Hi, this is a resume post from...
I follow all step of
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-x86-quickinstall.xml but when i
finally go to install gnome... in the latests package (mailclient or
something similar) fail...
Alex Schuster answer:
Use emerge --resume --skipfirst to continue where you were, skipping
Or simply emerge --keep-going <package>, this will continue
automatically even if a package fails.
To compile the package that faileed, there is often a bug report on
bugs.gentoo.org already. Just google for the error message, and if
you're lucky, you will find the solution. If not, just open a new bug
David Abbott suggest:
check out "man emerge" and some useful
parameters like --skip-first, --resume and --keep-going.
Have you rebooted the system yet? Don't bother about installing Gnome
until you've done so. Be absolutely minimal in your steps, if they're
not directly related to having a working system. A DE is eyecandy -
just get the disks prepared, the files copied, the kernel installed
and the bootloader going. When the system boots for the first time to
a plain console you can then log in as root and add ~jose, cron,
syslog, GUI (although you'll probably want to install GNU screen a
little bit earlier).
Finally i re-try emerge gnome and package that i thought that fails
was... mail-client/evolution-184.108.40.206 saying... libmail-evolution.so
is not portable. Maybe this is only a warning...
i'll use emerge --keep-going gnome and be patient to compilation
finish... and libmail-evolution.so is not portable apear varios times
from diferent .la and finally go to next package... and compilation
This night i'll finish this steps...
Thanks all for anwers.
This is your badness level.
It's unusually high for someone your size.
We have to fix that.
