I can't seem to get gentoo installed. I have done it before beautifully, but this time I'm having shit loads of problems. This is now my 4th attempt.

I can get up to compiling X without any issues.

now when I try to compile X it fails on various packages each time I try.

last time it was xf86 4.2.0rc9, something about error line 2 and quits. (will try and get exact error msg) - oh just remembered, something about stack - is this a ram or cpu problem?

what on earth could be going wrong? I'm so tired...

I have an athlon system, 1800+, 512mb ram.. really starting to lose focus and patience..

should I compile from scratch ? or use stage 3 tarball ? standard make variables? or ?

could someone please recommend cpu flag settings I should use for my make.config file (if I should), based on amd XP cpu ? PLEEEEASE ?

I had gentoo working so well b4... now it's all screwed :evil:

ta..

I use the following settings in my make.conf for my Athlon 1700:

Code:
CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
CFLAGS="-march=i686 -O3 -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="-march=i686 -O3 -pipe"

so just the standard settings ? I have those.. what about any extras?

the XP is actually a 7th generatino x86 cpu.. can we compile linux with 786 ? or does it stop at 686 ?

AFAIK, gcc only goes up to 686. I've never seen any reference to a "786" march.
