So, as the first thing i did after installing Sabyon was to update portage, via an emerge --sync. then, instead the usual emerge portage blah blah updates whoo i get this fine and dandy error.
!!! ARCH is not set... Are you missing the '/etc/make.profile' symlink?
!!! Is the symlink correct? Is your portage tree complete?
i've checked, and this looks to be in order:
Constantine kod # ls -l /etc/make.profile
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 48 2007-09-01 03:09 /etc/make.profile -> ../usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2006.0
well, i just managed to fix it in the middle of my post, let me show you what i did:
Constantine kod # rm /etc/make.profile
Constantine kod # ln -s /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2007.0/ /etc/make.profile
notice it points to 2007.0 now. hmm. i don't know why i didn't try that last night... >:\ i ended up reinstalling
