Never Fails

Just when I need my email the most, my server gets royally horked. My friend who also uses my server asked if he could upgrade PHP there, and I said sure.

Of course, because I'm running Redhat 7.1 (really, really old), he ran into problems. He ended up "upgrading" glibc without really understanding what it is. Well, needless to say, my entire system is hosed beyond belief. Nothing works, and from what I'm reading on the web, it isn't rebootable either. It is well and truly horked. The only thing I can do at this point is try to boot from CD, mount my root filesystem and copy what config stuff I can, reinstall a new Linux (great time to upgrade I guess =/ ) and then reconfigure everything from scratch.

I can't even do anything from the command line. All I get is stuff like this...

[devnull@devnullsoftware(/)(4:34pm) ] ls
ls: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: version `GLIBC_2.1.1' not found (required by /lib/i686/libc.so.6)
ls: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: version `GLIBC_2.2.3' not found (required by /lib/i686/libc.so.6)
ls: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: version `GLIBC_2.2' not found (required by /lib/i686/libc.so.6)
[devnull@devnullsoftware(/)(4:34pm) ] ln
ln: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: version `GLIBC_2.1.1' not found (required by /lib/i686/libc.so.6)
ln: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: version `GLIBC_2.2.3' not found (required by /lib/i686/libc.so.6)
ln: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: version `GLIBC_2.2' not found (required by /lib/i686/libc.so.6)
[devnull@devnullsoftware(/)(4:34pm) ]

Ug. %&^%@#%$@# linux. This kind of crap is why Windows wins.

So, now I get to spend the next few days reconfiguring my server. And this is, of course, while I'm waiting for my interview results, and while my wife (a tax accountant) is really needing tax info in her email. *sigh*
