    Emerging Problems (Solved, I think)...


    Hi guys,
    My exams have finished so I decided to install Gentoo on an old machine I had lying around before I went ahead and installed on my main machine. Well the install went fine, but I am having troubles emerging samba. It seems that the dependancies for samba are available, but the samba package itself is not available. A snippet of the session is given below:

    Code:
    Mars ~ # emerge samba
    Calculating dependencies ...done!
    >>> emerge (1 of 1) net-fs/samba-3.0.10 to /
    >>> Downloading ftp://mirror.pacific.net.au/linux/Gentoo/distfiles/samba-3.0.10.tar.gz
    --18:31:11--  ftp://mirror.pacific.net.au/linux/Gentoo/distfiles/samba-3.0.10.tar.gz
               => `/usr/portage/distfiles/samba-3.0.10.tar.gz'

    emerge --search shows the existence of this package, but why can't it be found?

    If you need any more info, don't hesitate to ask.

    Ok guys an update:

    1. Samba was available on the package cd, so it emerged fine.

    But if I try and emerge something without the package cd, the 404 errors still appear. What am I doing wrong?



    Solved:::
    All I did was change from the Australian mirrors to some US mirrors in make.conf and emerge seemed to work fine after that.
