Problem installing Gnome on Gentoo


Hi @ all

im currently trying to install (emerge) Gnome-2.10.1 on Gentoo (kernel = Gentoo-Sources-2.6.9-r9) but everytime the PC stops emerging on xorg-x11-6.8.2-r2 with

Code:
../../exports/lib/libX11.so: undefined reference to '__dlsym'
../../exports/lib/libX11.so: undefined reference to '__dlclose'
../../exports/lib/libX11.so: undefined reference to '__dlopen'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[4] *** [appres] Error 1
make[4] Leaving directory ...
make[3] *** [all] Error 2
and so on ...

!!! ERROR x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r2 failes.
!!! Funtion build, Line 974, Exitcode 2
!!! make World failed
I already emerged an newer version of glibc, gcc, linux-headers and flex ... nothing. I also executed env-update to regerate the ls.so.cache but the problem remains.

If somone has a idea to solve this problem or knows which package probably causes this problem (so i can re-emerge or install a newer version) please post a replay.

Last time I had gentoo installed it annoyed me, having to "re-invent the learning wheel" everytime I wanted to do anything. So I didn't really get into it as much as I should have, but you might try having a look here!

regards

Not much use now, but in case other people have this problem, here's the solution (or rather, work-around) that I found:

On my Gentoo system, this happened when /usr/lib/libdl.so disappeared. This isn't a real file, it's a symlink to /lib/libdl.so.2 , so just re-create it, then run 'ldconfig' to make sure the system knows where to find it - e.g.:

Code:
cd /usr/lib
ln -s /lib/libdl.so.2 ./libdl.so
ldconfig
That should fix the problem at least temporarily, but it won't stop something (I don't know what) deleting the symlink again sometimes.
