Ok, I decided to emerge the new portage 2.0.53 onto a few boxes today with mixed results. I had been using the testing branch version for quite some time without any problems, so I was fearless about installing it on a bunch of boxes. That was a misteak. :oops:

On an older box that isn't compulsively updated, I emerge sync'd and got the message to update portage. I emerged portage as instructed. During the process I noticed that portage emerged pax-utils and portage, and that during the clean-up stage, Portage decided to unmerge man-pages, zlip, grep and bash! 8O Yikes!

Now my box is royally b0rked. Any attempts to emerge result in the following error:

Code:
Calculating dependencies ...done!
Unable to run required binary.


So it looks like I need a portage rescue binary for a 586 box. I looked on the ~aveng webspace and didn't find anything helpful.

Can anyone point me to the right place to find a set of 586 rescue binaries?

thx.
