  1. Is AMD Ryzen CPU extremely new? If so, it could take a while for sys-apps-hwids to be updated for the backward engineering. If no distro of Linux works, that's likely the reason. There could be other new hardware in a new computer that requires Linux drivers not yet available. Or maybe it's something else.
  2. Same guy that made synth: Verrrieeee-eeenterrresting. I used ports directly in FreeBSD and the control on all the compiler options was great except that I didn't know what I was doing, with the compiler options or whatever. I have a new appreciation for inter-package configuration parameters. Never actually got to using synth. That was the next planned step. My old tower sounds like half a jet engine, which does not help me figure out how to configure FreeBSD. However, that OP link sorta answers my question on why Gentoo/Funtoo (but not Ubuntu) has a limited selection of old python packag

  4. I appreciate the advice. I will continue to experiment. Doing the emerge @preserved-rebuild at that point was a variation. I don't know order like I know idiot instructions. I will experiment with -K, revdep-rebuild (I forgot about that one), and giving SSH with privileged access to box to figure things out is not something I understand, but maybe I will stumble onto what it means. I asked a very narrow question, and perhaps you already know the question is irrelevant. I don't understand why it's irrelevant. Both of my log files start with: This file contains any messages produced b
  5. Hello, I am trying to do the 'System resurrection'. I can chroot and do 'quickpkg --include-config y @system'. I exit the chroot, copy over the cache, and try to emerge -k to get a working toolchain, which is why I can't update my system. This command did not fix the compiler functionality: emerge -avk1 @system So I tried piecemeal with gcc, binutils, and glibc. I ran 'emerge -avk1 gcc' and got good results until end of output: Locke ~ # emerge -avk1 gcc These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies... done! [binary R ] sys-dev
  6. Tested what? You never posted your custom script.
  7. *** Solved: Try a Fresh Installation. *** This thread installment documents my failed attempt to 'resurrect' my system with chroot and quickpkg. I'll condense it. I got the latest stage 3 tarball (stage3-intel64-sandybridge-funtoo-current-2018-01-31.tar.xz, 349981588 bytes) and untarred it using the -p option (tar xpvf <tarfile> -C <dir>). Little did I know that the tarball does not include the /var/git subdirectory tree,which may or may not be relevant. Using System Rescue CD x86-4.9.1, released 2017-1-1. It starts with the /bin/zsh not the /bin/bash shell. The CD does not s
  8. I can only guess you need to push your configuration changes into your current environment. The manpage for ego-profile does not show action update, but it is seen via running 'ego profile -h'. You could also run 'epro -h'. Sometimes it is useful to 'source /etc/profile' and then 'env-update'. Maybe you should back up (undo your changes with .xinitrc) and try to 'push' your configuration setting through, or just reboot and hope nothing is foobar about rebooting. If you don't boot up with X-windows, I doubt you will have a problem with that, but I don't actually know. Good luck.
  9. bcowan, I'm preparing to try palica's solution. It looks to be a concise and updated version of the System resurrection page. Maybe something from the output in the attached text file will jump out at you before I take the plunge. I waited to update because I wanted to get a project done not struggle with admin work. This is the price I pay. It may be a good investment because I intend to set up a practice server on an old vertical box, if it still works. That's the start of phase two of my project. When I do figure out how to use technology for my specific purposes, it ain't figured quickly.

  11. bcowan, you and palica are quite knowledgable. I will carefully study the points you suggested. Thanks. I wondered if I could delete builds in /usr/portage/sys-devel, that apparently are just ignored (renamed the build files to see). Locke portage # find / -name gcc\*5.4\* /usr/portage/sys-devel/gcc/gcc-5.4.0.ebuild /usr/portage/distfiles/gcc-5.4.0-patches-1.3.tar.bz2 /usr/portage/distfiles/gcc-5.4.0.tar.bz2 /usr/portage/metadata/md5-cache/sys-devel/gcc-5.4.0 /usr/share/gcc-data/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/5.4.0/gcc-5.4.0 /usr/bin/gcc-5.4.0 /var/db/pkg/sys-devel/gcc-5.4.0 /va
  12. Maybe I should reformulate my question: What is the difference between quickpkg and emerge --buildpkgonly? Neither do I understand the difference between install -d /mnt/rescue and mkdir /mnt/rescue except that install could set permissions which makes it better idiomatically for installation purposes. ---------------------------------- The System resurrection page currently reads: In the following example capture everything installed within the "source environment" that is related sys-devel/gcc (4.4.5 is present on the system) is captured in a single archive named gcc-4.4.5.tbz2 located in
  13. bcowan, there was nothing inappropriate about your previous reply, and you are absolutely right: my compiler links are broken, though I lack the technical knowledge to have put it that way. I rebooted since yesterday, and so I suspect some of the functionality I had only in memory or where ever from the overwritten installation is gone. I can't successfully do: emerge -1 gcc, so I can't reinstall the toolchain. Looks like system resurrection as kindly suggested by palica or failing that reinstall are my final options. I don't know what magic incantation Oleg can suggest. I don't think the outp
  14. Oleg, the output you suggested: Locke etc # binutils-config -l [1] x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-2.29.1 Locke etc # palica, I appreciate constructive advice but not trolling, and will filter for the gold accordingly. I choose what I do on my box and in my life, or do you take responsibility for my success? I saw that a newbie recommended something that at least in part I can't do based on pesky facts and reality: As I explained, I don't have a gcc module with eselect ('gcc' is alphabetically between 'fontconfig' and 'java-vm', which is why I asked if the advice from bcowan that I
