OK guys, after I figured that lot of people had problems regarding this, I thought a script is in order and hence a separate thread.

WARNING: I have verified each and every step in this script. I have everything in there from my own experience. Before you attempt to use it, make sure that you have a backup of the system(for weak hearted guys...:)). Have a look at the script and know what it does. Although, its not destructive in the sense that unless and until you emerge glibc straightaway, you are safe. Don't emerge glibc,gcc,binutils,baselayout. Alias emerge to something which asks for confirmation if its not "emerge -p <>". And if e.g. "emerge -p tar" tells you that its going to emerge binutils, make sure to inject binutils first. Make sure you have enough space in /(roughly at least 1GB). Just a friendly warning... :)

Here it goes:
---------------------------------------------------------------
Code:

#!/bin/bash

   echo "Install python 2.2 and then try again"
   echo ""

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This script is now officially tested by me and others.

Thanks.

PS:
I use the following script to prune out all packages I have marked unsafe for portage on Fedora.
-------------------------------------------------
Code:

#!/bin/bash
emerge sync
emerge -p -uD world > /tmp/world.update
for i in `cat /etc/portage/package.mask.ORG` ;
do
matching=`grep "$i" /tmp/world.update`
if [ -n "$matching" ]; then
toInject=`echo $matching|cut -d " " -f 4`;
echo "Injecting $toInject"
echo "$toInject" >> /etc/portage/profile/package.provided
fi
done
echo "# #"
echo "################# UPDATES #######################"
echo "# #"
cat /tmp/world.update

-------------------------------------------

Currently, my /etc/portage/package.mask.ORG looks like this:
--------------
Code:

sys-apps/baselayout
sys-apps/sysvinit
sys-fs/devfsd
sys-kernel/linux-headers
sys-libs/pwdb
sys-libs/pam
sys-libs/pam-login
sys-apps/kbd
sys-devel/bin86
net-misc/iputils
sys-apps/shadow
net-misc/dhcpcd
sys-apps/modutils
sys-libs/glibc
sys-apps/cronbase
x11-base/opengl-update
net-mail/mailbase
net-nds/portmap
sys-fs/e2fsprogs

-------------------

No specific reason for anything other than baselayout, glibc, gcc, binutils, I usually update these fabfour with up2date once in a while. These four you should never emerge on redhat/fedora. Remember, services are handled by different mechanisms in gentoo and other distros, so anything which has to do with services you can't really emerge because you didn't emerge baselayout and hence don't have rc-update script. you could hack around them though.

perfect for keeping xfree, gnome, multimedia kind of stuff up2date.

Good luck.

EDIT: How can I forget to thanks Crichards for floating this idea here? Thanks crichards!! please refer this thread as well:

http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=28559

EDIT: mar 10, 05
existing ld.so.conf is killed by portage because it doesn't know about redhat installed stuff. Fixed this in the script.
/EDIT

EDIT: feb 21 '05
update the script for latest portage. I link /etc/make.profile with gcc34 profile, feel free to change to your taste after installing. also, I do emerge gcc,binutils now on my FC2 install, works out better. so apart from some very specific stuff like sysvinit, baselayout, glibc you can pretty emerge whole system. I did a custom nitro2 install sometime back using portage on FC2, works out fine.
/EDIT

EDIT: 03-03-2004

Somebody posted the link for rescue tars in responses, just updating it here at the top:

http://dev.gentoo.org/~carpaski/portage_rescue/

/EDIT

EDIT: Jan 22
found a much easier way to install portage on a non-gentoo system.

get the rescue tarball for your arch from here:

ftp://ftp.ucsb.edu/pub/mirrors/linux/gentoo/gentoo-x86-portage/sys-apps/portage/files/

read the README.RESCUE. Untar, emerge sync and emerge portage should get you on your way!!

Wow! Not a single response. This is a great news for gentoo! A lot has changed since jan last year. I thought lot of people didn't want to re-install linux and just wanted portage to work on their distro so they could have the best of both worlds. But I think most people have already jumped ship to gentoo(or they don't understand the beauty the portage is). And after having used the former favourite distro for a while alongwith Gentoo, I know why I shouldn't ask "why"? :)

I totally jumped ship from Mandrake to Gentoo. It was time to learn all I could about Linux in general and what it really takes to run this OS. While I have certainly hit a number of bumps (most notably ALSA with nForce2), these forums (especially the Documentation, Tips & Tricks one) really made a HUGE diffference in helping me overcome those areas that I wasn't sure about. Also, the installation docs are by far some of the best I have ever seen. I've pointed several of my Windows co-workers at them and even they agree that anyone can install Gentoo. Kudos to everyone here and I'm looking forward to installing the 2.6.x kernel....once Gentoo updates their documentation :twisted:

you might wanna look here...

http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=70838

upgrading to 2.6 is easier than it looks...I would recommend gentoo-dev-sources (instead of development-sources) mainly for acpi and bootsplash, if you are not into "patching the kernel yourself" kind of mode...

I'm trying to get portage up and running on a redhat 7.3 box in work(while my boss isn't looking)

I don't have access to a working gentoo machine.

