PostPosted: Thu Nov 22, 2018 4:27 pm    Post subject: Installation help *SOLVED* Reply with quote

Hi, everyone, and happy Thanksgiving!

I've been away for a while, I'm attempting to get back into the Gentoo world. The problem is that I'm very rusty and will need some help! I followed the installation guide to the letter, however, I had trouble getting my kernel to boot (obviously I didn't have it configured properly for my hardware). Due to time constraints, I haven't been able to work with it much. Now I am freed up to get it running, and I'm running into another problem trying to update my world so that I can "get back on this horse". When I enter:
Code:
emerge -uDNvp world


I get the following block:
Code:
[blocks B      ] sys-libs/glibc ("sys-libs/glibc" is blocking dev-libs/libintl-0.19.7)
[blocks B      ] sys-libs/glibc ("sys-libs/glibc" is blocking dev-libs/libiconv-1.14-r1)

Total: 169 packages (136 upgrades, 8 new, 5 in new slots, 20 reinstalls, 31 uninstalls), Size of downloads: 662,992 KiB
Conflict: 34 blocks (2 unsatisfied)

!!! Multiple package instances within a single package slot have been pulled
!!! into the dependency graph, resulting in a slot conflict:

sys-libs/gdbm:0

  (sys-libs/gdbm-1.13-r2:0/1.13::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by
    (no parents that aren't satisfied by other packages in this slot)

  (sys-libs/gdbm-1.11:0/0::gentoo, installed) pulled in by
    sys-libs/gdbm:0/0=[berkdb] required by (dev-lang/python-3.6.5:3.6/3.6m::gentoo, installed)
                 ^^^^^

    (and 1 more with the same problem)

NOTE: Use the '--verbose-conflicts' option to display parents omitted above

It may be possible to solve this problem by using package.mask to
prevent one of those packages from being selected. However, it is also
possible that conflicting dependencies exist such that they are
impossible to satisfy simultaneously.  If such a conflict exists in
the dependencies of two different packages, then those packages can
not be installed simultaneously.

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man
page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.


 * Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be
 * installed at the same time on the same system.

  (sys-libs/glibc-2.23-r4:2.2/2.2::gentoo, installed) pulled in by

For more information about Blocked Packages, please refer to the following
section of the Gentoo Linux x86 Handbook (architecture is irrelevant):

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:X86/Working/Portage#Blocked_packages


The following USE changes are necessary to proceed:
 (see "package.use" in the portage(5) man page for more details)
# required by sys-kernel/genkernel-3.5.3.3::gentoo
# required by @selected
# required by @world (argument)
>=sys-apps/util-linux-2.32-r4 static-libs
# required by sys-boot/os-prober-1.76-r1::gentoo
# required by @selected
# required by @world (argument)
>=sys-boot/grub-2.02-r1 mount

Use --autounmask-write to write changes to config files (honoring
CONFIG_PROTECT). Carefully examine the list of proposed changes,
paying special attention to mask or keyword changes that may expose
experimental or unstable packages.

 * In order to avoid wasting time, backtracking has terminated early
 * due to the above autounmask change(s). The --autounmask-backtrack=y
 * option can be used to force further backtracking, but there is no
 * guarantee that it will produce a solution.

!!! The following installed packages are masked:
- sys-libs/glibc-2.23-r4::gentoo (masked by: package.mask)
/usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
# Micha�� G��rny <mgorny@gentoo.org>, Andreas K. H��ttel <dilfridge@gentoo.org>,
# Matthias Maier <tamiko@gentoo.org> (21 May 2017 and later updates)
# These old versions of toolchain packages (binutils, gcc, glibc) are no
# longer officially supported and are not suitable for general use. Using
# these packages can result in build failures (and possible breakage) for
# many packages, and may leave your system vulnerable to known security
# exploits.
# If you still use one of these old toolchain packages, please upgrade (and
# switch the compiler / the binutils) ASAP. If you need them for a specific
# (isolated) use case, feel free to unmask them on your system.


Note, I just copied the blocks that were pulled in for simplicity. I was hoping someone could help guide me through what I need to do. I truly appreciate all the help I can get!

Thanks!

Todd

Welcome back!

