  1. Hi folks O/ few years ago I wonder about a friendly version of Gentoo and Funtoo, the gentoo community don't liked, but I keep did some tests but I didn't continue, well, few week ago I start again, but this time only a Funtoo Friendly version, and now I have something really beginning. the project will resume in few flavors and one version with a overlay with update packages and few extra. the funtoo flavors are X+openbox, gnome and Plasma, they are just the Funtoo Stage3 Generic with few packages and some configuration. and has one version with plasma, but with an overlay with few update packages and other stuffs, a stage more out of the box, I want make something to people learn about gentoo/funtoo or for who use the system without spent hours to build the system. the webiste will be done in the next weeks, and the stages will be available in the next days "sorry, I'm with one pc now, and the net is a turtle". website -> https://bentoo.info/ binhost -> http://binhost.bentoo.info github repos : overlay -> https://github.com/lucascouts/bentoo configurations -> https://github.com/lucascouts/bentoo-cfg I don't know if the funtoo community will like but anyway I'll forward with this project, but will be great if few users could help with feedback or criticisms. thank you anyway ?
  2. Hello. I'm testing some options to build a livecd, but I spent few days on google try to find something about that, but I just saw solutions to .deb, catalyst to gentoo and a very old "2011" tutorial of LFS. so I wonder which steps I need, to search about them, again, I know that have some scripts, but I really whould like to make the whole process.
  3. Hi, I tested the Metro days ago and is amazing, but I have alot of questions and I don't find a documentation, just a simple tutorial link : http://www.funtoo.org/Metro I'm not an expert on Funtoo so I need a documentation to learn. example of few questions: - how can I add a make.conf modificated to new stage - change the python version - change the gcc version and recompile the toolchain I really appreciate if someone create a article with more details about Meto. thank you.
  4. What has to be done to get https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/tree/dev-libs/efl/efl-1.20.7.ebuild available in Funtoo-Linux?
  5. Hi, I'm already using the gcc version 7.3, I wonder if I need reinstall the gcc if change the kits to version 1.2 ? or just keep the tutorial skip that step.
  6. Hello Funtoo Community! I have subscribed to an 'large' Funtoo container, and i have some questions about CPU and Memory allocation for certain applications. I'm planning to run a couple of game Servers in the container and i would like to know if there is any way to force certain applications use only one exact group (node) of CPU cores? So i would like to allocate 8 cores per 1 application. (there will be 2-3 applications) The second question is about RAM and tmpfs. Can i make an tmpfs boot persistant? I would like to load some server data (ca. 1GB) completely in tmpfs for faster I/O. If no, can i use an script to load data on startup in tmpfs, and move data back if SIGTERM/SIGKILL catched, replicating changes every 'n' minutes? Sorry for my English. Thank you!
  7. I am completely new to installing Gentoo/Funtoo and have had no problems up until updating my @world set. This is giving me an issue and seems like nothing is working. I have done some research on the Gentoo and Funtoo forums with no luck. I tried to just follow the install from the handbook and ran "emerge -auDN @world" and then got this. Code can be found here: https://pastebin.com/z9jbJDHG From there I am at a loss and do not know how to proceed. If anyone has any insight on what I can try to do to fix it or some other commands that I can run to get more info it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Also here is the "emerge --info" command output: https://pastebin.com/sth62kVg I see that is asked for in a lot of questions.
  8. Sorry, I have posted this to the wrong section and I do not seem to be able to move it or delete it. Hi, I have tried to emerge www-client/chromium on Funtoo but apparently one needs 3 GB of RAM in order to accomplish that (64-bit). I only have 2 GB and cannot be upgraded (Atom N455). Is there any workaround? Should all open-source Chrome derivatives, such as Iridium, present the same issue? Firefox and PaleMoon (the later with an old gcc version) emerge just fine... Best, Miro PS: The reason for compiling the entire OS on this Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3s was because only this way was I able to multitask. Binary OSs (be them Linux or Windows) made using more than one application at a time quite a pain. The reason for choosing Funtoo over Gentoo was the Atom64 stage3. With a tailored 4.14 Gentoo kernel, every single package compiled from source, LXDE, RAM upgraded to 2B and an SSD, I now can have 2/3 applications (such as LibreOffice Write, PaleMoon and Gimp) running simultaneously and manage to get the work done when on the move.
