Re: glibc 2.7-3 MIGRATED to testing causes system to stop starting new programs

Hello glibc maintainers,

I managed to reboot the VPS in repair mode. I see a lot of messages like
in /var/log/syslog (example from dovecot, but others programs give errors

Dec  8 21:18:28 foobar dovecot: child 21837 (login) returned error 127
Dec  8 21:19:28 foobar dovecot: imap-login: imap-login: error while
loading shared libraries: /lib/libc.so.6: file too short

I manually installed glibc 2.7-4 (libc6_2.7-4_i386.deb) and will reboot after 
the backup is finished. 

Is there anything else I can check to find out what happened?

Is there a way to find out the kernel name/type of the VPS host system. My
'uname -a' gives: Linux foobar 2.6.9-023stab043.1-smp #1 SMP Mon Mar 5
