MercestesHrm.
evil_steveif you pull them down off a mirror, you should be fine
MercestesI wonder if I untared a stage 3 over a failed install.
marienzMarco3: makes sense?
evil_stevebut if you used the snapshot and portage stuff off the CD, then yes, you're in for a world of hurt...
marienzmercestes: saw my txt on that?
zlinmercestes: you almost certainly did.
loki_valmercestes: That seemed to make sense as an explanation, but AFAIR, you said you didnt.
moonfartanyone have any recomendations for a bit torent program for gentoo?
loki_valmoonfart: rtorrent. cmd-line, smooth, fast.
moonfartcool
loki_valmoonfart: works with screen.
Mercestesloki_val: I ran into some weird issues with the filesystem earlier, so I made a backup, did an install, failed. AFAIK I did a mkreiserfs on /dev/sda3 and started all over the last time, but it's possible I didn't.
but this was a multiple attempt install that failed a few times
tardo[lt]hey
do i need busybox if i'm using bash?
reisiotardo[lt]: they're not equivalents, so the question doesn't make sense
zlinmercestes: I pointed you at a .txt earlier. did you read it?
Mercesteszlin: Sorry, I didn't catch it.
tardo[lt]ok... what's the equivalent of busybox?
sysvinit?
hliebermantardo[lt], No.... not really.
Mercesteszlin: I went to the server to livecd it
loki_valmercestes: probably you did then, or you aborted an untar and restarted it. Who knows... If it works now, it works.
reisiotardo[lt]: hrmmm, I forget, actually, but it's for when your system is screwed :p
tardo[lt]or embedded systems in my case
reisiobusybox replaced something, I just don't remember what
tardo[lt]however gentoo's init scripts dont like busybox
zlinmercestes: http://dev.gentoo.org/~marienz/stage-tarball-is-not-a-rescue-tarball.txt
Mercesteszlin: lmao. Sweet.
title says it all.
zlinloki_val: it would have to be two different stage tarballs. the same would just overwrite everything.
Mercestesloki_val: yea, that ROOT= switch is magic. Thank you so much for tha ttip.
ChrisGocan i use xdm as gdm for kde since i like that login screen better?
MercestesI may have untarred a stage 3 over a "emerge --sync emerge --update --world" tho.
zlinloki_val: unless of course he emerged something in between. :) right.
Mercestesyea.
this thing has been hosed for weeks.
no telling what I've done to it.
loki_valmercestes: As i said, I don't think it's supported. I use it sometimes to play with portage.
