    [SOLVED] Broken Gentoo


    Awhile back around sep 2009 I broke my system and wasn't able to get any help because I was really busy. I ended up unemerging: coreutils, poppler, nettools, and sandbox. How would I be able to fix it. I've tried emerging it, but that obviously didn't work and manually installing it with make-install, but that is broke as well. Is there another way?

    Thanx Parado(>")>

    It might be easier to just reinstall Gentoo, depending on your system and how you had it set up to begin with.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    I'll second MikeTbob's recommendation and think that a fresh install might be faster and cleaner than trying to fix a broken machine and upgrade 7 months worth of outdated packages.

    Already fixed it with just getting the tarballs off tinderbox and extracting them( friend suggested that). But serious guys not to be an A-hole, reinstalling linux to fix a problem is what windows users do, let's be better than that and actually fix the problem! ;P And just to say the time I put into my Gentoo box is about three years of work, so no I wouldn't do a reinstall anyway!

    Thanx for the Help, Paradox(>")>
