RedHat crash during glibc2.0.7 installation.
Posted on 1998-12-14
My RedHat 5.2 installation has crashed after an aborted installation of glibc2.0.7. This was done with the shell script "soprep" delivered with StarOffice 5.0. I made a mistake and did not start the script in a new shell, as I should, but ran it from the root login shell. (By the way; is this a mortal sin?)
Now LILO stops quite soon, and the last message is:
VFS:Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) read only.
I have not made an image disk for rescue purposes. Now I wonder: How can I save this installation?