Can anyone supply me with the contents of /usr/portage/profiles? I've looked around and
tried downloading some packages, but I can't find it anywhere?

Thanks,

Paul

Thanks for the script!!

devsk, you're a genius! I'm slowly but surely getting this going on a RedHat9 server... it's been slow-going, but I've got hopes that it will pull through... I would've just gone with Gentoo on the server if it was my decision, but it isn't so I'm trying to make admin'ing it as painless as possible.. :)

I have run into a couple problems, however.

First, ncurses bombs during 'emerge portage':
Code:

cd ../obj_s;  g++ -I../c++ -I../include -I. -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -DNDEBUG -D_GNU_SOURCE -I. -I../include -O2 -mcpu=i686 -pipe -fPIC -c ../c++/cursesf.cc
/bin/sh: line 1: g++: command not found
make[1]: *** [../obj_s/cursesf.o] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/portage/ncurses-5.3-r5/work/ncurses-5.3/c++'
make: *** [all] Error 2

!!! ERROR: sys-libs/ncurses-5.3-r5 failed.
!!! Function src_compile, Line 58, Exitcode 2
!!! make failed


I've tried copying over 'g++' from my gentoo laptop (which runs a different version of gcc (3.2.3-r3) and that didn't work. I even symlinked g++ to gcc (version 3.3.2) on the RH system, but that didn't work either. I installed GCC on the Red Hat system via rpm.. How should I properly get 'g++' working? Not being a good programmer, I don't know what to do..:-/

you would need package "gcc-c++". if you are gcc 3.3.2, then

http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/1/i386/os/Fedora/RPMS/gcc-c++-3.3.2-1.i386.rpm

would need to be downloaded and installed.

your redhat CD will have the compatible "gcc-c++" RPM if you are not updated to the latest...

I'm about to put a fresh install of fedora on my machine. Gentoo just won't play well with my mn31n nforce2 mobo, and my co-worker has fedora running well on his, so I'll going to try to get the portage working on it. I'll post my results when I'm finished.

I think you are left with the script. they have removed the x86 rescue tar(very naughty of them)...at least I couldn't find it...you can still give the script a run!!

Does anyone know what's happened to portage in cygwin? Is the project still alive?

So, are there any packages that would be considered "unsafe" on Slackware (other than the fab-four, of course).

not used slackware, so no idea. In general, anything that changes stuff with boot and login should be emerged with great care.

i've tried this on a redhat 8.0 install.
it seems to work for the most part.
i didn't run the script directly, just typed out each command in the script one by one to make sure everything worked. a couple of points to note:
- the newest portage is portage-2.0.50-r1.tar.bz2
- useradd fails with the -G option because the group is already created in the previous step. using -g instead works.
- `emerge -p glibc|grep ebuild|cut -d" " -f8` includes all of the dependencies of glibc including gcc and binutils so there's no need to inject them seperately.
- a couple extra symlinks are needed to get rid of some errors during emerges:
cd /etc/init.d
ln -s /sbin/depscan.sh .
ln -s /sbin/functions.sh .

Hi I love portage and I have been trying to get this script to work on a Slackware 9.1 install (mainly because I simply don't have the time to invest 72 hours+ to get Gentoo up and running - I've done it about 8 times already and I think that's enough to show how capable I am). However Slackware just does not have the same range of sofware that Gentoo has.

The main problem when I run this script is that - well to be honest it doesn't work: Here is the way I have laid it out and also the output I got after running it. (I had to move most of it over to the left to line up with the command prompt - as the html formatting above seems to have knocked it out of line - or to put it another way it just wouldn't run at all like that.

Here is what I did and the ouput I got:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
#
# call with one argument "again" or call it with no arguments at all
# call it with no arguments first time.
# call it again with "again" to bypass some operations.
#
                                                                                
if [ "$#" == "1" ];then
again=$1
else
again=""
fi
                                                                                
if [ "`id -u`" != "0" ]; then
echo ""
echo "Su as root and try again."
echo ""
fi
                                                                                
pythonV=`python -V 2>&1`
if [ "$pythonV" \< "Python 2.2.0" ];then
echo ""
echo "Install python 2.2 and then try again"
echo ""

Something wrong. Get /usr/portage/profiles dir from a working
Gentoo system and try again.

bash-2.05b#


I checked and /usr/portage/profiles is there - but what would be the point of getting one from a working portage install just to copy it? I mean if I did that I would need to install Gentoo - and if I did this, why wouldn't I just keep it?

Any help anyone can offer would be very much appreciated, I was really hoping that someone would come up with a working script to do this some day.

all "if" statements have failed with "command not found"....shell 'export' fails...that's old 'sh' behaviour, not bash behaviour. Try save the script as Portage (w/o .sh) and then run it, make sure /bin/bash is not pointing to /bin/sh (older sh) and BASH_ENV is set to some sane script.

that copy to python2.2/site-packages is not required for portage 2.0.50, I will remove it from the script. simply cut and paste the script again. it works without any editing/identation/editing required.
