    emerge xorg-x11 not working


    i did
    Code:
    emerge xorg-x11
    and it gave me this:
    make:cannot stat libGL.so.1.2 no such file/dir
    someone in #gentoo sent me here: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=103404 but i dont think its the same, as the error messages are differant.
    i have a nvidia geforce 6600GT

    Try just "emerge x11" and that should work.

    did you try just
    Code:
    emerge xorg
    too see if that gave you anything?

    Post your /etc/make.conf and the output of emerge -pv xorg-x11. What kernel version are you running?

    Another thing, do you use x86 or ~x86 branch?

    sounds like a problem with portage to me, since portage normally solves ALL dependancies. you may also have configured your kernel incorrectly. it's more likely to be portage, try redownloading portage (follow the stage 1 instructions and it'll tell you).
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    Yeh, talking about dependencies, I belive libGL should come with mesagl or the nvidia-drivers?

    i have nvidia drivers but i didn't use them when i first booted gentoo. i just used the vga driver, then emerged nvidia afterwards (with lots of problems). if you are trying to use nvidia, try using vga first. if you are using vga then you are definately having a problem with portage.

    The MesaGL libraries is simply a opengl implementation using software rendering, not hardware acceleration... So if he's using VGA, he'll probably use MesaGL for 3d.

    BTW, do an "emerge -S mesa|less" to look for packages mentioning mesa, if you find a mesagl package, emerge it and then try remerge xorg-x11.
