In Reply to: [gentoo-installer] emerge gives traceback during gentoo installation by Hendrik Boom
Hello,

I think that this is an error in ebuild. Try to sync portage tree and
emerge it again - or use another ebuild. Try tu update portage (emerge
portage) too.

If it does not helps, contact user maillist.
