Portage Problems with Gentoo

Post by pheadxdll » Sat Jun 10, 2006 9:00 pm

When I start emerge, It gives me this message:

ARCH is not set... Are you missing the /etc/make.profile symlink?
Is the symlink correct? Is your portage tree complete.

I'm very new to gentoo. Please help. :D

I've suggested this - but no-one has confirmed it..

You might try it and give us some feedback..

(it worked when I it..)

Code: Select all

xbox etc # ln -sf /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/no-nptl/2.4 /etc/make.profile 
xbox etc #

Quick and dirty setup howto (does that make sense? lol)

Installed e: way tho i hd to use rescutoox to ftp over to /mnt/e/rootfs



emerge --sync

cd /etc/
rm make.profile
ln -s ../usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2006.0 make.profile

emerge portage
etc-update

magic


login as root and change password
change password for gentoox

emerge --sync for kicks, and emerge system (or emerge world)


may have to magic fix alsa && magic, emerge system will update alsa to 1.0.11 or something


etc-update

Running "magic" would fix all these problems for you. It fixes the profile AND syncs for you!

Magic has done that for over a year ;)


FYI: ln -s ../usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2006.0 make.profile

^^ that is TOTALLY the wrong profile to use! You should be using the no-nptl profile... otherwise it still start pulling in crazy stuff like linux-2.6... bleh!
