Hi all,

I'm just trying to use one of my gentoo machine that I haven't used for a couple of month and when I try to run both emerge SOMETHING or fixpackages I get this error:
Code:
Performing Global Updates: /usr/portage/profiles/updates/4Q-2006
(Could take a couple of minutes if you have a lot of binary packages.)
  .='update pass'  *='binary update'  @='/var/db move'
  s='/var/db SLOT move' S='binary SLOT move' p='update /etc/portage/package.*'
..........
pTraceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/fixpackages", line 16, in ?
    portage.global_updates(mysettings, mytrees, mtimedb["updates"])
  File "/usr/lib/portage/pym/portage.py", line 6656, in global_updates
    myupd)
  File "/usr/lib/portage/pym/portage_update.py", line 198, in update_config_files
    write_atomic(updating_file, "".join(file_contents[x]))
  File "/usr/lib/portage/pym/portage_util.py", line 728, in write_atomic
    f.close()
  File "/usr/lib/portage/pym/portage_util.py", line 696, in close
    os.rename(self.name, self._real_name)
OSError: [Errno 16] Device or resource busy


How can I solve this or do you know some trick to prevent the fixpackages step?

Thanks in advance

You could try moving your packages or removeing them. Then see what happens.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads, please see this sticky topic: portage fails - errno 16 Device or resource busy.
