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.
# emerge net-misc/ntp
The ntp-client command immediately synchronizes your clock, and has separate ntp sync settings from the daemon:
NTPCLIENT_OPTS="-s -b -u \ 0.pool.ntp.org 1.pool.ntp.org \ 2.pool.ntp.org 3.pool.ntp.org"
The ntpd server is also an ntp-client of upstream servers. Ntpd continuously, and gradually synchronizes the local clock.
# Pools for Gentoo users server 0.pool.ntp.org server 1.pool.ntp.org server 2.pool.ntp.org server 3.pool.ntp.org
# rc-update add ntpd # rc-update add ntp-client # rc
To write your NTP sync time to the hardware at shutdown, and read hw clock at start.
# echo 'clock_hctosys="YES"' >> /etc/conf.d/hwclock # echo 'clock_hctosys="YES"' >> /etc/conf.d/hwclock # rc-service hwclock restart # rc-update add hwclock boot
