Hello there,
I am a bit surprise since I always have installed gentoo without problem for more than 15 years!

Now, when I start a usb stick (with gentoo 64bit minimal or live), when I hit the chroot step, I got this error:

Code:

chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash

bash: eval: line 24: syntax error near unexpected token `newline`
bash: eval: line 24: `Usage: lesspipe <file>`


Reading around I have seen that this error coould be caused by a wrong image (not in my case) or
the problem are the < and >

But I really I don't know how to figure it out!
Someone knows this problem?

Thanks

Code:
bash: eval: line 24: syntax error near unexpected token `newline`
bash: eva;: line 24: `Usage: lesspipe <file>`

DevOne ... that looks to me like a typo in the bashrc, bash_completion, or env, 'eva;' rather than 'eval'.

DevOne ... I see. Ok, well try the following:

Code:
# env -i chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash -l

... that would at least rule out something in the env of the bootdisk causing it. You could also pass '--noprofile' to bash (which would cause it to not process startup files), but that will cause the shell to have little in the way of an env (but would provide a clue as to the cause).

DevOne ... well, those were suggested simply to try and get a handle on the problem. I'm surprised '--noprofile' provided the same behaviour as that would suggest its not the bashrc. Anyhow, you should probably skip trying to solve the problem and use sysresccd.

DevOne ... yeah, not something I've seen myself (though its been a long time since I used the minimal CD), I haven't seen another report of someone with similar issues either.

Ok,
anyway I fixed it using sysrescue!

Just to be sure that if someone has the same problem, can read this.

Bye
