Hi;

I'm a newbie and I need help. I'm doing a stage 1 install and I'm at the Building the System spot. When I run the emerge --emptytree system command it's all fine until it tries to install what appears to be c++. The exact error is

ERROR: sys-libs/ncurses-5.4-r6 failed
Function do_compile, Line 86, Exitcode 2...

Any help is very much appreciated!

Thanks

You probably need to switch gcc profiles using "gcc-config". Sometimes the bootstrap script does not do this, and you need to switch manually.

The original gcc provided by the stage1 tarball does not have c++ support, but the new gcc that you built during bootstrap does have c++ support.
