Just tried an emerge which current system, and same problem here. Looks like it is still broken :-(
Comment 6 Mike Hepple 2005-04-28 16:22:07 UTC
Problem also occurs on my machine.

Re-assigning stale bugs. Someone pick this up or remove the ebuild from portage.

I patched up this thing in -r1 to allow it to compile. It uses a lot of ancient
devfs stuff and other ancient kernel stuff, which I basically hacked and
slashed. Beware that my patch is dangerous!

That said, please test if it runs ok.

Comment 9 Marcelo Goes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-17 15:07:42 UTC
plex86 has many issues and no simple solution to all of them. Considering the
amount of very old kernel code it has, including the way it deals with devfs,
for example, it does not look like it will be easy to fix.

plex86 has three outstanding bugs at the time of this writing: bug 54526, bug
29159 and bug 17388. I have the feeling that if anybody was going to get them
fixed, they would have done so by now.

qemu should fill plex86's role in the future.

I'll probably remove plex86 from the tree very shortly. If anybody feels
different, you're welcome to reopen plex86 bugs and fix them :-)
