I got it to work I should get one of those USB sticks that automate keyboard presses or something for base installs like this because it's basically the same everywhere and I do it a lot
@Nonetrix Want my gentoo automation script? lol It’s a life saver
@firstname.lastname@example.org I probably could do something like that myself I don't want extra bloat since what's considered bloat is different to everyone
No problem. After you select, your profile, how long does it take you to run
emerge —verbose —update —deep —newuse me like 2 hours just on that step alone. Then another 45 for the kernel….who knows how long for the rest of the sotware
@email@example.com I'll try that in a minute I'm on a fairly new ryzen chip so it's probably not that bad
Probably because I am using the Plasma/SYstemd profile
@firstname.lastname@example.org I'm probably going to use systemD because I think the thingy that makes kernel updates not explode needs it
@email@example.com I think it's nvidia-dkms or something
Yeah, you neverk now when you may need it in the future anyway. Also, services are much easier to configure and manage with systemd.
@firstname.lastname@example.org theirs not really a difference in boot times in my experience
@Nonetrix What desktop will u use
@email@example.com xmonad most likely since I have configs for that maybe dwm if I feel adventurous
@Nonetrix ah, no wonder it won’t take you as long as me lol KDE is yuge!
@firstname.lastname@example.org might end up leaving my PC on over night since it's starting to get a little late
@email@example.com kde is good but I must destroy all bloat because idk
@Nonetrix lol I wish I knew they had a gentoo-kernel-bin
@firstname.lastname@example.org >>>>not messing with your kernel for fun
@Nonetrix I will once I create a golden config. until then, genkernel takes too dam long and is bloated AF
I recommending blacklisting clang and llvm because they add an hour each of compiling time.
@email@example.com you seem to be the gentoo expert is this good? Mostly
I use -march=native. Did you select a profile with eselect?
@firstname.lastname@example.org no I got some shit off the gentoo wiki that's apparently best for zen based chips
Ah ok. It is still taking me a long time to get setup even after changing from KDE To GnuStep….394 packages versus 940 lol. Curious how long it takes you to emerge world and then install all your stuff and how many packages it is.
@email@example.com I selected something something systemd that's all I know also what the fuck is a use flag
oh no you have a lot to learn lol. Use flags allow you to control the features of the system. For example, the firefox has a couple use flags for hardware accelleration and what not.
eselect profile list shows you predefined use flags to make it easier.
@firstname.lastname@example.org can you just tell me what I have to do to fix this shit I want to turn off my PC pls
Try: etc-update —automode -5
Remove emerge , try :
etc-update —automode -5
emerge —verbose —update —deep —newuse
@email@example.com I think I am the most dumb gentoo user
maybe you forgot emerge —verbose —update —deep —newuse
@firstname.lastname@example.org that's the same thing
@email@example.com it doesn't work just lists how to use it ;_;
@Nonetrix HMmm the image is cut off. I don’t see That is the proper command, I tested it.
@firstname.lastname@example.org oh wait sorry I was confused it added rage.lol at the end
@Nonetrix Pleroma =)
@email@example.com seems to be doing something now at least
That will compile the base system based on the use flags set. When it is done, you need to install the packages you want.
@firstname.lastname@example.org guess I just need to install grub and a few extra things and xmonad of course and I'll be good
@Nonetrix did you mount boot in the chroot? Set the partition type as vfat or fat 32 and format it with mkfs.vfat?
@email@example.com idk what the hecc I did its 3AM I'll mess with it tomorrow
@firstname.lastname@example.org luckily I'm at the point where I can chroot so I can turn off my PC lol
Any luck today?
@email@example.com haven't done anything with it today just got up really tbh
Ah. GCC is ruining my day with its long compile times lol. This is very time consuming
@firstname.lastname@example.org you should wait for the new ryzen chips and get a used older ryzen
I seriously doubt that the CPU will make a big difference with gentoo. I have a brand new Intel i5 10th Gen quad core.
@email@example.com oh didn't know what CPU you had tbh have you tried editing make.conf on the gentoo wiki they have optimized settings for my CPU at least just look for something like make.conf for sandy bridge or whatever
Yeah, but big things like kernel,kde, gcc just take a long time nno matter what
@firstname.lastname@example.org >>using kde and not a WM
