Walking in the shoes of a true n00b and doing an emerge to uninstall a package (the new one would not install due to a block). I blindly and happily uninstalled python – then my happiness melted away when I went to do the emerge –Dup world to see what was next, I promptly got:

bash: /usr/bin/emerge: /usr/bin/python: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

How do I manually reinstall python? I got the tar file to my /tmp directory and ran “./configure” “make” and “make install” - no luck, I think this has something to do with linking?

Help would be greatly appreciated…

Reason: More helpful to refer the user to Manually fixing broken portage installations because that, old, old post, although providing dramatic evidence that this topic has been beaten to death, is not the best resource we have on that topic.

Thanks.
