Code:

(Could take a couple of minutes if you have a lot of binary packages.)
  .='update pass'  *='binary update'  @='/var/db move'
  s='/var/db SLOT move' S='binary SLOT move' p='update /etc/portage/package.*'
...............

OSError: [Errno 16] Device or resource busy

I recently emerge --sync 'd and then this happened... no idea what I did. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Something wrong with python I guess?

Thanks

any attempt to emerge anything spits out that same output "performing global update... ...device or resource busy." Even after rebooting... : \

try emerging the snapshot from cd over the current portage.
it will overwrite . and then emerge --sync.
if you dont have cd download the latest snapshot and install it.
