Description Georgy Repin 2005-01-21 13:53:53 UTC
HW : p4 3.0 (prescott), Seagate 7200.7 40G , 2G DDR400 RAM.
When i try to install gentoo from universal livecd 2004.3, 
acting according gentoo handbook, it is unable to perform
"emerge system". My actions : chrooting (all pre-actions subscribed in handbook
are carefully performed),then syncing - "emerge --sync", then "" and when finally bootstrapping finished i call "emerge system" and ... emerge says 
that there are no packages need to be installed !!! but when i try to emerge fcron at this point, for example, emerge says that it needs to install some "system" libraries that i think cron depends on ... and moreover - i dont actually remember - but one application has compilation failed - this application wants libtool, and thinks that libtool was already installed !!!
and emerge do not even try to install libtool as dependency !!! 

I performed installation procedure twice - and twice i was affected with this bug ... what is this ?  

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start to install gentoo according handbook from 2004.3 livecd
2.After chrooting, perform emerge --sync (i perform this on 20.01.2004 ~ 18.00-23.00, Moscow time) ""
4."emerge system" - at this point emerge will say that there are no packages need to be installed

Actual Results:  
command "emerge system" has no effect

Expected Results:  
start to install "system" packages

what stage did you start with ?  please show the full filename
Comment 2 Georgy Repin 2005-01-22 02:00:37 UTC
CD: Universal live CD 2004.3
Stage: stage1-x86-2004.3.tar.bz2
Portage snapshot: portage-20041022.tar.bz2
rsync server: rsync://
sync date: 20.01.2005 ~ first time 18.00 (GMT + 3), second time 23.00 (GMT + 3)

And more. In november 2004 - i used this livecd to install gentoo on my homenet gatway computer. And there was no problem at all.And when i install gentoo without
"emerge --sync" - its all fine ! 
I think there could be some bug in the portage or probably bug in the portage tree structure ...
