Unhappy Boot errors


When I tried to boot up this morning I receive the following errors:

init: plymouth main process (302) terminated with status 127

mountall: symbol lookup error: /lib/libm.so.6 undefined symbol: , version GLIBC_2.0

init: mountall main process (323) terminated with status 127

I am using Ubuntu 10.10 and things have been fine until now.
Can someone explain the errors and suggest how I can fix them. Right now I am using the trial version on the install cd to get up. I do have access to my main hard drive so I can make corrections.

Thanks Sam Watson

Sounds like this bug - quite how you managed to get it is a mystery (they seemed to be talking about an upgrade at a specific point in time when they were changing package files over...)

Do the steps that the developers propose fix this problem?

I tried the following (from the link):
----------------------------
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
(where /dev/sda1 is your boot partition)

sudo chroot /mnt

sudo ln -s /lib/libply-boot-client.so.2.0.0 /lib/libplybootclient.so.2
-------------------------------
At this point I get:
sudo: unable to resolve host ubuntu

Any other suggestions?

Sam

I think he must have made a mistake typing - I think he meant "root" rather than "boot" partition. Certainly, you wouldn't expect to find a /boot/lib directory, and I don't think it should be able to access any binaries if you've chrooted into your boot partition (which is what I would assume the error is complaining about). Try doing it with the root partition? Sorry for that

EDIT: Tbh, chrooting is really rather unnecessary:
Code:
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt 
sudo ln -s /mnt/lib/libply-boot-client.so.2.0.0 /mnt/lib/libplybootclient.so.2
replacing /dev/sda1 with your Ubuntu root partition
