My sabayon install is quite broken and I shall explain the process before I had come upon my unfortunate situation.
I had recently downloaded a bin file and to install it I decided to use cdemu, however since it was not present in the sabayon xfce distro (or atleast when I tried using cdemu in terminal I didn't get a response) I decided to install it through emerge. Then when I attempted to use it with the file, I was unsuccessful... thus I removed it using
Code: Select all
sudo equo remove cdemu
During this entire process I was doing an update in the background, I ran the following
Code: Select all
//everything updated properly
This generated an error to which I sent a bug report from the terminal under the name FZeroWing
I presumed that this error was most likely due to the removal of cdemu that I had done.
At this point I had not noticed any issues with my system, everything was still functional.
now due to the error I opened rigo and updated from there instead, whilst doing this (I regret doing this, I usually have my battery out when my notebook is connected on A/C) My notebook's A/C cord was unplugged by mistake and
the pc turned off during the update process.
now when I start my system and login to my desktop nothing loads, my mouse is frozen and the keyboard is rendered non functional. I also get an error when using the recovery boot from grub stating that my emerge and equo versions are different and I can't seem to do anything at this point with equo/emerge.
Forgive me for being so verbose with this, as I am still a neophyte at understanding the internals of linux.
I would be very grateful if I can get assistance with this. Is it possible for me to fix this using a live CD?
