Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.6.ds1-10
Severity: grave

First of all the libc6 upgrade fails segfaulting on every command. This
can be fixed (if one still has a root shell) using :

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib/tls/i686/cmov /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ld-linux.so.2 \
/usr/bin/sudo /bin/cp /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ld-linux.so.2 /lib/

Then however locale generation pretends to work but languages are not

That's actually the problem. We can't caught with files that are not
handled by the packaging system in the glibc scripts. That's why I am
closing the bug.

To understand how such a situation happens, have you at some point moved
the /lib/tls directory (for example if you tried Xen)? That could
explain the situation if then you uninstalled libc6-i686 and moved back
again the /lib/tls directory.
