    Problems with install (env-update)


    Code:
    #env-update
    !!! Invalid token (not "=") PORTAGE_TMPDIR
    !!! ParseError:  Invalid token (not '='):  //etc/make.conf:  line 7 in //etc/make.conf
    !!! Incorrect multiline literals can cause this.  Do not use them.
    What does this mean? Now when I

    Code:
    nano -w /mnt/gentoo/etc/make.conf
    It opens a blank file. Was that due to

    Code:
    chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
    ???

    nano -w /mnt/gentoo/etc/make.conf
    A blank file is correct as you are about to create it - that is all I can help you with at this point Iam not much further past you on my fourth attempt to install.
    Good luck!

    But I thought I already created it. It was there and I added quite a bit to it beofre it dissappeared. Even the example file is gone.

    Did you copy over your /etc/resolv.conf before chrooting?

    Maybe I am barking up the wrong tree but I think you can use emerge-webrsync
    If you are behind a firewall that blocks rsync traffic, you can use emerge-webrsync which will download and install a portage snapshot for you.
    This worked for me I had the same problem
