1. You need to update ALL your packages to hamm
2. Reboot if you haven't done that already
3. You need to move the wtmp file and truncate the utmp file:
mv wtmp wtmp.libc5
cp /dev/null utmp
4. You might want to reboot again to make sure
This is because the "struct utmp" and thus the utmp and wtmp "databases"
are different between libc5 and libc6
