Package: libc6
Version: 2.5-4
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks unrelated software

Once again, with feeling.
1. Attempt to fix up dependencies and upgrade using apt -4 install. As soon
as it attempted to actually install this library, if failed with sh looking
for one of those lib....so.# which are no longer in /usr/lib.
2. So installed libc6 only (ok, afterwards, locale and other things need be
upgraded as well, but...) using dpkg -i. This succedes. Now bash can no
longer process bashrc files and any attempt to run simple commands (except
for cd) looks for those numberd .so libraries. Same problem as in previous
bug report.

So I will once more downgrade to 2.3.*. Little harm done.

Time to get to the bottom of this, please.

  As nvidia.ko is a kernel module hence does not uses libc, yes it can.
