I just deleted python to upgrade it to 2.5 but that was a bad idea - can someone guide me to one of the many topics about reinstalling packages from install packages and where to find them without downloading a whole gentoo CD ?

[I know this kind of stuff has been discussed a thousand times but I don't know what term to use for search]

Right now I am ROFL cause its too funny when something like this happens to someone using gentoo for years - but sometimes I need to do this - its fun. :D

Thanks.

I solved it by copying over the binaries from the livecd.

I dont remember how I did it. You could try to boot the livecd, open a console and try to emerge python with

ROOT=/mnt/yourmountedlinuxpartition PKGDIR=/mnt/cdrom/packages emerge -av --usepkg python

Quote:
--usepkg (-k)
Tells emerge to use binary packages (from $PKGDIR) if they are
available, thus possibly avoiding some time-consuming compiles.
This option is useful for CD installs; you can export
PKGDIR=/mnt/cdrom/packages and then use this option to have
emerge "pull" binary packages from the CD in order to satisfy
dependencies.

Quote:
ROOT = [path]
Use ROOT to specify the target root filesystem to be used for
merging packages or ebuilds. This variable can be set in
make.conf(5) when PORTAGE_CONFIGROOT has a value other than /.
Defaults to /.


If that doesnt work you could try to find a binary package of python on the web ( a binary package for other distros will do too, it only has to be the version for your system, e.g. x86 / amd64 ). If you take a binary package for debian or ubuntu you could simply unpack it AFAIK. Yet this is not a clean solution because you willl have files on your system that are not tracked by portage.

Try to find out how to do it with the livecd - maybe someone else can give exact instructions ?

It needs to be written somewhere than Portage is dependent on Python. :lol: :lol:
