I've been having serious problems with the emerge command. There have been other posts on this matter in the past few days, but no solutions mentioned have solved my problem. Basically what happens is that when I run an "emerge <package>" I get errors like this:

root@dizzogg doug # emerge gaim
Calculating dependencies \Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/emerge", line 1309, in ?
mydepgraph.create(mytype+" "+portage.root+" "+mykey,None,"--onlydeps" not in myopts)
File "/usr/sbin/emerge", line 400, in create
mydb=open(mydbkey,"r")
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/var/cache/edb/dep/dep-gaim-0.57.ebuild'
root@dizzogg doug #

How in the world do I get my portage working again? I never realized how dependent I am on it until now, cause I feel totally helpless. I have tried the Portage rescue, and it didn't work. My portage version is 1.8.19.

Thanks for any suggestions

Can you do an emerge --update system? Your Portage is out-of-date.

Also, you can try to deleting everything in /var/tmp/portage to clean up old compiles. Check your /etc/make.conf to make sure it looks OK.

As a last resort you can try un-packing the stage-1 tarball off the CD into a temp (/tmp would do)directory. Then, see if you can find emerge in /tmp/usr/bin/. Backup your existing /usr/bin/emerge and the copy the one you just un-packed into /usr/bin.

Good luck.

NONONO That updates your entire base system. If you want to update the Portage tree, you simply do:

Code:
emerge rsync


If you're trying to update to the latest version of Portage, then do:

Code:
emerge --update portage


They have decidedly different results...

EDIT: oops -- forgot the --update part for emerge --update portage...

Ahhhh....Thanks for the clarification!
:oops:

I did not realize that you could just emerge portage by itself. I assumed it was part of the base system.

Yeah, well, I just realized I screwed up, too. Should be:

Code:
emerge --update portage


or just

Code:
emerge -u portage


shame on me. :)
