has anyone tried the "emerge-webrsync" on a empty directory for portage-2.2?

in my config, the path is '/custom/tmp/portage/tree'


initially, the directory do not exist

Code:

sudo emerge-webrsync
Password:
!!! Invalid PORTDIR_OVERLAY (not a dir): '/custom/tmp/portage/tree'
!!! Section 'gentoo' in repos.conf has location attribute set to nonexistent directory: '/custom/tmp/portage/tree'
!!! main-repo not set in DEFAULT and PORTDIR is empty.
emerge-webrsync: error: Repository 'gentoo' not found


in previous version of portage, "emerge-webrsync" will create a directory automatically... :roll:

ok, so i "mkdir -p '/custom/tmp/portage/tree'", and retry

Code:

$ sudo emerge-webrsync
!!! Section 'gentoo' in repos.conf refers to repository without repository name set in '/custom/tmp/portage/tree/profiles/repo_name'
emerge-webrsync: error: Repository 'gentoo' not found


it still does not work :!:

Do anyone has some idea on this?


here is my config file

/etc/portage/make.conf
Code:

# built this stage.

and this one "/etc/portage/repos.conf/gentoo.conf" is generated automatically during portage upgrade, i have no idea why i need this file and how i config this
Code:

[DEFAULT]
main-repo = gentoo

[gentoo]
location = /custom/tmp/portage/tree
sync-type = rsync
sync-uri = rsync://rsync.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage

In my normal portage tree, "/usr/portage/profiles/repo_name" contains just the word "gentoo" in it.
I suppose you should create the file "/custom/tmp/portage/tree/profiles/repo_name" and make it only contain the word gentoo.

Just had this same issue on a stock/default install following the manual. This is only my second time through a Gentoo install, so I am a newbie (last time was >2 years ago so learning from scratch, basically).

That said, I didn't catch on right away, but the above solution works with a tweak. Had to create the file (and directories) /usr/portage/profiles/repo_name and drop the word gentoo in it.... I was really confused at first by the solution listed above, until I realized the obvious path difference :)

Something like this:

Code:
mkdir -p /usr/portage/profiles
echo "gentoo" > /usr/portage/profiles/repo_name



This...uh.. should probably be mentioned in the manual? Or is it a bug? I do not know, but I've been following the manual to the letter and do not see where I could have missed a step and this would be a serious setback to other fellow newbies. Rolling, now though! Cheers.

EDIT: replied here, because it is the top google result when you search for the error message in quotes and only one I found actually semi-related to my issue.... I'm sure to not be the last to encounter this...

A newer version of Portage (2.2.7 vs 2.2.1, as of time of this writing) is being rush-stabilized primarily to fix this exact bug. If this were an intended change in behavior, you're right, it would make sense to update the documentation. But it was unintended (a regression) and the fix is already available on ~arch and will be in arch (and thus the stage3 tarballs) hopefully very soon.

Hope this helps.

emerge --sync worked regardless the error for me, just rebuilt the laptops gentoo from scratch
