Gentoo libgpg-error-1.0 emerge problem


I have tried to emerge libgpg-error-1.0 and got the following error:-

LC_ALL undeclared...
I tracked the error down to the file gpg-error.c and was able to get the package to compile by changing

setlocale (LC_ALL, "" );

setlocale (LC_ALL, "");
The problem I have is that I want to emerge the altered package, but portage complains that the MD5 sums don't match. I have changed the file


to reflect the new MD5 sum and file size, but still portage complains. I feel there must be a cache somewhere that needs changing. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Try using the "ebuild" command instead of "emerge". Start with "ebuild <filename> digest", then "ebuild <filename> unpack". If the unpack step works, you can probably just emerge it, otherwise, "ebuild <filename> merge" will do it

I got round the problem by emerging a previous version of libgpg-error, and nothing seems to complain!

I will follow your instructions later...
