Hi all. I still can't beleive I was THAT stupid but here is what I typed this afternoon :
Code:
# emerge unmerge python

Please use private messages for insults, curses and so on.

Then please use this post to help. Emerge is broken, of course, so here is the question : how do I save this system from doom? I have already unplugged it (Apache won't launch because Python is missing) and can boot it anytime with a LiveCD. But what should I do? I think there's a feature in Portage that would allow me to make a snapshot of Python from another, strictly identical, system. Then how do I copy it to my poor broken server? Or maybe this is suicidal because of revdep and linking problems (I'm not programmer) so I really need a lot of help on this one, I can't afford to reinstall from scratch (valuable data at stake and not time for this)...

Please help (and yes, I've already slapped myself in the face when looking in the mirror).
Thanks !
