If you wipe out /usr/portage, the /etc/portage/make.profile symlink becomes a dead link.

I additionally had to do:

rm /etc/portage/make.profile
ln -sf /var/git/meta-repo/kits/core-kit/profiles/funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/ /etc/portage/make.profile

I'm not sure if this is correct, as relevant documentation is lacking in https://github.com/funtoo/meta-repo/blob/master/README.rst.

Thanks. i didn't ask about repos.conf but about make.profile.

I read the README.rst page carefully and did what it says. Nevertheless, I ran into major troubles after removing /usr/portage.

First, no profile is defined anymore:

me@work# epro list

...

WARNING: No arch defined. Please set.
WARNING: No build defined. Please set.
WARNING: No flavor defined. Please set.

If i make /etc/portage/make.profile a link to /var/git/meta-repo/kits/core-kit/profiles/funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/ as suggested above, epro gets broken:

me@work# epro arch x86-64bit
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/epro", line 102, in <module>
    EgoModule.run_ego_module(action, econfig, args, VERSION)
  File "/usr/share/ego/python/ego/module.py", line 64, in run_ego_module
    ego_module(*args)
  File "/usr/share/ego/modules/profile.ego", line 299, in __call__
    super().__call__(*args)
  File "/usr/share/ego/python/ego/module.py", line 49, in __call__
    self.handle(**options)
  File "/usr/share/ego/modules/profile.ego", line 278, in handle
    handler(**options)
  File "/usr/share/ego/modules/profile.ego", line 198, in handle_single_profile_actions
    current_setting = list(self.tree.get_children(profile_type))[0]
IndexError: list index out of range

Second, tools like qsearch etc. do not work any more:

me@work# qsearch base64
search: open failed: /usr/portage: No such file or directory

 

Basically, this means that I cannot emerge anymore and my system is broken, for the first time that I'm using funtoo – and it's quite a couple of years!

oh your right I got that wrong... sorry but you should have a dir /etc/portage/make.profile with a file called parent

I belive make.profile was a file before the change.

here is mine..

change your subaarch to reflect your hardware.
