After make install the Glibc2.11 Ubuntu 9.10 became unuseable and unbootable

Asked by Steven Lau on 2011-06-01

   Recentery,inorder to lean android kernel devemenpent. Because Ubuntu9.10 only suport Glibc2.10 but android kernel need Glibc2.11 to use. I need to update the Glibc2.10 to 2.11. So I got the source code of Glibc2.11 form ubuntu.com.
Then I executed the 'configure', 'make' and 'make check' commands. Every thing was OK, but until I executed the 'make install' command . Ubuntu9.10 can not execute any program afer that. even the make uninstall or make clean command and all command unexecutable.
So I shutdown the computer and try to reboot the system. But it unbootable. it stoped at the ubuntu ring boot logo.

I don't what to reinstall the system. Is there another way to repair the system?

Can anyone help me, please?

Best regards!

Well, that was silly :) If the libc you installed is not built with the exact same external interface, then nothing will work -- this is known as ABI compatability, and is tricky to maintain even if you know what you are doing.

You can try unpacking the contents of either
http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/libc6
or
http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid-updates/libc6

to your target system. This *might* fix it. It depends on what you clobbered.

oops, that first link is not relevant. Cut and paste error.

Can you help with this problem?
