Hi i am new to Linux, and recently installed gentoo on my machine. I am struggling to emerge x11-xorg. Everytime i do it, after about an hour I get the following:

/xkbcomp/geometry'
rm -f geometry.dir
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=../../../exports/lib XLOCALEDIR=../../../exports/lib/locale ../
../..exports/bin/xkbcomp -lfhlpR -o geometry.dir '*'
make[5]: *** [geometry.dir] illegal instruction
make[5]: *** Deleting file 'geometry.dir'

!!! Function build, Line 956, Exitcode 2
!!! make World failed
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.


Is there anyway of resolving this problem. Appreciate any help, thanks.

( post #5)

Now I realise i might have made a mistake with my processor, its just a normal athlon, not athlon XP, so i modified to the following:

CFLAGS="-02 -march=athlon -fomit-frame-pointer"
CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
MAKEOPTS="-j2"
USE="-gtk -gnome qt kde dvd als cdr java oss"

So know when I emerge xorg-x11:

After about the same sort of time i know get this error:

../../exports/lib/libXfont.so: undefined reference to `FT_Get_PS_Font_Info'
../../exports/lib/libXfont.so: undefined reference to `FT_Stream_Seek'
../../exports/lib/libXfont.so: undefined reference to `FT_Has_PS_Glyph_Names'

please note that you wrote a zero instead of "O" letter... you should put -O2 instead of -02...
