I'm tring to install Gentoo. So far I've gotten the latest set of portages, bootstraped, chroot to /mnt/gentoo, updated the environment var., I got to the point where I install the kernel source. I typed in:

Code:
emerge --usepkg vanilla-sources


There are lines before this, but they're the usual environment checks. every thing else was ok.The installation stops when it gets to this point:

Code:
configure: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for autoconfig-lib-link

!!! ERROR: sys-devel/gettext-0.12.1 failed.
!!! ERROR: Function econf, Line 324 Exitcode 1
!!! econf failed


How can i fix this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Nu2Linux

Try
Code:
emerge vanilla-sources

Not all packages have pre-compilled binaries availabe.
If you have any more problems post to gentoo forum

Thanks, but I still got the same....well actually i noticed it said some thing like:

Code:
/usr/sbin/ebuild.sh line 108 /dev/stdout: No such directory


I checked and /dev/stdout is a link to fd1 (whatever that is). step 2??

try downloading the kernel manually
Code:
wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-2.6.1.tar.bz2
