Bitten by bug #172860

This seems to be a common bug.  There's a patch (manual edit) already available.
How do I emerge after patching the ebuild to avoid checksum problems?

I THINK emerge --digest <package name> will work.  Try with -p first
though, just in case.  ;-)

An unofficial guide for patching a package in an ebuild: 
http://dev.gentoo.org/~masterdriverz/patch.xml

It sounds like you only need the last step. emerge --digest will digest all 
packages that are pulled in as deps. If all deps are already merged that 
doesn't really matter but otherwise I at least consider that to be evil. :) 
The install and clean phases in the guide are just for testing it. `man 1 
ebuild` for reference.

xterm settings with utf-8 unicode


Hello,

Sometimes I use an xterm in cygwin to login to gentoo boxes and I have problems with font display. For
instance I see in the cygwin xterm:

src/ports/Mod4_initdt.f90:1: warning: unused variable â
src/ports/Mod4_initdt.f90:1: warning: unused variable â

when I should see

src/ports/Mod4_initdt.f90:1: warning: unused variable 'charvec_ptr'
src/ports/Mod4_initdt.f90:1: warning: unused variable 'ivec_ptr'

The latter I obtain by running an xterm remotely on the gentoo box. However it is not always convenient to
fire up xterms on the remote machine.

Would anyone know what is missing either on the cygwin or gentoo ends to get this working? Almost everything
displays correctly most of the time. Sometimes I have a few characters not correctly displayed on man
pages. This problem started after I upgraded to profile 2006.1 with unicode utf-8 character encoding.
The gentoo emerge --info is

Portage 2.1.2.2 (default-linux/x86/2006.1, gcc-4.1.1, glibc-2.5-r0, 2.6.18.6 i686)
=================================================================
System uname: 2.6.18.6 i686 Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 2.60GHz
Gentoo Base System release 1.12.9

It is part of baselayout.  So emerge -1v baselayout should work fine.

Hope that helps.

I've rebuilt a machine this week by updating/upgrading nearly everything (the 
box had not been touched for a nearly year).  I was fearing the amount of 
breakages that would occur in the process and still cannot believe that I had 
zero packages failing to emerge.  Two other machines that I update regularly 
had no failures either.  If my experience is anything to go by, then there 
may be something wrong with your machine/build.

It does sound like an overheating thing, as already mentioned,
especially since you had overheating problems before.

Can you confirm that _all_ fans are working?  I thought I only had 2
fans, but there are actually 3, so watch out for hidden ones!  Also, you
could use the dell kernel module (i8k) to force your fans to full speed
and see if that helps.  Finally on the heating side, try taking it apart
(if you're happy with that - you break it you keep the pieces :) and
cleaning out all the dust / dirt from the fins.

Another possibility is your memory - maybe its going flaky?  This is a
common compile problem that gives varied results (lockups, panics,
halts, etc).  Try different ram if you have it, or only half your ram at
a time if you have 2 sticks.  You could also try the memtest bootable
cd.

HTH!
