emerge errors during emerge -u world


Okay so I've been using gentoo for a couple months now and really enjoy it. I've been able to update everything without any problems until a couple of days ago. I meant to do an emerge -u system but typed "emerge system." Then I logged out of x and now kdm won't start. I just get the nvidia splash screen and then the screen goes blank, back to nvidia, etc until it just stops trying. The only file that was changed during that process was /init.d/hdparm. I have since tried emerge -u world and keep getting errors for the alsa driver.

!!! Function src_compile, Line 59, Exitcode 2
!!! Parallel Make Failed.

If I just do an emerge world then I get the same error for doxygen. If I screwed something up, is there anyway to fix it? I really don't want to have to start all over since it takes so long. I haven't changed any other config files. Thanks for the help in advance.

Was your x server updated? Was the kernel updated and need re-compiling? Did you etc-update?

I am in the middle of an update on one of my boxes and it is downloading X now. I saw lots of correspondence in the gentoo-user mailing list about a broken X, but I think the bug may be fixed now. You might try another emerge -u world. Sometimes an emerge -u --deep will help or as a last resort, you could try an emerge -e world overnight.

Have you posted on the Gentoo board? They are great folks there.

I'm not sure if x was uptdated. At one point, it wanted to but complained about xft. I unmerged xft (read the gwn) and then never got anymore about x. I have not recompiled my kernel...i don't remember a kernel upgrade but I'll check that out. I'll try what you suggested tonight when I get home. What does the -e flag do? It must take a while if it's an all nighter, but I haven't seen that before. Also, what does the --deep flag mean? Thanks for the help.

-e means emerge using empty tree (rebuild from scratch as if from stage 3)
--deep means check all the dependencies of the packages in your world for updates as well.

i wouldn't recommend getting into the habit of -u world-ing. never know - there might be a duff ebauild etc.... i'd suggest just -up world and pick out bits at a time.

Good to know, I'll do that from here on out...as soon as things get working again!

I'm getting errors now when it is trying to compile the new xfree. It says it can't find libz.so.1. Where do I get this from? Thanks.
