Description Vitaly Kushneriuk 2002-01-09 10:41:00 UTC
sandbox reports access violation during unpack stage of the ebuild
when /var/tmp/portage is a symlink to other place[X].
To solve the problem I did:

rm -f /var/tmp/portage
mkdir /var/tmp/portage
mount -o bind X /var/tmp/portage

This is just a workaround, I think sandbox should handle this internaly.

You shouldn't create a symlink, but set the PORTAGE_TMPDIR env var to
/somewhere/place/tmp instead of /var/tmp. The sandbox handles that.
