  1. The libaccounts-glib-1.23 package is failing to emerge due to being compiled with "treat warnings as errors" and glib-2.62.2 having deprecated the function 'g_type_class_add_private' that is in use (there is a glib deprecation macro causes a compilation warning to be emitted if the function is referenced). The function 'g_type_class_add_private' has been deprecated since glib-2.58. glib-2.58 is about a year old now and libaccounts-glib-1.23 is around 3 years old. On the assumption that I'm not the only person trying to run kde, I'm trying to understand how others could have compiled this
  2. Steam flatpak installation and FAQ links. Change the apt commands to emerge equivalents and make sure you do the "flatpak update" mentioned in the first FAQ answer. https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/06/steam-now-available-flatpak https://github.com/flathub/com.valvesoftware.Steam/wiki/Frequently-asked-questions KDE setup... https://www.funtoo.org/KDE_Plasma_5 logind above should have read 'elogind'. I seem to remember there being 2 plasma 5 mix-ins to choose from - swapping between the 2 had no effect at all with regards to altering emerge'd packages, so choose whichever.
  3. Hi John, You don't seem to be getting any traction from anyone else so I thought I'd try to give you some pointers. I was in pretty much the same boat as you until a month ago - though I have previously trial installed gentoo/funtoo a couple of times since the 2000's Dual booting: I haven't had much luck with the automated boot update being able to chainload windows on my desktop (separate boot disks for window/funtoo) or my laptop (single disk). I haven't had time to investigate what's going wrong so I'm using the EFI BIOS to select the required boot rather than grub. If you wa
  4. I've got the same problem. It's being caused by the softlink in /var/tmp/portage/dev-libs/libxml2-2.9.5 to the files directory which should exist at /var/git/meta-repo/kits/core-kit/dev-libs/libxml2/files. /var/git/meta-repo/kits/core-kit/dev-libs/libxml2/files does not exist.
  5. ah ha! the damned obvious fix I should have thought of myself :) thnx cardinal
  6. Trying to re-emerge procps and it's trying to download the following patch file: procps-3.3.11-remove_Unix98_output_limits.patch This file is apparently recorded as having a size of 7582 bytes in portage, but the file being downloaded is 8390 bytes. Comparing the original file from a gentoo mirror site (from 2015) it looks like the file currently being downloaded has had some lines of commentary added and this has not been reflected elsewhere. Can this be fixed up - either by reverting to the original patch file portage is expecting or by updating the portage indexes to expect the
