Re: Yet Another libc5->libc6 question..



ok, I do it this way, after the ldso_1.9.6-2.deb, I do 
dpkg -i libc5_5.4.38-0.1.deb, of couse it is complaining about libc6,
just ignore it, and leave it unconfigure..., then do a dpkg for
libc6_2.0.6-2.deb, I am sure you will be able to do it this time, then
you can go back to dpkg -i libc5_5.4.38-0.1.deb, this time it will
install smoothly, then it will ask you to reboot your system if I
remember correctly..

good luck
