I've been trying to install xorg on my virtualbox setup and it throws this error when it has to emerge xf86-video-virtualbox-4.3.28:

Code:
>>> Failed to emerge x11-drivers/xf86-video-virtualbox-4.3.28, Log file:

>>>  '/var/tmp/portage/x11-drivers/xf86-video-virtualbox-4.3.28/temp/build.log'

The log file is here: https://bpaste.net/show/0db2a6296cd8

I've been googling all around and while I see some people have the same issue - there doesn't seem to be a resolution anywhere.

Thanks

First you have this:

Checking for compiler.h: compiler.h not found

then:

/lib/modules/4.0.5-gentoo/build/include/linux/compiler.h:201:29: error

Makes me think your kernel sources are not accessible via /lib/modules/.

It's a known issue with GCC 4.8, discussed in this topic.

So basically, there's nothing I can do since portage has only up to GCC 4.8?

Actually, no, at least twice over. First, and easiest, you can try a "lower" version of GCC. Secondly, there are "higher" versions present in the tree, though not all are necessarily advisable for general adoption at the moment.
