emerge app-editors/vim gives
ACCESS VIOLATION SUMMARY
LOG FILE = "/tmp/sandbox-vim-6.1-xxx.log"
Emerge aborting on /usr/portage/app-editors/vim/vim-6.1.ebuild
emerge the latest portage (1.8.10) and try this again.
I have been unable to duplicate it at all on my system, and the oneother person
who reported the problem can not duplicate it either.
VIM works just fine via a SSH install, so if you aren't at the actual computer
using one of the tty's it works just fine..
i'm getting the same ACCESS VIOLATION message on a fresh Gentoo install + emerge
KDE. updated to portage 1.8.11 and emerged VIM again but got the same error.
Install of Gentoo 1.0 (stage 3 type install) yesterday and emerged gnome (and
all that implies). Was ready to get back to using X when I emerged vim and hit
this bug (just as initial bug reporter listed it, AFAICT). Version of portage is
Used ebuild as follows:
emerge vim [dies as per this bug]
ebuild vim-6.1.ebuild install [installs, this step had been done by emerge
before it died]
ebuild vim-6.1.ebuild package [to save all the work into a package]
emerge --usepkg vim [install using binary package we just built]
That worked. Since the order of steps I just outlined should at least be *close*
to what emerge vim would do by itself, it seems like a real bug to me. But I
have no idea why.
I ran into this problem a few days ago and thought that the ebuild was telling
me that I had the wrong permissions on /dev/vc/1, so I changed the permissions
and retried the ebuild.
It installed without a problem.
ok wait -- what did you change the permissions to?
I had created a -r1 ebuild which predicted a write in the sandbox. It felt
wrong, and now I am closer to knowing why. Can all of you who had this problem
upgrade your following files please:
And if anyone is not using xdm or gdm (or kdm) as a login manager (ie if you are
startx'ing) please inform me immediately, we need to talk!
Read this bug report, I need info!
I tried connecting to this site for about 6 hours last night (I live in
Taiwan, GMT+8) but I was unable to get through to anything @ gentoo.org.
Anyways, I added read and write permissions for group and others:
chmod 666 /dev/vc/1
but this reverted back to 600 after I logged out and back in again. Although,
VIM is still working fine.
As for login managers, I don't use an X-based login manager; I only use startx
when I need X.
Thanks for the info. Actually, you were quite quick to respond. gentoo.org was
in fact down for about 6 hours last night, so you're ok :)

I beleive I have found the (real) solution!
Simply add root (or whoever you have emerging things) to the 'tty' group.
Just change line 6 (on my mostly new system) of /etc/group to:
