Hello!
Recently, I have tried to install Gentoo. Unlike Arch, it keeps throwing out different kinds of errors, but I've solved them. Except one.
It goes right after unpacking stage3 and chrooting.
Code:
# mirrorselect -i -o >> /mnt/gentoo/etc/portage/make.conf
# mirrorselect -i -r -o >> /mnt/gentoo/etc/portage/make.conf
# cp -L /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/
# mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
# mount --rbind /sys /mnt/gentoo/sys
# mount --rbind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev
# chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
# source /etc/profile
# export PS1="(chroot) $PS1"
# mkdir /usr/portage
# emerge-webrsync

!!! Section 'gentoo' in repos.conf refers to repository without repository name set in '/usr/portage/profiles/repo_name'
!!! main-repo not set in DEFAULT and PORTDIR is empty.
emerge-webrsync: error: Repository 'gentoo' not found

What I have to do now? I don't tend to leave things as they are, so any help would be deeply appreciated.

UPD: Oh, and /usr/portage is always empty, but this is kind of predictable.

1. Download current portage snapshot.
2. Unpack it to /usr

Un-tarring it from existing Linux (ofc in terminal) will do? Or I have to reboot immediately to live-USB?

Personally I would do this whilst you are chrooted:
Code:
# wget distfiles.gentoo.org/snapshots/portage-latest.tar.bz2
# tar xvjf portage-latest.tar.bz2 -C /usr
# rm portage-latest.tar.bz2


or

Code:
# wget distfiles.gentoo.org/snapshots/portage-latest.tar.xz
# tar xvf portage-latest.tar.xz -C /usr
# rm portage-latest.tar.xz

Thanks for reply. I will retry it manually.

Np. Good luck :D
Also you wont need to run emerge-webrsync after doing that, you can just emerge --sync as you would normally.

Yaay! It (kind of) works! Many thanks for fast reply - I was a bit sad about issue.

//Edit: Small fix :)


Shouldn't the first line be: wget distfiles.gentoo.org/snapshots/portage-latest.tar.bz2 instead of .xz?

P.S. Shouldn't the handbook be edited to reflect this?

Oups, mistake when I edited it before :)

Annnddd... nope... it should not.
Unpacking the portage snapshot is not cool anymore (apparently :lol:) and emerge-webrsync is the way of getting portage files, which is why the handbook has been changed.
It just bad luck that portage in stable is broken in regard to webrsyc on a fresh install atm so until 2.2.7 is stable and in the stage3's everyone will hit this problem.

Ok, bad luck. I thought it was a permanent change related one of those news items I read with eselect lately.
