Hey there. I have tried to compile the base system twice, every time I get the same error.

>>> emerge (38 of 91) dev-python/python-fchksum-1.7.1 to /
>>> md5 files ; - ) python-fchksum-1.7.1.ebuild
>>> md5 files ; - ) python-fchksum-1.6.1-r1.ebuild
>>> md5 files ; - ) files/digest-python-fchksum-1.7.1
>>> md5 files ; - ) files/digest-python-fchksum-1.6.1-r1
>>> md5 src_uri ; - ) python-fchksum-1.7.1.tar.gz
>>> unpacking source
>>> unpacking python-fchksum-1.7.1.tar.gz to /var/tmp/portage/python-fchksum-1.7.1/work
>>> source unpacked
[‘setup.py’, ‘build’]
running build
running build-ext

creating build
creating build/temp.linux-i686-2.3
i386-pc-linux-gnu-gcc –pthread –fno-strict-aliasing –DNDEBUG –march=pentium2 –03 –pipe –fomit-frame-pointer –fPIC –I/usr/include/python2.3 –c md5.c –o build/temp.linux-i686-2.3 /md5.o

unable to execute i386-pc-linux-gnu-gcc: no such file or directory
error: command ‘i386-pc-linux-gnu-gcc’ failed with exit status 1
!!! ERROR: dev-python/python-fchksum-1.7.1 failed



Not sure if this is relevant but previously, when bootstrapping the system, I had trouble downloading the source code. It kept saying the connection closed or something. I changed the timeout value to 300 and the retries value to 0. Then it worked fine.

Any help resolving this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Suma

Sounds like you may have some make.conf issues. Double check to make sure that your cflags are not to ambitious. Also make sure that your chosts are what they should be. To my knowledge those are about the only things that can go wrong at that early stage.

Also, are you using the stable branch or ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="foo".

Here is my make.conf file. I cant see anything wrong with it, but I am new to linux, so that probably dosn't count for very much. I left out ACCEPT_KEYWORDS, so it defaults to X86.

USE="-X -gnome -gtk -kde -qt"
CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
MAKEOPTS="-j2"
CFLAGS="-march=pentium2 -O3 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
PORTAGE_TMPDIR=/var/tmp
PORTDIR=/usr/portage
DISTDIR=${PORTDIR}/distfiles
PKGDIR=${PORTDIR}/packages
PORT_LOGDIR=/var/log/portage
AUTOCLEAN="yes"
PORTAGE_TMPFS="/dev/shm"
RSYNC_RETRIES="0"
RSYNC_TIMEOUT=300


I noticed that "fchksum" seems to be referenced a lot in the previous output. Could this mean that I have downloaded a corrupted file, and the hash's are not comparing. Possibly the corrupted download was not retried because of my setting the flag to zero.

Then again, this theory seems to be killed by the fact that the actual error message is "unable to execute i386-pc-linux-gnu-gcc: no such file or directory".



Cheers,
Suma

Well i think it just not founding your compiler.Go to
Code:
cd /usr/lib/gcc-lib/
directory and there create a symlink here from

i686-pc-linux-gnu
(or what it has) to

yup thanks that fixed the problem... however i now have a whole range of new errors. it's a lot to type out so i'll just post the relevant parts:

touch: setting times of 'etc-temp': No such file or directory
make[4]: ***[elc-stamp] Error 1
...
make[3]: ***[po-mode.elc] Error 2
...
make[2]: ***[all] Error 2
...
make: ***[all-recursive] Error 1
!!! ERROR: sys-devel/gettext-0.14.4 failed.
!!! Function src_compile, line 65, Exitcode 2

at this stage, i feel like fdisking my hard drive and starting again -- and hope these problems don't come back.
especially since the last time i installed gentoo (on a pentium 3), it worked fine without any of these problems.

what would you guys advise?

cheers,
suma
