Hello world! So I am on my first gentoo-quest and am an ultra noob at this, so I apologize in advance for my ignorance. I only just touched a linux a couple of years ago (Debian) and fell in love with the freedom from all the crapware and lack-of-control the windows world (and apple) entail.

Still, I yearn to learn more and obtain even more control of my machines. I have heard that Gentoo is one such answer (other than, perhaps, a BSD of some sort).

Anywho, specifically to my issue:

I am trying to install a very minimal, command line only version of Gentoo on an old craptop (ASUS x54c; amd64). I'm also trying to use uClibc due to its lower-size, although this may be my undoing as it is what I'm having issues with atm.

I have been following the handbook for amd64, and am at the compile kernel stage (I'm using genkernel). However, it fails at this point for me. I'm at the point in the process where I am not even sure of what to ask, so I have come here in hopes someone can make some sense of this for me.

Here is the error I'm getting:

Code:
*coreutils/id.c:69:2: error: #error "Sorry, you need at least uClibc version 0.9.30 for id applet to build"


Longer snippet

But what is confounding me is that my emerge --info leads me to think I have uClibc 1.0.20:

Code:

Portage 2.3.3 (python 2.7.12-final-0, hardened/linux/uclibc/amd64, gcc-4.9.4, uclibc-ng-1.0.20, 4.9.16-gentoo x86_64)

sys-libs/uclibc != sys-libs/uclibc-ng

There may be (uclibc) library naming conventions that prevent either the coreutils ebuild or the coreutils source code from finding your uclibc-ng build. I see no reference to uclibc in the coreutils ebuilds, so figure the message you present comes during the compile phase, and comes from inside the coreutils source code. I don't see that error message in coreutils-0.8.25 source code though.

The larger snippet you presented with the error message refers to coreutils/.ln.o.d and coreutils/id.c

Those locations don't correspond to the e.g. "src/id.o" locations I get when compiling coreutils-0.8.25.

Funny, I can install uclibc along side glibc, but if I try to install uclibc-ng, it pulls in dev-libs/libiconv, which is not compatible with glibc. Both uclibc and uclibc-ng would be built including USE=inconv

What version of coreutils?

lobbes,

Welcome to Gentoo.

Your ASUS x54c is well able to support a glibc based desktop install if you want.
glibc installs are better supported as its what most people use.

If you really want to use one of the other libc's I suggest you make a multiboot system and install a mainline Gentoo first.

You don't need to install a GUI. After you boot into your own install for the first time, what you install is up to you.
There will be almost nothing at that point.

If you leave a spare partition, you can install a system based on uClibc there once you have learned the Gentoo basics.
That way, you choose which distro to use at boot time.

-- edit --

Hardened too. You are trying to eat an elephant all in one sitting.
You will get on better one plateful at a time :)

that's what i wanted to do from before the first time i installed gentoo.. then it didn't seem stable enough.

Interesting. I was able to find where my ebuilds for coreutils were located, though they also do not mention uClibc. I couldn't figure out where to find the actual source code though.

I think my coreutils is version 0.8.25 as well (not sure if the following is a valid way to check coreutils version, but assuming):
Code:

(chroot) livecd / # cat --version
cat (GNU coreutils) 8.25


All that being said, I think I may take NeddySeagoon's suggestion and ditch the uClibc for now for perhaps glibc.

Thank you all for the responses :)

lobbes,

All the downloaded source code goes to /usr/portage/distfiles unless you change the location with the DISTDIR= entry in make.conf.
The current setting is shown in emerge --info.

The downloaded files (you may need several) are compressed tarballs and not easy to work with. The ebuild command provides phase functions to help with that.
The list is
Code:
clean      cleanrm    compile    config     configure  depend     
digest     fetch      fetchall   help       info       install   
manifest   merge      nofetch    package    postinst   postrm     
preinst    prepare    prerm      pretend    qmerge     rpm       
setup      test       unmerge    unpack

When you run
Code:
ebuild </path/to/ebuild> <phase>
then all the phases up to and including <phase> are executed.
This lets you look at and work with builds in progress.

-- edit --

Your coreutils is version 8.25. That's the current stable is portage.
