Hi,

I am new to Gentoo. I am attempting a stage 1 Gentoo install. I have got to

> Updating the Portage tree
> You should now update your Portage tree to the latest version. emerge --sync does this for you.

After doing this it was recommended that I update portage. I used the following command -

emerge portage

This process fails on -

Entering Directory `var/tmp/portage/ncurses-5.4-r5/work/ncurses-5.4-r5/c++`
blah blah ../c++/cursesf.cc
.. No such file or directory
blah blah ..c++/cursesm.cc
.. No such file or directory

make failed

Any help would be appreciated.

Let me introduce you to a powerful feature of these forums which you should have used before spending (wasting?) time posting: the SEARCH feature.

It has turned up this result: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-299349-highlight-ncurses+directory.html

Also, do not "summarise" error messages like what you have done, but give us the exact unedited text of the error.

You'll have to wait till you bootstrap to update portage. It isn't a big deal. The stage tarballs are all put together with a stable/safe portage version with this in mind.