Well, for these portage conflicts, you never solve first error first like most debugging situations. At least IMHO the first priority is to solve all "required" USE, and possibly but not always MASK conflicts. So your first priority is to deal with genkernel wanting util-linux with USE=static-libs and os-prober wanting grub with USE=mount :
add

Code:
# required by sys-kernel/genkernel-3.5.3.3::gentoo
# required by @selected
# required by @world (argument)
>=sys-apps/util-linux-2.32-r4 static-libs
# required by sys-boot/os-prober-1.76-r1::gentoo
# required by @selected
# required by @world (argument)
>=sys-boot/grub-2.02-r1 mount

to your /etc/portage/package.use - if there's a directory there, then create a file in that directory and add these to that file.

Then try the emerge again and see if Portage can solve the remaining issues. It likely can!

Something is wrong, you said this is a new install? Why the installed packages are so old? Did you use some old stage-3 tarball?

Sort of new, I started this about a year ago, then ran into errors, then I was unable to come back to it until now. Is there something else I need to do to get this up to current standards before proceeding?

Thanks!

Maybe it should be better to start with a recent stage3 tarfile as correcting dependencies of year old packages might be time consuming. You can copy several of the already configured items and the kernel configuration to the new stage3 if needed, to speed up things.

If you have no attachment to the install, it may be better just to start with a fresh stage3...

I was wondering because glibc-2.23 is old... In any case a lot of the times it is able to update to newest - though it may be easier to start fresh if you have not been using that install.

todd93,

If you want the educational experience, fix what you have. For a working Gentoo in the shortest possible time, start again.

After a year of not updating, you will have to do the update in several parts, which will involve building several packages several times.

You guys are making this choice a tough one lol! I have no attachment to this build, as I never got my kernel to boot. I would like to have the educational experience, as I know the current stage 3 I have is probably stable, and I do have some time and need the refresher in Gentoo. So I probably will fix what I have.

I've always appreciated your help, NeddySeagoon, I have gotten countless amounts of help from you over the years!

Thanks again!

Ok, I was rolling along, updating the packages that needed updated, however, about 2/3 of the way through, I'm getting a failure, and I'm not sure what is making this package fail (I know it's stated in the log here, but I don't know what steps to take.) Once I get these updated, I will move into kernel configuration and attempt to get my kernel to boot, but one thing at a time.

Code:

Emerging (1 of 64) sys-libs/uclibc-ng-1.0.30-r1::gentoo
 * Fetching files in the background.
 * To view fetch progress, run in another terminal:
 * tail -f /var/log/emerge-fetch.log

 * S: '/var/tmp/portage/sys-libs/uclibc-ng-1.0.30-r1/work/uClibc-ng-1.0.30'


I do apologize, I'm quite rusty on Gentoo, and deciphering what needs to be done to make these packages succeed.

Thanks

todd93,

Why does your system think it needs sys-libs/uclibc-ng ?
Thats a libc aimed at embedded systems.

Please post the output of
Code:
emerge --info

That is a great question! I wouldn't be surprised if I've screwed something up here.

todd93,

Your profile is
Code:
default/linux/amd64/17.0/uclibc/hardened
notice the uclibc in there.
You have
Code:
sys-libs/glibc:           2.23-r4::gentoo
installed.
That may be not be your own install as your kernel is 4.5.2-aufs-r1

If you want an everyday desktop Gentoo, choose another profile.
Code:
[56]  default/linux/amd64/17.0/uclibc/hardened (exp)
even comes with the (exp)erimental warning label.

To build a uclibc install, you need to start with a uclibc stage3. Did you?
If not, choose on of the stable default/linux/amd64/17.0... profiles that most closely matches your use case.

-- edit --

You probably want to remove bindist from your USE flags too. That causes portage to remove some functionality and branding, so that the resulting binaries can be distributed.

NeddySeagoon,

Yes, you're correct! I feel so foolish! I have corrected that problem and selected the following profile:
Code:

default/linux/amd64/17.0/desktop/gnome (stable)


That's changed the outlook some, now when I enter:
Code:

emerge -uDNvp world


I get the following failure:

todd93,

What does
Code:
mount
say about /dev/pts ?
/dev/pts is not usually listed in /etc/fstab.

This is glibc refusing to spoil your day. If you are in a chroot, still installing, skip the emerge @world step until you can boot into your own kernel, then that should go away on its own.
If you really want to do the emerge @world now, use the --keep-going option. glibc will still fail but portage will update whatever it can. You can do glibc later.

Another word of warning. The default/linux/amd64/17.0/desktop/gnome profile demands that you use systemd, as Gnome depends on it.

There are two paths to get systemd. There is a systemd stage3. If you start there it avoids fhe openrc/systemd switch. That's documented on the wiki.

