emerge does not work

Post by detestable » Tue Jul 22, 2008 21:50


I have a trouble with using emerge command. I have googled a lot in search for decision of my problem but couldn't find anything. Here is the log after the command emerge --sync:

>>> Starting rsync with rsync://
>>> Checking server timestamp ...
Welcome to boobie.gentoo.org

Server Address :
Contact Name : [email protected]
Hardware : 2 x Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU 3050 @ 2.13GHz, 3960MB RAM

Please note: common gentoo-netiquette says you should not sync more
than once a day. Users who abuse the rsync.gentoo.org rotation
may be added to a temporary ban list.

Did you install the 3.5 CD version? In that case read the release notes.

Unfortunately I'm not provided with this option.

Probably I have to change some configurations but I don't yet know where and which.
