glibc pam trouble: please help!!!!!
Posted on 2003-03-04
i recently started using Mandrake 9 on my machine. I'm fairly new to Linux -- and I'm in big trouble now! I wanted to install xscreensaver, it needed pam-devel >=0.75. So I got the pam-devel 0.75-30mdk and pam 0.75-30mdk rpms for i586 and used KPackage to install them -- but I unchecked the No dependencies checkbox by mistake and it installed the packages. Now I cant 'su' to root, or do any other login. I get this error if I type 'su' at the command line:
su: /lib/i686/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by /lib/libpam.so.0)
Is there anything I can do to save my installation?
Please help and reply soon -- I cant log off or shut down until I fix this, or I wont be able to log in again !!
