Hi.
I am rather new to gentoo and have been using it for some days without major problems i couldn't solve myself or through google. However, i have just found one problem i simply cannot find the answer to.

I am running windows 7 and inside a virtualbox from that, i am running gentoo. So in order to get gfx drivers and the like, i am trying to install: app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions. But it won't emerge properly. I have the build.log but i am not sure how to upload it to you guys, since gentoo is running in a console window at the moment.

I can extract the file through ssh so if anyone wants me to upload it somewhere, i can do that?

help would really be appreciated. And please keep in mind, i am rather new, so please write what commands to use, since i don't know all the commands in gentoo :-)


EDIT: here is the build.log http://pastebin.com/6qJsXGMG

If you're using Distcc ... disable it to compile VirtualBox guest addition.

It is used to distribute compilation accross several machines.

If you don't know it, you don't use it :D

Otherwise, I duno, no problem on my side as soon as distcc is disabled.

Let us know.

Did you ever find a solution? I am getting the exact same error. I don't have distcc installed.
