Hello,
This problem has supposedly been fixed, but my machine has yet to understand this! It's a Acer Travelmate 8006lmi running the 2005 version of gentoo, with a genkernel kernel.

When I try to emerge either the 0.9.6 or experimental 0.9.8 version of Howl I get a storage size of edata isn't known error

I have tried every solution on this website. I'm trying to install Gnome, is there anyway around this problem either using a different program, leaving it out etc.

Lots of people seem to have this problem, any chance of a working version of howl, rather than trying to hack it?

PLEASE NOTE, when I say I've tried everything on this forum, I mean it!

emerge glibc - failed
emerge XML-Parser - failed
Using the 0.9.8 version from ~x86 - failed
Altering the eth0 header - failed.
And just about everything else, so much I can't remember fully. Please just don't send a link to a previous comment.

Why don't you post the actual error message, so we can see what is going on. I realize that it appears to be no useful reason for that, but maybe someone will recognize the exact place it is failing, etc. Sorry that I only pasted a link earlier. :-D I was short on time and figured it was better then nothing. Lets see if I can be more helpful this time. 8)

Please don't post the same thread twice. If you can't find your posts, use the "View your posts" link on the top right corner of the forums index.
