I now have a spare PI B as my fish tank sprang a big leak down the front corner seam at 20:30 odd on a Sunday night 3 weeks ago which after 1 hour of fighting it left 1" or water in the bottom - had no option but to humanely kill the fish
So, with my old fish tank cam Pi, I used slackpkg to upgrade all (new Glibc etc) for a bit of real learning
The first time it ran, something happened when I wasn't watching, and awk went AWOL with some sort of missing library - that foobarrred the whole install; I FTP'ed an awk binary from one of my other Pi's to get it going again. It did come back up, but system was in such a poor state I started again today from an image backup.
All seemed to run smoothly and installed in an orderly fashion. But after reboot, slackpage squinnied about a missing lib. It turns out curl seems to have been built against usr/lib/libsasl2.so.2.0.23 but there is no symlink to the latest lib. Again, FTP'ing the libs from another Pi sorted that out.
All seems to be running fine now, except 'free'. I can't work this one out:
Code: Select all
total used free shared buff/cache available
Mem: 493832 19900 347360 388 126572 382376
Just utter nonsense!
Anyone any ideas?
