emerge -b
.
My friend want's gentoo on his system so i decided to do an all binary install.
first i extracted the stage3 tarball, and then I just copied all of the precompiled packages into the /usr/portage/package directory.

most of the packages install without a hitch, but when i trie to emerge -K gnome

i get this error on some of the packages

i've found a way to fix this problem from this link:
http://lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail/sm-discuss/2002-July/000130.html

basically, for gentoo--
1) unmerge docbook-xml-dtd, docbook-xsl-stylesheets, scrollkeeper, and yelp (if yelp is installed) [use "emerge -C" option]

2) rm -rf /etc/xml

3) then redo the emerges for docbook-xml-dtd, docbook-xsl-stylesheets, scrollkeeper, and yelp (if you uninstalled it)

that's it-- when you "ls -l /etc/xml" you should see that the catalog file is no longer empty!

tried the above suggestion. no help. scrollkeeper emerge fails still for docbook-dtd412.xml
here is the error output from the scrollkeeper emerge

Code:
Couldn't find the DocBook XML V4.1.2 DTD.  Please make sure that you have the docbook-dtd412-xml package installed. If it is installed, the package probably did not register the DTD in the catalog properly. Consult http://scrollkeeper.sourceforge.net/docbook.shtml for more information.
 
configure: error: DocBook XML V4.1.2 DTD not present in /etc/xml/catalog. Make sure docbook-dtd412-xml is installed and registers DTD in catalog.
 
!!! ERROR: app-text/scrollkeeper-0.3.11-r1 failed.
!!! Function econf, Line 320, Exitcode 1
!!! econf failed


emerge -s docbook does not show such a package. i did install every/any docbook *xml type package. also no help :/ the search continues! thanks for the tip.

i think i got scrollkeeper fixed now.
grab the following file from http://scrollkeeper.sourceforge.net

http://scrollkeeper.sourceforge.net/data/docbookx412.tgz

delete /etc/xml/catalog

untar docbookx412.tgz and cd to its directory.

do a make install

emerge scrollkeeper

the emerge of scrollkeeper now works fine. :)

the catalog file is now no longer 0 bytes ! it took some time to rebuild the scrollkeeper database. so have some patience.

Thankfully this works out for me, thanks everyone.

And I'd just like to point something out.

While trying to look for a fix to these Gnome compiling/installing problems I've seen a lot of people biteing on the Gentoo Developers. Theres people are trying to help you out, stop ragging on them; so theres a few mistakes with the packages, look around people are always willing to help you out as long as you show them the right respect.

The Gentoo developers don't get paid or anything this is a hobbie for them, just relax for a day or two, everythings getting sorted out.
