I edited my make.conf file to say ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" instead of ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="x86" I looked back at the tutorial and I am not sure which way it should be. If I change to just x86 and then try to "emerge world" it wants to downgrade almost everything on my system. Should I have ~x86 or just x86 in my make.conf?

You should leave the ACCEPT_KEYWORDS variable unchanged. Don't be afraid of using so-called unstable packages. They are merely less well-tested, and in case of trouble, well, you can always refer to the gentoo wiki or here.


Thanks kimchi_sg!!!

@ali3nx: Your new make.conf as downloaded from eliteitminds.com has very aggressive CFLAGS as default. I changed the -march and -mtune options to pentium4, and b0rked the binutils install. Emerge complained that the "C compiler cannot create executables". :-(

I'm using the stage3 "safe" install, on a pentium4 1.7ghz. Removing -mtune, -fweb, and -fomit-frame-pointer and downgrading -O3 to -O2 (i.e, CFLAGS="-march=pentium4 -O2 -pipe) got me past binutils.

I'm sad to report that over the christmas holidays the owner of Exovian in his infiite wisdom deleted the entire directory my ali3nx.info domain was hosted in on thier server. The entire domain's files were lost without regard to the use of space of the largest file in the site. The iso the i was hosting for lxnay. Thanks goes out to Ben of Exovian for deleting the entire domain in one command. Way to go buddie... I'm sure people love you

I just finished with the guide, and tought I didn't found even 1 problem in the middle, when I was going to boot I found 2 weird problems, one of them solved by itself but I don't know how XD and the second was that ntp wouldn't work :S the /etc/conf.d/ntp-client file was wrong, instead of settings it was a script but it might have been a faulty ebuild :s

No its intentional, I think. The /etc/conf.d/ntp-client file does not exist by default.

My preferred alternative is to use ntpdate once to set the clock:
Code:
ntpdate -b -u pool.ntp.org

Then I add ntpd, not ntp-client, to the default runlevel:
Code:
rc-update add ntpd default

Lastly, edit the /etc/ntpd.conf file if you wish to change the time server from the default of pool.ntp.org.

Or you could just add both.

/etc/init.d/ntp-client sets the clock using ntpdate and /etc/init.d/ntpd runs as the daemon, keeping your clock at the right time. Using both together is better, imo.

But the /etc/conf.d/ntp-client file does not even exist after the install, and i couldn't find any instruction anywhere on how to fill it out. :-( That's why i use ntpd only.

Oh ok. Strange, the file used to be created whenever you merged ntp.

Here's my copy of the /etc/conf.d/ntp-client
Code:

# Copyright 1999-2004 Gentoo Foundation
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header: /var/cvsroot/gentoo-x86/net-misc/ntp/files/ntp-client.confd,v 1.9 2004/10/28 12:25:34 vapier Exp $

# Command to run to set the clock initially
# Most people should just leave this line alone ...
# however, if you know what you're doing, and you
# want to use ntpd to set the clock, change this to 'ntpd'
NTPCLIENT_CMD="ntpdate"

# Options to pass to the above command
# Most people should just uncomment this variable and
# change 'someserver' to a valid hostname which you
# can aquire from the URL's below
NTPCLIENT_OPTS=" -b -u bigben.cac.washington.edu tick.ucla.edu montpelier.caltech.edu"

# How long to wait (in seconds) before giving up.
# Useful for when you boot and DNS/internet isn't
# really available but you have your net interface
# come up with say a static IP.
NTPCLIENT_TIMEOUT=30

##
# A list of available servers can be found here:
# http://www.pool.ntp.org/
# A good way to get servers for your machine is:
# netselect -s 3 pool.ntp.org
##


You'll have to edit the servers in the NTPCLIENT_OPTS line to ones closer to your location.

I remember seeing some error about the /etc/conf.d/ntp-client file creation during the merging and the file wan't created afterwards... And I also remember that when I emerged ntp sometime ago this error didn't occur.. Faulty ebuild perhaps?

Does anybody happen to have a backup of that make.conf file, I was hoping to at least use that configuration file as a template for a new gentoo installation that I plan on doing.

Thanks,

It is downloadable from ali3nx's alternate site, http://www.eliteitminds.com/make.conf

EDIT: sorry for the typo in the URL.

I dared to try to make a reiserfs4 install, using mm-sources (couldn't find a kernel patch for reiserfs4 on namesys or I just didn't looked well enough), had a couple of after install problems here and there, but just to warn you, mm-sources won't detect a ps2 mouse if ACPI support is enabled.

Maybe it's better not to do that reiserfs4 tutorial until that problem is fixed.

EDIT: Seems like I will have to take mm-sources out XD current release doesn't works with nvidia-kernel. I will try harder now to find a patch for reiserfs4.

Can bootstrap break because of perl issues? I did the updated one-liner and woke up to a perl dependency issue, tho I had emerge lib-perl twice.. as copyed and pasted from the one liner..

Is there a way to tell if your system was/has been bootstrapped? because i did the emerge perl thing again, then emerge system.. but if its a broken bootstrap.. its all in vein..

Just do an "emerge system -e" instead of dorking around with bootstrap.

Okay... after becoming inspired by Oktane's latest post i deceided to try --dry-run patching reiser4's 2.6.10 patch against gentoo-dev-sources. Results? hehe.... not one failed hunk. I've opened a bug requesting inclusion of reiser4 in gentoo-dev-sources which you all can monitor to your hearts content here

Just a brief update on the tuitorial files. I'll host them on my own webserver for the meantime. If anyone has a copy of the make.conf from my old file stash on ali3nx.info email me a copy. I've allready hosted one but the use flags have varied to some degree and i would like to maintain some margin of consistancy with the use flags. My email address is available in my profile. Happy new year to all and thanks
