I have managed to solve my previous problems finally.
What happened was, I had to install Windows (dont worry, had enough space left for it) but while I did that, it made my linux partition inactive, screwed up the MBR and made itself active. It said I could re-activate the other partition if I needed to. Fine
All went well, I went to disk management, to re-activate my linux partitoin. . . it wouldnt do it from there.
Tried using FC4 CD to do an "upgrade" to re-write the bootloader, but since it"didnt install any new packages, bootloader settings remain unchanged".
Well, my trusty Knoppix CD came in handy. Used QParted or whatever its called ,handy little tool, then activated the Linux partition. Hmm it wouldn't boot, because I saved the bootloader to the MBR.
I had no choice (well, I probably did) but re-installed FC4. Now everything works fine. Managed to get SSH access from my windows PC im in right now.
I installed the Call of Duty dedicated server, which required I think an older version of gcc, 3.2 i think it was. Did that, extracted into the /lib folder. I must have deleted something without knowing. The game server runs ok now, but htat was doing it remotely from SSH.
Today, I went downstairs, tried logging on KDE. "error initialising kdeinit" or something. I looked at the more specific error report, it said
/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 not found (needed by /user/lib/libstdc++.so.6)
Sounds easy, just need to get libgcc_s.so.1 thats what google.com is there for, right?
Well, gave it a bash. The amount of rubbish I get
Here is another topic similar http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...oto=nextoldest
Unfortunately, every file is just not there, sometimes I get told that it isnt there anymore.
I tried a search on www.rpmfind.net
but it was not very successful.
Am I doing something completely wrong, or am I just out of luck (which I have had lately with linux
. . . until now)
I would really appreciate somebody pointing me in the right direction.
I hope I havent rambled on for too long there.
