Hi,
I hope i'm in the right forum!
Well, I am a Gentoo Newbe, but I worked for years with destries like red hat and fedora.
Now I decided to install a gentoo stage 1 2005.0 on my amd64 system.
Works all fine, till the part of the x11 installation:
I made an emerge x11 in the console...
after a while I got the following error:

/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.3/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find -lfl
collect2: id returned 1 exit status

I just don't know what that error means and what went wrong...
so I hope some of you can help me out!

I've seen this error in another post. IIRC -lfl is the flex library, which apparently is missing. You might want to search the forums though for more specific answers.

Definately think this should get a sticky. I searched for hours trying to locate this =D

Turns out Flex is what I needed as well.
