Hi,

For me eselect profile list doesn't work.

The command emerge -av eselect gives following output. Hopefully someone can help?

Code:
(chroot) sysresccd / # emerge -av eselect
!!! Repository 'x-portage' is missing masters attribute in '/usr/portage/metadata/layout.conf'
!!! Set 'masters = gentoo' in this file for future compatibility


!!! /etc/portage/make.profile is not a symlink and will probably prevent most merges.
!!! It should point into a profile within /usr/portage/profiles/
!!! (You can safely ignore this message when syncing. It's harmless.)


!!! Your current profile is invalid. If you have just changed your profile
!!! configuration, you should revert back to the previous configuration.
!!! Allowed actions are limited to --help, --info, --search, --sync, and
!!! --version.

pdv,

Is /usr/portage populated ?
That's where you should have untarred the portage snapshot to.

I was just going to come back and say that /usr/portage is empty.

When I ran emerge
Code:

emerge-webrsync


I got a lot of messages like
Code:

Hi NeddySeagoon,

Thanks for your reply.

I can't also run mirrorselect because it gives me command not found.

Ok outside it but I guess that doesn't help

I finally got it.

All I had to do was run

Code:
emerge --sync


and wait patiently

pdv,

That works too :)
websync and fetching your own snapshot is faster than waiting for emerge --sync when you have an empty repository but it gets the same result.
