This is a News item page, and you can comment using DISQUS at the bottom.

GNOME 3.14 is now available in Funtoo, masked for testing. Please help us test it. If you find bugs, or want more detailed information on what is included, please see [FL-1637].

Preparing

Warning

These instructions assume that your /etc/portage/package.{unmask,use} locations are directories.

First, sync the tree if you haven't recently as you need access to a file in the tree:

# emerge --sync

Now, create a symlink to the GNOME 3.14 mask file, reversijng it in the process:

# cd /etc/portage/package.unmask
# ln -s /var/portage/tree/funtoo/profiles/package.mask/funtoo-gnome .

Then to simplify matters, enable the gnome mix-in:

# eselect profile list
Currently available mix-ins profiles:  
  [11]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/audio  
  [12]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/console-extras  
  [13]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/dvd  
  [14]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/gnome  
  [15]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/kde  
  [16]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/mate  
  [17]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/media  
  [18]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/print  
  [19]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/python3-only 
  [20]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/rhel5-compat 
  [21]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/server-db  
  [22]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/server-mail 
  [23]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/server-web
  [24]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/X 
  [25]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/xfce 
  [26]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/vmware-guest 
  [27]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/hardened
# eselect profile add 14

Finally, add the relevant section to your /etc/portage/package.use/funtoo-gnome file:

gnome-light (without mix-in)
gnome-extra/evolution-data-server gtk
x11-libs/libxcb xkb
media-libs/cogl gles2
gnome (with mix-in)
# required by eog-plugins
