I've just installed Gentoo. I'm trying to install xfce dektop
Code:
emerge --ask xfce-base/xfce4-meta xfce-extra/xfce4-notifyd
....
 * IMPORTANT: 2 config files in '/etc/portage' need updating.
 * See the CONFIGURATION FILES and CONFIGURATION FILES UPDATE TOOLS
 * sections of the emerge man page to learn how to update config files.

I've read emerge man page. Is it a healthy way to solve this problem by setting CONFIG_PROTECT="-*" in make.conf? I suppose it's like breaking Gentoo's immun system, isn't it? What should I do?

Quote:
Edit /etc/dispatch-conf.conf first and create the directory referenced by the archive-dir variable


How can I do?

hcyildiran, I use etc-update instead of dispatch-conf.

etc-update shows the difference between original file and update file. After that, you can decide what to do:
Code:
1) Replace original with update
2) Delete update, keeping original as is
3) Interactively merge original with update
4) Show differences again

I solved the problem by etc-update-I hope I made true decision-. And was continuing:to install:
Code:
* Fetch failed for 'sys-devel/autoconf-archive-2018.03.13', Log file:
 *  '/var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/autoconf-archive-2018.03.13/temp/build.log'

what is the solution?

Hello hcyildiran,

With that little information its kinda hard to see where could be the issue. Please post your emerge --info and the build log (you can get the commands when emerge fails) so we can see where's the issue.
