devsk:

Hmm. I'm not having a very good time with this. I'm emerging kahakai and on average about 50% of the ebuilds seems to fail. Mostly development libraries and media libraries. The majority of these already seemed to be installed via rpm so I injected them into portage and continued on with my emerge. Basicly my question is: Is it normal to have about 50% of your ebuilds fail to compile while using portage on a different distro?

geforce:

Yah, more or less but it doesn't seem to work as seemlessly as it does on a pure-gentoo system.

if you post some errors, we can see if its the portage internal system which is causing the problem or if its something distro specific....on FC1 and now on FC2, I have used portage fairly well without a single problem....so 50% is kinda large number...I don't get that many errors even on solaris hacked version of portage.

Installing portage on a 'vanilla' debian sarge/testing installation (for x86). This has worked for me using the 20040104 debian-installer CD.

Using tasksel, select Development/C/C++, and install them. I'm too lazy to stuff around with dependencies, and this seems to cover most portage's dependencies without breaking much or installing too much software. I found xfree and a couple of other packages failed to install here, because they weren't on the apt mirror I was using. If this occurs for everyone else, then this is a Debian problem, not a problem with this mini-Howto or Gentoo. A workaround to this is:

Code:
apt-get --fix-missing dselect-upgrade


And then we continue.

Code:
# Update existing packages that were installed using debian-installer from the CD.
apt-get upgrade

# Remove CVS and Subversion, they're definitely not needed right now.
apt-get remove cvs subversion

# Install python, rysnc, bzip2.  Why bzip2 is not in the development stuff or installed by default is honestly beyond me.
apt-get install python2.2 python2.2-dev rsync bzip2

# remove the uucp group (and user).
userdel uucp

# add wheel
groupadd -g 10 wheel

# install gawk using apt.
apt-get install gawk

# run the portage installer (from the start of this thread).
chmod 700 gentooise.sh
./gentooise.sh

# edit /etc/make.conf:
nano -w /etc/make.conf


Here you'll need to set your FEATURES flag (about line 270) to include userpriv. Create this on a new line; don't use the template given. You should also setup your USE flags, and CFLAGS.

Code:
# emerge gawk
emerge -Ov gawk

# after the access violation, you'll need to merge the package yourself.  Replace [version] with the version number of gawk that's in portage.
cp -rv /var/tmp/portage/gawk-[version]/image/* /

# and tell portage gawk is installed
emerge inject sys-apps/gawk-[version]

# and inject portage's deps, so you don't have complaints later.
emerge inject `emerge -p portage | gawk -F" " '{ print $4 }'`

# emerge openssl, this takes some time, due to the size of the package and the crypto-tests it runs.
emerge openssl

# here I rebooted, merely to test my faith, and see if everything went OK.  You can skip this if you like.
reboot

# after reboot, and logging in as root, we need to emerge ncurses.  This also takes some time.
emerge ncurses

# you'll need to update the ncurses configs using etc-update.  only if emerge asks you to do so, however.
etc-update

# now emerge grep
emerge grep

# this failed for me with an access violation (/var/backups/infodir.bak).  so we need to merge grep ourselves.
cp -rvf /var/tmp/portage/grep-[version]/image/* /
emerge inject sys-apps/grep-[version]

# emerge gentoolkit.
emerge gentoolkit


If you use any non-ext2/3 partitions, I found Debian (using the 20040103 debian-installer CD) forgets to install the fsck for them. You should do that now, as per section 10c of the Installation Handbook.

Now you should be able to install applications using emerge (Portage). Try to avoid using apt and dpkg now, as they will probably break your install through conflicting dependencies. You should also start to emerge important missing packages like fortune-mod-all ;)

Some portage applications require (real) perl from portage, which we injected (fake installed) earlier. You'll need to emerge it properly:

Code:
emerge gdbm libperl perl


But bear in mind this will break apt.

Update (2004-06-21): You also should emerge flex.

