My bad, I did compile kernel and the driver but not actually installed it. The solution is: gentoo~ # cd /usr/src/linux gentoo linux # make modules_install gentoo linux # cp arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86_64-4.0.5-gentoo gentoo linux # reboot

I use a simple script to setup my qemu devices in a private bridge (without the internet exit) and masquerade the traffic on the host: /usr/sbin/brctl addbr qemu1 NET=10.116.64 # any private address you like GW=1 BASE=0 MASK=24 ip addr add $NET.$GW/$MASK dev qemu1 ip link set qemu1 up if iptables -t nat -L POSTROUTING -n | grep ^MASQUERADE | awk '{print ...

Why The Strange Naming ? Do you remember this Tidbit from the Handbook? Of particular importance is Handbook:AMD64/Networking/Introduction To get started configuring the network card, tell the Gentoo RC system about it. This is done by creating a symbolic link from net.lo to net.eth0 (or whatever the network interface name is on the system) in ...

PowerMac G5 is a "New World" Mac, and it is 64bit only. So you need this image: http://distfiles.gentoo.org/releases/ppc/autobuilds/20150115/stage3-ppc64-64ul-20150115.tar.bz2 Side note: If it's the Gentoo experience you are looking for, obviously you're on the right track. If you are just trying to get a Mac up and running on Linux, I strongly recommend ...

After looking into /etc/profile. The best place to do this is in /etc/profile.d. Place a script in this directory that looks like this: # add ~/bin to path for all users. PATH="${HOME}/bin:${PATH}" export PATH When /etc/profile runs it calls for sh in /etc/profile.d/*.sh ; do [ -r "$sh" ] && . "$sh" done This will run the new script in ...

If you want to apply to each user, you can do what danemacmillan has said. But if you want to apply to a system wide, especially for newly created users, you have to modify the file /etc/skel/.bashrc with these following lines: export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/bin" Have fun!

Have you tried running eix-sync after adding the overlay? eix-sync is a shorthand for updating caches. Read wiki for more details.

Please read the Reasoning Section in Using Awesome window manager on CentOS 7. Whether or not the distribution is binary or not is irrelevant. This is because the same behavior can occur in all distributions. Items 4 - 6 in the linked post are what revdep-rebuld fixes. The fancy name for Item 4 is a Reverse Dependency. The only definition I could find ...

My problem got solved after changing kernel version to 3.10 and changing gpg version to an old one, that wasn't requiring pinentry to work and that i compiled statically. Although with new version i checked everything twice there always seemed to be an problem with pinentry. Also I think that genkernel wasn't including pinentry automatically. I had to ...

I solved the issue by just reinstalling xen and xen-tools while systemd was already installed. I did, however, have to change my xen-qemu-dom0-disk-backend.service to point to my already installed QEMU binary (since I use a separate QEMU package).

Since I helped with the question related to this one, I'd like to provide a bit of background here also. Background You had listed the Zuniga Overlay, hosted by Ycarus. I looked up his user profile at the Gentoo Forums, and since the forum was created, he's only had 24 total posts. When I first started using overlays the Zuniga/Ycarus Overlay was one of ...

Bad News I looked this up a few days ago, and forgot to post the answer. I don't use xen or xen-tools so my emerge output shows the extra packages: ecyoung@bedroom-gentoo ~ $ sudo emerge -av xen xen-tools These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies... done! [ebuild N ] dev-libs/yajl-2.0.4-r3::gentoo ...

A Bit Of Background Historically speaking some users of FreeBSD have not gotten along with users of the Linuxes. For many years, until Linux from Scratch, and it's children of whom Gentoo is one, users could not get true source code on their system, unless they chose to use the FreeBSD Ports System. For that reason FreeBSD users viewed themselves as ...

You can set up your host system to run ARM binaries using the QEMU emulator. This is done by registering an userspace-application for a specific executable format to the kernel's binfmt-functionality. Since the setup-procedure is quite lengthy, let me just post some links to howtos: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Crossdev_qemu-static-user-chroot ...

What about using the "noreplace" option of emerge? Description: "Skips the packages specified on the command-line that have already been installed. Without this option, any package atoms or package sets you specify on the command-line will cause Portage to remerge the package, even if it is already installed. Note that Portage will not remerge dependencies ...

From this link: Normally, each LVM command issues a disk scan to find all relevant physical volumes and to read volume group metadata. However, if the metadata daemon is running and enabled, this expensive scan can be skipped ... This can save a significant amount of I/O and reduce the time required to complete LVM operations, particularly on systems ...

I'm going to ignore your wireless interface for now, because I've seen lots of wireless APs with security that are just a complete pain to set up WPA2 on the commandline (somewhere that a GUI, even a CLI one like wicd shines). Make sure an ethernet cable is plugged in, and you know it works: ifconfig enp30s0 up ethtool enp30s0 It should show that the ...

Just to share my experience. I did struggle today with tmux and linux mint 17 Border in tmux were not ok since last updates. (? i.s.o - or |) I tried lots of things without success. What did solve my problem at the end: - go to setting -> Languages - set Language to English,United kingdom UTF-8 (or other UTF-8) - set Region to French-Belgium UTF-8 - ...

You can run your command(s) via systemd-run --scope. This creates a transient (ie temporary) cgroup for your command. You can then modify the cgroup to your needs. Use systemd-cgls to find your process in the cgroup hierarchy under /sys/fs/cgroup. According to the systemd-run manpage systemd-run may be used to create and start a transient .service or a ...

To transplant bash from your running Fedora, you'd need not only the bash executable, but also all the libraries it depends on. That's going to be fiddly and could conflict with the Gentoo files. Get a statically-linked shell, so you can just add a single binary to your chroot that will work on its own. I don't think that Fedora provides any; you can obtain ...

Fix First of all, never transplant/copy/link etc a live tool to the stage3 working area. As such, lets start over. First, I'm assuming /dev/sda3 is a blank partition. If not: Create /dev/sda3 using a tool like GParted. If you've already done Step 1, issue: mke2fs -j /dev/sda3 mkdir /mnt/gentoo && mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/gentoo cd /mnt/gentoo wget ...
