[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?
It might be easier to just reinstall Gentoo, depending on your system and how you had it set up to begin with.
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that a fresh install might be faster and cleaner than trying to fix a broken machine and upgrade 7 months worth of outdated packages.

Thanx for the Help, Paradox(>")>
