    cannot set profile

    I am really sorry, I wasted your time all along. I sudoed to root on the MacBook and looked at the command history. I was root when I changed the profile. I wonder how I can work in that business and be sometimes so confused.

    If you read the documentation on profiles, for example here, it doesn't say root privilege is required. I'm only trying to change my own profile, not system wide. I use sudo to emerge. For the rest I set up the two PCs exactly the same way, except for the stage download. Thanks again.

    But the permissions on the system where command epro flavor desktop works are exactly the same as the other system where it doesn't work: denis@euclide(opengl)$ ls -l /etc/portage/make.profile/parent -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1411 Nov 4 06:56 /etc/portage/make.profile/parent denis@maxwell(~)$ ls -ld /etc/portage/make.profile/parent -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1365 Nov 4 07:42 /etc/portage/make.profile/parent euclide is the PC where the command works, maxwell the one where it doesn't. Besides, I remember installing Funtoo a year ago or so and epro was also working with my own account. Thanks for the reply.

    I don't think I have to be root or use sudo. I didn't have to one my other PC (the MacBook). Thanks anyway for your reply.

    I just reinstalled Fundoo on two of my PCs, one being an old MacBook. The MacBook installation worked great, but I hit a problem on the other PC, an AMD 64 based system. I cannot set my profile with epro. Here's what I get: Would someone have a suggestion? Thanks in advance.

    black screen after logging into KDE

    Hello everybody, I followed this Funtoo document, http://www.funtoo.org/KDE_Plasma_5, that describes how to install KDE Plasma. I managed to get the login screen, but after logging in the screen stays black. I only see a big arrow cursor for the mouse. I couldn't install kde-apps-meta because there was a slot conflict. I only installed two of the meta packages: kdebase-runtime-meta kdecore-meta Is there other meta packages I should install to get a working desktop? Thanks in advance.

    building Firefox fails at configure step

    I finally reinstalled from scratch. Hopefully I'll be good for a couple of years without running in the same kind of problems. Thanks again for your help.

    building Firefox fails at configure step

    I'm sorry I don't really understand your answer. Is there a way to reinitialize Portage to a sane state?

    building Firefox fails at configure step

    I use KDE but i may have pulled in packages from other desktops inadvertantly. Here's the output of the commands you asked:

    building Firefox fails at configure step

    Thanks a lot for the help. I use Linux at work and I use Gentoo/Funtoo at home, but unfortunately I don't know the intricacies of Portage well enough. The first emerge command fails with multiple conflicts:

    building Firefox fails at configure step

    I tried to use the uploader to upload build.log but if fails with the error "You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file". I pasted the content of the file at the end. But first here's the output of emerge --info '=www-client/firefox-47.0.1::gentoo': And here's the content of build.log:
  14. Hi all, I've not been able to build Firefox since version 42; the current version in Portage is 47. It fails with the same error every time: failed to load site script /usr/local/share/config.site. This file exists and is readable. Has anybody encountered this problem? Thanks in advance.
