1 Hi list,
3 For a few weeks now I've been having trouble emerging certain packages: they
4 abort on checksum failure every time. Yet when I wget them myself from the
5 first mirror in the list they're fine. Eh?
7 The problem can't be the presence of a distfile that's been renamed
8 *_checksum_failure_* because those were still present during the successful
9 emerge. I can't think of any other possibility at the moment.
11 The ones I fell over last night were gdk-pixbuf, vala-common, apg and nss. I'm
12 building a new 32-bit system in a chroot for my mini LAN server. The first two
13 have been persistent for several weeks.
