XMMS being removed
------------------

As many of you are probably aware, XMMS is being removed from the tree next
month. XMMS has many bugs and requires heavy patching, upstream development
and bug-fixes have ceased in favor of the forthcoming XMMS2 and XMMS has no
Gentoo maintainer. Audacious is compatible with existing themes and the
various Audacious developers have been working with the Gentoo community to
ease the transition.

More information about this change can be found at
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/sound/xmms.xml.

#gentoo-uk under new management
-------------------------------

With the recent retirement of Gentoo developer Tim Yamin (plasmaroo), the
the #gentoo‑uk IRC channel is now managed by Roy Bamford[1]. The #gentoo-uk
IRC channel is an English speaking IRC channel mainly for discussion of
Gentoo, Linux and other computer related topics. As it is a small channel,
the topic rules are relaxed depending on the current business of the
channel. However, #gentoo-uk has grown by 25% or so over the last year and
as a result, #gentoo-chat has been created as an 'overflow' to allow
otherwise off-topic conversations to be started or continued when on-topic
chatter picks up in #gentoo-uk. This appears to be working well so far, with
most users nudging one another to move to #gentoo-chat to allow on-topic
conversations to have priority in the main channel.

   1. NeddySeagoon@g.o

There are no residency requirements for dropping in or being a regular - the
channel already has several continental contributors. As #gentoo-uk is much
quieter than the main #gentoo English language support channel, new IRC
users may find it a better place to get started than #gentoo - getting to
know their IRC clients and make their mistakes within a small friendly
group. It also works well for trying to resolve those protracted issues as
there is less distracting material being posted.

Please drop in and say hello, stay a while, or even add us to your auto-join
list!

CJK team looking for help
-------------------------

The Gentoo CJK team is understaffed, most of the packages in the tree are
old and not actively maintained (on the Gentoo side). As support for CJK
languages is something Gentoo would rather not lose, Diego Pettenò
(Flameeyes) asks that people interested in maintaining some of the packages
contact the CJK team, so that eventual proxy maintainers can be appointed
(and eventually lead to the mentoring of the most interested).

Please contact the CJK team[2] if you're interested in maintaining a package
already in portage or if you want to add a new package that might replace
one already there.

   2. cjk@g.o

Scheme team looking for help
----------------------------

The Gentoo Scheme herd maintainers are seriously understaffed at this time.
Interested parties will either need to currently be a Gentoo developer, or
be willing to become a developer to begin maintaining these packages.

If you have an interest in Scheme and the Gentoo project, you are encouraged
to contact recruiters@g.o and start working towards becoming a
developer today.

Turkish translation team needs your help
----------------------------------------

The newly-revived GWN Turkish translation team is looking for help
translating the GWN each week. Interested parties need good written English
and Turkish skills and the availability to work on a weekly schedule. If
you're interested in helping with the team, please contact the GWN at
gwn-feedback@g.o for more information. There is also a Turkish IRC
channel, #gentoo-tr, which could use soem more Turkish-speaking visitors and
would be a great place to collaborate on the translations.

date in emerge logs

Jorge Almeida wanted to know if the cryptic numbers (e.g., "1161911504") at
the beginning of each line in his emerge log were dates, and if so, how to
render them human readable. Harm Geerts confirmed that the figure was Unix
time ("the number of seconds elapsed since midnight UTC on the morning of
January 1, 1970, not counting leap seconds") and suggested translating it
using Python.

+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Code Listing 2.1                                                          |
| Converting from UNIX time with python                                     |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| $ python -c "import time; print time.ctime(1161911504)"                   |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Bo Ørsted Andresen suggested using awk, instead.

+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Code Listing 2.2                                                           |
| Converting from UNIX time with awk #1                                      |
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| $ tail /var/log/emerge.log | awk -F: '{print strftime("%D %X %Z", $1),$2}' |
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Peter Ruskin amended this to be shorter and less internationally ambiguous
in its output.

+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Code Listing 2.3                                                          |
| Converting from UNIX time with awk #2                                     |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| $ tail /var/log/emerge.log | awk -F: '{print strftime("%c", $1),$2}'      |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+

The last (and to Jorge most suitable) solution was Richard Fish's.

+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Code Listing 2.4                                                          |
| Converting from UNIX time using date                                      |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| $ date -d @1161911504                                                     |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+

There were also suggestions for more portage-specific solutions: Neil
Bothwick suggested emerging app-portage/genlop, an emerge log parsing
application. Harm Geerts suggested qlop, which is part of the
app-portage/portage-utils package.

resolv.conf question/Editing /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to pass options to dhcpcd

Two different users were having similar problems with dhcpcd and
resolv.conf. When he booted, Matthew Lee's resolv.conf file was being
overwritten by a version with no DNS nameservers in it. Michael Sullivan
wanted dhcpcd not to overwrite his resolv.conf.

Richard Fish suggested that Michael read /etc/conf.d/net.example. He pointed
out that if Michael really wanted full control of his dhcp options, he could
use something like dhcpcd_INTERFACE="DHCP PARAMETERS". However, an easier
way to accomplish the goal would be generic dhcp parameters in the form
dhcp_INTERFACE="nodns".

Novensiles divi Flamen had the same suggestion for Matthew, while Vikas
Kumar suggested dns_servers_INTERFACE=( "DNS SERVER 1 IP" "DNS SERVER 2 IP" ).

gentoo-catalyst
---------------

Finally getting around to building live CDs with Catalyst

Ed Borasky is using catalyst to build a Gentoo-based live CD for advanced
applied mathematics (see
http://rubyforge.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/Rameau/Rameau.pdf?root=cougar&view=co ). During the course of building, he had to unmask the hard-masked
sys-apps/gli, the Gentoo Linux Installer. He wanted to know if that was
correct and also how to create a live CD without installer.

To the first question, Andrew Gaffney suggested use of portage_overlay in
the spec file or unmasking gli in Ed's snapshot. To create a non-installer
live CD, gli should be removed entirely from the spec file.

Ed also wanted to know how to install some testing packages and whether
there was an overlay for make.conf. Chris Gianelloni said that there wasn't
by design (since catalyst's purpose is creating releases, for which unstable
software cannot be used). However, Ed could mark whatever packages he wanted
stable in his snapshot.

Ed responded that since he needed only a few unstable packages, this would
work for him.

EngadgetHD (Oct 26 2006)
------------------------

Author Ben Drawbaugh details how to upgrade the hard drive in a Series3
TiVo. What software does he recommend to use when copying your data to your
shiny new drive? Why, Gentoo, of course. Drawbaugh describes using the
Minimal InstallCD and dd to copy the data.

XMMS and friends:
-----------------

Due to the large volume of packages in the XMMS masking, they have been
added into a section of their own. This is to ensure that they get proper
exposure, as this affects many people and is a hotly-debated item.
