Re: Glibc - configuration and system unable to function

Hi Andrew,

What do you mean by "No program functions".  The programs in /bin are
linked with the libraries in /lib only, so they should probably work.
If your libraries are really corrupted, you can try the following:

1. At lilo: give the command
   linux init=/bin/ash.static
   (You may or may not have this program installed)

2. You will now get a shell, do this:
   echo /usr/lib > /etc/ld.so.conf

Best of Luck,
