gentoo + arch not set..mor0n...

--------------------------error start-----------------------------------
gentoob0x yomuds # emerge -av dsniff

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

!!! ARCH is not set... Are you missing the /etc/make.profile symlink?
!!! Is the symlink correct? Is your portage tree complete?

-------------------------error end-------------------------------------

have you guys having this problem after emerging with --sync option. if you had, here is a solution to overcome this problem.

shell> ls -al /etc/make.profile.
check where is the softlink of /etc/make.profile. if it's pointing to the correct file (/usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2006.0), then it is shoudn't be the problem. but if it not, you need to re-create the softlink file. remove the current /etc/make.profile first.

shell>rm /etc/make.profile
shell>ln -s /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2006.0 /etc/make.profile

hope this help.:D.gentoo always had bad surprises for you guys.btw, gentoo roxx!!.:D
