Re: recovering from a failed libc6 upgrade
Hmmm, I see. I guess the kernel from the woody install CD is too old as
well. The lifimages (as suggested in my first mail) have a more recent
kernel however (2.4.19-??). So I guess netbooting is still an option. If you
have an additional machine of course ;)
If you don't have an additional machine, maybe this can help:

I assume (net)(CD)booting with the latest kernel should solve the chroot
Tell me if it worked.

Unfortunately, that fails right away.
"kernel too old" is the message I get after doing "chroot /mnt", probably
because as soon as the root is changed, we start using binaries living
but they all fail because the wrong libc6 lives there.
