    ok i posted this on the gentoo forums but no one replied.


    so illl post i here.

    i was going through the installatiion following the guide on lynx. when after i did the "emerge sync" step....the lynx command stoped working....it either stoped working after that or after "source /etc/profile" but i think it was because of "emerge sync" made me verry mad because then i had to reboot into here again......anyone know why it did this?

    Huh? The emerge sync couldn't do anything to lynx as far as I can imagine. What exactly happens when you try to start lynx?

    Dude you were supposed to be running lynx in another console. Right now you're in your new chrooted environment that has nothing installed on it. Use alt f2 to open a new console, which will be running on the livecd, and use alt f1 to switch back. Sorry I should have made that clear last night.

    You should set a root password for the LiveCD first thing you do; it won't affect the chrooted environment. That way you'll be able to log in to the others as well.
