Description crocket 2019-12-18 10:30:23 UTC
When I execute equery or emerge in qemu-aarch64 chroot, I see the following error message many times.

Unable to configure loopback interface: Operation not supported

I traced the error back to _configure_loopback_interface function in sys-apps/portage by searching the internet.

Try setting FEATURES="-network-sandbox" in make.conf.

I suspect there is nothing we can do in Portage to make this with in qemu-user.
Comment 2 crocket 2019-12-18 23:58:24 UTC
FEATURES="-network-sandbox" works around this issue. It seems qemu doesn't yet support pid-sandbox and network-sandbox
