gentoo portage suse python problem ...

hi i'm trying to install the gentoo portage on suse using this 'guide
hey don't be mad , just testing it and planning to switch when i got used to it

anyway when

doing ./ install

i get this error
linux:/home/steefje/portage-2.0.51-r2/src/missingos # ./ install
running install
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 22, in ?
    url = "",

distutils.errors.DistutilsPlatformError: invalid Python installation: unable to open /usr/lib/python2.2/config/Makefile (No such file or directory)
when i browse to python2.2 there isn't a config folder ..
(must say that i have got some problems with yast , and didn't uninstall 2.3 , just forced 2.2 to install .. :$

anyway does anyone know what could be the problem ??

never mind about gentoo portage install

i 'discovered' apt for suse, didn't know i existed ....
advanced package tool , it searches for rpm's you want to install automaticly solves depencies and installes them all, i love it ..

just too bad i can't find some good 'miscelaneous' servers that don't only have updates
( i allready have pacman rpm server) does anyone know some more ?
