Gentoo Weekly Newsletter: July 14th, 2003
Gentoo Linux at LinuxTag
Gentoo Linux was at LinuxTag 2003, the largest Linux/Open Source fair in Europe, held at the Conference Center in Karlsruhe, Germany. The convention closed its doors yesterday after four days packed with speeches, workshops, a programming contest and numerous other events in the congress center and its fairly large exhibition hall, competing for media attention only with the beautiful weather (IT journalists were spotted hanging out in the adjacent zoological garden, drinking latte and chasing the peacocks).
The German Gentoo devs, including Michael Imhof, Dan Armak, Hanno Boeck, Sascha Schwabbauer, Lars Weiler, and many others who had manned the Gentoo booth since Thursday, packed up their odd collection of hardware ranging from handheld devices over iBooks to powerful graphics workstations and went home, exhausted but happy about a very successful first display of Gentoo at the LinuxTag. 1000 LiveCDs (LinuxTag edition, sponsored by Millenux, an IBM Germany partner for Linux on s/390 mainframes) were thrown at visitors for free, and were gone so fast that a rotational vigil had to be mounted over the rationed number of copies to be handed out per day. At peak time, 12 resident Gentooists were sharing the available booth space (at a density of almost a dev per square meter), and hundreds of Gentoo users, the occasional visiting dev and many IT professionals dropped by for a chat about new features, organisational questions or to exchange hearty handclasps among people who had only met via mailing lists and Forum threads before. One KDE developer who visited the booth told danarmak that he was going to switch to Gentoo just because because he liked his live CVS KDE ebuilds so much.
The crowd gathering to watch demos of co-exhibitor XINE added to making things look slightly claustrophobic at times, but the general feeling was "the more, the merrier". Tantive's LinuxTag Summary gives a thorough account of the kind of questions the Gentoo devs were most often confronted with. "When will Gentoo be available for the Opteron?" and "No problem doing mass emerges for several machines at a time, but how do I etc-update a large number of workstations afterwards?" were among the typically more business-oriented demands from LinuxTag visitors.

Remember, we need you to send us your stories in order to have a story here. Whether interesting, funny, or just plain unbelievable, we'd love to feature your story about Gentoo and you here.
Featured Developer of the Week
Lisa Marie Seelye
Figure 4.1: Lisa Marie Seelye
This week we're featuring Lisa Marie Seelye, who just joined the Gentoo Linux Project a few days ago. She maintains distcc, and has already gotten distcc-2.7.1 into x86 stable and committed 2.8 for testing. She says the life of a maintainer is a simple life: up at the crack of dawn to squash any bugs and to make the life of everyone using Gentoo and distcc a little easier. Lisa came to the project when Seemant Kulleen saw something in the ebuilds and bugs she submitted to Bugzilla, and says that these were selfish contributions - bugs submitted so that things would work for her - but that the awesome beauty is that people are also affected in a positive way and it makes her feel good. Lisa has released a couple of Win32 programs with the source available, but Gentoo is her first 'real' OSS project. A student during the day, Lisa writes PHP applications for paying customers to help pay the bills.
A PHP lover, Lisa says her best work is a function from a PHP project she wrote, that accepts a relative path and then recursively adds every jpeg under it into a database and even makes a thumbnail of each image. Weighing in at a lean 57 lines with comments, Lisa says this taught her how to manipulate stacks in a way she hadn't done before, as well as how to use PHP/Apache functions. Her favorite apps are a mix of Windows and Linux ones: first, she's in love in Trillian, a Win32 native multi-protocol messaging client that she finds compact and easy to use. Second is Opera, which in her opinion is the best web browser and one she'd find hard to surf without. An x86 gal, Lisa uses three computers on a daily basis: her desktop, a 1.2GHz Athlon T-Bird with 640MB RAM, her testing box, a K6-2/400MHz with 128MB RAM and a buggy NIC, and her everything-server, a dual P3 (1GHz and 733MHz) running with a bunch of grsecurity restrictions. She's using 2.4.20-OpenMosix on the first two and 2.4.20-gentoo-r5 on the server. On her desktop, she uses whatever happens to be the latest release of Evolution in ~x86, under a default Gnome installation.

