It's Baaaack.

It just needed a little TLC. Even a Linux system needs to check it's hard drive every few years.. Especially after a complete system upgrade.

Thank you, Meuon!

To anyone else out there with a clue, the one remaining thing is that for some reason I'm getting

/usr/lib/libkrb5.so.3: undefined symbol: add_error_table

when attempting to run various apps. I've done a sudo aptitude reinstall libkrb53 and also tried to install various other apps that might be related to the common error libraries, and haven't had any luck so far.

Searching the error message on Google lead me to this.

Nope. Dang. Although, oddly, that might also explain another possible issue. Did a re-install of the latest e2fsprogs and am still getting the issue.

I'd be pissed off about this except that I spent a while yesterday tracking down a similar issue under Windows that involved a missing manifest file, the DLLs were in the right place, so it's proof that anything Linux can get wrong, Windows can get doubly wrong.

/lib/libcom_err.so.2 -> libcom_err.so.3


$ grep add_error_table /lib/*
Binary file /lib/libcom_err.so.2.1 matches


$ sudo rm /lib/libcom_err.so.2
$ sudo ln -s /lib/libcom_err.so.2.1 /lib/libcom_err.so.2

and it works. Something assumed compatibility between libcom_err version 2 and 3.
