Hello,

Since I have decided to clean up my disk a bit I have decided to remove stuff from /var/tmp/portage and after that everything was ok. Unfortunately after I have removed everything from the /tmp directory during the next boot up I had a lot of errors due to either not loaded driver (e.g fuse) or bad configuration of some config files
(e.g keymap). After I log in as a user I can not startx and even 'emerge' is said to be an unknown command! Can I somehow repair this, what has happened, how to restore the earlier configuration? How can I at least restore the 'emerge' or other basic commands, what configuration files are responsible for them? It seems a real problem for me, please help!

It's bad practise to post the same question in several subforums at the same time.

I suggest to continue this discussion in the first thread https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-647915.html.

Merged with, then split from a duplicate, leaving some posts behind in the process.

Do not post the same, or essentially the same, topic to multiple sections, if you think that a topic is misplaced, report it and it will be moved if appropriate.