Last 2.5.x Kernel Out and About
With the imminent arrival of the new stable series and the recent announce that 2.5.75 will be the last 2.5.x series kernel the Gentoo users are getting more and more anxious for this version to become stable. Two Forum threads are dealing with quirks and features of the latest development sources, and the different aspects of how to get the current kernel to a rock-solid 2.6 series:
Mozilla 1.4 Grabbing Attention
The new version of Mozilla has been added to the portage tree just last week, and Gentooists have been busy giving feedback about this new release, features, bugs, compile time errors and whatnot. Check the main threads in the Forums here:
Gentoo Common Menu
Other distributions already make installed desktop applications available in their window manager menus, and in the spirit of a growing desktop orientation of many Gentooists, spikkle now asks about a Gentoo way to implement these common menus across different desktop environments. What is needed to make automatic application additions sufficiently smooth and flexible?
Heads up: Apache2 and MySQL4 moved to stable
Gentoo Linux developer Donny Davies wrote a message to the -user and -dev lists about Apache2 and MySQL4 being marked as stable. This means that, by default, emerging apache or mysql will result in those newer versions installed. If you want to stay with the older ones, the easiest way is to put some entries in /etc/portage/profiles/package.mask, as Ian Truelsen pointed out.
Choosing the Window Manager for your Tastes
Picking your window manager can sometimes be very difficult. Some are feature filled, but may be sometimes bloated. Others may lack some features, but are designed to be lightning fast. User Richard Kilgore posted to the -user list asking for feedback on a window manager that may suit his taste. He preferred it to not be ugly, but accepted keyboard input, as a mouse would not be available. In response, many users recommended xfce4, openbox, even FVWM with themes. Link here.
Problem with NVidia
User Christian Herzyk was having problems with his system and the latest NVidia drivers, version 4340. Symptoms of his system included lockups, or very slow X starting times. Recommended solutions included turning ACPI off, forcing detection of monitors, etc. Link here.
*-doc vs USE="doc"
There seem to be a couple of methods for handling documentation for packages. The very obvious one would be to simply include the documentation in the package itself. However that way eliminates options. So to give the user a choice one could split software and documentation in two, letting him install the docs separately. And of course there is the doc use flag for overall control. Alastair Tse brought it up wondering what would be the gentoo way of doing things.
Gentoo.de Now Recruiting Devs and Translators
Generational handover at Gentoo.de: The oldest non-US Gentoo website, the German www.gentoo.de needs a fresh blood injection to cover for some of the old hands who had to drop their frantic contribution schedule because of the workload in their real world commitments, on the job and in university. Beejay (Benjamin Judas) is coordinating the call for contributors at this Forum thread. Most desperately needed are translators for the Gentoo documentation and news, but also ebuild writers and developers with enough free time on their hands to help things running smoothly at the German Gentoo users group.
Gentoo Games CDs Bundled with Brazilian Linux Magazine
Revista do Linux, a monthly Linux
magazine published by the Brazilian distribution Conectiva, offers a CD with tons of Linux tools and applications in each issue. Documentations, games, new releases, complete distros, the latest kernel source, videos: every week the Revista do Linux readers are presented with an excellent collections of Free Software items, and the July issue now has the GentooGames LiveCD "Return to Castle Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory" bundled to it.
Update: New Gentoo Portugal Coordination Thread in the Forums
As reported last week, the Portuguese Gentooists are setting up their own Gentoo Linux Users Group. António Meireles (aka Datashark), a former Gentoo developer, is now requesting ideas for the setup of a fully fledged user group complete with a website and anything else that might look appropriate. Comments, ideas and suggestions to this forum thread, please.

Tips and Tricks
This week's tip demonstrates the use of screen which is a
"fullscreen window manager that multiplexes a physical terminal
between several processes." Practically speaking, this just means
you can use screen to start a process in one terminal and check the
output in another.
While there are many options to screen (man screen), this example
demonstrates starting an emerge on a remote box, and then checking on
the process from another machine.
Code Listing 9.1: screen + emerge
# emerge -u mozilla
# Ctrl-A d
Now the screen is detached, open another terminal or ssh session and view
the available screens with screen -list. To reattach to the screen
and check the command's progress, use screen -r.
Code Listing 9.2
# screen -list
There is a screen on:
1 Socket in /var/run/screen/S-david.
# screen -r
This will reattach to the screen and display the output of the emerge
Quote/Signature of the week
Our featured signature for this week comes from Christian Herzyk's post to a thread in gentoo-user about a problem with NVidia drivers: "So now I've got all these floppy-sized archive pieces, and I haven't been able to figure out what program I'm supposed to use to concat--er, never mind." - apparently it's an excerpt from a conversation he had with a friend, early in his UNIX odyssey.
