Hi all,

emerge -u binutils fails on my system with a fresh 2007.0 installation, the tree
is current as of today. The box is an AS800. Google gives only links to closed bugs
with binutils. I found one that "sanitized headers" are ok now, but if I did not
miss it, many archs said "stable", Alpha did not.

First, after install, building kernel modules failed, so I built a monolithic
kernel and that is booting and running fine now.

After booting, emerge -puD world failed in binutils with some reference to PAGE_SIZE.
Then I thought to update things like glibc and gcc first, but they want the new binutils.
And these won't build. See below. I am absolutely stuck. Can anybody point me to a solution?

thanks...

hi

this reference is pretty good for checking versions:
http://www.gentoo-portage.com/sys-devel/binutils

If nothing else works for you soon, I would give a shot at trying to install a different version of binutils, though I can't say just which one yet. To do this, you can edit either /etc/portage/package.mask or maybe /etc/portage/package.keywords I think. Either mask the one you tried using package.mask, or try some other ~alpha version listed there using package.keywords. Or some combination like that.

I have a reference here FYI for syntax of the mask file:
http://www.celebrazio.net/tech/unix/gentoo_maint.html

Good luck

Leo

I'm afraid that your problem is with the profile or/and with linux-headers. This kind of errors are much more easy and quick to fix if you report a bug in bugs.gentoo.org and attach there your emerge --info. I will give it a look there.

Thanks!
