    Emerged tcsh, but /bin/tcsh does not exist


    I'm trying to emerge openoffice and I saw that it emerged tcsh as one of its dependencies, however the building of openoffice failed with,
    Code:
    dmake: Error -- /bin/tcsh: No such file or directory
    The compile of tcsh seemed to go without a hitch, so do I need to move a file to /bin or provide a symlink or something?? What should I do to rectify this??

    Many thanks.

    I'd try

    Code:
    emerge tcsh
    again, just for good measure. I just emerged it to see what the problem might have been, and /bin/tcsh existed and ran just fine for me. However it could always be your optimizations. Make sure you don't use anything like -O9... :P

    I'm suspicious..... Checking through a few logs it looks like a cron job I set up to emerge --sync and emerge --depclean might have acted before the openoffice install was complete and removed the openoffice dependencies. That implies that the openoffice installation takes over 6 hours on a relatively fast machine (2.66GHz P4) -- is this possible??

    I'll remove the executable bit from the cron jobs and set the installation going overnight to see if that helps.

    Thanks for the reply Dachnaz.

    Could it have possibly been installed somewhere else other than in /bin?

    Probably installed to /usr/bin.
    Try doing:
    Code:
    emerge gentoolkit
    equery files tcsh

    Thanks for the fast responses guys.

    The equery commands couldn't find any instances of tcsh so I guess the scheduled emerge --depclean got rid of it as I thought I've now emerged tcsh and confirmed it exists at /bin/tcsh, so I've started the compilation of openoffice again. I've also removed the executable bit from the cron job so it won't interupt again!!

    Is it really gonna take >6hours??

    Nope. Try

    Code:
    emerge openoffice-bin
    Yes, the binaries make everything bigger and slower when you start the program up. But it won't take quite as long to install. This will take about five minutes, if that. I will occasionally use binaries when I'm in a hurry (like the first time I installed OpenOffice, I had to get a paper done in one hour).

    compiling OO.o can take upwards of 22+ hrs.. it's kinda like KDE/GNOME in that respect.. have fun waiting..

    I decided to ctrl-c out of the installation (I hope that's OK to do) and postpone it to the weekend when I can leave my computer connected to a network for 22+ hours, and when I don't need it to be doing other things!!

    Cheers guys.
