#749 closed Feature Request (deferred)

Gentoo Linux Jail image does not allow for emerging.

Reported by: paul Owned by: kris
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Misc Version: 9.2-RELEASE
Keywords: warden gentoo Cc: trac-bugs@…


Gentoo Linux Jail image in warden does not appear to allow for basic gentoo functions (such as using portage).

!!! Invalid PORTDIR_OVERLAY (not a dir): '/usr/portage'
!!! main-repo not set in DEFAULT and PORTDIR is empty.

!!! /etc/portage/make.profile is not a symlink and will probably prevent most merges.
!!! It should point into a profile within /usr/portage/profiles/
!!! (You can safely ignore this message when syncing. It's harmless.)

!!! Your current profile is invalid. If you have just changed your profile
!!! configuration, you should revert back to the previous configuration.
!!! Allowed actions are limited to --help, --info, --search, --sync, and
!!! --version.

As there's really no information on the wiki regarding this, I can only assume there's something wrong with the default gentoo image used.

Kris there are some updated scripts that the guys @ freenas are using that have been reported as working. Can we have a look and see if they can be made to work for us as well?

  • Resolution set to deferred
  • Status changed from new to closed

Due to compatibility restrictions in FreeBSD we will be downgrading linux jails to an experimental status and not an official feature until support improves.
