Subject: [gentoo-alt] Portage doesn't have permissions on /var/log/portage
Date: Wed, 02 May 2007 21:19:43
Successfully bootstrapping I did a emerge --sync and it said I needed
to update portage.
I did this and then ran emerge -e world as posted in

It gave errors on rsync, zlib and others.
the build log is attached.

I fixed this by:
sudo mkdir /var/log/portage
sudo chmod 0755 /var/log/portage
sudo chown uid:gid /var/log/portage

and it worked.
I don't think it is a good idea to have portage dump its log in there.
Shoudln't they go in $EPREFIX/var/log/portage?
