Hey everyone.. recently when I try to emerge a package using emerge -av I receive a strange error: For example:

when i try to emerge -av vmware-server, i get:

Code:
 emerge -av vmware-server
shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory


I tried emerge --sync and still this error does not go away.. How do I go about fixing it?

try to change of current directory. Apparently, you are on a directory which has been removed.

Don't feel dumb, just think of how many users like me you've helped over the years.