-----

This should be made into a proper howto, but it seems nobody so far is willing to do this...:roll: I could write it, just give me some notice first, and I don't have the time to go and download every distro on the plan, install it, break it, lather, rinse, repeat; so I coudn't write a howto by myself. I could contribute my experience with using Debian and the portage installer, and collect some of the others in this thread, though.

A good patch to the portage installer script is if you get emerge to do a emerge-webrsync then emerge sync. That way, you only have to get one big file over (ht|f)tp, instead of lots of little ones over rsync. Then the emerge sync will only have to get a much smaller amount of files. It's probably faster that way.

And as for uucp, hopefully it's nothing important. On my laptop I plan to run a local apache setup, with php and mono, along with mysql server, so I can do my development work on there.

Wow, installing portage on debian. You are a brave person! Don't let them know you did that.

I'd love to help work on a howto for this. I can add my experience with Mandrake 10.0. I'll be starting over from scratch sometime soon since I was having unrelated kernel problems. I'll let everyone know how it goes.

Yeah, reading posts on the debian-users mailing list about availiblity of Portage on Debian, they didn't seem terribly happy about the idea :)

I actually broke it all bigtime later as I got carried away (and tried to use Gentoo stuff for init, and emerge pam, pam-login, baselayout...). I'm going to do a Gentoo Stage3 install on it, with lots of moving around of the USB flashdisk due to lack of immediately working network. I don't want to download everything again, or get another Gentoo ISO, and I have about 2 GB in /usr/portage/distfiles/ I can transfer files from. (Shared distfiles are great :))

so i /m on fc2... and i'm currently doing a yum update too fc3 test 1..

so i thought i'd try out this portage on fedora
(i am an active gentoo user btw)

a lot of problems...lot of FC scripts use perl and python. upgrading (or downgrading) these will always call for re-emerge of dependent modules and porting of those FC scripts. these should be left alone(injected and yummed)

module-init-tools, devfsd, cronbase, pam, linux-headers, shadow, hdparm, pwdb, pam-login, dhcpd: all can create pain of multiple config files and reconfigurations...two basic benefits of compiling from source don't apply to these mostly: faster code and bleeding edge software. so inject and yum them, and live happily. unless, of course, you are hell bent on converting your FC system into a gentoo clone....:))

Hey, thanks for that script.

Gentoo will always be my 1st love but i decided to use Arch for the meantime, pretty cool to have portage still :)

Ill probably come crawling back like I always do...:p

Hi, has anyone got any tips for getting portage working on Windows - via Windows Services for Unix? I tried unpacking the rescue tarball to do it, but tar and untar in SFU doesn't respond to any of the usual switches - so I can't even unpack it. Why do it? Well there is portage on Mac OS X, so why not Windows? SFU will be included as an integral part of Longhorn anyway - so unix will be a real part of MS' next OS. Also SFU feels a lot more 'intergrated' right now than Cygwin does. And also because it would just be plumb 'cool' to do it. There is even an Xwindow manager for SFU with full accelerated opengl support. So it would be a very neat thing to do.

HI Guys!!

I found this discussion!! I used Gentoo for a while. But i change to Arch Linux, because i can install binaries there. i don like the long time to compile something. But i loved at gentoo, that nearly every programm/app i wanted to install, was in portage. So i tried to port portage/emerge to my Distro!!
I found an interesting Project that did exactly what i was looking for:
Have a look at "emerde". Itś very easy to install and it works great for me!!

Thanks for that, yes it is indeed very cool. the only thing is I fuzzed it up slightly. When the install process finishes it recommends that you install various packages in order for it to function properly. Unfortunately I accidentally dismissed this window - and I don't know what these packages were. I can't find it anywhere in the docs, and I tried emailing the list and the author, but they didn't respond. The question is, what are these packages?

I'd prefer to avoid as many problems as possible.

Any input would be appreciated.

OK, I don't know if that answers what I asked. But I will try. I guess this means I will get the info I want but reinstalling will be much quicker this time?

The one disavantage with this is that you don't seem to be able to update portage at all. I mean I often get a message that 'an update to portage is avaiable, it is recomended that you update.' But when I try to emerge the new version of portage it just says I can't and that I should inject the package to skip that dependency.

