Alright, my computer is bojangled. I know little about linux. I have Mandrake. I tried to install a new version of Quanta on my pc and messed it up big time. I used a command in the Quanta install guide that would let me have the beta and stable versions on my system here was the command: ./libz.so.1 -> libz.so.188.8.131.52. Then my system froze. I killed the programs with ctrl alt f2. and the computer rebooted. I was then brought to the terminal (the one with the c-address login:.) I logged in as root and tried to get back to the kdesktop and received this message "kdesktop: error while loading shared libraries: /lib/libz.so.1: file too short". This message appears when I try to access just about everything. I am not good at navigating in command prompts, and now I am stuck in terminal. When I reboot, f2 and f12 will not get me to the boot options menu or the bios, I receive a keyboard failure message and cannot do anything until I get to the terminal. I am stuck. No GUI, no nothing. If any one can provide help please do so. keep in mind I cannot boot from cdrom or my XP that's on my hbd. I don't know a lot about linux, so if you provide help keep basic. I need my GUI back I am still learning about PC's. Please help me. If you have info thats in depth you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. If your wondering I am accessing the internet through a friends pc. Thanks Josh.
