      Thanks very much for your answer.

      I know that recompiling the kernel should not do that. It might have been
      in some of the reboots I have done becouse testing one kernel it would not
      boot properly.

      I do not have different partitions for /usr/ /opt /home, and stuff. I
      only have /boot and /

      I have checked the corrupt libraries and ... look at the output of a ls -l

      1970!! he! That is the begginning of the linux time, isn't it??

      and so on for all the corrupt libraries. I am actually loading the old kernel
      (and have not reinstalled the modules yet) so everything should be OK from that
      side.

      I cannot make a normal update or "correction¨
      of those packages using YAST becouse all the libraries associated with YAST
      are wrong.


      Is there anything I can do??

      thanks again,

      Sergio
