Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've been working with out servers for the past several years. We have a mix of OS. Fedora, Ubuntu, RHEL, etc. I've accidentally trashed the libc.so.6 link and now nothing but shell commands work. I tried to echo "/lib/libc-2.10.2.so into the /etc/sestatus.conf file, but that didn't have any affect. Does anyone know where the search path is maintained besides PATH so I can try to point the apps to the /lib/libc-2.10.2.so file? I have a bunch of SVN repos on this server and right now, no one has access. I'm desperate.
Thank-you. The ldconfig worked through the install disk in rescue mode. The only thing I'm confused about now is I installed Trac in /opt and now it's gone. I did run "upgrade" from the install disk (ISO) image 1, but I didn't think that would blow away anthing in /opt. This is a RAID server and I doubt that Trac is on the other drive, but who knows. This has been a very strange problem.
You say you've destroyed the "link". Does "ln -s" not work to recreate the link?
>> Hi, i am Dinh. I was updating the eglibc to my board to support valgrind on my board. I copied the libc-2.13.so to /lib and used "ln -s" to change the link of libc.so.6 from libc-2.3.5.so to the libc-2.13.so but the "ln" did not work.
>> If this file is removed by "rm", the "ln" or "su" and some linux services die. Then I had to reload the file system for the board.
>> I believe the "ln" or "su" or other linux commands are using the /lib/libc.so.6
>> Is there any other way to update the libc tricky without update the root file system?
