No worries. It is a nice thing to know about, since after a big shlib bump during an upgrade, if all else is broken, you can still at least get /rescue stuff and pkg-static to upgrade third party software. > >> If someone has some hints how to recompile the sources with an emergency > >> booted disk, I highly appreciate some desater advice.
