Hi,

On my new gentoo-2.6.11-r3 installation I tried to emerge X (emerge xorg-x11), but I ran into following problem:

make[5]: *** [geometry.dir] Illegal instruction
make[5]: *** [all] error 2
.
.
.
!!! ERROR: x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r2 failed
!!! Function build, Line 974, Exitcode 2


Anybody know what I did wrong, or what is missing?
Also - I try to mount a USB stick, so I don't have to type the output of emerge --info (which I will no doubt be asked for) - mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb doesn't seem to work - any idea?

A weird error... the 'emerge info' might be useful at this point :).

What does mount say when you try to mount the USB disk?

Mounting the USB stick yielded something along the lines of 'unrecognizable file system'.

Anyhow, I thought I better check my kernel configuration, to make sure I have proper USB support build in - but make menuconfig didn't even work anymore. Some time along the line I tried emerge --update world and emerge kde (both failed). I guess I created a big mess - so I start from scratch, and see where I get.

I'll update this thread if I run into this problem again
