botched glibc upgrade -- system freak out
i was trying to get ruby to work right and it said it needed a newer version of glibc, so i went out and got the latest version of glibc. after compiling it, i did a make install(following the directions in the INSTALL file). the install took a while and then crashed towards the end. at this point, pretty much everything on my system stopped working correctly: every command i entered came back with a glibc error. i couldn't even shut it down properly. now the same thing happens when i boot, it cant initialize because things are so screwed up. is there any way i can recover from this?
