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! container.host.funtoo.org DNS will be updated after the move.

Funtoo Hosting IP Move

Funtoo 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 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.

DHCPCD is a DHCP client program to automatically fill in network settings for interfaces connecting to a network.


# emerge net-misc/dhcpcd

When using wpa_supplicant, add dhcpcd to the default runlevel

# rc-update add dhcpcd default

and then start dhcpcd by updating the runlevels and launching anything not already started with

# rc
# /etc/init.d/dhcpcd start

to start dhcpcd specifically.

Wpa_supplicant will now be able to connect to a network.
