I was on my last steps to my gentoo install. i.e.: I have mozilla,
enlightenment, evolution, xmms, ogle, xawtv, mplayer & gui with all media
supported --> divX, opengl, wmv etc etc and I got the strangest notion to
compile a new gcc. This was incredibly stupidf of me as I can no longer run
configure scripts. It bombs out when testing whether gcc works. --> no and
The strange thing is, I can still compile kernels! Why is that?
All that was left to compile was nfs & possibly rpm4.x support, and that
would have been my work complete on this system. The disk is not big enough
to hold all the divx movies for the kids and I was planning on compiling
kde3 at some stage aswell.
Is there anyway I can undo the damage I've done aside from nuking the
install and starting again? I've downloaded over 700megs of source code. I
suppose I could cp the files via sftp or rsync to another box and save the
downloads. But how can I do that exactly, bit unsure and would like to set
this compiling tonight after santy goes home.
I've written a document [& will put it on linux.ie] during the install and
would like to be able to update it with a fix for stupidity ;--)
