  1. Thanks oleg, masking 10.2 fixed it for me. And gentoo install has same issue and will mask there also.
  2. I used gentoo for a few years before switching to funtoo. I found that a great advantage to knowing why I love funtoo. Switched to funtoo in 2011, and never looked back.
  3. and that looks good, but are you booting into your system as uudruid74 sugested? Or are you chroot into it and trying to startx? Is no reason to startx in a chroot, just fix it to boot, and then go from there.
  4. gcc is a good example, I sent a link to you on forked packages in funtoo in your other thread. http://www.funtoo.org/Compare_Forked_Packages_To_Gentoo When updating ebuilds, we do want to look at Gentoo's most recent changes. Some of our ebuilds are mild variations of Gentoo's ebuilds, while others are complete rewrites. In general, we like to make our work as easy as possible, so we don't want to duplicate work, although sometimes there are exceptions where we will rewrite complex core ebuilds to make them more maintainable and easy to understand (our sys-devel/gcc ebuilds are an exampl
  5. Indeed it is forked, you can see the list here http://www.funtoo.org/Compare_Forked_Packages_To_Gentoo I would suggest creating a bug on it here https://bugs.funtoo.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa Just request the package update, or to include the new feature you want/need. Packages are forked for many reasons, usually to keep them from breaking other packages. If your package can be updated, I am sure it will be.

  7. If you follow the install guide, you will get a binary kernel that should work for you as is, out of the box. Now that kernel gives you a working booting system, you can in your free time, build a custom kernel. You can have as many kernels, as you have room for on your hard drive. So keep your working kernel, and if your new kernel does not turn out so well, you can boot the old working kernel and try again. Just not the end of the world, if you do not get it right the first time.
  8. Am I the only one that still puts this in make.conf? :P INPUT_DEVICES="evdev keyboard mouse"
  9. I wish I knew what was going on with qt5 at the moment. As far as I know qt5 should be enabled on a per package basis at this time. But if it works, then leave it. I have USE="qt4" and per package as needed I add qt5. Here is the line you are looking for that is important. The following REQUIRED_USE flag constraints are unsatisfied: exactly-one-of ( qt4 qt5 ) And this is simply informational and telling you what you need, is normal. Sorry it does not always just give you one option. Sometimes the first option such as qt4 above is the best choice and the one I try. Sometimes is the s
  10. I never have tried systemd. The problem with systemd is it tries to be to big and do to much all at once. I was totally perplexed as the distros started jumping on board with this. It is another of Lennart Poterings pet projects, he has started several and somehow he seems to lose interest and never completes his work. Pulseaudio is one of these projects and has open bugs for a very long time, I wonder if he is even still involved with it? Dont get me wrong, I think pulseaudio is a very complicated wrapper for alsa, and it serves a area that alsa just cant do by itself. There are music lo
  11. Not sure what all is old in funtoo means. I know some of the core system packages are older by design, and that is what will help make your funtoo stable. While the rest of the packages are pulled from the ~gentoo arch, so should be the same. While some packages are forked to keep a better working older version or some are simply masked as being broken. And of course you have overlays available and other avenues to get newer packages. One way is to put in a package request on https://bugs. funtoo.org/ if it is possible to do so without breaking things for others, is a very good chance wi

  13. I was just remembering the old days when portato was still active and supported. I said portato was great. And it did work well for me, I was just learning portage in those days. But since portato died, I have tried kuroo and porthole and they just did not work well for me. It only seemed they had partial functionality, and might as well do the job without them.
  14. GENTOO_MIRRORS="http://mirrors.rit.edu/gentoo/http://mirror.lug.udel.edu/pub/gentoo/ http://gentoo.mirrors.pair.com/" With gentoo you would want to select a fast mirror. With funtoo that does not apply. And your emerge --sync looks perfect, so yeah I assume the mirror you have listed above is just being ignored by your system. Just made me curious is all, that is a gentoo option that is not available on funtoo since it uses git. And it was after I posted here, that I ran into your post in portage. By all means, if it works for you, stick with it.
  15. sorry, I read this wrong, thinking you wanted to move from gentoo to funtoo either way, why not a clean install? will still have to recompile everything.
