Xorg build error


Hi i am new to Linux, and recently installed gentoo on my machine. I am struggling to emerge x11-xorg. Everytime i do it, after about an hour I get the following:

/xkbcomp/geometry'
rm -f geometry.dir
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=../../../exports/lib XLOCALEDIR=../../../exports/lib/locale ../
../..exports/bin/xkbcomp -lfhlpR -o geometry.dir '*'
make[5]: *** [geometry.dir] illegal instruction
make[5]: *** Deleting file 'geometry.dir'
make[5]: Leaving directory '/var/tmp/portage/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1/work/xc/programs/xkbcom/geometry'

make: *** [World] Error 2

!!! ERROR: x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1 failed
!!! Function build, Line 956, Exitcode 2
!!! make World failed
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.


Is there anyway of resolving this problem. Appreciate any help, thanks.

you are running as root right ?


it looks like its having an issue deleteing a file im not so sure about gentoo tho because it does everything in the background.

you may have better luck grabbing from source and compiling manually

Yep i am running it as root? Do you reckon it's something to do with my /etc/make.conf is there anything i need to change here?

my current /etc/make.conf is:

CFLAGS="-02 -march=athlon-xp -mcpu=i686 -fomit-frame-pointer"
CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
MAKEOPTS="-j2"
USE="-gtk -gnome qt kde dvd als cdr java oss"

Thanks for any help.

Now I realise i might have made a mistake with my processor, its just a normal athlon, not athlon XP, so i modified to the following:

CFLAGS="-02 -march=athlon -fomit-frame-pointer"
CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
MAKEOPTS="-j2"
USE="-gtk -gnome qt kde dvd als cdr java oss"

So know when I emerge xorg-x11:

After about the same sort of time i know get this error:

../../exports/lib/libXfont.so: undefined reference to `FT_Get_PS_Font_Info'
../../exports/lib/libXfont.so: undefined reference to `FT_Stream_Seek'
