I'm trying to install Gentoo next to Windows 7 on a Samsung laptop, and I've gotten to the part where I should build the kernel. When I get to the part where it tells me to run 'emerge gentoo-sources', it runs, and then has the error 'Unable to remove module man pages' when installing dev-lang/perl-4.12.4-r1. Earlier on in the install, I am seeing errors like this:
Code:
rm: cannot remove '/var/tmp/portage/dev-lang/perl-5.12.4-r1/image//usr/share/man/man3/mro.3pm': Bad file descriptor

Earlier in the install, there were some problems that seemed small, e.g. there was no /etc/portage/make.conf or /etc/portage/make.conf.example
I have no idea what is going wrong, so any suggestions would be great.

Thanks,
uncleshelby

Welcome, uncleshelby

It seems you may have some filesystem corruption, umount it and run fsck on it.

Hmm, getting out of the chroot and running umount /mnt/gentoo/ returns 'device is busy'.
EDIT: Oh, and I can remove those files by hand once the emerge fails.
EDIT2: I rebooted, and after remounting and chrooting, it all worked.

Hello,

I wanted to change ubuntu to gentoo on my desktop long time ago and after ubuntu's been broken after update to 12.04 I have a good reason to do it.
Just today I had a similar issue with "unable to remove module man pages". The proble was in missing mount:

Code:

# mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc


I hope, this might help
