    Error when updating SBCL...


    Can someone help me fix this error? I'm using version 0.9.4 and the error started when trying to update to version 0.9.5. I masked that version hoping the next would install without a problem. Well, now 0.9.6 is out and it still won't update and gives me the same message....

    Error message:
    Code:
    This version of SBCL only works correctly with the NPTL threading library. Please use a newer glibc, use an older SBCL, or stop using LD_ASSUME_KERNEL
    How would I fix this? How would I stop using LD_ASSUME_KERNEL? This seems like the best/easiest solution as I'd like to continue updating SBCL (out of fear that a newer version may eventually be another package's dependency) and as there are no newer versions of glibc out currently. I'm using the development branch and rarely run into problems I can't fix (usually, masking a package works).

    Thanks in advance for any and all help

    in /etc/make.conf set the "nptl nptlonly" USE flags (add them to what is allready there) then run:

    Code:
    emerge -avuDN world
    It will update and rebuild your system including support for NPTL. This will take some time but when it's done your error will be gone!

    :)
