Subject: PREFIX on Cygwin
Date: Tue, 13 Jun 2006 11:08:56 -0700
Hello All,

I was trying to get PREFIX portage to work on Cygwin on Windows (XP). I 
am facing some issues in the process. Has anyone tried this before with 
Prefix Portage? I found that there is a project specifically for this 
purpose at but that does not seem to 
support Prefix version of portage.

Any pointers in this regard would be appreciated.

Specifically today, I am facing a problem while emerging anything. I get 
an error saying that I am trying to emerge a package with a syntax error 
or corrupt ebuild file (which is definitely not the case). Also, emerge 
refuses to proceed with any dependency analysis whatsoever.
