|I updated my system, and now I cannot make it boot any more.
Silo get stuck at boot after printing its first two letters SI.
From what I can gather from old documentation, it means that it cannot load one of its stages (I guess the third one).
I am not sure how I got into this situation, because Silo was not one of the updated packages.
According to my emerge.log the last time it was emerged was more than six months ago.
Anyway, I tried to netboot and chroot to run silo again, but the only tftpboot images I could find on the mirrors are more than 10 years old.
When I try to chroot into my system I get an error "Kernel too old".
I also tried running silo without chrooting, but it complains about glibc being too old (obviously).
I am not sure if I could make that work using some LD_LIBRARY_PATH magic, but I did not make it so far.
Is there anywhere a tftboot with a recent kernel?
Do you have any advice?
