Hi,

I have a 6000, and for some reason I simply cannot fathom, when I turn it on I get

" init: error cannot find libc.so.6" and it sits there, needing a reset.

Now, this raises many questions, especially why init needs a shared library, but what I really need to know is how to recover from this. I have tried installing a new kernel that drops to the command line, but it still stops on the above error.

Is there a way of interrupting the boot process? Or perhaps booting off another partition (I have an SD card).

I am pretty desparate as I have only had this for a few weeks, and I have trolled many newsgroups , so any help would be appreciated.

Regards.

Everything is linked against libc.

You have a problem. Have you been deleting symlinks in /lib (if this is even possible with your ROM)?

Not sure what you can do now, but someone posted a while back about recovering from trying to upgrade libc (and failing).

Have a search (or hope they stumble onto your post).

# ls -la /sbin/init

my /lib is mounted read-only; What did you do to hork your /lib directory ?

Have you tried a full reset ? Maybe your internal memory is corrupt somehow (but i doubt it).

P.S:
I only have had my Sl-6000 for a couple days..so i'm not that much knowledgeable yet.

Hi,

Well I fixed my problem, but I am still not sure how it got that way. I grabbed the Sharp 6000 default ROM and reflashed it. I restored a recent backup , and all is back to normal.

Oh, the name of the ROM bundle is: 20040217SL6V112.zip

in case you need to search for it.

Any thoughts on this and how it occured , would be useful for general knowledge.

Regards

MR,

I have had my SL-6000 since April, and I haven't managed to lose my Libc.

I did run into a problem with libraries after setting up the Zaurus compiler (with dev-img1.5), where some libraries were pointed to the dev-img rather than the /home/QtPalmtop/lib. But that was fixed by re-sym-linking a couple of files.

I don't reboot my Zaurus all that much, and perhaps I would have run into more problems had I rebooted. There really are very few reasons to reboot the Zaurus.

I hope this helps,

Craig...

Hi,

As a postscript, I suppose what I learned is to RESET not unplug the power. Yes, in case you are all wondering, I have had DELL laptops that have required such remedies, and it was force of habit.

Somewhat distrubing that many computers no longer have a hard OFF switch...

Hmm some software might mess up things.


Anyway if some one knows a linux distro work fine on the 6000 just let me know, until OZ gets out for the 6000.
