SWARET upgrade missing shared libraries libc.so.6
 
Swaret upgraded everything on my machine and now when I boot the machine I get the error:
/sbin/agetty :error while loading shared libraries : libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

I have booted to disk 1 fo Slackware 10.1 and am trying to figure out how I can access my hard drive to look at the swaret log file and fix this problem. I tried using fdisk to see what drive root is on but I am unable to display any drive info. I just get the error unable to open.
I saw this article from a previous post: http://rlworkman.net/howtos/glibc-recovery
and thought I could use it to fix the problem I am having but I don't know where to "mount" the drive if I can't see where root is loaded.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

If you don't know how to use the recovery document, then reinstall your system.

try fdisk -l /dev/hda or
fdisk -l /dev/sda

sata disks are usually the sd type

depending on how many drives you have, could be hdb/sdb hdc/sdc etc
hopefully the returned info will be enough to get you back on track.

The document is very helpfull, I just can't figure out where to mount root. When I use fdisk I am not able to access hda or sda to see if that is where root is. Is there a way to find where root is located at?

RAID Controller
 
If your drives were set up as raid then your boot disk must be able to recognize the raid and load the proper drivers. If not then you will not see your drives. The dev for raids are usually located under the /dev/rd/ folder and something like c0d0 for raid 1.

Yes your right, what I did was boot entering raid.s and then I had the drivers to work. Thanks.
