OMG, I've just uninstalled python by accident. How could I get it back when emerge doesn't work without it?
I apologize for such a stupidity.........

You can download a binary package of it from the tinderbox and manually extract it to /
Then immediately re-emerge python so that it gets correctly installed.

There are two versions available in the tinderbox, download whichever one you removed:

http://tinderbox.dev.gentoo.org/html/default-linux/x86/All/python-2.4.4-r13.html
or
http://tinderbox.dev.gentoo.org/html/default-linux/x86/All/python-2.5.2-r7.html

Edit: it is mostly like the 2.5 version you will need.

Accidental destruction of critical packages is a common problem, addressed in the forum FAQs (under System Administration). See this post and topic for further instructions on the repair described above by yabbadabbadont, and in future please search before posting (even when panicked :wink:).
