Description Bruce A. Locke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-05-27 18:23:05 UTC
>>> Completed installing into /var/tmp/portage/ghostscript-7.05/image/

>>> /etc/ file fopen: No such file or directory
!!! emerge aborting on  /usr/portage/app-text/ghostscript/ghostscript-7.05.ebuild .

root@kodiak blocke # ls -l /etc/
ls: /etc/ No such file or directory

<blocke> >>> /etc/ file fopen: No such file or directory
<blocke> !!! emerge aborting on 
/usr/portage/app-text/ghostscript/ghostscript-7.05.ebuild .
<Ashmodai> blocke: that's annoying, it happens from time to time to me too
<Azarah> yeah
<Azarah> just rememge :/
<Ashmodai> well
<blocke> someone file a bug report for drobs yet?
<mjc> touch /etc/
<Azarah> sometimes happens if one is going, and you start a second, and the
second finish before the first
<Azarah> i guess the best way will be to check if another portage is running,
and if so, dont touch it
<Ashmodai> just ebuild /usr/portage/app-text/ghostscript/ghostscript-7.05.ebuild
<mjc> env-update
<mjc> er, env-update is cache
<Ashmodai> that way it wont compile that huge ghostscript again :)
<Azarah> just fix sandbox.c or whatever not to nuke
<blocke> Azarah: so in otherwords we shouldn't do a certain thing or create a
lockfile and make sure only one copy of emerge is running
<Azarah> should do the trick
