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.

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.

Znc is an advanced internet relay chat (IRC) bouncer/proxy/relay. Znc can be used to run irc as a service in the background so closing terminals, and restarting X do not result in join/part messages to IRC channels you're chatting in.


To add init.d scripts:

# echo "net-irc/znc daemon" >> /etc/portage/package.use/znc

For sasl authentication:

# echo "net-irc/znc sasl" >> /etc/portage/package.use/znc

# emerge net-irc/znc



Run the emerge config command to setup znc.

# emerge --config znc

Set your ssl certificates up, and set your irc client to accept self signed certificates. ie accept invalid certificates.

Set bind address to so the system can access the web, and connect to real irc networks.

Set the address/domain to and port to 45654.

Set the web interface module to load only. the web interface is located at the ip/domain & port specified, as in the irc proxy address & port. if using ssl its at if not its


Use the web interface to set the client up.


SSL connections to upstream irc servers require the port number be prepended with a plus symbol.

eg Adding server [irc.freenode.net +6697]

for ssl auth see http://wiki.znc.in/Cert

SASL Authentication

To automatically be identified before joining channels requires either SSL auth certificates, or SASL. make sure you're using SSL before configuring SASL because it will send passwords in plain text if not.

Set the username, nickname, ident, and real name to your registered nick.

Possibly just tick the box & "set MyUsername pa$$w0rd"



# rc-update add znc default
# rc


Connect to localhost as if its an irc network.
