Arch is not set (Gentoo 2004.2)


Hi i'm trying to install gentoo 2004.2. Everything went correctly until i have to do this

Code:
 emerge gentoo-dev-sources
It gives me the following error:

ARCH is not set... Are you missing the /etc/make.profile symlink ? Is the symlink correct? Is your portage 3 complete?

So i opened the make.profile file, and it was empty . Tried going back in the manual and redo everything resulted in the same error.

Can anyone help me fix this error ?

Try this:

rm -rf /etc/make.profile
ln -s /usr/portage/profiles/default-x86-2004.2 /etc/make.profile
