New to Linux, problems already
Hi, let me just start off by saying I'm just getting into the world of Linux, so please be understanding if I don't quite understand everything off the bat :-D
On attempt number 4 of gentoo from the minimal cd (stage 3 install), I finally got it installed with internet access (previous installations ended up with not being able to boot or not having internet).
Problems have occured while trying to emerge links, emerge kde, or emerge gnome. A lot of the problem seems to involve x11(?)
The error that seems to happen a lot is as so (this one appears when trying to emerge links):
!!! ERROR: x11-libs/qt-3.3.6-r1 failed.
ebuild.sh, line 1539: Called dyn_compile
ebuild.sh, line 939: Called src_compile
qt-3.3.6-r1.ebuild, line 200: Called die
!!! (no error message)
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, and the call stack if relevant.
I'm running an Asus A7N8X-X with an AMD Athlon 2600+, using gentoo 2.6.16-r13, didn't use genkernel when reading through the handbook, tried setting up the kernel myself.
If any more information is needed, I'll see what I can do.
Thanks for any help!