  9. Hi folks, I wonder if may I use the Gentoo ebuild to install the GCC 5.4, I looked and the funtoo gcc 5.3-r1 ebuild is different of gentoo 5.3 or 5.4 ebuild is safe use the gentoo ebuild to do that ?
  10. Hello. I was a Gentoo user, but got a bit unhappy about Portage: Then I switched to Paludis (I consider it has amazing features other package managers should look at it, along with NixOS/GuixSD), but the community and the lack of packages made me not get convinced. Then I switched to Archlinux, but I'm not convinced because lots packages I like are only in AUR. I always "suffered" the compiling under Gentoo, but I would like to do some distcc magic and such to avoid it. I wonder if there's a possibility to rent some trustful "compiling farm" out there that is enough secure to prevent malicious attacks (some kind of repetitive work to check there's nothing evil inserted?). Anyway, I installed Arch and forgot how to install it. I installed easy distros on third party computers (Linux Mint, mainly), but the "hard way" is a bit annoying and even more with UEFI. I'm looking at the following tutorial, not sure if it's updated. http://www.funtoo.org/Installation_(Tutorial) Here's some (probably dumb) questions: - 2010? What does mean that date? - Does Funtoo "suffer" from the need to download all the overlay? That's one of the things I liked of Paludis, for example. There's a modularization by having different repositories. - I need to dual boot quite often to Microsoft Windows 7, unfortunately. I want to avoid it by using VM when possible * I'll use mainly Cadence Allego, the AWFUL but pretty Circuit Wizard, maybe Altium, SolidWorks, and try to go to the FOSS side whenever possible. My machine MSI "Gamer" Laptop: GE62 2QD(Apache Pro)-406XES-BB7570H8G1T0SX - Intel Core i7 5700HQ: 2.7GHz that can go to over 3 if in turbo mode, wings not included (but it sounds like a Jumbo!). - 8GB RAM:I'm seriously considering upgrade to 32GB when I have enough money: - 1TB HDD: I'm considering to have my own mini-NAS. Also one of those 3 RAID SSDs[1] [2] plus the same HDD or a bigger one. I miss to be able to buy this, it seems it's sold at ebay by more expensive prices. - Nvidia GTX960M (I would liked a bit better one, but well). - Non-mechanical keyboard: I regret of this, MSI released one that looks lovely (but costs a lot more!). * I can't afford it. I love my desktop's Model M+CST LTracX ** I have RSI/CTS issues and my ADHD makes it even worse, because I type very STRONG. - Sub-par battery: I'm seriously considering on upgrade. Right now I'm trying to obsessively optimize to reduce battery usage for certain tasks if possible. Maybe I'll consider an external battery pack too. - A giant trackball: CST LTracX. Considering to find a smaller one for making it more portable, I'm not so used to trackpads and this one is cumbersome to wear despite I love it. - I'm very unsatisfied with the battery usage, despite my extreme battery usage optimizations when doing not intensive tasks. Can I upgrade it? -I miss official Steelseries RGB support under Linux, I found the following hacks: [https://github.com/wearefractal/msi-keyboard]in javascript[/url] and this one in C++ and this one in Rust!. Maybe some brave soul could add it to the HID part of the Linux kernel. Can can I do to have a nice system without commiting suicide? I miss Gentoo, but I remember the first steps were very painful to me and I forgot EVERYTHING. Kind regards. PS: I hate Java, dotNET, Gnome3 and not like KDE so much. PPS: I use Pale Moon web browser.
  11. Hello! I've been using Gentoo/Funtoo for several years as a user but I've only recently started developing in general. This is also my first post. :) I recently tried to install an unofficial overlay (unity-gentoo, available through layman) but it didn't go so well. As I've explained on their bug tracker (https://github.com/shiznix/unity-gentoo/issues/121), their installation procedure requires a profile to be selected. However, their profiles seems to be unrecognized by epro, so installation is unfortunately impossible. I've looked around the funtoo manuals but I am unable to find any relatively easy way to convert a classic portage/gentoo profile to the epro format. I'm not very familiar with the gen/funtoo internals and I'm a bit anxious at the perspective of writing the profiles from scratch (I wouldn't even know where to begin). Is there anything that could make that transition easier?
