Description Kent Fredric (IRC: kent\n) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-09-16 02:16:46 UTC
This is a new bug to me:

tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

This is strange.

I downloaded the required file as instructed: 
ls -la /usr/portage/distfiles/jdk-7u40-linux-x64.tar.gz
-rw------- 1 kent kent 138021223 Sep 16 01:53 /usr/portage/distfiles/jdk-7u40-linux-x64.tar.gz

Though it seems the permissions now need to be manually set in order to work. ( IIRC, due to src_unpack now running as user instead of root under portage 2.2 )

Its never been a problem before for me, despite doing the exact same thing this time as I usually did, download, copy, install, and my previous java binaries show something of that nature.

ls -lat /usr/portage/distfiles/jdk*

I'm not sure why the latest isn't go+r , I haven't done anything different, maybe firefox changed here.

Either way, if this is something that can't be fixed automatically, then you perhaps should mention something like that in the download notes.

It was easy to fix this bug once I realised what was going wrong, I'd just rather not to have to fix it in the middle of an emerge cycle when portage bails unexpectedly, and I hope I don't have to fix this problem again ( Maybe it should be checked to be readable during the "has it been downloaded or not yet" step )

With FEATURES=userpriv, the ebuild runs as "portage" user and "portage" group. So, you may need to adjust ownership of files in some cases. Alternatively, you can remove userpriv from FEATURES:

  echo 'FEATURES="${FEATURES} -userpriv -usersandbox"' >> /etc/portage/make.conf
