Emerge errors?

Post by cheesyboofs » Mon Sep 12, 2005 10:20 pm

How do you get around a file not found error when you have just done an emerge sync then emerge samba and you get;

Code: Select all

>>> Downloading ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/pub/libtiff/tiff-3.7.3.tar.gz
--23:17:27--  ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/pub/libtiff/tiff-3.7.3.tar.gz
           => `/usr/portage/distfiles/tiff-3.7.3.tar.gz'
Resolving ftp.remotesensing.org... 209.172.33.142
Connecting to ftp.remotesensing.org[209.172.33.142]:21... connected.

==> PASV ... done.    ==> RETR tiff-3.7.3.tar.gz ...
No such file `tiff-3.7.3.tar.gz'.

I had this same problem. What you can do is go find the file elsewhere on the web and put it into your portage tree manually. That or find another emerge database that has it and point yours to that one instead. Can't quite remember how to do that, but it was addressed elsewhere on the forums so a search might find it. Easiest to just go download that file from elsewhere on the web (google it) and plunk it into your portage tree with all the other tgz's (/usr/portage/distfiles).

Code: Select all

cd /usr/portage/distfiles
wget http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/graphics/libs/alsolibs/tiff-3.7.3.tar.gz
emerge samba

Thank you very much, you are a true gent. I was hunting around the gentoo forum and was in the right place, didn’t know it was just a matter of dropping it in the dist’ folder, nice one!

This forum has such a great sense of community.
