I've been wanting to build a TinyGentoo install for my BBS. So far, everything works well except when I try to do an env-update:

slappy / # env-update
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/env-update", line 27, in ?

NameError: global name 'parents_file' is not defined

I've been using stage1-x86-uclibc-2006.1.tar.bz2 and the SystemRescueCD.

At first, consider using newer uclibc stage, its beta but I used it and works perfectly. You can take it from here:

ftp://gentoo.po.opole.pl/releases/x86/2008.0_beta1/experimental/stage3-x86-uclibc-2008.0_beta1.tar.bz2

This message (your error traceback) is definately because of some kernel option missing - I invested A LOT of time to hunt this, but I couldn't. This error I got while testing and writing this: http://gentoo-wiki.com/Embedded_x86_Gentoo_%28live_CD_with_NTFS_write_support%29

The solution for this is to take config from kernel running from Gentoo Live CD - just remember that kernel on Gentoo CD is different than you use (probably older) so adjust the config accordingly.

While you may be uncertain to do this, I assure this method will work in 100%.

Good luck.

I went with the newer stage. I've been compiling and it's been working quite well.

Thanks.

Hi,
I decided to take the newer Stage3 package (stage3-x86-uclibc-2008.0_beta2.tar.bz2) and I've attempt to follow the instructions on Embedded_x86_Gentoo, however when I execute the command:
emerge sync && emerge -Du Linux-headers gentoo-sources gcc

I get this log:

I’m not 100% sure how to get the kernel config off of the live CD or where to copy it to in the chroot'ed tree.
I guess I'm pretty much off in the weeds right now on this topic.
Can someone point me to a webpage to help me get past this problem?
Thanks,

If I am not wrong, then in /proc you should have the kernel config as a tar.gz or gz file. Just extract it into the unpacked source tree in the chroot environment and then continue as you would do with a normal kernel update.

The Stage3 uclibc 2006 that I extracted didn't have any kernel sources in them /usr/src, that i could find, ( I'm sure I'm going to get flamed for this)l, but where in the chroot should I extract the config.gz file to?

This is normal. The stages do not have the kernel sources included.

You have a wrong impression of the Gentoo community. I allow myself to write in the name of our community telling you that we don't flame anyone here.

First you need to install/emerge any of the available kernel sources and then you extract the config.gz into /usr/src/linux/ directory.

umm..., does anybody know where these magic 2008 uclibc stages can be found now that 2008.0 has gone live? none of the mirrors have the beta1 or beta2 links anymore, and i cant find something like, stage3-x86-uclibc-2008.0.tar.bz2 and neither can google :(

if someone could show where one of these is, or offer their previous download of one of the beta builds, that would be awesome ;)
