hey all,

I've just started trying to use drobbin's metro utility (its designed to replace catalyst). see http://github.com/funtoo/metro/wikis/quickstartguide

anyway, I'm getting an error, which looks like it may be trivial, but I don't know enough about what I'm doing yet to be sure.

Code:

# nice /usr/lib/metro/scripts/build.sh ~x86
Starting...
metro: running target "gentoo/snapshot".
File /home/mirror/linux/snapshots/funtoo-2008.11.05.tar.bz2 already exists - skipping...
metro: complete.
metro: running target "gentoo/stage1".

Metro Parser: Cannot open file /home/mirror/linux/~x86/.control/subarch specified in variable "$[path/mirror/control]/subarch"

metro:
stage1 fail: metro target/version: 2008.11.05 target: gentoo/stage1 target/subarch: ~x86


I'm not sure how this subarch file is supposed to be created, and what should go in it.

I ran it this morning and created a Custom ~amd64 stage3 build.
Looking at your error i would guess that you missed the last preparatory
step in the Stage Build section 'echo "~x86" > .control/subarch'.
If you followed the previous commands then that command creates
the file in '/home/mirror/linux/~x86/.control' and inserts your arch
'~x86' into it.
