    Sorry buddy, I had lost track of this thread, did you ever get any further along on your install? Are you still having problems?

    My experience of using Gentoo is you need to get make.conf correct otherwise anything past the base system install will fail. I suggest you do a conventional handbook install using stage 3 tarball. That way you can check you understand the process and that the combination of USE flags work correctly for your system. If you want to you can go back after and build from a stage 1 tarball, but you don't need to. Once you have USE flags set you can rebuild the whole system anyway - and have it optimised.

    I think this approach will also make it easier for people to help you if you have problems with the conventional install.

    Good luck building your system ...

    I agree with Jonathan183. Using the stage 3 tarball will probably make things a little easier, also this is how most of us installed Gentoo and we'll be able to better understand what you are doing and/or what you should be doing when things go awry.

    all i need patience and i have it.
    just keep helping me .almost done

    i solved mak.conf problem

    when i say scripts/bootstrap.sh
    it gives
    Calculating dependencies
    All ebuilds that could satisfy ">=dev-lang/python-2.5" have been masked
    one of the following masked packages is required to complete your request
    -dev-lang/python-2.5.4-r3 (masked by: required EAPI 1,supported EAPI 0)
    -dev-lang/python-2.6.2-r1 (masked by :required EAPI 2,supported EAPI 0)
    -dev-lang/pyhton-2.6.2-r2 (masked by :required EAPI 2,supported EAPI 0)
    -dev-lang/pyhton-2.6.4 (masked by :required EAPI 2 ,supported EAPI 0)
    -dev-lang/pyhton-3.1.1-r1 (masked by:required EAPI 2,supported EAPI 0)
    -dev-lang/pyhton-2.6.3(masked by:required EAPI 2,support EAPI 0)

    For more information,see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or refer to the gentoo handbook
    (dependency required by:sys-apps/portage-2.1.6.13"


    how can i solve dependency problem ?

    Try updating python, it may help or create more problems.....in my experience this can be tricky to accomplish. I think you should try updating anything you can and then try updating python.
    Code:
    emerge --sync
    emerge -avuDN system
    emerge -avuDN world
    Code:
    python-updater -pv
    The above command will only pretend, it won't actually do anything. If everything looks okay, then remove the -p. You'll also want to run revdep once you get done.
    Code:
    revdep-rebuild -p
    Again, this only pretends, remove the -p to actually commit to the updates.

    Sounds like you have most things sorted - for the GUI problem as your regular user ... NOT AS ROOT try
    Code:
    echo "exec gnome-session" >> ~/.xinitrc
    startx
    Post errors you get for startx here if X does not start ...

    error for startx is "command not found"

    and there is no directory as X11 in etc is this sane?
