Angry I think my windows messed up my Linux


Hello,
I was using windows, and it crashed (huge surprise). So I restarted and decided to use Linux. I got this error:

/bin/bash: error while loading shared libraries: /lib/libncurses.so.5: invalid ELF

Now I can't login as root or my other two users. I can't log in in safe mode. I put the boot disk in the computer, and it said that I had linux installed, but if there was a problem, I could boot using my old system and fix it that way. And once again, I couldn't log in to my system. HELP!

Jagannaathah

Hi Jaganathah

Did you create any appropriate Linux partitions when you installed Linux?

I let SuSE do it (By the way, I am running SuSE). I have been using it without problems for the last week. It just didn't load after windows crashed.
