Hi.

You need to pay more attention to the documentation. You need to do
Code:
# emerge -av gentoo-sources

In case you didn't notice, it's gentoo-sources, not gentoo-source. When you have doubts about a package, you can search for it with emerge -s <package-name>.

Just to add one thing to the good advice from jmbsvicetto, you should not put USE flags on the command line. You can get the same results by:
Code:
echo "sys-kernel/gentoo-sources -doc symlink" >> /etc/portage/package.use

And next time you update gentoo-sources, you'll still have those USE flags set just for the kernel without having to remember to put them on the command line again.
