I have an SS5 with 192 mb ram, and I am trying to install Gentoo 2004.1 on it. I managed to get past the bootstrap, but am facing problems with "emerge system".

I had the same problem with Gentoo 1.4 rc5. When I start "emerge system" i get lines and lines of this error message and then eventually the process fails.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!

No, the SS5 has a microSparc II running at 110 mhz. Does that help any?

Thanks,

I had a problem with 'emerge system' on my SS5, but I thought it might be because it was a turbosparc. I did a stage 3 install, and that seemed to work, but it was with the 1.4rc5 iso.

For the benefit of others on the forum, I am posting a follow up.

Well, a little more investigation led me to
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46593

Apparently, this is a known open bug. I tried the bandage, and coreutils compiled like a charm.

Cheers!
