Description thekillerbean 2002-07-17 23:35:28 UTC
Below is what i got when trying to install Gentoo on a virtual machine (vmware 
3.1) running on Windows 2000 Adv. Srvr.  Typing emerge system after this 
results in the same error message immediately.  I deleted all occurence of the 
files and folders related to the ftp pogram but still getting this problem.  
Could it be 'cause i'm using vmware?

>>> emerge net-ftp/ftp-0.17-r1 to /
>>> md5 ;=) netkit-ftp-0.17.tar.gz
>>> Unparking source...
>>> Unpacking netkit-ftp-0.17.tar.gz
>>> Source unpacked.
/usr/sbin/ ./configure: No such file or directory

!!! Error: The ebuild did not complete successfully.
!!! Function src_compile, Line 2, Exitcode 127
!!! (no error message)

!!! emerge aborting on  /usr/portage/net-ftp/ftp/ftp-0.17-r1.ebuild .
