That's "restoring from backup" that's non-trivial :PI'd take on the challenge of trying to restore just some pieces if you just point me into the direction of what exactly needs to be done. I'm not asking step-by-steps but rather something along the lines "recompile kernel - here's the link on how to start". I don't want to abuse your help, you've already been very helpful!
Thing is - I was in the process of building a new server to replace this guy but one not-so-happy day it didn't boot after unsuccesful update (that's Suse for a change). Meanwhile I wanted to keep mail and stuff running until I finish with that one. Now rebuilding this old machine would take weeks of just CPU time alone. I remember very well the process of putting everything up there in the first place.
