Hi

Code:


Failed to emerge sys-devel/bc-1.06.95-r1, Log file:

I did notice your MAKE_OPTS , most likely in your /etc/make.conf or /etc/portage/make.conf contains two dashes:

--j 2

It should only have 1 dash:

-j 2

See if this fixes the problem.

merta,

Welcome to Gentoo.

Where did --j2 come from on the compiler command line?

Look in your /etc/portage/make.conf file
It appears that you have a
Code:
MAKEOPTS="--j2"
entry.
Its only a single "-"
Code:
MAKEOPTS="-j2"

First, @ eccerr0r and @ NeddySeagoon thank you so much for your speed of light response. That solved my problem!

I mistyped that part

Since I am new in this I couldn't understand the error output. But now I can see better thanks a lot!
