IP Space Migration ContinuesAll Funtoo user containers in the 8.28 IP space will be moving into our new IP space (172.97) over the next few days. If you have DNS set up -- be sure to watch your container and update to the new IP! container.host.funtoo.org DNS will be updated after the move.
Funtoo Hosting IP MoveFuntoo user containers with IPs in the 72.18.x.x range will be gradually migrating to new IP addresses this week. If you have DNS entries for your containers, please be aware that your DNS will need to be updated.
New ARM StagesNew ARM Stages, built with a new toolchain, are now hitting mirrors. Existing ARM users should re-install using these stages (dated Aug 3, 2015 or later,) rather than upgrade using emerge.
media-sound/bitwig-studio is a closed source audio production and performance software; which includes several virtual instruments, samples, clips and the means to use them in scenes and tracks.
It is possible to use it with media-sound/jack-audio-connection-kit and it is recommended by their staff.
Preparing to install
We need to use the dstien-portage overlay; which is not official. It is recommended to use app-portage/layman to install it.
Please, follow these instructions: pending
Adding the overlay
To add the overlay, just copy the dstien-portage.xml file into /etc/layman/overlays and we're done.
cd /etc/layman/overlays curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dstien/dstien-portage/master/dstien-portage.xml
Then, just sync all the overlays:
Now, we're ready to continue the installation.
One thing to keep in mind before installing is if you want to use media-video/libav or media-video/ffmpeg for the audio rendering.

If you are to use media-video/ffmpeg, please, remove libav from the USE flag of that package:
echo 'media-sound/bitwig-studio -libav' > /etc/portage/package.use/bitwig-studio
Installing media-sound/bitwig-studio is as easy as:
