Re: libc problem during potato upgrade
Ok, I've had a chance to examine the machine. It appears as if some
lingering old libraries in /usr/lib (libc.so-2.0.7 and a host of others,
libnss_*, etc) were causing the problem. The blame for that rests
squarely with me. ;) I'm still in the process of recovering the machine,
as got some pretty nasty filesystem curruption..
Thanks again for the help, Bart. :)
