Accidentally removed shadow package
OK, I've done something fairly stupid. I was checking what packages were installed on my machine with slapt-get when I noticed that in addition to the shadow package from slack -current I also had the shadow package from an old install of dropline gnome installed. So, I told slapt-get to remove shadow.
Well, slapt-get removed the slack -current version of shadow first, but I didn't notice it until the removal was underway. Since I hadn't yet removed the dropline version of shadow, the one I really wanted to remove, I told slapt-get to remove shadow again, which it dutifully did.
Ahem, now I can't reinstall the shadow package from slack -current, because when I removed shadow, it took su with it. In fact, I can't log in at all anymore, because I need shadow to do it.
So, I am thinking that the only way out of this is to reboot the machine using my 10.2 CD and reinstall the shadow package from CD. Can I do that? And how?
