In Reply to: Re: [gentoo-alpha] emerge gentoo-sources fails by Brian Parkhurst
1 A couple weeks ago, I reported that emerge gentoo-sources was failing.
2 It magically worked once, so I quit yapping.
4 This was in the context of a fresh install, from the Gentoo CD boot.
5 The fix seems to be enabling a swap device, which I don't think is in
6 the instructions.
8 It was a fluke that I came to this conclusion, but it works.
9 I switched to a second PWS500 (almost identical) to eliminate crazy
10 hardware as a possibility.
11 I didn't think portage/emerge was such a hog that 256MB RAM was too
12 little. BTW, my first machine had 384MB.
14 I'm not going to formally report this as a bug, but I think something is
15 wrong. Maybe it only affects weakling Alphas like mine?
16 I don't follow the alternative architectures forum. Maybe if someone
17 shows up there with this problem, you can suggest swapon.
19 Adios, DW
