Urgent Solaris 8 Sparc 5 not booting

Hi everyone,

I changed on my machine using clre command to setup the load library paths without knowing its consequences
Now when I reboot the machine it says cannot find some  *.so file and it reboots again.
I am not able to get my machine up. Also I dont have a rebootable.

Is there a way I can recover from this
thanks

Did you try booting to single-use mode?

yes I tried to boot in single-use mode.
But the system still gives the same error saying that libnet.so file not found

Even when I go into maintainence mode it reboots after displaying a few .so files not found.

boot up your system from CD in single user mode, and backup all your data to tape or another HD.

Then use your Solaris Software CD run an upgrade install on top of your current system.

Hi thanks for the comment.
What I did was I booted the System using the installation CD.and then mounted the disk and got rid of the ld.config file from /var/ld/sparc9 directory.

thanks for all the comments
