Following Handbook:AMD64, I am current installing Gentoo and after executing
Code:
emerge-webrsync
I got this message
Quote:
!!! /etc/portage/make.profile is not a symlink and will probably prevent most merges.
!!! It should point into a profile within /usr/portage/profiles/
!!! (You can safely ignore this message when syncing. It's harmless.)

I'm in the step where I need to pick a profile but
Code:
eselect profile list
!!! Error: Failed to get a list of valid profiles

I checked and found out that the profiles directory does not exist
Code:
ls /usr/portage/pro* returns No such file or directory

I may have made a mistake somewhere in the previous steps but I'm not sure where.

running
Code:
emerge --sync
fixed it.
Though it is labeled as optional in the handbook.
