Shared library error


I keep getting the same error message whenever I try to type in the CLI. This is after I did and swaret --upgrade. I let it run overnight and when I check on it this morning I was getting this error.

error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I am not sure what lib this actually is but my best uneducated guess is libcaca.

I wonder how you (and some other swaret users) can break as such a slackware install with
swaret. How did you hack your /etc/swaret.conf ? What sites have you configured as ROOT
servers ?

libc.so is one of the mandatory base libraries, without it, you could not even login in your
computer.

I would try to install glibc with :
swaret --install glibc

or:
swaret --reinstall glibc

good luck !

swaret.conf

The only changes I think I have made is to make sure to download from slackware-current. Could it be possible that the harddrive is full and causing problems with the update?

All is possible - try a ' df ' at command line to be sure

Happy birthday
