OK, problem solved. I re-installed the wrong version of the library file -- a development one instead of a stable one. Duh!

Anyway, I know I mentioned that I'd do a write up on how I solved my problems, but I'm really bad with this sort of thing. And with correspondence. And eating. And personal hygine.

My $0.02 on this:

I'm using Caldera OpenLinux 2.4. I replaced the file glibc.so.6 by linking it to libc-2.1.2.so. I'm sure that the libXt file is the same version as the old one -- I got it off my distro's CD.

Will do.

However, while I was cobbling together the write-up, I encountered another small(?) problem. When I try to start certain applications (for example, Xemacs, Nedit, etc.), at the command prompt I get a message like this:

<app name>: error in loading shared libraries: /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6: undefined symbol: <name of symbol, e.g. _Xsetlocale>

Again, this only happens with certain applications. Could this be caused by me having hard linked the library file libc.so.6 (the one which disappeared), instead of symbolically linking it?

Just a quick thank you to those who replied to my original question. Thanks to a Linux rescue floppy, some command line work, and a bit of luck I managed to recover my system.

If anyone is interested in the process I went through, please let me know and I'll do a quick write-up about it.

I've been checking out a few floppy/bootable CD based Linux distros and rescue kits. I may try one of those first, just to get my files. Then, so a full re-install.

That's a god idea. I'll have to try it.

As for the files, they're fairly pretty important. In fact, I was about to back them up when this happened.

Thanks again for your help.

Thanks for the reply ...

When I try to use the rescue disk, I get 1) an option to boot from floppy or the hard drive, and 2) (shortly thereafter) the same error message telling me the library file is missing.

Unfortunately, I don't have an extra HDD.

I don't know how it happened, but somehow the libc6 library file on my computer got zapped. Now, when I try to boot Linux I get an error message telling me that the OS cannot find that particular file, and the boot process stops.

I've tried booting with my rescue disk but that hasn't worked. Is there any way I can save my system? Or at least get my to my files and back them up? Or do I have to re-install Linux?

Thanks!
