Subject: Glibc pooched. Borked system.
Date: Wed, 7 Dec 2005 21:33:14 -0800
Hello all,

First, for reference, I have been using Gentoo for many years, on many 
different systems and types of hardware.

Having purchased a new Powermac G5, I decided to use my old G4 as my web and 
mail server, and keep the old server as a dedicated firewall. So: Install 
went just fine, booted up first time, all is well. Then I do an 'emerge -u 
world' to get up to date. This is where the troubles started...

At first, the glibc emerge broke. I found this bug, which certainly looked 
relevant: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=78951

After trying the tip in post #11 glibc built, but bailed out whilst moving 
files from the build directory to the live filesystem. Now everything 
segfaults, from 'ls' to python (both 2.3 and 2.4). 

So I guess I am resigned to a reinstall, though this really bugs me after the 
time invested so far. I guess I have a few questions:

1. Is there any way around this? Are there binary packages of glibc for ppc I 
could use to get around a reinstall? (wget still seems to work ;))

2. Is this problem a sign of things to come? Is gentoo on ppc not stable 
enough to use as a server? Any advice from experts on this?

I am not trying to flame, place blame, or anything else. I am just looking for 
comments from users experienced with Gentoo on PPC.

Thanks,
-d
