In this video, I show my process for manually upgrading the Linux kernel to a new version on Gentoo. This can be a pretty daunting task to a newcomer, but don't worry, it isn't scary at all!NOTE: I recorded this video some time ago, but only recently finished it off and decided to upload it. Therefor, the version of the kernel that I am upgrading to is outdated by this point. The advice and directions remains the same, however!

Neuroscience, one of the most computation-reliant fields in the natural sciences, is dependent upon dozens of highly complex software suites, which scientists are often forced to manage manually. Upstream developers often ship bundled dependencies to better support this flawed workflow, and in the resulting mess documenting and reproducing analysis pipelines is neigh-impossible. We seek to correct these shortcoming of both modern software distribution as well as modern data science, by integrating high-quality ebuilds for neuroscientific software into the Gentoo Science Overlay. We also seek to publish a simple NuroGentoo world file (along with appropriate usage instructions) to allow scientists with access to OpenStack, Amazon Elastic Computing, or Docker to launch up and build a system fit for reproducing data analysis run on other NeuroGentoo systems with minimum effort.

In this video (potentially the first in a series?), I go over a weird relic I found while exploring the main Gentoo package repository: dog, which claims in its man page to be better than cat. Can this fairly aged terminal program live up to its own hype?

Spoiler alert: no. But dog has some fairly cool ideas that I felt were at least worth a quick explanatory video!

[Another delayed upload. Apologies!]

You can run scripts after an emerge --sync (or emaint-sync) using the built-in features of portage, namely the /etc/portage directories postsync.d and repo.postsync.d. This video addresses the important points of these locations and shows you how to use them.

PLEASE WATCH MY VIDEO ON WRITING EBUILD SCRIPTS BEFORE WATCHING THIS VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GY0NAAVp5mE

The ebuild command is a low-level interface to portage, Gentoo's package manager. Its main use is as a debug aid when writing custom ebuilds. In this video, I cover the basics of using this very important Gentoo command.

Gentoo has a great built-in logging feature for portage called elogs. This feature is usually not on by default, so in this video we will enable it and learn about the elog system, as well as install elogv to view and manage our elogs.

The ability to create your own ebuild scripts will open up new levels of Gentoo power. This video will guide you through the process of creating a very simple ebuild and installing it on a local custom repository.

In the world of Gentoo, masking and unmasking packages is the process by which a user controls what specific packages are able to be installed on their system. This video covers how to perform this important function.

Thanks to Let's play on Linux for the video idea suggestion!

(Correction at appx. 6:26 - "package called package.mask" should be "file called package.mask")
