Hi,

I have OS X.  I was trying to install a new dyld.  I planned to mv the old one to dyld.old and then copy in the new one.  Problem is that once I moved the old dyld,
my terminal totally broke and now I can't even get a new window.  Is there a way to see /usr/lib in the finder, or is there anyway to fix this without my terminal working?
 I DO NOT want to reinstall everything on my machine.  I can't get my external disk to mount now either, so I can't back up my stuff.   I have a lot of data that I cannot afford to loose.  Alternately, is there a way to just reinstall dyld from the install discs?

-Matt

Sounds like you MV'd something important.

You can access all the invisible directories without the terminal by downloading TinkerTool from www.versiontracker.com and checking the "show invisible system files" checkbox. However, you now seem to have a bigger problem. Terminal not working is a sign that there are some ugly problems behind the scenes. Maybe once you get the new dyld in there the terminal will work again but that has yet to be seen.
