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.



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

root # emerge --sync


Now, reverse the GNOME 3.14 mask file:

package.mask (directory)

root # cd /etc/portage/package.unmask
root # ln -s /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask/funtoo-gnome .

package.mask (file)

root # cat /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask/funtoo-gnome >> /etc/portage/package.unmask

USE flags

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

root # eselect profile list
root ##g##Currently available mix-ins profiles:
