Mornin' guys, this one's occurred so early in the install I don't even see where I could have done anything wrong.

I've been following bob p's stage 1/3 as i have done many times before and followed it twice now word for word and generated the same error.

As soon as I do my first emerge -sync it gets to 88% of updating portage cache and then presents this output:

Code:

>>> Updating Portage cache:   88%!!! Cannot resolve a virtual package name to an ebuild.
!!! This is a bug, please report it. (virtual/libintl-0)


I've tried the guide's config files and my own, the gentoo rsync and my own mirror here, and it generates the same error. I don't know a lot about packages so I don't really know what it means, but I'm asking here first as I don't believe it'sa bug, it only happens when installing, a standard emerge --sync on my other box is fine.

I have ensured I am using the most recent stage 3 and portage snapshots available.

Any ideas my good problem solving peers?

Does 'emerge -u portage' prior to that first 'emerge --sync' help?

The only bugs which reference virtual/libintl-0 are listed as duplicates of this bug, which is now listed resolved fixed.

The reason it's being duped to that bug is because they are similar in nature and caused by the same thing.

Your make.profile file is a symbolic link that points to a profile directory in the portage tree. You've either got the link:
1) Not set at all or incorrectly set (pointing to a bad directory)
2) The profile link you have is old.

Here's how you fix it:

Code:
cd /etc/
rm make.profile
ln -s ../usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2005.1 make.profile


Then do:
Code:
emerge metadata


That last part will do the portage cache update.

And of course you'll have to change the "ln" command for whichever ARCH you're using.

Oh and if that doesn't fix it do:
Code:
emerge --oneshot portage

and repeate the previous command.

Cheers guys for generally being right, it shows that rushing is certainly not a great way to get something done fast, it appears that I was not quite correct when I said I downloaded the correct stage I copy pasted a 2005.0 url on a 2005.1 livecd of course creating the make.profile symlink problems. But hey learnt a fair bit about gentoo profiles in the process so not all bad.

Ta for your help once again gentoo forums.

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Duplicate Threads in favour of Can't get emerge to work.
