I have one little problem with my /etc/make.conf file. I was triyng to update Glibc, but...


>>> Emerging (1 of 4) sys-libs/glibc-2.4-r3 to /
>>> checking ebuild checksums ;-)
(1 z 4) Sprzątanie sys-libs/glibc-2.4-r3

 * glibc-2.4 is nptl-only!
 * NPTL requires a CHOST of i486 or better
!!! ERROR: sys-libs/glibc-2.4-r3 failed.
Call stack:, line 1555:   Called dyn_setup, line 668:   Called pkg_setup
  glibc-2.4-r3.ebuild, line 1079:   Called die
!!! please add USE='nptl nptlonly' to make.conf
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, and the call stack if relevant.

So, I added 'nptl nptlonly' to USE in /etc/make.conf... And now this file jest like that:


# These settings were set by the catalyst build script that automatically built this stage
# Please consult /etc/make.conf.example for a more detailed example
CFLAGS="-march=athlon -O2 -s -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -DNDEBUG -DG_DISABLE_ASSERT"
CXXFLAGS="-march=athlon -O2 -s -pipe -DNDEBUG -DG_DISABLE_ASSERT"
LDFLAGS="-s -z combreloc"
USE="-xprint -eds -esd -xmms -mozilla -gnome -apm -ipv6 -samba -arts -oss nptl fbcon gpm vidix sqlite berkdb ffmpeg a52 xvid aac dv aalib dga dvd dts dvdread v4l flac svga ncurses xv nvidia cdr alsa slang readline mmx sse gdbm tcltk 3dnow tcpd pam ssl nls perl python gif mad xml xml2 imlib sdl vorbis gtk gtk2 X qt motif opengl png tiff usb cairo nvidia kde hal cups crypt idn dri nptl nptlonly"
INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse"

I asked my friend and he told me that I should change CHOST="i386-pc-linux-gnu" to CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu", and everything'll be ok. But he said also that he's not sure if everything will be ok with my Gentoo...

So my question is: is it safe to change CHOST? Do I have to change sth else?

Thx for answer.

Right, you need to change your CHOST - Weird CHOST settings causing compile mixup - Changing CHOST should answer all your questions, if not please post them there.
