Is there anyway to resurrect or connect to a shell that got disconnected? Emerge Help

I get an error with gentoo emerge:

~ # emerge www-client/elinks
!!! ARCH is not set... Are you missing the /etc/make.profile symlink?
!!! Is the symlink correct? Is your portage tree complete?
I believe what happened was I was disconnected during a emerge --sync update.

Also is there anyway to resurrect or connect to a shell that got disconnected as happened here?

If not, then how do I disconnect or kill that session?

I was running ssh, bash, grep, nano (the pico clone), and emerge --sync when there was a network problem and I was disconnected. My isp gave me a new ip address when it happened, judging from running `who'. The command wasn't really important, it was just a really long `grep' command. Also, another question, how do I clear the grep cache? I've edited some website files.

As to your second question,
Also is there anyway to resurrect or connect to a shell that got disconnected as happened here?
see the answer to your question in the thread you linked to.

Sorry, can't answer the first part.


gentoo, package management, portage
