Hey Guys,

I'm getting an odd message ( snapshot not found )when I enter
emerge-webrsync

included in the message is the files it was trying to retrieve

portage-20130420.tar.xz.md5sum
portage-20130420.tar.bz2.md5sum
portage-20130420.tar.gz.md5sum

I don't know why I'm getting this message... Anyone?
: )

I'll assume you have network connectivity.

See if you can ping the rsync server you set up with mirrorselect. If you can't I'd suggest adding/changing some mirrors.

i suggest the exact opposite, delete your mirror selections from /etc/portage/make.conf

merge up mirrorselect at a later time, have it test mirrors and use fastest 3-5.

(see man mirrorselect after emerging mirrorselect)

I believe both of you missed that he is fetching snapshots from more than a month ago. OP: is your system clock correct?

Ahh so I did. I'm not a gentoo expert but I thought I'd try and get more involved which will help me learn too :)

Hey HU, Thanks for the reply...

I did set my internal clock prior to this.

What's strange is that, I actually was able to fetch snapshots when I previously configured my HD using FDISK. Now using PARTED I'm confronted
with this snapshots message.

Question if I reboot.. At what point of the install can I start? ( i.e. start from mount /mnt/gentoo )
My guess is mount /mnt/gentoo and resetting internal clock.

Your kernel clock should initialize from the hardware clock. If your hardware clock is correct, there will be no need to repeat that step. Yes, you can resume from the mounting stage.

thanks for that info...

Hey HU...

After rebooting and remounting I checked my internet connection just to make sure, I still get the
"snapshot was not found" message.

What could be leading to this... I am stuck....

Is there a way I could use "links" to get at the file from the site and DL it...? Is this even an option?

Thanks again

As I said previously, your system clock must be correct. The files you specified are correctly absent. You should download current snapshots, not ones from more than a month ago.

Totally understand. Yet, I'm getting an error message when I attempt to get at rsync.gentoo.org

1) I have no way in controlling what files get picked

I enter what the documentation says "mirrorselect -i -o >> /mnt/gentoo/etc/portage/make.conf" I get back---- No such file or directory

2) When I try to move ahead on the documentation just to test things out--- I type,
#emerge --sync
I get
!!!getaddrinfo failed for 'rsync.gentoo' : [Errno -2] Name or service not known
>>>Starting rsync with rsync://rsync.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage...
rsync: getaddrinfo: rsync.gentoo.org 873: Name or service not known
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(122) [Receiver=3.0.9]

I suspect something is wrong here...

Also I set my clock by using:
#date [month,day,time,year]

and confirmed by typing #date--I get back Fri May 31 20:30:20----My time at my location---US, NY

Is there another time setting or way to check my Kernel time?..

Thanks again for your time...

if you have any sync or rsync entries in make.conf delete them
from the chroot
Code:
nano /etc/resolv.conf
edit to
Quote:
nameserver 8.8.8.8
and
Code:
emerge --sync
again

I think it is most possible to have skipped this command, so you don't have internet connection in chroot:

Code:
# cp -L /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/

Here is the sulution i tried :
Its written in the gentoo installation guide in green bg text as
Quote:
Note: If you want to manually set a SYNC server in make.conf, you should check out the community mirrors list for the mirrors closest to you. We recommend choosing a rotation, such as rsync.us.gentoo.org, rather than choosing a single mirror. This helps spread out the load and provides a failsafe in case a specific mirror is offline.

When u run this command mirrorselect -i -r -o >> /mnt/gentoo/etc/portage.make.conf and it asks for selecting mirror by pressing SPACEBAR, select the one which says ANY AVAILABLE MIRROR like Any available mirror - rsync.us.gentoo.org (rsync)* . This way it will try all the available mirror. The problem you get might be because the single mirror u choose was offline which in most cases are.
Thankyou

Have you copied your dns info from /etc/resolv.conf? Solved it for me.

Several years later, but i just wanted to say that this made the difference for me. Been struggling for a few hours trying all these other suggestions. One small change to the resolve.conf and it's working :)
