It's up and running, folks!
* thorsten is jumping around happily and waving at everyone *
Unfortunately I got no time to address the remaining minor annoyances
today, which include: supervise coughing because of missing directories,
cluttering terminals with that message and thus locking them down with
'respawning too fast' messages (which went away after I created the dir
by hand); network/pcmcia stuff running only after I start them a
second time 'by hand'; and some other things.
I cd'ed into /usr/portage, running 'emerge rsync'. Then I decided to
check out the latest version of portage, so I typed
Calculating dependencies.!!! Name error in 1.7e2
!!! Error: /usr/portage/app-games/bzflag is not a valid portage
!!! Error: circular dependencies
1.7e2 does not seem to match portage's naming scheme. The header of
portage.py reads 'Version 1.0 7/31/2000'. Deleting the bzflag subdir
removes the name error, but the circular dependencies remain. It's unclear
to me why bzflag is addressed here anyway.
It's there! It's running! And most important: internet access is working.
I am writing this using an ssh login from gentoo.
With more time at hand, I will happily address errors myself, and not just
bother you with them - which, after all, is the way I prefer to do
