if it looks good no
see above if crashes

the only thing i see is this:


* Determining the location of the kernel source code
* Unable to find kernel sources at /usr/src/linux
* Please make sure that /usr/src/linux points at your running kernel,
* (or the kernel you wish to build against).

I have an old drive I just installed with a 234 day old system. This inspires a rescue instead of a rebuild.

I am not sure how far
Code:
 emerge --keep-going -1avuND world

went, it was supposed to install over 1100 packages... but here is what I see at the end:

* Could not find a usable .config in the kernel source directory.
* Please ensure that /usr/src/linux points to a configured set of Linux sources.
* If you are using KBUILD_OUTPUT, please set the environment var so that
* it points to the necessary object directory so that it might find .config.
* ERROR: x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-319.49 failed (setup phase):
* Kernel not configured; no .config found in /usr/src/linux
*
* Call stack:
* ebuild.sh, line 93: Called pkg_setup
* nvidia-drivers-319.49.ebuild, line 118: Called linux-mod_pkg_setup
* linux-mod.eclass, line 560: Called require_configured_kernel
* linux-info.eclass, line 294: Called die
* The specific snippet of code:
* die "Kernel not configured; no .config found in ${KV_OUT_DIR}"
*
* If you need support, post the output of `emerge --info '=x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-319.49'`,
* the complete build log and the output of `emerge -pqv '=x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-319.49'`.
* The complete build log is located at '/var/tmp/portage/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-319.49/temp/build.log'.
* The ebuild environment file is located at '/var/tmp/portage/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-319.49/temp/die.env'.
* Working directory: '/var/tmp/portage/._portage_reinstall_.9yzhdm/pym'
* S: '/var/tmp/portage/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-319.49/work/'
* One or more packages are either masked or have missing dependencies:
*
* x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers pulled in by:
* (x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.13::gentoo, installed)

I am ready for the enxt step, assuming it is:
Code:
emerge --quickpackage world

emerge -uNDav --keep-going world on my 235 day old system has gone from 485 to 181 packages required and was blocked up in spite of keep-going this morning.

I see... I scrolled up to see if anything else failed, but I can scroll up only as much... in any case, at least 'vi' is working!

still in the second chroot:
suggest emerge gentoo-sources genkernel
genkernel menuconfig all
emerge -uNDav --keep-going world
should list some discrepancies, if so, say no and resolve them before restarting emerge

OK, I am on it..
this first emerge is done but I choked on the second one:


genkernel menuconfig all
Error: Unknown option 'menuconfig'!
I guess it was missing --menuconfig

genkernel --menuconfig all

gives a lot options in menuconfig. I have not made any changes, but perhaps I should have.

sorry thinking genkernel all,
typing wrong
just exit menuconfig and let genkernel finish
sounds like you did just that, excellent

No worries.. It is chugging along. Does genkernel compile in parallel i.e. does it use multiple CPUs if available? it certainly takes a long time...

This is an interesting thread, I wish you good luck!

There is an option in /etc/genkernel.conf where you can set MAKEOPTS for utilising more CPU cores:

Code:

# Genkernel uses an independent configuration for MAKEOPTS, and does not source
# /etc/make.conf . You can override the default setting by uncommenting and
# tweaking the following line. Default setting is set up by
# ${GK_SHARE}/${ARCH_OVERRIDE}/config.sh . The recommended value for -j
# argument is: <number of processors>*<number of cores per processor>+1
MAKEOPTS="-j"


Regards,
Johan

I am pretty sure I set it to -j10, but still sounds like takes a long time. But you can almost time the process from the posting time! On second thought, I may have have done this only in make.conf and not in genkernel.conf.. oh well, never too late to learn! thanks for the tip Johan.

Thanks for the article. Where does then your suggestion of
Code:
 emerge --quickpackage world
comes in here? One other concern is the USe usage, looks like it is important, and I am not sure if my broken system had the same as the new ones for most part. I suppose that is important only CPU related features.

Are you still having fun repairing the system here? :)
