Running a free Gentoo

Posted 10-29-2012 at 04:52 PM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

Gentoo is overall a great distribution, but unfortunately it is not dedicated to free software with the same determination as distributions like Trisquel and gNewSense. If you have been running Gentoo for a while, but are not familiar with this issue, you may be surprise to learn how much non-free software is in your system, from application software to the kernel.

The offset to this, however, is that built-in Gentoo mechanisms make it very easy to change this configuration, so as...

There is now a package in Gentoo Portage for Retrobattle. Just "emerge retrobattle". (You may have to unmask it first.)

Retrobattle is a retro-style arcade game by Daniel Remar and Andreas Remar. It's like of one of the early NES games where you move a character around a maze on a screen, shooting stuff (robots, gigantic snakes...) and collecting items (coins, super weapons...). Authentic look and feel, although somehow "smoother" than the old games I remember....

gentoo stage3-x86-uclibc-2008.0 hacking

Posted 01-08-2011 at 02:47 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Long time no posting
Today I'm going to describe my so called experience with gentoo stage3 from 2008, linked against uClibc, a tiny C library for developing embedded environments.
I first met uClibc on my router's tomato-usb firmware. I was amazed when I've seen how small memory usage was, even for coreutils-apps.
Since that I was looking for decent inspiration to try out building my own uClibc-based environment. As I previously wrote (I think I did), I once was an assembler...

chroot PHP for use with nginx

Posted 10-31-2010 at 10:40 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I never had to deal with chrooted environment before, and there isn't lots of info out there on the net. Best result I've found so far is http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/howto-...oted-jail.html
Actually, it covers almost entire topic, but I'm going to explain how to bind it with nginx in gentoo linux environment.
Say, you have a site example.org with some app you don't really trust in /app dir. Your own-written site scripts are executed in non-chrooted PHP environment...
