I'm working on a friends box who hasn't used his Gentoo partition in about a year and a half. It immediately gives the error "'str' object has no attribute 'insert' 'rm -Rf /usr/portage/profiles; emerge sync' may fix this...." whenever you try to emerge anything.

I did set the /etc/make.profile to point to ../usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2005.0

Please see this topic. The non-cascading profiles are now in /usr/portage/profiles/obselete, so the profile you're looking for until you upgrade portage is /usr/portage/profiles/obselete/x86.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads.
