due to the lack of php working on my ibook, i decided to dual boot with debain and gentoo. because i didn't want to lose my gentoo system, i backed it up via disk utility in os x. debian install went fine, and i copied my gentoo system back over fine, but when i went to boot it, it stops at "mounting /proc" and says "only root can do that"

so, i dug out my gentoo livecd, chrooted, and attempted to change the password for root. it fails, and i get this message:

Code:

passwd: Authentication token manipulation error


so what to do? how do i make these messages go away?

Probably an access rights issue. Assuming that you chroot correctly (all partitions mounted without error, proc mounted and 'env-update && source /etc/profile' brings no errors), then could you please show us the output of:
Code:
ls -la /usr/bin/passwd
and also:
Code:
ls -la /bin/passwd

ls -la /bin/passwd:

Code:

-rws--x--x  1 501 501 32860 2005-03-16 15:44 /bin/passwd


and ls -la /usr/bin/passwd

Code:

lrwxr-xr-x 1 root root 11 2005-08-01 17:44 /usr/bin/passwd -> /bin/passwd
