I'm working through the install, using hardened sources on an AMD64 machine. I've just used chroot to move into the new environment but when I try either the emerge-webrsync or the emerge --sync commands I get permission denied, and sudo su gets the same response.

What could be causing such an outcome?

linuxuser,

Welcome to Gentoo.

Run
Code:
emerge --info
If FEATURES includes
Code:
userfetch userpriv
the portage will used the portage user for fetching and building wherever it can. This means that /usr/portage/* needs to be writable by the portage user, but that should just work.

Try as root
Code:
FEATURES="-userfetch -userpriv" emerge --sync
this makes emerge pun as root, which should not be required.

Which stage3 file did you use?

What does
Code:
eselect profile list
show the * against ?

Hi, thank you for your response.

I have since re-done the installation and have not recieved this error, I had to re-run earlier steps a few times, as my computer crashed periodically due to overheating, I guess I missed a step. Letting the machine cool and being able to complete the steps in one go has avoided the same problem repeating.
