cant emerge =gnome-base/control-center


ive been trying to install gnome in gentoo for 4 days with the help of somone on the gentoo forums with no luck. here is a link
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-2568149.html
i keep getting the same error when i try to emerge gnome-base/control-center.

Code:
gcc-config error: Could not run/locate "i386-pc-linux-gnu-gcc"
Error: Empty file

** (process:17715): WARNING **: ../idl/GNOME_SettingsDaemon.idl compilation failed
make[2]: *** [GNOME_SettingsDaemon.h] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/portage/control-center-2.10.0/work/control-center-2.10.0/gnome-settings-daemon'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/portage/control-center-2.10.0/work/control-center-2.10.0'
make: *** [all] Error 2

!!! ERROR: gnome-base/control-center-2.10.0 failed.
!!! Function gnome2_src_compile, Line 37, Exitcode 2
i had 2.8 working fine (from cd) but i had screen problems and i tried to fix it by reinstalling xorg and gnome. i did this, made a xorg.conf and fixed my problems eventualy. but along the way i did decide to reinstall gnome, but without the cd (online). it said i had to get rid of some stuff first, so i did "emerge -unmerge gnome-base/control-center" along with a few others. i then tried "emerge gnome" and it tried to install 2.10. this is where all my problems started.

im asuming that the problem is that it cant find "i386-pc-linux-gnu-gcc". its in /usr/bin. i know this and i can see it. is there a way to tell the computer that that is where it is?

or could it be that it is a bad file. if so how do i replace it.

mmmm yeah I think I see your problem.
does this happen for everything you compile? example try to emerge madplay (it's a command line music player) do u get the same error? gcc-config error: Could not run/locate "i386-pc-linux-gnu-gcc"

try this
gcc -v

what version does it display? for gentoo it should be higer than what you have, it should be i686, after all that is what you have in your make.conf

do this gcc-config -c what does that say? that is ur current version
here's a link

that's freaking weird dude, like the dude from gentoo forums recommanded have you try to re emerge glibc?? try that maybe that will work

after that re-emerge gnome, if that don't do it mmmmm remerge --emptytree gnome maybe but i am not sure yet thou, you could post that on the gentoo forum and ask. Because that will re-emerge almost everything including you X server and you will have to either make back ups of ur config files or re configure them.

I'll look aroung and if i find anything else I'll link you up!

did you try the little howto?

ill try it. if it doesn't work i think ill try reinstalling the whole thing from scratch (another 4 hours ) because it was working at one time and i dont have anything on my comp yet. and besides another 4 to 6 hours of computing beats another 5 to 8 days of trying to fix stuff

This *might* fix it, but will probably take longer than rebuilding from scratch...

emerge --sync
emerge gentoolkit
glsa-check -f all
emerge -uDv world
emerge -v depclean
emerge -v glibc gcc
emerge -uDv world
revdep-rebuild -v

followed by fixing all of your config files.

This will update everything (except for packages specified in package.keywords) to latest stable or ~x86 depending on your USE flag. Since a new version of the kernel headers got bumped to stable, you'll also be rebuilding your tool-chain a couple of times.

Earlier windowsrefugeex suggested switching to gcc 3.4.x . If you go this route, just wipe and rebuild the whole thing, using this page http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t...stage+1+3.html as a how-to.

yeah it looks like it would take a bit longer hehehehe or can't he just use the --emptytree option it would almost be the same thing no?

emerge --emptytree -v glibc and then emerge --emptytree -v gnome

it would take some time depending how fast ur pc is
