I've been trying, off and on, for the past day or two to get this install of gentoo up and running well enough so I can wipe out my Mandrake partition. However, I can't get Gnome, evolution, or Gaim to install.

They all bomb out with an error like this:

So, are all the servers for the code down? Do I have something ocnfigured wrong? Can I force emerge to snag the files from a different server?

Thanks.

Try running 'emerge rsync' and then 'emerge gnome' again.

I had the same problem last nite.
I retried it this afternoon and got all the files with no problems.
BTW I found out that I had to do unmerge on Mozilla 1.0 rc to get Gnome to compile.

Welp, emerge rsync and emerge gnome didn't help, (same error), so I guess I'll try again tomorrow in case they're just having server problems or something.

Still no dice, I'm getting the same errors. I've emerge rsynced twice, once yesterday, once today, and I still get an Error 404 from ibiblio and Host not found from yggdrasil.

Am I missing something? Or should I try finding some Gnome RPMs or something?

I've just checked, and it's not on ibiblio yet... Don't know why...
But you can get it here:
ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/stable/latest/sources/gnome-core-1.4.0.7.tar.gz
Download it to your /usr/portage/distfiles and it should work...

Well, I wish I'd have realized I could put the source there and have it work, but now I know.

It worked like a charm.

Thanks!
