Yesterday before work, I ran emerge sync and then emerge world, shutdown and left. When I got home, all hell had broken loose.

First of all, it renamed a bunch of devices. eth0 used to be nothing, eth1 my wireless NIC, and eth2 my ethernet card. Now all of the sudden, eth0 is my ethernet card, apparently eth0 doesn't exist, and nothing recognizes my wireless card anymore. Clearly enough, I got the internet working again (had to manually run dhcpcd on eth0 and rc-update add net.eth0 default)

Initially, I figured this wasn't a problem, an all I'd have to do was edit a few config files to point to eth0 instead of eth2.

But now, I've really got something to worry about:

Code:

citizenbleys@reynard ~ $ su
Password:
configuration error - unknown item 'FAILLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'LASTLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'MOTD_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'FTMP_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'ENV_ROOTPATH' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'PASS_MIN_LEN' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'CHFN_AUTH' (notify administrator)


whisky tango foxtrot. It's yelling at me for switching users to root so that I -can- start fixing things? Not a good sign.

I didn't see anything in dmesg that jumped out at me in dmesg (Well, except for a problem with my wireless card, but I'll troubleshoot that later)
