Re: Small piwiz race condition (time sync)

Probably worth filing an issue against this then, if it also affects vanilla Raspbian Buster. Does anyone know the correct GitHub project? I've only been able to find https://github.com/nethunteros/piwiz but nothing in e.g. raspberrypi or raspberrypi-ui: guess I'm just looking in the wrong place? Be...

Small piwiz race condition (time sync)

Hello, during recent testing of my raspbian-nspawn-64 image, I ran into a small race condition that I believe will probably also affect vanilla Raspbian installs. Specifically, if the user boots the current (10 July 2019) Raspbian image, with no Ethernet connected, gets to the WiFi setup screen, spe...

Re: Pi4 64-bit raspbian kernel for testing - Focus on Pi4

Hello, Slightly OT since the focus is on the Pi4, but: I have used this official 64-bit kernel (@ 4.19.69-v8+, with matching boot f/w, as pulled in by rpi-update) in my recently released raspbian-nspawn-64 image, so I've given it some testing on both an RPi4 and RPi3. Mostly, it seems to work well o...

Only C, C++, Fortran are in your current 9.2.0 GCC release.
Yes, you can also compile sys-devel/gcc with e.g. the objc and objc++ USE flags, but I try to keep the shipped version of gcc relatively vanilla.

Re: QT issues

Gavinmc42, Unfortunately, Qt4 was last-rited and removed in Gentoo last year (https://bugs.gentoo.org/631788). However, the Qt ensemble is still slotted, so if you can install an overlay (user ebuild repository) that has the old Qt4 ebuilds in there, you ought to be able to install it in parallel wi...

@Sakaki - Many thanks for pinnify. It looks very promising and I hope to incorporate it into some of my own scripts.

Re: Lazarus/Free Pascal

Yes, this is a standard Gentoo question about version-bumping an existing ebuild, rather than something RPi-specific, so probably best to post on the Gentoo forums about this.

Hi nersos, so, it is possible to rebuild any package in Gentoo yourself with custom settings (in fact, ultimately that's kind of the point of using it ^-^), but to be fair, it's perhaps not the easiest distro to start out on if you want to go off-piste (you mentioned in your first post you were new ...
