<div>Thanks, and thanks to John Myers.</div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<div>emerge sync</div>
<div>was the solution.</div>
<div>It turns out I had not sync'd since the initial instal of 2004.3 many months ago. It took about 2 hours over ADSL.</div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<div>&gt;I migrated from 2004.3 a few months ago using the automated upgrade and I had no problems that I remember.<br>&nbsp;</div>
<div>gentoo headers installed fine after the sync, however&nbsp;the&nbsp;upgrade&nbsp;crashed later on.</div>
<div>I'll post it to gentoo-users if googling doesn't help.</div>
<div>Sorry for spamming this list with a portage incompetence issue.</div>
