hi, can you say if you have a binutils-config installed and are switched to the right binutils?

information about binutils-config can be found here:

Utility to change the binutils version being used

Probably there was just a mistake in the upgrade progress and you could intervene and try to fix it manually now,

Please report back to this bug report.

Thanks in advance,

there was a bug in toolchain-binutils.eclass but azarah fixed it ... i'm not sure if existing users will have that bug fix propogated to their installed ebuilds or not though :/

This shows the emerge removing the soft links.

I believe this happens when there is more than one binutils installed.

This shows the emerge removing the soft links.

The sym links to ld, as, etc are removed but never replaced.
Comment 8 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-04-09 11:29:53 UTC
that's normal ... binutils-config will generate all the things you need in $PATH and such
