News and information from Gentoo Linux
  1. FOSDEM 2018 logo

    Put on your cow bells and follow the herd of Gentoo developers to Université libre de Bruxelles in Brussels, Belgium. This year FOSDEM 2018 will be held on February 3rd and 4th.

    Our developers will be ready to candidly greet all open source enthusiasts at the Gentoo stand in building K. Visit this year’s wiki page to see which developer will be running the stand during the different visitation time slots. So far seven developers have specified their attendance, with most-likely more on the way!

    Unlike past years, Gentoo will not be hosting a keysigning party, however participants are encouraged to exchange and verify OpenPGP key data to continue building the Gentoo Web of Trust. See the wiki article for more details.

  2. As you may know the core of sys-kernel/hardened-sources has been the grsecurity patches. Recently the grsecurity developers have decided to limit access to these patches. As a result, the Gentoo Hardened team is unable to ensure a regular patching schedule and therefore the security of the users of these kernel sources. Thus, we will be masking hardened-sources on the 27th of August and will proceed to remove them from the main ebuild repository by the end of September. We recommend to use sys-kernel/gentoo-sources instead. Userspace hardening and support for SELinux will of course remain in the Gentoo ebuild repository. Please see the full news item for additional information and links.

    Upcoming weekend, 19-20th August 2017, there will be a Gentoo booth again at the FrOSCon “Free and Open Source Conference” 12, in St. Augustin near Bonn! Visitors can see Gentoo live in action, get Gentoo swag, and prepare, configure, and compile their own Gentoo buttons. See you there!

  4. FOSDEM 2017 logo

    As FOSDEM 2017 approaches we are happy to announce there are a total of five Gentoo developers scheduled to give talks!

    Developers and their talks include:

    Only a few hours remain until the event kicks off. See you at FOSDEM!

  5. FOSDEM 2017 logo

    On February, 4th and 5th, Gentoo will be attending FOSDEM 2017 in Brussels, Belgium.

    This year one of our own, Jason A Donenfeld (zx2c4), will be speaking on WireGuard: a next generation secure kernel network tunnel.

    Similar to last year, the event will be hosted at Université libre de Bruxelles. Gentoo developers will be taking rotating shifts at the Gentoo stand with gadgets, swag, and a new 2017 LiveDVD. You can visit this wiki article to see which developer will be manning the stand when you drop by.

    We are looking forward to seeing those in the community who have been hard at work on their quizzes!
