I'm a web developer by trade (6+ years of LAMP/HTML/CSS/JS), a musician by education (BM Music Composition, University of North Texas 2006) and a writer (evenoneword.com, 2 books, three comics, and a webcomic) by passion.

I attempt to help people when I can, and I do my best to make life easier for those around me.

Unfortunately, sometimes I can't help but make life a little harder first: Yes, there is a spec. Yes, you should learn it and follow it. No, I won't write your answer for you.

comment Wrong libc6 version in Debian Squeeze — can I go back?
I've opened this open in chat, feel free to answer there, but you've already helped me a great deal. It looks like all the "expected" solutions are not working, my debian install appears to be fully hosed. I may have no choice but to start with a fresh VM if I want to resolve this, but thanks for your help!

comment Wrong libc6 version in Debian Squeeze — can I go back?
Here's the wall I'm hitting with apt: if I do apt-get libc6=2.11.3-2 it tells me I need the older libc-bin (libc6-i686). If I try to get it, it tells me it pre-depends on the earlier libc6. Trying to do both in one go is also a fail, says both messages. I'm guessing I have no choice but to force a downgrade with dpkg and go from there?

Just got in, I'm going to try that and will get back to you. Thanks again!

Sounds interesting. This is on a server, but it's a VM so I have access to the console. I was hoping apt-get had something like this but the only option seems to be to do a remove and then install, but that kills everything that libc6 uses and puts me in an unrecoverable state. Thanks for the tip, I'll come back when I've given it a full shot.

The current sources.list is using only the accepted squeeze versions. Looking at previous versions of the file in rsync, it looks like some completely different experimental sources were being used. Using synaptic, can I actually go back a version, though? It seems like I can only force new versions.

just attempted uninstalling glibc and it was not handled gracefully by apt, had to restore from clone. May just have to wait until wheezy is stable and get everything back on the same level, or potentially just upstream the compilers for now and hope for the best.

If it continues to work, I'll put an answer up for it detailing all my steps.

We tried, no dice. Still didn't pair. I think we may have found a solution, hate to answer my own question but it might work. Got it to pair, but it's still behaving erratically (randomly stops responding, etc)
