it continues to build the packages untill this point:

!!! Error: circular dependencies

and then it dies.. i have tried this about 5 times today
and it is not working.. last night it was working perfectly..
i am creating the filesystem using ReiserFS, mounting the
drive with -o notail, and following the documentation step
by step.. as i mentioned, last night following the same
documentation step by step, i installed it perfectly a
number of times yesterday..

this happens regardless if i change the default mirror from
ibiblio to another mirror..

any ideas?
Comment 1 Daniel Robbins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-01-08 13:21:21 UTC
fixed.  An invalid package.mask entry (gbevin?) caused the circular dep.  do
another "emerge rsync" and this should start working again.
