Magic error

Post by FlamingGooch » Fri Aug 18, 2006 2:39 am

I have two problems, one I just looked at that the solution was posted by Shallax, but it didnt work for me, it gave me an error that I posted in another thread. Anyway, I SSH into my box, run magic, and it fails. It fails every single time I try it. wtf is going on. Here is the error:

>>> Updating Portage cache:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/emerge", line 2983, in ?
conf = portage.config(config_profile_path=portage.settings.profile_path[:], \
TypeError: unsubscriptable object

!! Sync failed.
!! If the error occurred during 'Updating Portage cache', try
!! running 'emerge --metadata' then re-running magic.
!! Check your network settings and try again.

That happens every time I try it. Can someone tell me whats going on?

EDIT: This should probably be the newb forum or the Q&A forum. Sorry.

Maybe you should try doing what it says (emerge --metadata).
