  1. Doing an emerge -uavDN @world and am getting this on the "shadow" package: >>> Downloading 'http://distfiles.gentoo.org/distfiles/shadow-4.1.5.1.tar.bz2' --2017-03-01 22:07:10-- http://distfiles.gentoo.org/distfiles/shadow-4.1.5.1.tar.bz2 Resolving distfiles.gentoo.org... 64.50.236.52, 64.50.233.100, 156.56.247.195, ...

I navigate to the URL listed in a browser and the referenced package indeed doesn't exist. Is this something I can fix on my end? Thanks in advance.
  2. Necrobump but at least it's less than a year old :) So far my 3 or 4 day venture into Funtoo has been very easy and I am very impressed. I used Gentoo back in the early/mid 2000's and it really appealed to my need to tinker. Bounced around and used many, many different distros, even spent about 6 months with FreeBSD. Came back to Linux and wanted a system free of (insert unmentionable init system here) so found Funtoo. Surprised to learn Mr. Robbins was the author and since I loved Gentoo so much, decided to give the distro a whirl. Much easier install and everything has worked well. Thanks Funtoo team, much appreciated!
  3. Hello everyone, first post, first time using Funtoo, although I used Gentoo for several years back in the early/mid 2000's. Here is my daily use rig: HP z800 workstation 2 x 6core Xeons X5650 @ 2.67GHz 96gb ram 3 SSDs (1.2tb total) 2 spinning drives (3tb total) Nvidia GTX560 1100 watt power supply Since I can't afford a Dodge Hellcat Challenger, this has to suffice :) Been using Linux for nearly 20 years as my main desktop. I have made a conscious decision to never depend on Microsoft (or Apple) products for anything (except gaming) so have happily been using Linux for everything. The rig above is my main desktop. I use it for writing, graphic editing, surfing, bills, taxes, email, everything one uses a desktop for.
