ego: command not found


Question

Hi All

This is the first time I am trying to install funtoo on an old T61 laptop, it was going good till I have been instructed to do ego sync to sync the portage tree, I am getting

-bash: ego: command not found

Note: as instructed I fire this command from chroot, and i am using gentoo livecd

Thanks

A short Google search says your T61 has a Core 2 Duo T7300 CPU.  After searching for T7300 on the Funtoo CPU database ( https://www.funtoo.org/Funtoo_CPU_Database ) I see that it requires the generic_64 subarch tarball so go ahead and use that one.  After the install is complete you can use ego to set your profile to native_64 if you wish gcc to use -march=native.

Thanks Lazlo for the help, i followed the generic_64 all went well, but after reboot nothing, the HD is not booting anymore, I wanted to try on this old T61 before i can perform the real test on a production pc.

I used the rescue cd from the link of main funtoo install page, since the T61 was not booting from HD i tried to boot from this rescue usb, now after reboot in the rescue cd it looks different e.g. i can not run any command, I tried lsblk nmtui etc but getting command not found

Let me know what can be done here

Thanks

Hi Lazlo

Here are my answers

First off, did grub install ok?   ==> Yes no errors

Was there any strange output from ego boot update?  ==> No

What error message do you get when trying to boot?  ==> No message just a cursor blinking

Did you install based on UEFI or BIOS?  ==> BIOS

Hope it helps

Thanks