  12. Hello funtooers, I have noticed the lack of Funtoo artwork in general, so I took some time to play around with blender and Inkscape to make some wallpapers(7). In a search for a base image, I only encountered a small banner with the Funtoo logo, so I did a re-vectorization, and some slight line chages, and this is the outcome, the wallpapers are mostly minimalistic, Also link to a tar.xz with sources (.blend .svg) and pack png of renders in 1920x1080px, I encourage you to play around with the sources and post your results in this thread. Here's a prewiew from imgur 2d 3d sources https://www.dropbox.com/sh/t1t3030ddkst6f6/AACB9aR5Mk4rHXnvmN3Skjena?dl=0 PD: I would Also like to ask to the developers if this can go to the wiki? for those, newcomers that will want a funtoo wall for their desktops.
  13. It's said Funtoo will create a new init system, is there any news on that? I ever came across VoidLinux.eu who uses runit and works impressive. jazzi
  14. Greeting everyone. I was thinking, most of distros' (and Meta-distros') users can identify each other by a logo or emblem, lets say as a sticker or a website badge, for example, as I used Debian, I have this badge on my website and blog ==> http://pingvinashen.am/debian-user.png Now, what if we come with a Funtoo (temporary ?) logo/emblem/anything, where we can find users and make stickers for laptops (and cars :D) ? any ideas ? I was thinking with a sentence "Use the source Luke!", or hackers emblem with C code instead of dots. P.S. new here, waiting for cool ideas, love the community!
  15. Hey all. I've been messing with my Intel BayTrail (Atom-based Z3740D CPU) tablet trying to get it to boot and properly run Funtoo Linux. I've gotten it to boot actually but now I decided I want to dual boot Funtoo and Windows 8.1. I have Windows on the internal flash (NAND) and it boots up fine, but I'd also like to have Funtoo as an option as well. There's one catch: I have it installed on a 16 GB microSD card. I assume I'd need an initramfs with the proper parameters/drivers/modules to tell the kernel where the root partitions for Funtoo is etc. I know what modules I'd need to get it working, but I don't know how to tell genkernel to generate an initramfs image with the right device path in /dev, and the required modules to load as the initramfs loads up. Is anyone up to the task of helping me out? Thanks, Shiggitay
  16. Hey all. First post, but I'm a long time Funtoo supporter. I plan on getting an x86 (Intel Atom-based) tablet soon for Funtoo and I had a few questions: ? Since it's an Intel platform (it ships with Windows 8.1 32bit installed) will Grub install as if it were on a regular PC? ? Would I be able to install to an SD Card thus leaving the onboard eMMC intact with Windows in case I need it? ? What has the best chance of working with the current kernel iterations? That's all I can think of at the moment, but if I can think of something else to ask I'll edit this post/respond to anyone that's responded etc. Thanks, Shiggitay P.S. I'm also in the iRC channel under this same nick if you'd like to PM me. EDIT: BTW, here are the two tablets I have in mind for this project: an 8 inch form factor: http://www.microcenter.com/product/429776/VivoTab_Note_8_Tablet_-_Black and a 10.1" form factor: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.aspx?sku=410605 EDIT 2: I think I might have a winner: http://www.quantumsuppliers.com/shop/bts-products/quantum-view-10-1-windows-tablet/
  17. Hello guys, I'm having a little problem with ACPI I got this error at dmesg: # dmesg |grep -i error [ 11.683927] ACPI Error: [\_SB_.PCI0.GFX0.DD02._BCL] Namespace lookup failure, AE_NOT_FOUND (20131218/psargs-359) [ 11.683931] ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed [\_SB_.PCI0.RP05.PEGP.DD02._BCL] (Node ffff88022707b050), AE_NOT_FOUND (20131218/psparse-536) And I don't really know if by it self is a problem. What a know is that from time to time I got a kernel panic, related to this. So I've made some research and a lot of the topics I found tell me just: "don't worry... just reboot yout computer." But that's not really a soluction, is it? Anyone has had this problem? Any tips on how can I fix it? Thanks!
