IP Space Migration Continues

All 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! DNS will be updated after the move.

New ARM Stages

New 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.

rutorrent is a front end to Package:Rtorrent and is designed to look like utorrent =D

# emerge www-apps/rutorrent


  • Install your web server Package:Nginx, and get Package:PHP with the fpm use flag running first. nginx needs to be built with nginx_modules_http_scgi
  • you must turn on scgi_pass in the rtorrent config.
  • you must be running rtorrent, or rtorrentd.


nginx config

/etc/nginx/sites-available/localhost - nginx configuration
server {
	server_name localhost;
	access_log /var/log/nginx/localhost.access_log main;
	error_log /var/log/nginx/localhost.error_log info;
	root /var/www/localhost/htdocs;
	index index.php index.cgi index.htm index.html;
	autoindex on;

        location ~ \.php$ {
		include fastcgi.conf;
                #fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;

           location /rutorrent {
               include scgi_params;
               scgi_pass localhost:5000;

Restart nginx:

# /etc/init.d/nginx restart

Point your browser to





If you are able to open the rutorrent web interface but receive errors such as Bad response from server: (502 [error,getplugins]) then edit and change/uncomment the following:

listen.owner = www-data = www-data
listen.mode = 0666

The just restart php-fpm:

# /etc/init.d/php-fpm restart

Clock shows the incorrect time

If rutorrent's clock displays the incorrect time/timezone then it can be changed.

date.timezone = "Europe/Athens"

A full list of supported timezones can be found at


502 Bad Gateway is caused by nginx being started and php-fpm not being started.
