So I installed gentoo on my Powerbook G4, and right after I completed the installation process and rebooted, I decided to emerge some things I needed. I tried to emerge sudo and got the "e2fsprogs, com_err, ss" blocks so I unmerged them. Unfortunately for me, the computer rebooted and now /proc won't mount correctly, which makes sense because e2fsprogs is missing.

Can anyone tell me a way I can fix this? I am using the PPC Universal CD and was thinking maybe I could chroot back into the machine somehow and re-emerge e2fsprogs and w/e else I needed.

thanks

There is a sticky thread over in portage programming...

in short, you this can be solved with the livecd.

Sorry, that link was not working.
Here:

You have to boot with the CD again, mount your file systems again (root etc. like you did before chroot last time) and mount dev and proc as described in the handbook. Then chroot again like before. Then you can emerge e2fsprogs, follow the link above to get around blocks.

Well, im guessing I have to download the stage3 tarball again, and the portage snapshot too. Emerge gave me errors when trying to sync, so I went back and downloaded them. I have yet to try again though...

No, there is no need to download the stages again, you only need to do the things required to set up the machine (network, load modules, mount chroot, etc.). The goal is to get into your system to fix it, not to start over.

To avoid having to boot with the cd, it is possible to install the unmerged version if you have the files in /usr/portage/distfiles:

Code:
# locate e2fsprogs | grep distfiles
/usr/portage/distfiles/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.3.tar.gz
/usr/portage/distfiles/e2fsprogs-1.41.3.tar.gz
/usr/portage/distfiles/e2fsprogs-1.40.8.tar.gz
/usr/portage/distfiles/e2fsprogs-1.40.9.tar.gz
/usr/portage/distfiles/e2fsprogs-1.41.2.tar.gz
/usr/portage/distfiles/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.2.tar.gz


You can then emerge the unmerged ebuild:
Code:
emerge -av =sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41.3


Cheers!
