Hey guys I think that starting a Funtoo News letter or information source, an official Blog may suite our purposes better, would be a great idea for keeping the community informed about the things going on in the world of Funtoo.  I think we could provide a lot of information once instead of answering the same questions over and over again. It would also be a good time to bring out the best that Funtoo has to offer.  Here are just a few ideas that I have concerning frequency and content.

== Frequency ==
  
If you did not get a <tt>login:</tt> prompt, it's possible that your install was not successful. You can reboot from the live CD and bind-mount your existing installation without repartitioning or recreating filesystems, chroot inside, and then check your system to ensure everything is configured properly:

I think we should be real open handed about the subject matter but closed handed on the quality.   What I mean by that is I think we should include things from developer interviews all the way to user reviews (maybe a Q&A section), and really anything that strikes our fancy and is Funtoo related.  I also think that the quality of the content needs to be enforced.  Maybe having a couple of people read each article or issue objectively and then say yeah this is good before we ship it out.    Tell me what you guys think? Is this a Good Idea?

# ##i##mount /dev/sda4 /mnt/funtoo

# ##i##mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/funtoo/boot

# ##i##env -i HOME=/root TERM=$TERM PATH='/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin' chroot /mnt/funtoo

Once you are done making changes, leave the chroot, unmount mounted filesystems, and reboot:

(chroot) # ##i##exit

# ##i##umount /mnt/funtoo/boot /mnt/funtoo/dev /mnt/funtoo/proc /mnt/funtoo

If you continue to experience difficulties getting Funtoo Linux to boot properly, please ask for help in the [http://forums.funtoo.org/ forums].

+
== Debugging system startup ==
+
 
+
<tt>/etc/rc.conf</tt> contains system settings related to the system initialization scripts. If you are experiencing problems with the system startup scripts, you may find it beneficial to set <tt>rc_logger</tt> to <tt>YES</tt>. This will instruct OpenRC to launch a logging daemon to log the entire rc process to <tt>/var/log/rc.log</tt>.

+
== Graphics Corruption at boot ==
+
 
+
If you experience graphics corruption issues at boot time, you may be experiencing an issue with the [http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/KernelModesetting Kernel Mode Setting subsystem], known as KMS. To resolve this problem, boot from the live CD again [[#boot failure|following the steps above]]. Then, from within the chroot, edit <tt>/etc/boot.conf</tt> and add the line "<tt>params += nomodeset</tt>" to the "<tt>Funtoo Linux genkernel</tt>" section. Your <tt>/etc/boot.conf</tt> should now look like this:
+
 
+
<pre>
+
"Funtoo Linux genkernel" {
+
        kernel kernel[-v]
+
        initrd initramfs[-v]
+
        params += real_root=auto
+
        params += nomodeset
+
}
+
</pre>
+
 
+
Now, save your changes and run <tt>boot-update</tt>:
+
 
+
<console>
+
(chroot) # ##i##boot-update
+
</console>
+
 
+
Now, exit the chroot, unmount filesystems and reboot following the [[#boot failure|boot failure]] instructions.

[edit] Idea

Hey guys I think that starting a Funtoo News letter or information source, an official Blog may suite our purposes better, would be a great idea for keeping the community informed about the things going on in the world of Funtoo. I think we could provide a lot of information once instead of answering the same questions over and over again. It would also be a good time to bring out the best that Funtoo has to offer. Here are just a few ideas that I have concerning frequency and content.

[edit] Frequency

I think that it would be good to at least to start out with once a month and then as content increases to go to bi weekly or even based on the subject.

[edit] Content

I think we should be real open handed about the subject matter but closed handed on the quality. What I mean by that is I think we should include things from developer interviews all the way to user reviews (maybe a Q&A section), and really anything that strikes our fancy and is Funtoo related. I also think that the quality of the content needs to be enforced. Maybe having a couple of people read each article or issue objectively and then say yeah this is good before we ship it out. Tell me what you guys think? Is this a Good Idea?
