Unhappy glibc upgrade gone (slightly) bad


Hi,

i tried to update gibc to 2.3 (Redhat 7.3). I downloaded all packages needed and RPM'd (in terminal mode) all packages needed (binutils, glibc, debug, common, profile, utils, kernel-headers). It seemed to work according to the graphical Gnome RPM they existed and there were no dependencies and queries were ok.

So I reboot and xfs fails and thus I am only booted in terminal mode.

I do not have messages file with me but its failure said that it could not find the libXfont.so.1 shared library. This library did not move. How are glibc and the X11 files related? Anybody run into this before?

Thanks in Advance

I think back in my RH6x days that I upgraded something and had a similar issue. I ended up having to symlink the new so to the old one and that fixed it. I wouldnt call this an answer but might give you some ideas.

Suggestion, when dealing with lib's make backups and keep good notes.
