I tried to do emerge --sync in a new install (without X) and I cannot sync at all!
This is the message:

Code:
# emerge --sync
!!! getaddrinfo failde for 'rsync': [Ettno -2] Na me or service not known
>>> Starting rsync with rsync://rsync/gentoo.gr/gentoo-portage...
>>> Checking server timestamp ...
rsync: getaddrinfo: rsync 873: Name or service not known
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(122) [Receiver=3.0.9]
>>> Retrying...
!!! Exhausted addresses for rsync


I changed the rsync mirror address, but with no luck.
In the same time, I'm able to emerge packages, but when I give emerge --sync or eix-sync, syncing fails with the above message.
What is this mean?

What is the value of your SYNC variable in make.conf? It should look something like this (replace XX with a country code if you want or omit it):
Code:
SYNC="rsync://rsync.XX.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage"

Here in the US sync will work fine without SYNC variable set. From Gentoo docs:

Quote:
Note: If you want to manually set a SYNC server in make.conf, you should check out the community mirrors list for the mirrors closest to you. We recommend choosing a rotation, such as rsync.us.gentoo.org, rather than choosing a single mirror. This helps spread out the load and provides a failsafe in case a specific mirror is offline.

Thanks, guys, the rsync parameter was set wrongly. Somewhere between the address there was a "slash"! Now it syncs fine!
