During the install process, right after I select my time zone and host name, I receive the following error:
getdeplisterror :fatal: get_deps: dep list is empty
And attributed this error to mean that my portage tree was not built. I checked the /var/log/install.xxx file and that was indeed the only error listed.
This happens in Standard mode without networking. It's happened the past five times I've tried, but randomly *doesn't* fail. In (literally) about 20 attempted installs I've succeeded twice.
Whenever this error occurs, it send me to a screen that gives me four options. Retrying the step never works. I always have to abort the install.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a Standard install without networking enabled. (With networking throws a different error later in the process.) Don't provide a custom config file when it asks in the beginning.
2. Just input standard selections to all the prompts.
3. Shortly after you set the time zone, the problem will occur.
I got the "getdeplisterror :fatal: get_deps: dep list is empty" error.
It should've continued installing.
Please attach your /var/log/install.log
Please reopen if you can provide more info
