At some point during this, libtermcap.so went missing and then nothing
would work, and I had to re-install the system.
Did you see which patch package was the last to be upgraded before you
got this error?
As far as I know, libtermcap has not been updated by any Slackware 14.2
patch package so it should not have been touched by this upgrade
If you get a unusable system again doing the same, maybe it would be
possible to use some live CD to boot and mount your harddisk partitions
and look what went wrong. Things to look for might be whether /lib64/
libtermcap.so* still exist, if /usr/lib64/libtermcap.so still exist and
is a symbolic link to /lib64/libtermcap.so.2.0.8 and both /lib64 and /usr/
lib64 are still listed in /etc/ld.so.conf. It might also be worth
examining the newest files in /var/log/packages and
