I just found the proper portage package and installed that as well.
A little progress:
bash-4.3# emerge --search pdf
Unknown option: -b
usage: /usr/bin/python [option] ... [-c cmd ¦ file ¦ -] [arg] ...
Try `python -h' for more information.
As suspected it is running my old version of python:
bash-4.3# python -V
I changed python to default to python 3.3 and I have got emerge and
eread working but it is really slow.
Does anything have to be configured ?
