i'm at the step right before the manual kernel configuration on a G4

i just configured my USE variables and ran the command emerge ppc-sources and now all i have is a flashing underscore _ on the next line down - no errors or any indication of work being done. the computer itself doesn't sound like it's doing anything.

[added]

ctrl-c gives me a glimpse into what might be the problem, but no solution
Code:
livecd / # emerge -D ppc-sources
Calculating dependencies
!!! Problem in sys-kernel/ppc-sources dependencies
!!! 102


[added #2]

Looks like I'm screwed. Emerge doesn't work because the system doesn't recognize my onboard ethernet, and i can't compile the module for the ethernet because 1) i can't find it and 2) it's part of the menuconfig process which is AFTER emerge

:evil:

try to load the module sungem (It's the right module in _my_ case, so you can try it).

If this doesn't work try to get your ethernet card's name by using 'lspci' and post it, if you can't find the right module.

You might have to leave the chroot environment or use another console (Alt+F2 or something).
