Funtoo:Evolved Bootstrap February 1, 2022

Official project launch. Gekman and drobbins are leading the effort. What we are suggesting people do, who want to be involved, is to simply go to "Cross Linux From Scratch", pick a build, and follow their documentation to bootstrap by hand. As you do this, take notes! Note what little changes you need to make to get the instructions to work. Linux From Scratch is a great project. Cross Linux From Scratch is a sub-project which is not always as current as LFS but it has a cross-build toolchain as its foundation. As our own 'from scratch' project evolves, we want to also reflect the positive qualities of the LFS projects by having each bootstrap step documented in a guide. The different with the 'evolved bootstrap' project is that this effort will eventually build a Funtoo image, and it will be automated - but, we will start by just doing the manual upstream CLFS process, observing, and then I will build out a portion of metatools to autogenerate bootstrap scripts to do everything automatically. So start here: -- pick a book, and start whittling away. The last time I did a CLFS build, a few packages needed patches so they would compile with the newer version of glibc on funtoo systems. CLFS tends to trail LFS by quite a lot. If you desire to try more updated versions of packages in your CLFS build, please do, and take notes on any tweaks if any that were needed to get the new version to work.

Funtoo:Evolved Bootstrap February 10, 2022

We are currently working on a community-oriented warm-up activity to get familiar with the cross-compile process using CLFS. Pnoecker is pushing through the CLFS build process while Drobbins is working on automating the build streamlining it as much as possible.

Funtoo:Evolved Bootstrap February 22, 2022

Fchroot 0.2 prerelease is being tested on our shared alkaline-dev-1 server. It allows us to chroot into alternate architectures using QEMU. It now has PowerPC support as well as several other improvements.

Funtoo:Evolved Bootstrap April 7, 2022

The "Funtoo From Scratch" ffs repository now has the ability to build arm-64bit and powerpc-64bit initial native environments, which can then be fchrooted into. See How Can I Get Involved for easy steps you can follow.

Funtoo:Macaroni Linux May 14, 2022

Macaroni uses now static uids/gids for core groups/users and begin to have a more integration with tool "entities" (released with a new version 0.9.1) The following software was released: luet v0.24.0, luet-portage-converter v0.10.6, pkgs-checker v0.13.0

Funtoo:Macaroni Linux May 30, 2022

Macaroni Phoenix release now begin to have the same automation available on Macaroni Systemd. This permits now to start the review of luet tool to reach a stable condition.

Funtoo:Metatools February 22, 2022

drobbins is working on the "master" branch of metatools. With the 1.0.2 release, mongodb is no longer a dependency.

Funtoo:Metatools February 28, 2022

Drobbins is working on "master" branch, specifically merge-kits, and getting this working fully (currently, "legacy" branch is used for tree regen). This involves upgrading release YAML, implementing support for "sourced" kits, and testing.

Funtoo:Metatools March 15, 2022

Metatools git master now can successfully regen the tree in "dev" mode. It doesn't use mongodb, or threading like the previous incarnation, but is still faster than the older threaded version. This is an important milestone -- soon we will be using this version for production tree regens.

Funtoo:Metatools April 15, 2022

Metatools 1.0.3 has been released, with a bunch of improvements including support for running merge-kits.

Funtoo:Networking April 15, 2022

Corenetwork 1.7.0_beta1 has been released and will be appearing in next-release shortly. Our last release was 1.6.5, almost 4 years ago! See the extensive improvements in the release notes.

Funtoo:Programming Languages June 21, 2022

Ruby update: The efforts to modernize the Ruby Programming Language in Funtoo next have began. Development is underway and we are close to bringing the latest Ruby versions from the 3.0 and 3.1 releases with some updated RubyGems to Funtoo next.

Funtoo:Telemetry June 21, 2022

Long needed update to the Project Telemetry. There has been lots of activity in Phase 4 of this project recently which included deploying Phase 1 components onto internal Funtoo Infrastructure. This has progressed significantly and we now have Prometheus/Alertmanager/Grafana/Blackbox Exporter all deployed for internal Funtoo containers and infrastructure, running in and LXD container itself. The Funtoo Prometheus Exporter planning is ongoing, active development has not yet started. Phase 2 is not as active but will be moving along so we can start compiling Prometheus components for the arm64 architecture, specifically raspi4.
