Difficulties whilst installing Gnome on Funtoo (VirtualBox)


Hello to all!

I recently installed Funtoo on VirtualBox (just for testing) and everything has gone extremely well so far to install Gnome. It is showing me the following error (/var/tmp/portage/gnome-base/gnome-shell-3.12.2/temp/build.log):

I installed NetWorkManager thinking that would solve the problem but it was not so.

The characteristics of the virtual machine are:

  • 4 CPU's.
  • 2 Gb RAM.
  • 16 Mb Video Card (3D support)

I installed the following kernel:
