not able to emerge sync
im in the middle of installing gentoo on my other comp. and the gentoo documentation tells me to type this in the cosole line

# mount -t proc proc /mnt/gentoo/proc
# cp /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf
# chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
# env-update
Regenerating /etc/
# source /etc/profile

but when i put in the 'env-update' command it gives me an error saying that /etc/make.profile/make.defaults isn't available. so the site tells me you can easly fix this error by doing a 'emerge sync' but to be able to use that command you have to be connected to the internet in my understanding. one problem tho...i dont have a modem/nic on my linux this means i cannot complete my installation without being connected to the internet on my linux comp? :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

With Gentoo in general you will need a computer with a connection. To do an emerge sync you definitely will (well, pretty much). This syncs your files against a list of ones on the server you are syncing with.

This is why Gentoo is always up to date, it's syncing with a current server keeps all packages pristine and very new, works great with the emerge concept, doesn't work great if you don't have a connection.

yes you need a fast net connection all the time with gentoo... why did you think the download cd was so small?
