When installing / compiling the XFree86 packages, an error occurs stating that
the end of file has been found before the logical end of file. The error arises
whenever I attempt to emerge the kde-base or gnome-base. Obviously, this
situation is critical as it limits Gentoo Linux to a console only distribution
for me at this point in time.
Free space problem ?
There is plenty of HD space available per the 'df' command. The failure seems
to occur when the package labelled 'xc' is being compiled - or at least that is
the last package name I see before the errors commence.
Here is the error message I receive trying to emerge x11-base/xfree (for
make: *** [gamma_gl.o] Error 1
make: Leaving directory
!!! emerge aborting on /usr/portage/x11-base/xfree/xfree-4.1.0-r6.ebuild .
Plus a slew of other error messages. Hopefully, the above error will provide
some insight. BTW, I am installing Gentoo GNU/Linux on a Compaq Presario 3555
(64 MB RAM, 10 GD HD - 5 GB allocated to partition /, 128 MB Swap partition, 20
MB Boot partition, with the balance allocated to partition /home).
can you paste what actually went wrong. That means a couple of rows above what
you just pasted.
Unfortunately, the screen output scrolled off screen and the make : ***
[gamma.o] Error 1 line was the top line visible. The USE variable in
/etc/make.conf is the default string as installed by Gentoo GNU/Linux.
sorry, I can't help you if I don't know what's wrong. All I can say is that it
merges fine for everyone else, so, I'm pretty left with nothing to go on here.
haven't gotten any other reports and initial filer seems to have solved it since
he doesn't reply.
