Hi,

I booted from a livecd, downloaded and successfully bootstrapped stage2, and am running emerge system.

It can't find util-linux-2.12.tar.gz, and nothing has been installed, so I can't mount the cdrom, or use links2, or modify the mirrors list.

How can I get this file to download and install? I have a severe time limit, I'm leaving town tomorrow and NEED this installation to work.

If it would be better for me to use stage3, or simply download every package I could need (I have a separate laptop) and burn to CD or something like that, please let me know this too.

Thanks,
Greg

it turns out that mirrorselect didn't do a good job. After digging deeper, I discovered that adding random mirrors to make.conf worked as one of them had the package.

Now I'm currently compiling all that crap it downloaded, should work :)

And as a last resort, you can always google the file and download it to /usr/portage/distfiles. :D
