When I try to install something all I get it that libelf is missing.
I've downloaded the rpms from the fedora ftp site, but can't seem to
open them with archive manager.
Probably because libelf is missing.
How can I extract the wholesome goodness from the rpms to repair
problem (I'm just going to pop the libs into whereever they should be
and run ldconfig)?
Or what I normally do when I do this (and playing with disk driver debugging
is a good way to do it) is to take another box with the same FC release and do
mount USB stick
cp missing libraries from /lib /usr/lib ..
umount USB stick
mount on broken box
(or add the path to /etc/ld.so.preload)
