Here's my emerge world: emerge -DuNva world
I got a few errors I'm not sure of.
Any ideas?

Here are the XATTR flags in my .config file:
azzerare linux-3.7.10-gentoo # grep XATTR .config
CONFIG_EXT2_FS_XATTR=y
CONFIG_EXT3_FS_XATTR=y
CONFIG_TMPFS_XATTR=y
# CONFIG_CIFS_XATTR is not set
azzerare linux-3.7.10-gentoo #

Code:

I believe it may be fixed already. Give it time for the fix to propagate through the mirrors, re-sync and retry.

Those should just be warnings (non-fatal). They are typical if you have PORTAGE_TMPDIR on a tmpfs. tmpfs does not support user extended attributes, which are required for the XATTR_PAX markings.

Thanks for the reply. What exactly is PORTAGE_TMPDIR on a tmpfs and where is it set?

PORTAGE_TMPDIR is set in make.conf; it defaults to /var/tmp.

tmpfs is a type of filesystem that lives in memory. If you don't know what it is, chances are you are not using it for /var/tmp.

In any case, if you aren't using a hardened (PaX) kernel, the warnings don't matter.
