Can you show me why/how bootstrapping of sed and python fails?

Also, you seem to be bootstrapping with old stuff.

execute the following commands:

$ emerge --sync
$ ( cd $EPREFIX/usr/bin && rm sed && ln -s ../../bin/sed )
$ gcc-config 1
$ emerge portage

then continue your emerge world.

Please post follow-ups on gentoo-alt@lists.gentoo.org.

Thanks!

I was thinking of trying a Prefixed install or portage on my PowerBook, this morning I came to find that portage was no longer being supported under the old method that I loved so much (for installing things like wget, tcptraceroute, etc I never ran into any issues, however from my understanding installing more complicated software could cause issues).

However before I go through doing a prefixed install of portage I wouldn't mind understanding why exactly this is necessary. Why does one need to go about installing portage in such a complicated manner?

To prevent problems like mac os updating the bash you installed by portage. There are many more reasons.
I recommend you join the gentoo-alt mailing list or hang out in #gentoo-alt on irc, as most ppl don't read this forum.
Also have a look at http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/gentoo-alt/prefix/
and http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/gentoo-alt/prefix/techdocs.xml
and http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/gentoo-alt/prefix/bootstrap-macos.xml

Hi, all :D

I've an Apple iBook 12'', PPC 1.4 with 512MB ram and, some times ago, I tryed the installation of gentoo-on-macosx.
Now, I have seen this thread but I look you have the new MacBook (with x86 arch).

Can I try to install gentoo prefix on my iBook or it's impossible?
And, if not, what kind of ACCEPT_KEYWORDS I have to set into /etc/make.conf??

Thanks for any help.
