Gentoo

Broken every other week

Gentoo

blog.flameeyes.eu: I’m seriously disappointed in Gentoo; even after my last post on the topic the Gentoo quality seems to be on a downward spiral, rather than climbing up. The problem is social: too many developers don’t give a f*ck.

gentoo.org: As the quantity and quality of this year's entries will attest, Gentoo is alive, well, and taking no prisoners!

linuxtweaking.blogspot: I have been using Gentoo for a few months and it has been a good experience but generally I can't see myself continuing to use it. Funnily enough, OpenSUSE 11.3 has changed some of my thoughts about Gentoo.

Would Mark Shuttleworth use Gentoo had he not founded Ubuntu?

rrr.thetruth.de: Fortunately, sping said almost everything there is to say about LinuxTag. But there’s one important part missing: We finally made a peace treaty with what many call Gentoo’s arch nemesis (no pun intended?): Ubuntu.

Gentoo Failed Us Again

blog.flameeyes.eu: I’ve spent the past week or so away from computers, I came back to updating my systems today, and I received a nasty surprise.

An In-Depth Look at Gentoo Linux

Filed under
Gentoo

kernelnews.com: Imagine an Operating System that only includes the features that you actually want and use. An Operating System that is finely tuned to your computer hardware. One that doesn't include any resource hogging applications that you don't need such as "Desktop Search" or huge bloated software. Gentoo Linux is such an Operating System.

Upstream, rice it down!

Filed under
Gentoo

blog.flameeyes.eu: While Gentoo often gets a bad name because of the so-called ricers and upstream developer complains that we allow users to shoot themselves in the foot by setting CFLAGS as they please, it has to be said that not all upstream projects are good in that regard.

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.2.3 MR

LibreELEC 8.2.3 is released to change our embedded pastebin provider from sprunge.us (RIP) to ix.io (working) so users can continue to submit logs to the forums through a URL without copy/pasting text or direct uploading log files. This is our preferred way to receive and read your log files so if you are not familiar with using the paste function please read this wiki article to find out how. The 8.2.3 release also solves an issue with continuity errors on USB DVB adaptors that has been troubling some 8.2 users for some time; kudos to user @jahutchi for tracking down the problem kernel commit. We also address a long-running crashing issue with Intel BayTrail hardware that needed some users to force max_cstate in kernel boot parameters, and for bonus credit users with an Intel NUC equipped with an LED can fiddle with the colours, as we backported the LED driver from our master branch.

Linux 4.15 Expected To Be Released Today, But It Might Be 4.15-rc9

After going through release candidates the past eight weeks, the Linux 4.15 kernel is expected to be released later today by Linus Torvalds. Normally after RC7, the kernel is baked, but all the changes last week due to the fallout from Spectre/Meltdown led to RC8. But this past week, the pace of change has continued with many fixes still coming in. We'll likely see Linux 4.15.0 out today as Torvalds commented last week, but it wouldn't really be surprising if overtime is extended and instead we get 4.15-rc9 due to all of the changes this week and ongoing work still happening around Spectre and Meltdown mitigation.
