Background story:
so about a 2 weeks ago ,i have started my gentoo installation.after 11 days of googling and pain i have stumbled across this guide
on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37bmALK7_ag (he has a txt file in the description with all the commands).
and finally after a lot of headache and bugs i was able to install the gentoo without the plasma.

The problem:
after i did this command
Code:
emerge twm xterm

and then
Code:
startx
i got the 3 white terminals but my mouse and keyboard stopped working,i thought that this is ok,so i rebooted unemerged twm xtrem
and installed the kde-plasma,and then rebooted and saw myself staring at the login screen without my keyboard and mouse.

What i have tried:
i have tried to chroot from the livecd and trying to config something in the kernel,but now i can't even mount my chroot path because it is saying that its only in reading mode (/dev/sda).
i have tried ssh to my server but the password is incorrect and i get : permission denied (publickey,keyboard-interactive).

Please help me. :cry:

You can post your emerge --info (you can use wgetpaste)?

I'm trying to do those commands
Code:
root #mount --rbind /dev /mnt/mychroot/dev
root #mount --make-rslave /mnt/mychroot/dev
root #mount -t proc /proc /mnt/mychroot/proc
root #mount --rbind /sys /mnt/mychroot/sys
root #mount --make-rslave /mnt/mychroot/sys
root #mount --rbind /tmp /mnt/mychroot/tmp

And I get
Code:
mount: mount point .... Does not exist

Also when I try to mount
Code:
mount /Dev/sda  /mnt/gentoo/

It's wirting
Code:
mount: /Dev/sda is wirte-protected, mounting read-only
Mount: wrong fs type,bad option,bad superblock on /Dev/sda, missing codepage or helper program,or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so.

I have no idea how KDE is related to your story at all.

Is there a reason why you did not follow the Gentoo Handbook? Because the examples in there should make clear that "/Dev/sda" is not a kind of valid path or partition you can mount somewhere. So, maybe it is /dev/sda1 but you should remember how you set up your partitions.

Now when I try to emerge in my chroot I get this error
Code:
 failed to validate A sane '/dev'.
Bash process substitution doesn't work; this may be an indication of a broken '/Dev/fd'.
