    emerging kdebase


    So I go to emerge kdebase so I can have my nice graphical environment, and I hit a snag. I was doing fine, and then my internet went out in the middle of the installation, so when it came back up, I started emerging again. But now I get this error.
    Code:
    <NAME CHANGED TO PROTECT MY INNOCENCE># emerge kdebase

    Try removing the kde files in /usr/portage/distfiles and then do a:

    $ emerge --fetchonly kde
    $ emerge kde

    That way losing internet connection won't bork you compiling. But I'm not sure it'll solve your problem. You might want to remove the packages installed before your error occured. Just a thought, I'm not sure...

    It should be ok to remove all of them, but then you'd need to download them again if you are to recompile them. Other than that there shouldn't be any problem.

    Ok, I got it now. I tried re-emerging libtool, which still didn't work. But after some heavy googling, I found a flag to attach (--oneshot).

    So, if your installation is interrupted, and you get this error, you have to
    Code:
    emerge --oneshot libtool
    [/code]

    just do:
    Code:
    emerge libtool
    I had the same problem before. Don't worry about the --oneshot, I don't get why people add that anyways, since I figure you WANT libtool in the world profile...
