Re: Blender / ffmpeg crash.

I know this thread is a bit old, but I'd better mark it solved anyhow.
The Blender/ffmpeg crash was caused by the cflag march=native.
I've changed to the cflag to the actual processor march=k8 ( k8= amd 64) , and it works fine :).
I'm thinking the 'native' function of gcc isn't quite mature yet....

Re: Clean world file before world update?

Yes, in fact I printed it to make sure I'd have it when needed. :)

Re: Clean world file before world update?

Ok, after some experimenting, I've done the corecd install. It is better than installing the 'core' option from the full cd. But before I can update, one of the first things I need to do is -C a few virtual/perl lib components, and they won't because they are protected. Probably because they are lis...

Re: Clean world file before world update?

Thanks and yes, a core install sounds like what I need to start with. I'm now doing a core install on another partition, and I'll be sure to look over make.conf. I'll be setting cflags for sure. This core install sure takes a long time though... I would highly suggest getting the corecd Is there a c...

Re: Clean world file before world update?

Thanks for the quick reply guys.:) I probably seem antiquated for wanting portage, but portage is actually the reason I came to Sabyaon, otherwise I would still be using Xubuntu. SL has a niche worth maintaining. you will want to check out emaint emaint world -f reduced my world file down to 1035 li...

Clean world file before world update?

I've read from a Gentoo user that it is good to clean up the world file before a world update to reduce blocked packages. Your world file contains every package you have explicitly installed. Dependencies for these files are not added, but checked for when needed instead. It seems .libs and anything...

Re: A bash quick reference.

I could add those, and submit them to the wiki. But to be most useful I'll try to keep it down to commands that novices need to fix a system that doesn't boot. A few equo commands should be there too.

Re: A bash quick reference.

About su = switch user. I stand corrected. Thanks, and thanks for the links to those cheat sheets too. Fosswires command reference is a must-have. I'm printing that one.:) But what I had in mind was a bit more specific. I'm aiming for just the commands needed if a novice messed up and can't get to h...

A bash quick reference.

A friend wanted a brief, one page quick reference of Bash to help him fix his (frequently) broken system, or at least get him back to a working desktop. He's running Ubuntu, but the basics should be the same. Now its turning into a bit of a project for me.... Before I give it to him, does anyone see...
