Angry How to restore RedHat 5


Hi,

Can I restore RedHat 5 without losing any data? I have not had a backup. The message is the /lib/ directory contents are missing on this host.
Is there a way I can retrieve or restore the /lib/ directory?

Thanks for your help.

you are paying for support on the OLD legacy rhel5

if the whole /lib folder is well missing

you will need to reinstall
the current version in the old legacy 5 series is RHEL 5.10
