Big Problem with webpart manager webpart pages, etc

Ok, I am doing the following.

1st.  I created a website collection with the publishing portal template
2nd. I edit the homepage because I want to change the page layout, I select blank webpart page and it works.

No the problem is.
If I select minimal.master and set it as master and custom masterpage, I got this error
Error
An unexpected error has occurred.

System.Web.HttpException: Cannot find ContentPlaceHolder 'PlaceHolderPageDescription' in the master page '/_catalogs/masterpage/minimal.master', verify content control's ContentPlaceHolderID attribute in the content page.    at System.Web.UI.MasterPage.CreateMaster(TemplateControl owner, HttpContext context, VirtualPath masterPageFile, IDictionary contentTemplateCollection)     at System.Web.UI.Page.get_Master()     at System.Web.UI.Page.ApplyMasterPage()     at System.Web.UI.Page.PerformPreInit()     at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint)

If I use my own mastarpage that I downloaded from codeplex.
http://startermasterpages.codeplex.com/

I used starter_publishing.master, created it, checked in, approved it
When I tried to approve it, I got this error
System.Web.HttpException: Cannot find ContentPlaceHolder 'PlaceHolderCalendarNavigator' in the master page '~masterurl/default.master', verify content control's ContentPlaceHolderID attribute in the content page.    at System.Web.UI.MasterPage.CreateMaster(TemplateControl owner, HttpContext context, VirtualPath masterPageFile, IDictionary contentTemplateCollection)     at System.Web.UI.Page.get_Master()     at System.Web.UI.Page.ApplyMasterPage()     at System.Web.UI.Page.PerformPreInit()     at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint)

SO, in site collection admin, I went to master page and I had to select v4.master

What I want to do its very simple, And I do not want to touch system files.

I want to create a custom master page, from scratch or with the minimal things? or maybe I need to start with v4.master?
Because I want that after creating the custom master page, I can change the layout to Blank webpart page, thats not too much to ask

Suggestions pls

you should do one of the following
1- create a master page from scratch (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa660698.aspx)
2- copy the v4 . master mane it mypage.master then make your changes as you want

one more simple way is keep adding missing content place holders in your current version of minimal master page and that will do the magic ;)

you can add new placeholder as given below:

<asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="New Place holder name" runat="server" />
