    Emerge problems with Xorg


    Hi everyone. When I try to emerge gnome, or kde i get the same error as i do when i try to emerge xorg. it tells me

    Code:
    !!!ERROR: x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1 failed.
    !!!Function build, line 954 exitcode 2
    make world failed

    any ideas on how I can figure this out?? something in kernel? I have no clue.


    Thanks everyone in advance.

    what's the output of:
    Code:
    cat /etc/make.conf | grep USE
    "I am not an alcoholic, alcoholics go to meetings"

    please give more context. Usually we see this line along the lines starting with "!!!"
    Code:
    !!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.
    it means that the lines starting with "!!!" isn't of much help, but the (usually 3-4) lines just before those lines starting with "!!!" are telling the "real" error.

    well, it would probably make it easier if you included all the output that is error related (from make), rather than just the 3-4 lines above it, as they usually descrube the 'reason' for the build fail.

    Sorry guys. The cat /etc/make.confg | grep USE shows me absolutely nothing.
    and the errors before the !!! lines are

    Code:
    cllect 2: id returned 1 exit status
    make [4] ***[pswrap] Error 1
    make [4] leaving directory /var/tmp/portage/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1/work/xc/config/pswrap
    make[3] *** [../../config/pswrap/pswrap[ Error 2
    make [3] Leaving directory /var/tmp/portage/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1//work/xc/lib/dps
    make [2]***[includes] error2
    make [2] Leaving directory /var/tmp/portage/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1/work/xc/lib
    make [1]***[includes] error2
    make [1] Leaving directory /var/tmp/portage/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1/work/xc/
    make: *** [World} Error 2

    Looks like you typed a character too much, it's make.conf not make.confg.

    hmm... the error looks unfamiliar to me. You could try to run "emerge sync" (it will update the portage to make sure you got the latest versions) and then try emerge xorg again.

    Also, an 'emerge -puDv xorg-x11' would be nice.

    Here's the code from make.conf
    Code:
    CFLAGS = "-02"
    CHOST = "X86_64-pc-linux-gnu"
    CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
    MAKEOPTS="-j2"
    Gentoo mirrors ----- well there's  a bunch there
    I tried sycning then redoing it. what it does is it goes through all these folders and it says nothing to do here , moving on to the next one and then keeps going like that.

    i also tried the -puDv but i'm not sure what you wanted me to do with it

    I'm getting this error too.

    Did some Googling, found a suggestion in a German forum that you may need to install 'flex' (with 'emerge flex') first. Also my date wasn't properly set.

    Hope this helps.
