well -- I got into some similar situation a week ago after somewhat
extensive upgrade + install party ;-) (prelink etc) -- just go
into terminal and try to run smth like


;-) would it segfault or not? also do 'lsmod' and see if you've got any
besides ipv6

I am not sure how I did it but now I can't load any module, most of the
programs crash with segfault... can't ssh into etc... can't load
usbserial module to try to setup serial connection to get into the beast
from a computer -- I guess the only escape is to reflash but have
no time at the moment to set it up for use again and it remains to work
as a phone so I postponed for now. Actually I think battery life got
much better without all the useful stuff laying around in memory and
interfacing to all cool hardware ;-)
