Bug#406619: libc6 [2.5-0exp3] dies on upgrade
This is a followup to Soren's problem
I have had the same problem happening to me, two days ago,
at an upgrade of the testing version. I followed the
advice given here
The machine is in NYC, USA am in Novosibirsk, Russia.
But I still have a root window.
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/
but without the sudo, I think it worked. At first this
appeared to have cleared the problem.
I then tried to complete the libc6 update with dselect.
I have not been able to complete the update, because
tzdata install failed. I then removed the /lib/tls, as suggested
Now I am still in a fix.
fasolt:/lib# echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Floating point exception
Trying something else
ls: error while loading shared libraries: librt.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
dselect: error while loading shared libraries: libm.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
find: error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Is there an $LD_LIBRARY_PATH that would give me
access only to the old versions of the library?
Or do you think, I should ask my friend (who
know as much about Linux as a cow about flying)
that he reboots the machine by pressing the off
button for a while and hope this all clear at
reboot, despite the fact that the installation of
libc6 is broken?
