Installing Gentoo Kernels
I thought this would be the right thread to ask. Basically while installing gentoo I've gone as far as tryin to install the kernel. I'm following the handbook but the problem I've come across is that when i type
# USE="-doc symlink" emerge gentoo-sources
The reply I get is in red saying
!!! ARCH is not set... Are you missing the etc/make.profile symlink?
!!! Is the symlink correct? I your portrage tree complete?
As far as I'm concerned I've installed the protage from the snapshot folder and I haven't had any errors#.
By the way this is the first time I've installed any type of linux at all.
Have you messed at all with the /etc/make.profile symlink?
Mine has this:
alex@tux ~ $ ls -l /etc/make.profile lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 46 Aug 16 17:55 /etc/make.profile -> /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2005.1
