Hi, I am posting this in desperation. I can't get this to work

I am using Fedora Core 5, surfing along and installing RPMs. I received the following message while trying to open some programs

unknown exit code

confused by this I ignored it, until more programs started doing it. I rebooted and received this message

sh > error while loading shared libraries: libpam.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I receive this error message during boot as well, so I cannot access FC5. My current tools are Puppy Linux 2.0 and Fedora Core 5 Recovery console

Please help!

(P.S. I can't use yum and I can't seem to get RPMs to work right in the recovery console)

Looks like one of the abrupt shutdowns or something has corrupted the file system or something.

Ok..do you have a any file by the name of libpam.xxx in /usr/lib directory?

If no..then there is some real problem.i would advise you to take backup of the data and re-install FC5!!

try search for libpam.so.x in your /lib , /usr/lib , /usr/share/lib etc
or simply try
CODE
whereis libpam.*
or
find / -name "libpam.so.*"

if u find it somewhere try making softlinks of that file in /lib , /usr/lib etc like if u get the libpam.so.0 in /usr/lib then try
CODE
ln -s /usr/lib/libpam.so.0 /lib

this is to make sure that the program which wants the library gets it at the right place smile.gif
otherwise you may try searching for libpam.so.0 at http://rpmfind.net and then install the package that provides it..

Like Hemant said, I would go with reinstalling - It could be indicative of a bigger problem.
