Gentoo as OpenVZ
Well, Ive installed OpenVZ on this box.
I installed Gentoo in OpenVZ
It works ^^
Now, I want to install Portage..
So I download the portage packages on the host system.
I unpack it in the /vz/portage folder
I link the folder to the portage tree of the gentoo systemCode:
mount -o bind /vz/portage /var/lib/vz/private/1/usr/portage
- Mount -> the mount command
- -o bind -> Bind the folder to the other
- /vz/portage -> The folder were I extracted the Portage to
- /var/lib/vz/private/1 -> root (/) of Virtual PC 1
- usr/portage -> the location of the portage Tree
Well, When I go to Gentoo en enter Emerge I get:
--- 'profiles/arch.list' is empty or not available. Empty portage tree?
--- 'profiles/updates' is empty or not available. Empty portage tree?
!!! ARCH is not set... Are you missing the '/etc/make.profile' symlink?
!!! Is the symlink correct? Is your portage tree complete?
also known as nothing..
So ok thats really weird, I did mount the folder so why is that?
That second part is a error that I did google bit also wasnt able to fix since I need to have a portage tree..
Does anyone know what I did wrong?
Were I went wrong?
And why that is wrong??

Try running "emerge --sync" to generate a portage tree.
