Re: recovering from a failed libc6 upgrade

- exit the installation
- mount your local disk
- chroot to the disk
- install/compile newer kernel
Should work ;)

I tried passing init=/bin/sash by adding it on the fly using IPL. Fails.
The kernel still says it tried killing init.
Any help is appreciated.
