improvements.

    AdiosKid reacted to drobbins in Evaluating Funtoo - questions   
    I think the answer will vary depending on the person, but I can tell you about how I set up my workstation (laptop, Thinkpad W541). Generally, I want to set things up and have a stable, productive system since I need to be able to potentially leave my home office at a moment's notice and go somewhere... and my laptop needs to work. So I use the standard kits along with gnome-3.20, and now I have xorg 1.19-prime and 3.6-prime of python-kit running. I use debian-sources because it just plan works and I have no time to play with kernels (or need to).

    I might reinstall every 3-6 months, just to test the installation process, but this is generally not necessary unless you really *want* to. The apps I use the most are google chrome, hangouts, JetBrains pycharm (Java IDE), git. I have cups set up so I can print. I have a small set of python modules installed from packages to support my development work.

    AdiosKid reacted to drobbins in A multitude of new kits...   
    Hi all,
    A multitude of new kits are coming your way. I'll give you a list of what they are and share other kit-related updates with you.
    The new kits you'll be seeing soon are: ruby-kit, haskell-kit, ml-lang-kit, lisp-scheme-kit, and xfce-kit. With the exception of xfce-kit, these kits are all essentially sub-kits of dev-kit (and now have their own kit, just to try to pare down dev-kit a bit.) xfce-kit is for the XFCE 4.12 desktop environment.
    In addition, we have snapshotted/frozen the following kits: *java-kit*, ruby-kit, haskell-kit, ml-lang-kit, lisp-scheme-kit, *dev-kit*, xfce-kit and *desktop-kit*. Note that the kits in red are ones that previously following gentoo-current, and are now snapshotted as of today (Oct 22). The other kits listed are the new kits.
    With this wave of new kits, I am pushing forward the kit paradigm. With additional snapshotting of previously 'current' kits, I am putting funtoo's developer focus on getting the new 1.1-prime core-kit, media-kit and friends truly ready for production. The goal is to shift major updates to that they come via kit upgrades rather than a trickle of new package updates.
    What should you expect over the rest of the year? Expect further stabilization of our now-snapshotted kits. Also, when PHP 7.2.0 is released, expect a php-kit that will be snapshotted at 7.2-prime rather than following current as it does now. You should also expect to see a new generation of kits made available so you can select more recent packages. Also on the radar are automated features to help switch kits cleanly -- think of these as things like perl-cleaner and friends but that get automatically triggered when you switch kits to ensure a smooth transition. And yes, you will likely see a few more kits added to the mix, along with new ego features.
    With these new kits, the kit paradigm has been further advanced and will continue to advance. Along the way, you may feel that Funtoo Linux updates are getting 'stuck' or not going as quickly as you like, due to kits being frozen. If this impacts you, please provide us with feedback so we are aware of what things you need updated and why -- and understand that the pause in version bumps is more of a temporary phenomenon rather than a permanent reality. The updates will come -- in the form of kit bumps! The adjustment of our dev process will happen, and soon will reap rewards by offering stability as well as the latest ebuilds for you to choose from.
    Please feel free to share your questions and concerns on this thread.
    Best Regards,
    Daniel

    Also, in addition, I'm no longer updating master on the following kits: core-kit, security-kit, xorg-kit, gnome-kit, kde-kit, media-kit, perl-kit, python-kit. I made this change to reduce the clock time required to update our kits.

    AdiosKid reacted to drobbins in Welcome to the new forums!   
    I just fixed login-related issues. Funtoo users who had not used the forums before were unable to log in.
    I've also fixed the password reset link to go to our official password reset page, as well as the create account link. So logins should be working well.
    One note is that if you were are user of the old forums, and you changed your 'displayname' to show something other than your username, then your forums account username will be your displayname. You can alternatively try logging in with your email as your username instead.
    Everyone else should be good to go using their funtoo username (and password, of course) to log in here.

    Hey all, welcome to the new forums! Our old forum software has been upgraded to the latest version and I'm going to be working hard to help make this a really great resource for everyone.
    Our "Funtoo Universe" section is set up in a traditional forum style, and "Help Central" is now in a Q&A-style mode. Let me know how you like the Q&A style mode. Both sets of forums allow you to tag posts as being answered and we have the ability to flag the best answer.

    AdiosKid reacted to drobbins in ego-2.2.0 released   
    Hi All,
    ego-2.2.0 has been released, and is an important update, and will be appearing in meta-repo soon.
    New functionality has been added to help you view kit configuration. To view your current kit settings, type:
    # ego kit status This will display your current kit settings, as well as their stability level. The stability level is set by Funtoo and lets you know if you are running something we consider 'stable' or not. We recommend that all our users use kits that have a 'prime' stability level. Note that this is different than the kit having 'prime' in its name! When I create a kit, I may call it 1.1-prime if the goal is to make it production-quality, but the moment it is created, it is still considered 'dev' (developers only) status. Type "man ego-kit" for more information on this.
    It is now also possible to view a similar listing, but one that displays ALL available kits and their stability levels, by typing:
    # ego kit list This new release of ego also includes a host of other improvements, such as improvements to the "ego doc" MediaWiki parser.
    Enjoy, Daniel

    AdiosKid reacted to Oleg Vinichenko in downgrade to portage-2.3.8: Default distfiles and packages directories are now in /var/cache/portage   
    right, you can move the content of /usr/portage/distfiles into the new location /var/cache/portage/distfiles if the download is the concern (tarballs need to be refetched), other wise you shouldn't be much worry about it and delete old directories. eclean will work with the new location, then.

    AdiosKid reacted to AdiosKid in gcc upgrade   
    hi folks, 
     
    I'm in new installation and I'm follow that guide about upgrade gcc : https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Upgrading_GCC 
     
    the commands  : 
     
     
    Install new version of compiler
    emerge -u sys-devel/gcc show the versions
    gcc-config -l choose the new version
    gcc-config 2 reinstall libtool 
    emerge --ask --oneshot sys-devel/libtool remove the old version
    emerge --ask --depclean =sys-devel/gcc-4.9.3 until here all fine and perfect, but my doubt is about recompile the toolchain, I need just recompile the depedencies with 
    revdep-rebuild --library 'libstdc++.so.6' -- --exclude gcc or I need recompile the whole system three ?

    I agree with Livecd that you're right, but on Stage4, at least an openbox image and some packages (browsers, editors, etc.) will be fine, and could be with -march = generic, but with a kickstart to new users or someone who needs a faster installation.
     
    What I suggest is an option for new users.
