Re: WARNING: libc6 in unstable

Yep, this caught me out at midnight last night and I've yet to
tackle it.
I can only boot into runlevel two (where booting now stops).  It
won't let me login though.

My plan was to use the debian install cd 1 to boot and mount the
linux partition.  I should be able to downgrade from there, right?

What is the downgraded command I should be using?
