genker fails to create symbolic link

Question

The error could be caused by a symlink/file name collision.

/usr/share/genkernel/gen_func.sh

print_info 5 "  Make new symlink(s) (from ${BOOTDIR}):"
		print_info 5 "    ${symlinkName} -> ${currDestImage}"
		pushd ${BOOTDIR} >/dev/null
		ln -s "${currDestImage}" "${symlinkName}" || 
gen_die "Could not create the ${symlinkName} symlink!"

Genkernel should either append .old to existing symlink and its target file or delete symlinks to prevent collision.

I have SYMLINK="no" and LOGLEVEL="3" in genkernel.conf

Thank you for your reply, editing genkernel.conf the problem is solved. But there is another issue. I build kernel saccesfuly, update boot then reboot. With new kernel i obtain a new error: Network manager is inactive

If you have no network connectivity with new kernel check that your network adapters are listed.

If not you may need to identify and add the correct drivers to your custom kernel configuration and rebuild the kernel.

I have a usb wifi adapter and motherboard built-in ethernet  adapter:

rj@funtoo ~ $ ls /sys/class/net
eth0  lo  wlan0

NetworkManager warning on my system in early boot message from rc.log:

* Starting NetworkManager ...
 [ ok ]

 * Marking NetworkManager as inactive. It will automatically be marked
 * as started after a network connection has been established.
 * WARNING: NetworkManager has started, but is inactive

My network connectivity is established to both wifi and ethernet adapters despite the warning :
