Yep, I managed to do it! I'm probably the first person in history to
ever do it, too! Darn it.
Well, it all started when i couldnt run a certain linux binary under
emulation. I decided to symlink an existing file (libstdc++.so.3) to the
required file (libstdcc++.so.5). No luck. Well, seeing how it did not
work, i decided to remove the symbolic link - only to accidentally
remove the original libstdc++.so.3.
Mozilla refuses to run. Abiword refuses to run. Countless other
programs refused to run, as they required this elf lib.
Maybe a buildworld would do the trick, I thought; it was also time for
me to update my sources also. => Buildworld fails when it couldn't find
Short of deinstalling Freebsd, is there anything else i could do to get
that missing file, or at least build it from existing sources? I haven't
done anything else as stupid as this, so my filesystems/crucial files
should be intact.
Any advice welcome :)
ps: this is my first post, so i don't know if it will actually go
through. Hope it does
