Hi all.

Once a few weeks i update my portage tree, a few day's ago i ran into this problem after a emerge --sync

Code:
Performing Global Updates: /usr/portage/profiles/updates/2Q-2006
(Could take a couple of minutes if you have a lot of binary packages.)
  .='update pass'  *='binary update'  @='/var/db move'

    os.rename(self.name, self._real_name)
OSError: [Errno 16] Device or resource busy


Since then i always get the same output as pasted above when i do the emerge command, no mather what comes afther emerge (emerge --sync or emerge xmms ..). I read on this site (http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=gentoo-user&m=115775005311326&w=2) that remouving the portage tree would help, then emerge-webrsync and then a normal sync but also with the emerge-webrsync i get this error:

 *** Completed websync, please now perform a normal rsync if possible.

Realy don't know what to do. Google delivered nothing, searching the gentoo forums also nothing and on #gentoo (freenode) i don't get any reply.

Anyone has a suggestion?

Thanks in advanced !

Download portage-2.1.1.tar.bz2 and the patch for 2.1.1-r1 from http://distfiles.gentoo.org/distfiles/ into a working directory

unpack both portage and the patch into the working directory

Code:
tar xvjf portage-2.1.1.tar.bz2

Code:
bzip2 -d portage-2.1.1-r1.patch.bz2


change directories into the portage folder under the working directory

Code:
cd portage


patch portage 2.1.1

Code:
patch -p0 < /PATH/TO/PATCH


replace bash and python files with newer versions

Code:
cp -R pym bin /usr/lib/portage/


That should do it. This problem seems to only affect version 2.1.1 so if you want to be safe I would upgrade to 2.1.1-r1. If you are still having problems try downloading the latest portage snapshot from http://distfiles.gentoo.org/snapshots/ and unpacking it:

Code:
 tar xvjf portage-latest.tar.bz2 -C /usr


Don't forget to emerge --sync when all is said and done.

Well, thank you, it worked here too. Though I did it in a simpler way:
  1. removed the offending updates in /usr/portage/profiles/updates so that emerge works
  2. unmasked and emerge-d portage-2.1.1-r1
    Code:
    echo "=sys-apps/portage-2.1.1-r1" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords/portage-2.1.1-r1
    emerge portage

  3. then emerge --sync
and everything is fine now. (The updates are downloaded again, so that removing them in the first place is OK)

Though, it is annoying when running stable...
