Default unmerge boo_boo

Well,

I've done it now, being in too big of a hurry.

After an emerge --sync, and the blocking packages, I
got in a hurry, did not think and ran:

emerge --unmerge sys-libs/ss sys-libs/com_err
sys-fs/e2fsprogs sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs


So now I cannot emerge anything to fix this.

Here I tried (re) emerge wget:

Downloading 'ftp://rm.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/gnuftp/gnu/wget/wget-1.11.1.tar.bz2'
wget: error while loading shared libraries: libcom_err.so.2: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory


Can I just copy some file over from another amd64 machine?

If so, which ones exactly?


If not, any other ideas to fix this?

It's com_err you need to make wget work again. Using 'emerge -fpv
com_err' should get you a list of URL(s) for the file(s) needed, then
you can use a web browser to download them and put them in your
distfiles/ directory. (Or if you've got them on the other machine,
just copy them from there.)

After you have com_err installed, use 'emerge -fuDN' to to get
everything you need to upgrade before you unmerge the blockers again.

Hi,

As your error shows, the problem is wget is broken so you cannot
download anything using wget. If you can use another tool to FTP the
wget archive to /usr/portage/distfiles, or copy it from another
machine, then you should be able to rebuild wget and proceed with
emerging everything else. I ran into the same problem on my laptop a
while back.

There were lots of people who got bit by this, if you do some
searching on this list or on the forums, or this bug:

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=234907

you can get additional info that might help you some more.

Good luck!

Well, com_err broken openssl which broke wget with "ssl" USE flag set.
I forgot to mention that part.

Disable "ssl" USE flag when you rebuild wget, then you can download
everything else you need to rebuild. When you're done, you can rebuild
wget with SSL and should probably do a revdep-rebuild to see if
anyhing else got missed. If you don't have the current wget sources in
distfiles, see if you have /any/ and try to rebuild the exact version,
that way you don't need to download manually or copy from another PC.
