Installing Gentoo 2004.2

Thought I'd post a gotcha that nailed me when trying to emerge sync during the install.

I was getting the following after doing 'emerge sync':

starting rync with rsync://
rsync: getaddrinfo: 873: Temporary failure in name resolution
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(83)

Checked all kinds of things, and finally figure out it was a typo on my part. In the installation docs, where it says to copy the resolv.conf to a locatation findable after chrooting I made a mistake. Instead of:

cp -L /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf

I had typed:

cp -L /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolve.conf

(Notice the 'e' on the end of the second 'resolv'. Did it again with the proper spelling, and everything worked just fine. :)
