    Gentoo Kernel Installation Difficulties- Proxy Troubles [Solved]

    I am in the process of installing the gentoo Kernel (gentoo-sources).

    When I typed in: emerge gentoo-sources I received the followng error:
    Error parsing proxy URL http://proxy.server.comort: Bad port number.

    When I search for gentoo-sources using emerge -s gentoo-sources I am able to see it. I was wondering what I need to do. Thanks!

    looks like you have a wierd proxy setting in make.conf

    open up /etc/make.conf and look for the line that says somthing about a PROXY, put a # in front of it, save the file and try the emerge again.

    I don't have a PROXY line, should I have one?

    This problem was fixed by typing unset http_proxy

    Thanks for this post

    I'm installing Gentoo for the first time.

    I had the same problem, but unset http_proxy solved it.
