I'm trying to install Gnome, and I keep getting the "die 'econf failed'" error for gnome-base/gnome-session-2.20.3. Here's the error:
checking for TCP wrappers... configure: error: "libwrap not found!"
ERROR: gnome-base/gnome-session-2.20.3 failed
ebuild.sh, line 49: Called src_compile
environment, line 2572: Called gnome2_src_compile
environment, line 1957: Called gnome2_src_configure
The specific snippet of code:
die "econf failed"
The die message:
I did a little research and found it may be to me missing tcp-wrappers. I remerged tcp-wrappers successfully, but I'm still having the same issue. Any ideas as to what's going on?
well, I've tried "emerge -pv libwrap" but there is no such ebuild.
The question is if there is something wrong with your tcp-wrapper. I had sometimes the problem that such a package needed more (or other) USE-flags. But the tcp-wrapper has only "-ipv6". Are there other failing dependencies in the logfile?
js-sandbox jsec # emerge -pv gnome-session
