After distro hopping for a while, I've finally come to the realization that Gentoo is the best. With a 64bit machine, nothing else really works well. Anyway, I installed Gentoo64 before I had Fedora, and now I'm trying to install again, but when I emerge gentoo-sources, It complains that it can'T make because there is no make file in the gentoo-sources amd64 directory. Actually, I checked, and there is no amd64 directory. I created one and simlinked it to x86_64, and of course when it unzipped the package again, my changes were destroyed. As always, any help greatly appreciated.
Did you try and emerge sync and emerge gentoo-sources again.
Dumb ? but you did select yours ;
Processor type and features --->

( ) AMD-Opteron/Athlon64

Need to see what is inside /src
if you have a kernel there and linux try
ln -s kernel-whatever linux
also if you are chrooted you should already be in /mnt/gentoo if not you are on the live cd side and it will not work from there, that may be your problem

Yes. I emerged slocate so I could find the package, but guess what: no mtab. Come to think of it, if you could give me the directory where portage stores it's archives, or a way to build enough of an mtab for updatedb to work, I think I can fix it.
Sorry for the delay in information: school. Ok, so the emerge commands told me that I was missing all kinds of stuff, but I still need kernel. The other thing is that I edited the linux-2.6.15.tar.gz archive, and symlinked amd64 to x86_64. Probably a bad idea because I just realized that X86 is intel. Anyway... portage complained at me for the archive not being the same as the original size. Any more ideas? Should I just install the kernel manually? Any ideas on how to do that?
