Dear all,

Does anyone the right procedure to enable sockets on a Gentoo Release 2?
There are tons of posts, none of them is working. If you have succeeded, I would probably erect you a statue!

Many thanks!

The best achievement is to scratch that horrible thing

Hi Xavier,

Thank you. What do you recommend? Moving to another hosting companies, take a new server at OVH and install it myself, scratch the current server... ?

  1. Move your hosting to a competent company.
  2. Let OVH know that their broken, fake "Gentoo" and their refusal to remedy the situation is the reason why they're losing business.
  3. Install a real, working Gentoo on your new server.

Thank you. What company do you recommend in France?

The natural way to install Gentoo lends itself so well to any server brought up in rescue mode (with a recent Linux kernel ofc). Rarely there is need to ragequit a provider just because it doesn't do Gentoo well. If the network is good and hardware.... Personally, I wouldn't touch OVH for another set of reasons, but that's beside the point.

Also... what's "enabling sockets"?

PhilippeGentoo,

Gentoo is really only a toolkit that you use to make your own Linux distro. When OVH made Gentoo Release 2, they used the Gentoo build system to make a Linux distro.
Unfortunately OVH Gentoo Release 2 has been neglected for many years. The accepted way to update an install that old is to reinstall.

It can be updated but it will take much longer than a fresh Gentoo install.
