emerge: command not found


I reboot the computer during Gentoo installation (from stage3). This was after building the kernel using Genkernel.

However, after the reboot I could not use emerge. It gave the error message:

emerge: command not found

Most of the commands gave this error, actually..

Can someone tell me how exactly to fix it?

Thanks!

Do you need to become root?

No, I already am root. Also, the exact error is slightly different from what i posted above (oops!) it is:

-bash: emerge: command not found

I think it might be something to do with the chroot which the Gentoo installation guide made me do before rebooting...but now I can't even do that same command again, it doesnt work.

There are just so many ways of installing Gentoo, so we just don't know what you have done unless you say exactly what you did and the results.

If you start like you did the install from scratch and mount the partitions from that chroot environment, do the partitions contain something that looks like that partition should?

Does /usr/bin/emerge work? If so, there may be something wrong with your path.
How about ... 'whereis emerge'?
"find / -name 'emerge' "?

ar1 - I am installing gentoo as well and got the same error.
However, if you go to chapter 6 of the install doc, and re-do code listing 4 (chroot) then it will work ok. Good Luck.

I'm getting this problem too, during install. I get "-bash: emerge: command not found". I'm installing from stage3 and I don't completely understand the GRP thing but I have 2 CDs? I'm following the installation guide. And I'm stuck here at the kernel part. It just keeps telling me "emerge: command not found". Please help I haven't had any problems until now.
