PostPosted: Wed Aug 06, 2003 1:38 am    Post subject: How does GRP work? Reply with quote

I've got both P3 Gentoo 1.4 CDs and I'm trying to do a GRP install. One problem, though, when I try, say:

USE="bindist" emerge -k xfree

emerge starts downloading packages from the mirrors, and DOES NOT use those in /usr/portage. I have checked and all the things I "cp -a" from the two CDs (yes, both) are there. So, why won't emerge use them? Is it because I my /etc/make.conf has a big USE line?

Please help...

I have the same problem. When I try to emerge -k gentoo-sources, it starts downloading it instead of using the packages directory. Looks to be a bug in the process.

Just to confirm, I am seeing the same thing. I downloaded the CD's from "University of Wisconsin at Madison Chemistry Department (USA)"

I have the same issue as well.

I notice it's looking for .tar.bz2's in the distfiles directory when all the packaged were .tbz2's in the packages directory. Maybe that could be it.

Hey,
I just realized, the iso's I downloaded were marked:

pentium4-1.4-20030731-cd2.iso
pentium4-1.4-20030731-cd1.iso

Thats 7-31-2003, so my guess is these are nightly build leading up the 1. 4 release. I'm trying to find some correctly marked iso's now.

So do the pentium3s. The athlon-xps are marked the same as pentium4s. Very strange.

The datestamps aren't very relevant; we started datestamping the last modification time to allow us to make further changes in the future if necessary.

I'm very interested in the kernel issue - the reason it's looking in distfiles is that we don't provide binary kernels, we just provide the source (which can be compiled manually or using genkernel).

All of the source files should be in /usr/portage/distfiles - can the people having problems please provide all of the output from the following:

'ls /usr/portage/distfiles'
'emerge info | grep DISTDIR'
'emerge -f gentoo-sources'

A workaround:

You should have /usr/portage/distfiles/linux-2.4.20.tar.bz2 if you copied over distfiles from the CD (it's in the install guide).

emerge inject sys-kernel/vanilla-sources-2.4.20
cd /usr/src
tar -xvjf /usr/portage/distfiles/linux-2.4.20.tar.bz2
cd linux-2.4.20

...and run any manual compilation or genkernel commands you want as per the install guide.

Will the rest of the binaries run into the same emerge issue as well?

I did copy the distfiles, only I have no kernel sources in that folder on the CD.

very cool

I, regrettably, must go to sleep; it's 10 of 4 AM here and I have work in the morning.

I will gladly try your solution out tomorrow.

Thank you for all your help :) .

I was wrong about the distfiles thing.

I can't reproduce this here at all. People affected by this should try the following in this order:

emerge -K gentoo-sources
emerge /usr/portage/packages/All/gentoo-sources*tbz2

And let me know what the results are.

I need to catch some sleep too - I'll be checking back in a few hours.

emerge -K gentoo-sources gives me a "There are no packages available to satisfy: "gentoo-sources"

emerge /usr/portage/packages/All/gentoo-sources*tbz2 won't work because there is no directory 'All'. All tbz's are in /usr/portage/packages (per instructions)

emerge /usr/portage/packages/gentoo-sources*tbz2 gives me a "CATEGORY info missinf from info chunk, aborting..."

Jeez, I've had quite a night of incorrect theories.

Turns out it's the worst kind of bug - a documentation bug.

Instead of:

cp -a /mnt/cdrom/packages/* /mnt/gentoo/usr/portage/packages/

it should have been:

cp -a /mnt/cdrom/packages /mnt/gentoo/usr/portage/packages

Fixed install doc is in CVS and wil hit the website soon.

For people who already have this problem:
cd /usr/portage/packages
mkdir All
mv *tbz2 All/

then try proceeding with merging the kernel as per the install guide.

Quick note: also fixed a couple other problems with the install guide, so people may want to take a look.
