    ^ file:///etc/xml/catalog:1: error: Start tag expected


    Trying to emerge gnome in Gentoo Linux, but I can't get it installed.

    Code:
    file&#58;///etc/xml/catalog&#58;1&#58; error&#58; Document is empty 
    
    ^ 
    file&#58;///etc/xml/catalog&#58;1&#58; error&#58; Start tag expected, '<' not found 
    
    ^.
    there it hangs. no more response
    Could anyone please help? I tried fixed packages. emerge -u world........... no help at all

    KDE works just OK.

    any idea?

    where is the error log for emerging gnome?

    You're using GRP right? It seems like it's hanging, but give it some time. Mine did the exact same thing, same with a couple other packages like evolution.

    Hmm. I guess try a regular emerge gnome, or burn the latest cd 2 of whatever cd you're using.

    Try making /etc/xml/catalog a valid XML file, by putting this into it:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE catalog PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD Entity Resolution XML Catalog V1.0//EN" "http&#58;//www.oasis-open.org/committees/entity/release/1.0/catalog.dtd">

    Thanks Dolda, Problem solved!

    delete etc/xml, emerge docbook-xml-dtd then emerge scrollkeeper

    finally emerge -k gnome

    all done!
