Hello, I'm new to Gentoo and and am working on installing gnome with "emerge gnome", but I'm getting the error shown below. I'm pretty sure its probably something easy, but I can't decipher this error message. No idea what dyn_compile or x-modular_src_make a is. I'm going to post my make.conf also because thats really the only place other than the kernel that I've had to make my own decisions and not have a "standard config" to copy and use. Also please don't assume I've done anything that isn't in the handbook, because I probably haven't. Thanks.

Code:

# 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="-O2 -march=i686 -pipe"
CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
MAKEOPTS="-j2"

Hi,

Well, you should at least read all of the first part of the handbook. Also use the http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/index.xml?catid=desktop page for instructions. You have to set up flags in make.conf for your card, please read the xorg docs on the above link.

If you still get stuck come back and I'll give you a hand. Then post /var/tmp/portage/x11-base/xorg-server-1.1.1-r4/temp/build.log (preferebly in http://rafb.net/paste/). Welcome to Gentoo!

Cheers

Ok I reviewed that and appended

Code:

VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia"
INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse"


to my make.conf.
The next step after that was basically emerge xorg-x11. Which generated the same error.
I also tried using "nv" as I understand that is the non-proprietary driver, but it gave the same result.

Are the nv and nvidia drivers included in the xorg-x11 package? Or do I need to get the nvidia drivers from the nvidia website and install
a driver before I try to configure X? Could this error be caused by something I left out of the kernel?

Another thought.

I completely overlooked this line

Code:
i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc: : No such file or directory


Is this error just stating that I don't have the gcc compiler installed?
If so, I thought that GCC was a cornerstone to compiling anything and everything.

On that same link you will find the instructions for installing drivers for your card.

Loooll. Sorry I posted before refreshing the page so I missed your post. You have gcc installed, otherwise you wouldn't have compiled almost anything so far. It probably means gcc couldn't find a given file or directory, please post the complete log like I asked before. Cheers

ok the code is pasted here http://rafb.net/p/HJL7Ww10.html

Is the driver installation required to compile xorg?
I was going go worry about installing a driver afterwards if I deemed it necessary. This is not going to be a high performance machine by anymeans.

I intend to hook this comp up to my tv and play content over the network on the livingroom TV and Speakers. And I also wanted to get familiar with Gentoo...

After looking at the configuring NVIDIA driver page I thought of something. As I am still fairly new to linux this may sound pretty simple, and It feels like a dumb question, but here I go.

I'm thinking that if I have no nvidia graphics stuff loaded into my kernel or as modules. Does that mean that I need to get the proprietary drivers? Or could I recompile the kernel with the kernel stuff and just go with that since I don't need any high performance stuff? I'm not even sure if this is a driver issue or not. I do however, have nothing compiled into kernel or a module under Device Drivers --> Graphics support < > Support for frame buffer devices. This option is completely blank as I think I either didn't feel I needed frame buffer, or I just left it out as habit, because I do update my drivers with my ubuntu system that is significantly higher performance.

You should be able to use the free drivers, and should prefer that when possible. The nVidia proprietary drivers are fairly large, and are complex enough that many people will not provide support for a problem which is only observed when using the proprietary drivers.

Portage should handle getting the drivers installed for you. Your current problem looks more fundamental, and it's probably pure chance that you were emerging the X server when the problem struck.

About the open/restricted decision: do you need the tvout? check if the open driver supports it well. The restricted drivers probably have less issues as they are more used and are made by people who know the hardware better then anyone I believe.

About the kernel config: just decide which driver you want and then read a guide to install them which will tell you what it needs in the kernel. 99% chance you will have to recompile it for both options.

About the error: I don't know what to say. Try emerging a different (stable) version and please post results. I don't remember if the driver was required to be installed before the xorg, the guide should tell you (I think once you put it in the video_card flags it will emerge the restricted drivers together with xorg).

Cheers

That gcc error is basically saying you're trying to compile a filename that's just a space or colon. Try updating your gcc version.
