i dont even think that i have had such a big problem with windows.
so here i am in slackware 8.1, testing the glib packages from slack-current. i upgrade the packs, but maya stops working(complains about one of it's native libs, which was working a minute ago). fine, i switch back to the previous version of glib and glibc, but the problem persists, so i just go and change to the newer versions, and leave maya for later. however during upgrading, it spits out an error that the ****ing /bin/rm (and mv and so forth)is missing/cannot be executed(dont remember which one)(they were executable and i was root). fine, i start mc, but it doesnt start, it complains that something else is missing. i type df and it complains that it's missing.
i reboot and what do i get, a complain that /sbin/agetty is missing(cannot be executed). so now im thinking WTF.
i bring the slack cd, and boot from it(start the setup program). it mounts the hd, so i jump on another console and lo and behold, the bloody files are there.
