ah cool someone answered my inquiry into this in #gentoo last night but it took me a sec to figure out where hexchat's logs are
apparently i needed to "eselect rust set 1" oy
paste services dont know about my build logs. i cant paste the whole thing its too long lololol
but yeah its failing with this and hnfffffffff
if for some bizarre reason someone is looking here and not in the #gentoo irc for help compiling #firefox 65 there is an issue with some processor feature you have to disable in COMMON_FLAGS (can be disabled just fore firefox too), see here for info:
hopefully this time it finally compiles firefox....
alright i dont think i have pulseaudio set up QUITE right, and @Luxotek is right, i need to add pulseaudio to USE flags and re-emerge deep world or whatever
and im going to have to recompile firefox :(
ok it was a journey but i did it, i changed the virtual audio device in virtualbox config to the intel one then recompiled the kernel with the correct module which appears to be according to this:
snd_hda_intel, once that was in there its a LOT better
it still skips/pops sometimes but at least videos play at the correct speed
haveing issues with #keybase of all fucking things, gui just wont show up
SMOKE #GENTOO EVERY DAY
if you've never configured and compiled your own kernel, kernel configuration is simultaneously way easier and way more obnoxious than you'd ever expect
dam🅱️ ok so i have a 1070 ti which is an nv130 card and looking up noveau (free software) drivers is ah, not looking good considering a lot of 2D is still a WIP :(
tho 3D maybe works??
dont buy from nvidia enemy of your freedom
if u cant see the screenshot check https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/FeatureMatrix/
while trying to wake up and failing to fall back asleep i variously emerged i3 and started x server while going to a shower
also been reading up on how the hell you get nvidia cards to work since that seems to be a prerequisite to boot and sadly will probably have to install the nvidia binary blobs please forgive me rms but i want the 2D acceleration
@anna no domain?
@ben what im not going to buy witches.dead or w/e
iirc BIOS ran out of addressing space for irq's and shit for cards in bigger systems?- some added shit for memory over 128gb i think and new faster ways to talk directly to the hardware instead of using weird ways of talking to the north/southbridge on the mobo
more channels to like pci-e and pci-e for grfx and pci-e 16x and faster bus speeds and shit
support for remote diagnostics, virtualization, and that kinda shit
support for harddrives/partitions over 2tb too isn't doable in bios - and like only 4 partitons on a drive instead of 100's now
uefi also allows more security via hardware embedded encryption and keys between the os and hardware and shit
like - lots of changes from the old bios and mbr partitions
@anna again - i'm not sure if you're just being sarcastic and asking rhetorical questions as a joke so i'm sorry if i'm answering this (badly i might add) that doesn't need an answer
the drugs finally kicked in and blame them
@anna my bemichal romance
@anna well i don't know what that is but i sure don't like it
@anna did you turn off the cms shit or whatever it's called in the bios that loads the keys required to boot windows?
like you're gonna need compatibility mode on to boot it right?
wait.. do you even use windows or do you daily drive linux?
@anna technically true, but the speedup is marginal if you don't use a slow terminal. You'll probably never notice it.
@vika textmode is slow and some compiler functions just barf text
@anna ugh you use tty? but why?! it's slow and it can't show more than 16 colors...
@vika in the gentoo install environment before you have drivers set up and such
Yeah noveau is uhhhh "functional" enough to get your install rolling, but most people need the non-free driver
nvidia rambling, reply-enbying Show more
@greg fucking. cryptocurrency ruins everything
@anna unplug one of the monitors from the dvi or hdmi cable till you're done installing and THEN enable multihead mode
@anna and i dunno if it has anything to do with it - but loading a pci-e video card in AGP mode might be a problem
@Luxotek yeah it might be some bullshit with onboard video vs gpu video, as i do have onboard enabled in bios for use with streaming (you can use onboard video to do encoding) and it might just be confusing the hell out of it. might work if i plug monitor into onboard gpu too
oh man i love uefi - so much better and easier than old school bios's and having to set jumpers on the mobo and drives or dipswitches on the cards and shit
as long as you do your fat /efi partitions on the drive you're set and that's so much easier
@anna hell yeah
@anna too true. Back in the 2.4 times, I could compile a kennel even if drunk, but now... man, there is a lot in the Linux kernel nowadays
@mjjzf its still not hard just so much shit
@anna And reeeeally easy to miss something vital, if you are new on the hardware.
@mjjzf eh i suppose. it seems like most of the important stuff is in there by default, just ah, always have a good livecd handy lmao
@mjjzf that said last time i did this was in like 2004 and it was easier then yes
