*updated* emerge sync fails after bad etc-update

Post by orochi » Tue Jun 21, 2005 3:22 am

Ill admit, the weirdest thing ever, I cant connect out of my xbox. Sounds kind of vague I know, but stick with me.

Im not sure what was done to get me into this mess, maybe a bad env-update or something.

I know that dns works, but thats about it

emerge sync

Code: Select all

Pro ~ # emerge sync
>>> starting rsync with rsync://64.127.121.98/gentoo-portage...
>>> checking server timestamp ...
and thats as far as it goes

magic just times out


wget http://www.google.com/intl/en/images/logo.gif

Code: Select all

Pro ~ # wget http://www.google.com/intl/en/images/logo.gif
--03:16:53--  http://www.google.com/intl/en/images/logo.gif
           => `logo.gif'
Resolving www.google.com... 64.233.187.104, 64.233.187.99
Connecting to www.google.com[64.233.187.104]:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response...
and it hangs there, no matter what I try to wget

I have been running a apache2 server for some time now, i can wget files from my domain (1337dot.com) and localhost but nothing from the internet.

I know my internet connection is fine, i have another xbox with a fresh pro install, that has none of these issues, emerge sync works, magic works. I just dont know what to do to fix this, ive searched google, forums.gentoo.org but nothing

That second xbox is currently updating so i will just transfer my website to the new install but I would learn more from fixin this prob.

lemme know what more info you need

-jeff

*updated 11:56pm*
I had a second xbox setup with fresh pro install, did a full emerge -u world (57 packages). After, i did etc-update, removed what was shown on the FAQ's page at http://gentoox.shallax.com/modules.php? ... ral+FAQ#44 yet i have the same problem, i wish i had noted what config's I changed.

Would booting Resctoox and run magic uhoh fix this? what would the commands go to do that.

thanks

did you check the date/time on your xbox. go to the MS Dash and check if its correct. dont know if that will help but its a start.

You can just run "magic uhoh" from gentoox and that should fix the etc-update modules.
Box: XBOX ver 1.1
Mod: Xecutor 2.3 lite+
Hdd: WD 80GB
Dash: Evox, Ava, XBMC
Linux: Gentoox Pro 4.2

time and date are fine, but what i did try was

copy e:\rootfs to f:\rootfs
install new pro e:\rootfs
mkdir /mnt/oldroot
mount -o loop /mnt/fatx/f/rootfs /mnt/oldroot
chroot /mnt/oldroot /bin/bash

ran emerge sync, it works

magic uhoh still times out, i havent tried wget, is there a way to just download the .b0x script if it exists and run it?

Here's a chunk of the magic script that runs when you use "uhoh". I've stripped out a lot of the code for post-size sake, but basically it just downloads http://shallax.com:2000/patch-files/uhoh.tbz2 and copies it's contents to various places. You can manually download that file (assuming wget or the like works) and follow this script to copy the contents where it belongs and set permissions. That or at least diff these files to see which one you've modified and/or if this is the problem at all.

I think the uhoh script may also run another patch or two and rerun xbvset so if this fixes the issues, you may want to rerun magic uhoh again to fully "uhoh" it.


Code: Select all

rm -rf /tmp/uhoh*
   mkdir /tmp/uhoh
   cd /tmp/uhoh
   $wget --limit-rate=${limitrate} $gentooxurl/patch-files/uhoh.tbz2
   tar -jxf /tmp/uhoh/uhoh.tbz2

Was this ever resolved? I'm having the same problem and I can't figure out what it is. The confiuration seems to be fine. There are no errors being logged. I can ping whatever just fine. I can even conect to the sites. For some reason it just hangs at "awaiting response" for all http requests. Does anyone know if there is a standard library or configuration that handles these requests? Gentoox doesn't have a firewall running does it? What other network security could be causing this?


I'm just having a hell of a time getting Gentoo on this thing. I first tried installing home, but for some reason it wouldn't clean the packages properly. I ran emerge -uND world && emerge depclean && revdep-rebuild and the install grew past 4G (/usr/portage/distfiles and /var/tmp/portage was clean.

After that I just tried a Gentoo-Xbox install. After using some of Shallax's config files, loader, and initrd it worked! Of course it for some reason had the loop0 process constantly running over 50% of the cpu, rendering the system virtually useless!

After that I just tried pro. I upgraded and installed all the programs nessesary (using another computer) and that resolved the previous two problems. Of course now it has this strange problem. . . I just want to scream now.

Does no one know what could cause this?

I did some more testing and I come to find out that GentooX also uses the same amount of proccessing power for loop0. I knew that there would be some overhead, but my God!

I also noticed that both, updated GendooX and updated Gentoo-Xbox, have the same networking problems.

This has to be either a library malfunction or a confureation problem, e.g. the new system requiring different configuration somehow, but I don't know enough about how linux implements nerworking beyond the basic routing and IP principles.

Update: I just updated everything again and a new baselayout was available. Aparrently that fixed the problem becase it can now connect just fine. . . Oh, that was on Gentoo-Xbox, but I'm sure the same will be true for GentooX.

Now if only I can figure out why the alsa driver won't detect the audio even with the xbox=1 parameter and why MythTV is giving me incorret recoding legths I'd be good. . .

I caused this because I did a bad etc-update

Strange, it did in on my machine because of a bad baselayout package. After upgrading baselayout it worked. Same symtems, but aparently different problems.
