    Digests do not match


    I tried emerging kdebase, xchat, and KMuddy and I got this error

    !!! File is corrupt or incomplete. (Digests do not match)
    >>> our recorded digest: blahblahblahblahblahblah
    >>> your file's digest: bladybladybladybladyblady
    !!! File does not exist: /usr/portage/distfiles//packagename

    Anyone have a clue why this is happening?

    either the rsync mirror is borked or you have a corrupt tarball.... usually i delete /usr/portage/distfiles/<package>* and /usr/portage/<category>/<package>/files/digest*

    then run:
    Code:
    ebuild /usr/portage/<category>/<package>/package.ebuild digest
    then try the merge again
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

    when you run the command 'emerge sync' you synchronize a local database (ok, not a database, but a listing) to a remote one via the rsync protocol. basicaly if the server you are syncing with has a damaged list and collection of ebuilds, then it would be considered 'borked' (ie not working)
