Unhappy glib 2.4.3 not found, required for -bash


I used slapt-get to do an update to the system, and when it got to glib, it failed to upgrade. Eventually the ssh stopped working and I had to reboot the server, only when I try to log into the console as root now it gives me this error.

glib 2.4.3 not found, required for -bash


I dont know how to fix it without logging in, and I cant log in without it being fixed.







Help?

I haven't tried this, but if you have the glib package already downloaded to your hard disk... Try booting the box with your Slackware CD/DVD, mounting your hard disk (to /mnt/hd for example), change the root (e.g. chroot /mnt/hd) and then install/update the glib package.

I tried this and the hard disk wont mount. It shows HDA as the cdrom but thats it. Its on a scsi controller, and if I use an ubuntu boot cd it shows sda1 and sda2 but they arent mountable.

Which kernel did you select from the CD when you first installed? That should be the one to use this time when you boot with the installation CD.
