Yes it would, have you tried the emerge command yet?

"emerge -p packagename" as mentioned.

Did a little googling, you could try replacing the apt-get/yum install with "emerge PACKAGE NAME"
I havnt tried this, but it may/may not work....

well the commands given to install the software (yum install ..... and apt-get install .....) given in that documentation are for rh/debian based distro's. That'll be why those commands arent working

Why could that be?

When you type the password it will not show anything on the screen, type it and just press enter.

Also login to the manager and check if its booting into rescue mode.