It also toasted my module-init tools install for my 2.6x kernel, when a version it decided it would download refused to compile. The result was that my Slackware got very sick and couldn't load any of my modules correctly.

Manually installing it didn't help either unfortunately.

But oh well, I guess even portage isn't quite perfect.

OK, I just ran the script posted in the beggining. It told me, after erroring, that it needed the portage user & group, even gave me a line for each to copy in /etc/passwd & /etc/group. The only problem I had (spent all of about 1.5 minutes on it) was when I changed my $PORTDIR in make.conf, I forgot to update the symlink @ /etc/make.profile.

My thanx to the maker of ths script, and my bad if the 'make.profile' thing's already been gone over.

Just wanted add a tip for installing Portage on Mandrake 9.2.

After getting Portage up & going, I found I couldn't get KDE working (X looked like it started, but then it just quit). I had to change my /etc/env.d/10ldpath to:
Code:
LDPATH="/usr/X11R6/lib:/usr/lib/qt3/lib:/usr/lib/wine:/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib:/usr/kerberos/lib"
Everything's worked fine so far, but I haven't done anything too crazy yet - I've only upgraded nano. :)

HTH someone.

I installed this using the script on a Redhat 9 box and it seemed to work flawlesly. However after restarting I can no longer log into the system. I can't ssh into the box either. Fortunately, I had webmin installed so I can at least look through the logs and run basic commands. Anyone have an idea what could hae gone wrong? I'm thinking bin/bash is hosed.

Thanks!

Edit to add more info:

Trying to ssh into the box, I get connection reset by peer.
Trying to log into the console there is no error message, but it doesnt accept any input from the login promt.

trying to do this on a debian . . hard work though . . i have got it running but every single package i try fails not one have completed compiling . heres the error code i apt-get install gcc gawk
but perhaps i need some more ??

debian:/# emerge patch
Calculating dependencies ...done!
Code:

>>> emerge (1 of 1) sys-devel/patch-2.5.9 to /
>>> md5 src_uri ;-) patch-2.5.9.tar.gz
>>> Unpacking source...
>>> Unpacking patch-2.5.9.tar.gz to /var/tmp/portage/patch-2.5.9/work
tar: Read 8704 bytes from /usr/portage/distfiles/patch-2.5.9.tar.gz
>>> Source unpacked.

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

!!! ERROR: sys-devel/patch-2.5.9 failed.
!!! Function src_compile, Line 38, Exitcode 2
!!! emake failed

debian:/#



This eror comes with almost all of the packages . . (some like portage comes with no error message)
EDIT: i did the apt-get install make and guess what i found a package named "make" :) lame that it is no there as standard . .but anyway it seems to be gcc there is the main problm here . . how ever i been looking over some docs how ever nothing i could find . .

Hi everyone,

I've been trying this out on a RH9 machine. The machine is administered by my school, and has a lot of useful software installed, which is why I don't want to ditch it for Gentoo altogether. This is why installing portage atop it is very useful, particularly for keeping certain software up-to-date. (I never want to have to use GARNOME again).

Anyways, I get the rescue tarball installed, and am able to inject some packages, and emerge some others so that I can finally emerge a new version of portage, which goes fine.

Throughout the process I get lots of errors having to do with

Code:
einfo: command not found


But I'm guessing that's from the rescue version of portage not having it.

Anyways, after I get the new portage installed, it fails to work. Whenever I run emerge, it hangs before it does anything. Pressing CTRL-C gives me the Python stack trace:

Code:

mymachine root # emerge -p some_package
Traceback (most recent call last):

It's obviously failing to get the lock on some DB file, I think. Any ideas???

/sbin/depscan.sh belongs to sys-apps/baselayout

I did something like
Code:

mkdir -p /tmp/1
ROOT=/tmp/1 emerge --nodeps baselayout

then find the files in /tmp/1 that don't conflict with the existing "baselayout" and copy them over. Then do something like
Code:
emerge --inject sys-apps/baselayout-0.0

[/code]
