    Is Funtoo dying?

    I believe that Funtoo has switched to a more stable release cycle (Not exactly, more like a break less stuff cycle). @drobbins has also released some great videos on his youtube channel for submitting put requests to have the community start helping with the updates.
  2. Looks like they are looking for help with the documentation. The new builds are located https://build.funtoo.org/1.3-release-std/

    help with updating package.use

    This is telling you that you have an auto generated package.use file in that directory. Look in /etc/portage for a possible updated config file or files .cfg0000_package.use (note you may have a lot depending on how long it has been giving you that error). From a root or super user command prompt run: cd /etc/portage/ and then ls -al as then are hidden files. (filenames starting with a . are hidden) dispatch-conf is a tool designed to help update config files.

    feedback (for devs)

    Sorry for the questions? sshd running by default - did you file a bug report? Have you all checked out the youtube videos on contributing? Lets fix these things. We are Funtoo, @drobbins, @Oleg Vinichenko and other regulars are the directors. If it is broken fix it.

    Masked by corruption

    I understand but I got myself in a messy situation. I am having trouble staying at 1.2 due to running perl 5.28 and the changes that happened. I was running 5.28 then updated to 1.2 then the perl kit 5.28-release was depreciated. Kit system changes.

    !!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "gcc" have been masked. !!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request: - sys-devel/gcc-7.3.0::core-kit (masked by: corruption) - sys-devel/gcc-7.2.0::core-kit (masked by: corruption) - sys-devel/gcc-6.4.0::core-kit (masked by: corruption) - sys-devel/gcc-6.3.0::core-kit (masked by: corruption) - sys-devel/gcc-5.4.0-r1::core-kit (masked by: corruption) - sys-devel/gcc-5.4.0::core-kit (masked by: corruption) - sys-devel/gcc-5.3.0-r2::core-kit (masked by: corruption) - sys-devel/gcc-5.3.0-r1::core-kit (masked by: corruption) - sys-devel/gcc-4.9.4-r1::core-kit (masked by: corruption) - sys-devel/gcc-4.9.4::core-kit (masked by: corruption) - sys-devel/gcc-4.8.5-r1::core-kit (masked by: corruption) I have got my system in a very sorry state. Trying to run on 1.3. If i try and emerge gcc I get the previous errors not sure where to start. Updated portage, replaced the /var/git/meta-repo Any pointers would be great. Thank you

    [Solved]sys-boot/boot-update is blocking

    Boot-update has been added into ego so you need to remove boot-update. I don't know all the details yet but they are coming out in time. Little more info here.

    ego 2.6 testing?

    You need to add ego to ACCEPT_KEYWORDS in your /etc/portage/make.conf or create a /etc/portage/package.accept.keywords file. https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/ACCEPT_KEYWORDS I am still trying to figure out the correct syntax by referring to the prior link and the info from the post below.
