ebuild foo.ebuild digest problem
hi, im getting an error when tyring to generate a digest.
no package digest file found
type ebuild foo.ebuild digest to generate
ebuild /usr/portage/sys-kernel/gentoo-sources/files/digest-gentoo-sources-2.4.26_pre6 digest
name error in 2.4.: two decimal points in a row
error : PF is null 'digest-gentoo-sources-2.4." ; exiting
does anyone know how to solve this.... any help will be appreciated, thanks
bump, solved problem had to go to the ebuild directory and do the digest from there. now its working
The instruction did not say "type ebuild /path/to/foo.ebuild digest", and I'm fairly sure that the name of the package is not digest-anything-- oh, the error says that, as well.
So this is firstly a typo (you should type "ebuild <packagename>.ebuild digest", but if it's a real portage package, you shouldn't be having this problem in the first place, because it should have a digest.
So since I would guess that this is a new addition to portage (kernel 2.4.26_pre6? wow), maybe what you need to do is:
1) an emerge sync to update your portage tree (I had this problem day before yesterday when Wine-20040408 came out; I could see it in the online package list, but my local copy of Portage didn't know it was available to me until I did an emerge sync to update it)
2) use the command ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge --pretend --verbose gentoo-sources to confirm that if you emerge the most recent kernel you will in fact get 2.4.26_pre6 (the message will tell you what package it would pull, that's what --pretend --verbose is all about);
3) if the right one would be installed, just use the same command without --pretend --verbose, but if it would pull 2.4.26_pre3 or something, do ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge "=gentoo-sources-2.4.26_pre6" (with the quotes) as shown here, in the section about how to install a specific version of gnumeric.
But looking at the online package manager, you shouldn't have to do that; if you're not getting 2.4.26_pre6, it's most likely because your local portage tree is old, and an emerge sync will fix it right up, enabling you to do a normal emerge to get the package.
yes, i got it to work, did several updates to portage just to make sure it was correct, i only specified the path because it didnt go through, until i did cd to the directory, as for all that work, it didnt do any good as the 2.4.26 i was trying to install failed during compile, im now going to try the gentoo-test-sources for 2.6 with patches so i supposedly get sata support without much of the problems as before, hopefully i dont have to edit the hdparm again for timeout problems
