I just did an emerge rsync (10:30 pm cst 9/7/2002) and now my /etc/make.profile is gone. I keep rsyncing to see if I can hit an rsync server with a slightly different game, in hopes to get /etc/make.profile back. So as it stands, I can't emerge anything, but I can do an emerge rsync. Would someone either please post a working /etc/make.profile or please fix the portage tree :)

Sorry to go postal so fast! I just figured out that there was a structure change in the profiles directory. However, you can see how quickly this can cause alarm as an error. Correct me if I'm wrong, but has default-x86-2.0 been moved to 1.4 to be aligned with the gentoo releases? Wish it would have said something about this (yes, I know it says what it's deleting at first, and I saw it, but I figured it would just put something newer in its place)

Actually, /etc/make.profile is just a symbolic link to /usr/portage/profiles/[something]. You can fix it yourself, very easily.

If you're using gcc-2.95.3:
Code:
ln -sf /usr/portage/profiles/default-1.0 /etc/make.profile

And for gcc-3.2:
Code:
ln -sf /usr/portage/profiles/default-x86-1.4 /etc/make.profile


(Edited to correct typos.)

Ops, I was late. Good you already solved it...

This change was announced earlier today: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=14419
But I agree with you, there should be some kind of warning about this. I think I'll make this thread sticky for a while.

Excuse me, but don't you mean GCC-3.2? The 2.0 profile installed GCC-3.2, have you decided to wait before going for 3.2?

Just a note that if you change the link to 1.4 from 1.0 or 1.2 you will be changed over to gcc-3.2 the next time you "emerge -u world". I've no had problems except with "arts" and that wasnt caused by aggressive flags but to ccache. Its only about 6hrs emerge ( gcc) on a P200. :)
