I tried to upgrade Firefox to 1.0.4, my system froze and upon restart, I get this error:

Mounting at proc oops

error while loading shared libraries: libuuid.so.1 cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Since this is a critical task startup cannot continue


At this point, I'm prompted for the root password, so I can attempt to repair, but I don't know what to fix. Can someone help me out?
TIA

Boot from a LiveCD, chroot into your installation, and
Code:
emerge --oneshot e2fsprogs

Actually I'm running reiserfs. Running reiserfsck a couple of times on my partitions did not work, so I ended up just copying over the same file from another Old World box and that got me running.
Thanks

I didn't say you should check your file system, I said you should re-emerge e2fsprogs which is the package that provides that library... You didn't read my post carefully enough :wink:.

You should still emerge the package since there are still programs linked to it on your system. Having it emerged will ensure that it gets updated and the required headers are present if you need to update anything that currently links to the package.

Just for reference I had my system go tits up earlier. Just about any command started giving odd errors then on rebooting all hell broke loose. 8O

Mostly errors about libuuid.so being missing.

Thinking back to what I had left running I realised the problem . I'd was saving an ISO to disk and mistakedly put it in a directory on the root partition.

root was full.

I rebooted to the backup partition cleaned up and all was fixed.

Just shows not to always take error messages at face value.

When I saw this thread I thought "yep, that's me , what's the story?" , glad it was less dramatic.

Regards. 8)
