Might be a good place to start looking!

Gentoo Team:

	So there I am, at code listing 18, typing in cd /usr/portage and
then scripts/ and the results are here:

!!! Invalid token (not "=") used
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/emerge", line 308, in ?
    if not portage.settings.has_key?("MAINTAINER")
  File "/usr/lib/python2.0/site-packages/", line 496, in has_key
    if x.has_key(mykey)
AttributeError: 'None' object has no attribute 'has_key'

I get the same "'None' object has no attribute 'has_key'" error about 9 or
10 times (it's hard to tell on my crappy monitor). Is this a known issue?
Can it be fixed? I did everything as specified on the sheet
( to the letter and nothing else
errored out. Do you guys know what's going wrong?

P.S. System specs: Athlon 1.4GHz, 512MB RAM, 61.5GB IBM IDE HDD, ATI
Radeon 32MB video card, ESS Allegro sound card, US keyboard (Dell),
3button (PS/2) from Kensington and a crappy 15" monitor from Zenith
(1024x768 max res.)

I would send you a dmesg, but the shell says 'bash: dmesg: command not
found'. Oh well.
