I was trying to install this plugin, following a guide:
Code:
mkdir goog; cd goog
wget http://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-talkplugin_current_amd64.deb
ar vx google-talkplugin_current_amd64.deb
sudo tar xvzf data.tar.gz -C /

but it looks like i messed up the entire system. This is the goog directory tree:
Code:
dell-gentoo goog # ls -la
total 24572
drwxr-xr-x  5 root    root        4096 Jun 14 12:31 .
drwxr-xr-x 33 leandro leandro     4096 Jun 25 19:43 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 leandro leandro     7028 Jun 25 17:27 control.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--  1 leandro leandro 12555409 Jun 25 17:27 data.tar.gz

-rw-r--r--  1 leandro leandro 12562630 Jun 25 15:33 google-talkplugin_current_amd64.deb
drwxr-xr-x  3 root    root        4096 Jun 14 12:31 opt
drwxr-xr-x  4 root    root        4096 Jun 14 12:31 usr

First, there was no portage, and emerge command was not found. Then i re-download the portage tree, re-emerge portage and now im able to emerge again. But, i.e, i can't startx:
Code:
...

Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
/usr/bin/openbox: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
xinit: connection to X server lost

waiting for X server to shut down .Server terminated successfully (0). Closing log file.

xauth: (argv):1:  bad display name "dell-gentoo.mshome.net:0" in "remove" command


revdep-rebuild tells that it has to reinstall gcc, but it fails

Code:
dell-gentoo # cat /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/gcc-4.6.3/temp/build.log
...
configure: error: in `/var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/gcc-4.6.3/work/build':

 * S: '/var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/gcc-4.6.3/work/gcc-4.6.3'


I think that the problem is here:
Code:
dell-gentoo ~ # ls /usr/lib/
firefox  iceape  iceweasel  midbrowser  mozilla  portage  xulrunner  xulrunner-addons


Maybe untar that file to / messed up the entire /usr/lib?
This post is pretty bad formatted and wrote, my apologies. Thank you and help me please!

For each file that you allowed the Google Debian package to overwrite, you must replace that file with the correct one for the system. If you build binary packages before installing, you can use those. Otherwise, refer to your most recent system backup and hope that the backup is current enough to have the correct versions of the files you need.

This kind of mistake is one of the types that package managers are designed to avoid. Portage knows not to overwrite files owned by packages other than the one being installed. By bypassing Portage, you bypassed this basic safety check and made a mess of the system.

I would say tinderbox to get gcc and glibc back and then emerge -e @system @world I recommend having some reading material on hand because this could take a day or so. A reinstall might be cleaner.

You can either use portage to emerge these files or untar them to /. You can ignore the error messages. They are meant to be able to do this in an emergency.

Just for the records.

Looks like the system is alive again; actually i'm posting from it. So, i downloaded gcc from tinderbox, untar it to /, re-emerge glibc. Now most app start working again. Now i'm re-emerging the whole system, so wish me luck. BTW thank you so much Doc!
