Unable to install unetbootin [Solved]

Hi to all,
I cannot install unetbootin package. Why?
This is the result of trying to install it through emerge http://pastebin.com/cuEtNRvx
Cannot install it through Rigo since it is unreliable at the moment due to continous crashing as described here viewtopic.php?f=54&t=31708

This is the content of the /var/tmp/portage/sys-boot/unetbootin-603/temp/build.log
http://pastebin.com/3dSciexG

What's wrong and what should I do?
Thanks,
regards.

Hallo Maccabbeo.
If Rigo fails, try to install a program in a root console, e.g. for unetbootin:

Code: Select all

equo install unetbootin
Anyway, why do you want to use Unetbootin? If you only want to create a SabyonLive USB stick, then you can easily do that with the dd command. You can check your USB device as root with:

Code: Select all

fdisk -l
So, provided your USB stick is on /dev/sdb, and is at least 4GByte of size, execute this as root:

Code: Select all

dd if=<downloaded_iso_file.iso> of=/dev/sdb bs=4096
Be aware to write the whole device (sdb, not sdb1 or sdb2)...
Hope to help you.

..and regarding portage :

Code: Select all

make: g++: Command not found
check g++

Code: Select all

$ locate x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-g++
you'll have something like :

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-g++
/usr/bin/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-g++-4.7.3
/usr/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/gcc-bin/4.7.3/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-g++
if not ...

Have you installed gcc ?

Code: Select all

# equo i sys-devel/gcc

anyway , you can use "dd" command as Linuxfluesterer says

Seems you miss sys-devel/gcc and sys-devel/base-gcc.

If Rigo doesn't work properly use equo.

Yeah, that was the problem. How should I mark this thread as "Solved" ?
Also, is there any way to add attachments to the threads of this forum?

The attachments feature has been disabled. So it isn't possible to add any attachments anymore.
For command line output, logs and such use the code tags.

Done, thanks. However the code tags are not enough when you want to attach a dmesg output. I will use pastebin in such cases.
