From what I've quickly read up on it sounds like portage is broken.

Try either:
shutdown -rF
which should restart your box and force a fsck file system check.

Or:
download Resctoox and do the fsck through that.

Either way after the fsck rerun emerge sync again and let let us know the results!

Now I've not tested this to see if the tools are there or anything like that.... this is off the top of my head... From the "HOWTO: Fully Native" sticky And format, # mkreiserfs /dev/hda2 # mkswap /dev/hda1 # swapon /dev/hda1 Should just be replacing mkreiserfs /dev/hda2 with mkfs -t ext3 /dev/hda2

I use xvncviewer viewer in Ubuntu to connect to Gentoox?s vnc server (available in synaptic package manager)

In XP I used to just use IE to connect to the VNC as described in the Q&A section on the main site

Try connecting to your XBOX via SSH and running xbvset. You could also try connecting with your browser to see if the VNC server is running.

Just to make sure are you executing the following lines after changing the resolv.conf file to update the current setup of your network?

sudo /etc/init.d/net.eth0 restart
