Subject: [gentoo-user] Portage Error
Date: Wed, 31 Jan 2007 21:57:08
Hello everybody!

This is my first post to the mailing list. So please forgive me if i am
doing something wrong...

I have a serious issue with portage because my hard disk (file system)
has been damaged. Now i am unable to detect wether the problem is
caused by portage or not.
However if i try to emerge net-wireless/ipw3945d i get the following error:

>>> Completed installing ipw3945d-1.7.22-r4
into /var/tmp/portage/net-wireless/ipw3945d-1.7.22-r4/image/ * QA Notice: Pre-stripped files found: * /var/tmp/portage/net-wireless/ipw3945d-1.7.22-r4/image/sbin/ipw3945d Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/emerge", line 5271, in ? retval = emerge_main() File "/usr/bin/emerge", line 5266, in emerge_main myopts, myaction, myfiles, spinner) File "/usr/bin/emerge", line 4733, in action_build retval = mergetask.merge(pkglist, favorites, mtimedb) File "/usr/bin/emerge", line 2980, in merge prev_mtimes=ldpath_mtimes) File "/usr/lib/portage/pym/", line 3674, in doebuild vartree=vartree, prev_mtimes=prev_mtimes) File "/usr/lib/portage/pym/", line 3882, in merge mydbapi=mydbapi, prev_mtimes=prev_mtimes) File "/usr/lib/portage/pym/", line 7725, in merge cleanup=cleanup, mydbapi=mydbapi, prev_mtimes=prev_mtimes) File "/usr/lib/portage/pym/", line 7135, in treewalk slot_matches = self.vartree.dbapi.match( File "/usr/lib/portage/pym/", line 5169, in match mymatch = [cpv for cpv in mymatch \ File "/usr/lib/portage/pym/", line 5262, in aux_get for k, v in izip(aux_keys, self._aux_get(mycpv, aux_keys)): File "/usr/lib/portage/pym/", line 5275, in _aux_get raise KeyError(mycpv) KeyError: 'net-wireless/ipw3945d-1.7.22-r4' And nothing has been merged. ANY help on this would be appreciated, as i am using my laptop quite often and wireless is a must have for me. I also started a thread in the gentoo forums where more information about my system and tries i have made to compensate the file system errors can be found. You may want to have a look at it here: Sadly no one could help me to resolve my issue until now. It would be great if you guys could. Thank you Patrick
