*Edit i just downloaded the minimal cd about a day ago so its the updated version if that makes a diff :P Thanks!
Hey guys, everything was working well until i got to where i typed
Code:
# USE="-doc symlink" emerge gentoo-sources
.
after i type this
Code:
# ls -l /usr/src/linux
i wouldnt see this
Code:
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           22  Mar 18 16:23 /usr/src/linux -> linux-2.6.15
, but i would see something more like this
Code:
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           22  Mar 18 16:23 linux-2.6.15 -> linux-2.6.15
. After trying to start the genkernel or menuconfig cmds i kept getting a no kernel config kind of error. Anyone understanding a word im saying? Lets just say this is a learning experience that i will never forget :P

Try rm'ing the link, and making one yourself:
Quote:
cd /usr/src
ln -s linux-2.6.15 linux

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Gentoo on PPC.

Possibly the solution to your kernel config problem can be found here:
