libstdc++ : __register_frame_info (Repost)
If you are getting the error
/usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.0-1.so.2: undefined symbol: __register_frame_info
after upgrading to slink, please go through the mail below. Mitch's
solution worked for me. This issue may be irrelevent when the new
stuff shows up on the servers.
This is just a repost; I have little other info.

There is another way to do this that I've seen bouncing around,
but I don't have the link to it yet.
Downgrade your dpkg to 18.104.22.168 and upgrade your libstdc++ if it
hasn't been already. Make sure apt is at 0.1.9.
You can get a tarball of all these debs from
dpkg should still work, although dselect and apt are hosed.
After installing the files above, both dselect and apt should work.
Other packages may still have problems with the __register_frame_info
problem, but they are being recompiled and uploaded so they should
work themselves onto your mirror after a few days.
Hope this helps,
