Greetings everyone, I recently switched from Arch 2011 to a freshly installed Calculate Linux, so this is my first time with pure Portage, last distro I used was Sabayon... Anywho, I'm trying to install the calculate-server package and it gives me the following error:
Code:


calculate eddie_nygma # emerge calculate-server


!!! Error fetching binhost package info from 'ftp://ftp.linux.kiev.ua/pub/Linux/Calculate/CLDG/grp/x86_64'
!!! [Errno socket error] [Errno -3] Temporary failure in name resolution


Fetching bininfo from ftp://ftp.linux.kiev.ua/pub/Linux/Calculate/CLDG/grp/x86_64
 * No password provided for username 'anonymous'

cache miss: '0' --- cache hit: '0'
Calculating dependencies... done!

!!! The ebuild selected to satisfy ">=net-dns/bind-9.6.1_p1[sdb-ldap]" has unmet requirements.
- net-dns/bind-9.8.3_p1::gentoo USE="berkdb ipv6 (multilib) ssl -caps -dlz -doc -geoip -gost -gssapi -idn -ldap -mysql -odbc -postgres -rpz -sdb-ldap (-selinux) -static-libs -threads -urandom -xml" CDISTRO="CLDG desktop"

  The following REQUIRED_USE flag constraints are unsatisfied:
    berkdb? ( dlz ) sdb-ldap? ( dlz )

  The above constraints are a subset of the following complete expression:
    postgres? ( dlz ) berkdb? ( dlz ) mysql? ( dlz !threads ) odbc? ( dlz ) ldap? ( dlz ) sdb-ldap? ( dlz ) gost? ( ssl ) threads? ( caps )

(dependency required by "sys-apps/calculate-server-2.1.15-r6[-calculate_nonamed]" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "calculate-server" [argument])

So how do I get this package successfully installed, do I run USE flags, this is my first time using all the gentoolkit commands, but I am a programmer so bear with me, how do I solve it?

Quizmaster,

What it's trying to tell you is with 'berkdb? ( dlz )' is if you have berkdb enabled then dlz needs to be enabled

In gentoo I would echo "net-dns/bind dlz" >> /etc/portage/package.use

I can't speak for Calculate Linux though :?

Quizmaster ...

You should direct such questions at the caluclate linux forums ... this forum is for Gentoo, we can not support derivative distributions.

Thanks, but in case you guys haven't noticed, no ever posts on there, it isn't exactly active so that's why.. Also I built this one from Scratch 'cause when I tried to install Gentoo 12.1 from System Rescue Cd, turns out my disc was corrupted but I will give it another try eventually. Here is my output if anyone is at all interested, I've posted on the Calculate forums and I will probably be back for authentic Gentoo questions:
Code:


calculate eddie_nygma # echo "net-dns/bind dlz" >> /etc/portage/package.use
bash: /etc/portage/package.use: Is a directory

Then you can use echo "net-dns/bind dlz" >> /etc/portage/package.use/filename.use

You can replace the filename.use with any name you want. At least you can in Gentoo. I like to organised my files in these directories by what programs do, like games, programming, etc. Just don't overwrite an existing file!

Quizmaster ... OK, but you don't see this as anykind of sign? Gentoo "[...] is a community built around a distribution", if someone wants to use whatever code is produced, fine, but they don't get the community, as the community is of a higher value than the code. Anyone can build a distribution "based on Gentoo", that's the easy part ... having a community of users and developers is what makes it a viable proposition. Now, why should we support a project that has no relation to the Gentoo "community" other than using its code?

Moved from Portage & Programming to Unsupported Software. @Quizmaster, this doesn't mean that you won't get support, but merely properly categorizes the thread.
