Read my previous comment to see whether I am still in chroot or not. I am still more or less a noob so I cant tell by just looking at ls -l /, though I have a pretty good idea from what I see in the terminal, which is that it doesn't say "(chroot) mint linux #" anymore it just says "mint linux #".

I screwed up a bunch of times, yet again... This is a direct copy/paste from my terminal, so you can see everything I input and all the output I got from it displaying the error(s):
Code:
mint linux # nano /etc/portage/package.keywords
mint linux # emerge --ask --tree --verbose sys-boot/grub:2 os-prober linux-firmware

 * IMPORTANT: 4 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.
 * Use eselect news to read news items.


These are the packages that would be merged, in reverse order:

Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No] y

What do you think about this?
Code:
mint linux # grub2-install --no-floppy /dev/sda
source_dir doesn't exist. Please specify --target or --directory


I already completed "emerge --ask --tree --verbose sys-boot/grub:2 os-prober linux-firmware" successfully.

not sure what failed step by step
does
Code:
nano /etc/portage/package.keywords
show
Quote:
<sys-boot/grub-9999 ~amd64
if not, make it so, ctrl-x to close
if one of the following commands seems to fail, repeat it piping the output to wgetpaste example:
Code:
emerge linux-firmware | wgetpaste
post the url returned
Code:
emerge linux-firmware

Code:
emerge os-prober

Code:
emerge --ask --tree --verbose sys-boot/grub:2

Code:
grub2-install --no-floppy /dev/sda

Code:
os-prober

Code:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

No input read. Nothing to paste. Aborting.

And emerge --ask --tree --verbose sys-boot/grub:2 either isnt working (no output as of yet whatsoever) or it is taking a long time. Im willing to bet it isnt the latter.

EDIT: Why isnt "app-emulation/xen-4.1.1-r2" emerging? Here is the output of "emerge --info '=app-emulation/xen-4.1.1-r2'"

saw your new thread.
Code:
ls /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc | wgetpaste
ls /boot | wgetpaste
ls /lib/firmware/radeon | wgetpaste
emerge -pv sys-boot/grub:2 | wgetpaste
post url's, I'll look to be sure you are still in chroot and whether grub2 files are present