NeddySeagoon,

Ok, that makes sense. I do have a question, however, before I go to redoing my stage3. I'm planning on using MATE instead of Gnome. Since MATE is a Gnome 2 fork, does it also depend on systemd? That's sort of a needless question, as it looks like I will probably have to start over with the stage3 install and get the right one.

Thanks

Todd

todd93,

MATE does not require systemd. For mate, choose the default/linux/amd64/17.0/desktop profile.

What does
Code:
emerge -pv eudev
tell you?
If you have systemd already, you will get a message about eudev being blocked. If not, you will have eudev installed already.
You can't have both at the same time.

If you already have eudev, fix your profile and continue your install. There is no need to start again.

More correctly and completely, there is never any need to start again. You can always get from where you are now to where you want to be. It may be faster in some situations to start over though.
There are a few commands that will destroy your Gentoo but you won't encounter them in normal use. I'm not posting them here.

Very good, apparently I do have systemd already, as eudev has 28 blocks, having to do with x11-base/xorg-proto, or similar packages. Since I have systemd, do I need to choose the regular desktop profile still?

I get what you're saying, I wish I hadn't stayed away from Gentoo for so long, I always loved it. I stared back in the 90's when a friend of mine who I graduated HS with introduced me to Red Hat. He showed me a Linux-wide command that would do serious damage, however, I conveniently didn't learn it, he showed me as a lesson of why you should never run as root, always have a user account. Important lesson!

Thanks again!
Todd

todd93,

What you do now depends on your view of systemd. I'm going to start a systemd flamefest here if I'm not careful.

You can continue with systemd, since you already have it. Its reported to work but I've not tested it.
You can swap to openrc and everything that goes with it.
You can start over with the non systemd stage3

We have a The Politics of systemd Part 3 to discuss the merits of systemd.
Post there unless your post offers factual technical advice.

NeddySeagoon,

Funny you should say that, I've used systemd in my previous Gentoo install, and I had nothing but trouble with it. Of course, I don't want to start a firestorm either, I just simply want to choose not to use it. I think I would like to start over with a non systemd stage3, if I can get far away from it, I would have a better experience, as I don't ever see myself going back to Gnome.

Thanks!

Todd

NeddySeagoon,

One more question, since I'm starting over with the proper stage3, I backed all the way out of the terminal, at what point in the installation guide should I start with the commands. My disks have been properly partitioned/formatted, now I have to get to the point of installing the stage3 tarball, but I'm not sure where in the guide to actually start.

Thanks

Todd

todd93,

If you are happy with your partitions, start with making filesystems. That's the easiest way to a 'clean' start.
You might want to save /etc/portage for reference, as you set up your new install. Don't try to use it as is.

Okay, I know I'm being a pest, but when I start there, I get the following error:
Code:

bash: mkfs.ext2: command not found

I know this is probably simple, so forgive me if I missed something, as I'm confused as to how to get where I need to be in order to start here.

Thanks

todd93,

Boot your install media. Do not mount anything, then make your filesystems.
At that point, mount your root onto /mnt/gentoo and untar the stage3 to /mnt/gentoo.

You can't emerge anything until you have the stage3 and chrooted into it.
mkfs will refuse to destroy a file system in use, so even if you had it, you couldn't use it.

NeddySeagoon,

Ok, I'm rolling along pretty good, one question is: Do I need to use initramfs? I know it's not possible for you to know my hardware configuration, but I'm not sure if it's needed, or if I can boot/run without it. I am going to start with the genkernel until I can get refreshed on everything. That's where my problem was when I started this install, I didn't have something in my kernel configured properly and it wouldn't boot.

Thanks!
Todd

todd93,

If you build everything into the kernel to get as far as mounting the root filesystem, no initrd is needed.

When you need user space tools, like mdadm, lvm2, crypto etc, they must go in the initrd, since they are required before the kernel can even see the root filesystem to mount it to read user space tools, like mdadm, lvm2, crypto etc. The boot process has lots of infinite recursions like that that have to be broken.

As you say, you can bypass this particular learning opportunity by using genkernel to get started, then roll your own kernel at a convenient kernel update.
That will allow you to have two (or more) kernels in the bootloader menu. One that works, one providing your learning experience.
Its a verybadthing to overwrite your only working kernel as everyone makes a dud from time to time.

-- edit --

If you can boil the initrd down to user space tools only, it becomes kernel agnostic, so it almost never needs to be updated. My initrd is from 2009.
