So, I've started experimenting with the Warden's ability to create Linux Jails under PCBSD 9.1 (x64, DVD install).
I created a Gentoo jail by selecting "gentoo-stage3-i486" in the Warden's creation dialog. All went fine, started the jail and launched a Terminal via the Warden.
Given that this is Gentoo I figure I need 'emerge' to install useful packages. Per http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...ap=1#doc_chap1
I tried running 'emerge-webrsync' to kick things off. However, emerge-webrsync ultimately fails, apparently because python (inside the Gentoo jail) tries to use an epoll_create() syscall which FreeBSD (hosting the jail) doesn't support.
So I'm wondering if any one else has managed to get a useful Gentoo jail built via the Warden, where you can use emerge to install packages, etc?
Some more background:
The jail appeared to be created just fine, I could start it and open up a Terminal fine. It even looked linux-y inside:
localhost / # uname -a

The emerge-webrsync output inside my jail:

The related /var/log/messages output outside my jail:

suggests that epoll_* is not supported in FreeBSD (yet?) so it seems we are at an impasse.
Anyone care to point out what I'm missing? (I did a straightforward PCBSD 9.1 DVD installation, no custom tweaks or mods... so far!)
