I have been working on my Gentoo all day and finally I decided to reboot the machine and BAMMMM

I was working on Fluxbox, Cornky, and did an update to world emerge --update --deep --newuse world


I have a bad display on boot. I managed to use ctrl+alt+backspace and quickly enter a terminal prompt:
localhost:

Now I need assistance. How do I fix this.

I am using ATI PCI (Express) Raedon

I have a Back up of the Root and Boot but I really want to salvage my work from today... and learn how to fix it :wink:

I could overwrite files from my gento backup in windows if needed, but I don't know what file to select.

Any suggestions, P L E A S E

Thanks,
Bill
