Description Felix Finch 2006-06-12 19:07:03 UTC
I have a laptop which used to run gentoo, but I confused it with conflicting versions of software and decided the best bet was to reinstall from scratch.  I am trying a stage1 install; that part went ok, but stage two fails with this complaint:

running build
running build_ext
building 'magic' extension
creating build
creating build/temp.linux-i686-2.4
i386-pc-linux-gnu-gcc -pthread -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -march=i686 -O2 -pipe -fPIC -I./ -I../ -I../src -I/usr/include/ -I/usr/include/python2.4 -c py_magic.c -o build/temp.linux-i686-2.4/py_magic.o
unable to execute i386-pc-linux-gnu-gcc: No such file or directory
error: command 'i386-pc-linux-gnu-gcc' failed with exit status 1

!!! ERROR: sys-apps/file-4.17-r1 failed.
Call stack:, line 1539:   Called dyn_compile, line 939:   Called src_compile
  file-4.17-r1.ebuild, line 43:   Called distutils_src_compile
  distutils.eclass, line 38:   Called die

Everything prior to that for this sys-apps/file emerge was referencing i686* as the compiler.

Here is emerge --info:

I can chroot to the mounted drives and emerge --resume repeats this, time after time.  I tried adding a symlink from /usr/bin/i686... to i386..., that failed exactly the same, and removing the symlink continues to fail exactly the same.

env-update && source /etc/profile && 'emerge -e system'
Comment 2 Felix Finch 2006-06-13 07:27:30 UTC
This is pathetic.  I claim a stage 1 install fails and you run emerge -e system.  Somehow I don't see the similarity.  I have been continuing this stage 1 install using emerge --resume --skipfirst; my hope is taht I can struggle thru to the end and have a system which, altho crippled, can at least recompile the missing parts.

For instance, dev-perl/Locale-gettext fails because perl is not installed yet.

I wonder what else is not installed that makes sys-apps/file fail?  You eveidently don't see the relationship.  No shit.  If I have a fully installed system, I can probably emerge a part which has already emerged.

The real trick comes in trying to install from scratch.

Gentoo is run by a bunch of noobies who can't see past the end of their own noses.
Comment 3 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-06-13 07:31:15 UTC
Eh, look - either use stage3 like everyone else or do the damned bootstrap and stage 1/2 properly. It's unsupported, period.
