Gentoo Stage1 install problems...


Hey gang,

I am doing a Gentoo Stage 1 type install. I have a stable and fast internet connection so this isn't the problem.

The problem is while running scripts/bootstrap.sh it teys to download a file from a computer that is nolonger hosting the file. The script then dies. (had to modify the URL below due to posting reqs with this list. Replace (dot) with . )

-- Error---
downloading from:
www(dot)trl(dot)ibm(dot)com/projects/security/ssp/gcc3_2_2/protector-3.2.2-8.tar.gz

ERROR 404: Not Found.

Couldn't download protector-3.2.2-8.tar.gz Aborting

------

I have found other locations for this file but how do I get the bootstrap.sh to go to the new locations? What to do?

Thanks.

Download mirrors are controlled through the GENTOO_MIRRORS line in your /etc/make.conf file. The default mirrors should be able to complete the install, have you added any to the beginning of the line? If you have, try removing them and leaving only the default oregonstate and ibiblio mirrors and see how far you get.

Try this

Yes, there is a bad link in the ebuild file.

* CHECK THESE TWO FILES TO SEE IF THEY ARE STILL BROKEN
*
* FILE 1:
cdimage / # ls -a /usr/portage/sys-devel/gcc
* if it contains: gcc-3.2.3-r1.ebuild
* do fix number one
*
* FILE 2:
cdimage / # ls -a /usr/portage/sys-devel/patch
* if it contains: patch-2.5.9.ebuild
* do fix number two
*
* DO THESE FIXES BEFORE YOU bootstrap.sh TO AVOID THESE TWO INSTALLATION BLOCKING PROBLEMS
*
* FIX NUMBER ONE:
* >>> to fix the "protector" problem: <<<
cdimage / # nano /usr/portage/sys-devel/gcc/gcc-3.2.3-r1.ebuild
* Search for "trl.ibm", find the line SRC_URI section that points to http://trl.ibm.com/projects/security/ssp/ . . . . .
* and replace this dead link with the following link:
* http://gentoo.nuclearzone.net/distfiles/protector-${PP_VER2}.tar.gz
*
* FIX NUMBER TWO:
* >>> to fix the "patch-2.5.9.tar.gz" problem: <<<
cdimage / # nano /usr/portage/sys-devel/patch/patch-2.5.9.ebuild
* Near the top of the file, change the address in the SRC_URI= to read
* SRC_URI="http://gentoo.oregonstate.edu/distfiles/${P}.tar.gz"

Taken from gentoo forums - hope I won't get into any copyright issues.

Thanks, that worked but.....

It's happening again only this time on "emerge system"

It bombs out on trying to get sash-3.4.tar.gz from www.canb.auug.org.au. Whats going on to all of the mirrors that they are dropping the files.

I just want to get Gentoo running on my laptop. I'm on a personal crusade to rid my life of all things Microsoft.....

While I've noticed that some Gentoo mirrors are slower to update than other, Portage will eventually find one that works, usually the packages home page which is encoded into the ebuild itself. It is extremely rare for it to bomb out with a 404 on all the mirrors that it's trying.

This is the GENTOO_MIRRORS line I use, it's basically the default with the PlanetMirror FTP archive added, I suggest trying i and seeing how far you get.

GENTOO_MIRRORS="ftp://planetmirror.com/pub/gentoo/ http://gentoo.oregonstate.edu/ http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/gentoo"

Look at at your make.conf
nano -w /etc/make.conf and make sure that you use the stable packages.
This should be commented like here.
#ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86"

I noticed some trouble with the downloads of unstable packages.
If you do want use unstable and can't get the package all that is left you can do is hunt it down on the net download it and put it into /usr/portage/distfiles provided the md5sums match.
Also emerge 'mirrorselect' as soon as possible.And 'ufed' if you need help with the USE flags.

I've been unsing the unstable packages for months and from memory, the only time I've ever had a package die with a 404 was version 3.2.4 of the ati-drivers as the ebuilds were released into Portage before the files were.
