Unhappy Reboot Error: "initlog: error while loading shared libraries: libpopt.so.0"


Hi,

I have a Redhat 9 AS 3.0 system, dual boot with win2k. It has been working fine.

Recently, I installed pcsc-lite & ccid drivers for smart card. While running ./configure for both, I gave --prefix=/usr. After make, make install, I rebooted. The system wont boot properly.

The grub loads, and I can boot successfully with the Win2k. When I choose linux, the initial startup goes on, till it reaches the Init stage. There I get the following messages ( they are not verbatim, and I am only posting some, the rest are other tasks which also [ FAIL ])

-----------------------quote-----------------------------
"

It gives me an option to type in root password or press Ctrl-D to continue.
When I give the root password, I get to a shell, Repair Filesystem.

I read other posts on this and other forums, and did a few steps.

/etc/fstab is as follows
-----------quote ----------------------
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 11
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 12
none /dev/pts
....
....
...
and so on
------------------------------unquote---------------
All seem to be fine.

Running df gives

Running e2fsck on the individual partitions gives no errors
-----------quote----------------

and so on
----------unquote--------------------------

When I exit out of the shell, system says,
----------quote--------------------------
rm: cannot remove '/halt': Read only file system
/etc/rc/d/rc/sysint: line 595 : /var/run/utmpx: No such file or directory
----------unquote--------------------------


I booted using the Redhat CDRom , in the linux rescue mode. I am able to start with networking, and was able to view all the partitions, access any file under various users, etc.

I am not sure what other information any expert would need to fix my problem. I am guessing(hoping) that it is not serious, since I did not explicitly delete any files, only installed some smartcard drivers(pcsc-lite and ccid under /usr ( "[pcsc-lite-@athena] ./configure --prefix=/usr"] ).

Can someone please help me fix any problems, so I can have a normal booting Graphical Linux system like before.

Thanks in advance.

I should have mentioned, I can find libpopt.so.0 under /usr/lib & /lib, so I assume they are installed properly.

you do realize that this a a VERY LONG DEAD thread for the very long dead RH9
the last post was from 2004

posting your question in the section for the operating system you are using will better get a response

and if you ARE using the very dead rh9
install a modern operating system
rh9 was phased out in 2003


please post in the section for your OS
and include just what this " vm5.8" is
what is the company that makes it

and what is the base operating system that this VM is running on
