emerge failed, boot prompt _gone_!
I'm running 2.6.16-gentoo-r6 and I was emerging my world to a new kernel. Somewhere in the process the power failed, and now when I boot the system the last step is missing.
I.e., I get a terminal and a username prompt, but that's it. There's a carriage return, a pause, and another carriage return and then a username prompt again.
I've booted with the minimal install cd, chrooted, and re-emerged my system and my world, but i'm stilling having this problem. passwd is functional, but doesn't change the problem.back?
where did my password prompt go, and how can I get it back?
