    Default libs not found system broken!

    Hi
    i installed cairo-dock, played a little with plasma settings and now many shared libs are not found anymore. I can't even start x etc.
    What the heck...so what to do?
    Never had such...
    Thanks Michael

    Did you try rebooting your system and selecting Failsafe?


    Cheers!

    Michael,

    We need more information about your system. PC or laptop? Which graphics card are you using?

    Are you using 11.0, 11.1 or 11.2? Is the desktop environment " GNOME " or " KDE4 " ?

    Did you install Cairo and AWN on KDE? How did it lead up to the crash?

    What happened after you rebooted your computer?

    11.2 with xfze, kde and gnome

    i had cairo-dock via yast installed and added some icons in kde4. Starting a program didn't work missing lib. So went to /usr/lib but couldn't get back to x. Rebooting gave some missing lib messages so I did: ldconfig. Now less messages but still only black screen for x.

    Thanks really weird indeed!
    Reminds me NT4 bluescreens....
    Looks like ldconfig is completely broken...Cairo-dock was the cause?

    Insert your DVD and run System Rescue.

    You might have corrupt Data block. A file system check should fix this.

    Have you run an upgrade of any sorts?

    thanks the cd fixed around a dozen of broken packages but still some missing libs at startup like: libnss3 or so. kde gives only a black screen but i can start xfce. but then trying to launch firefox for ex. brings: XPCOM not found!
    I didn't find any option to rebuild the libs. How can I do that?

    Yes probably this is because of some sick update. already the second time. If I manage to fix the system I'll delete the updater. How disgusting to install some untested ********...complete breakdown for the second time...

    You could boot to level 3 like this and use yast to install and delete packages if you know where it all went wrong
    Boot to Level 3, then Yast and More.... - openSUSE Forums
