Comment 3 Maurizio Disimino 2002-08-24 09:41:15 UTC
16:37 <tange> # ls -l /usr/lib/
16:37 <tange> ls: /usr/lib/ No such file or directory
16:37 <tange> Now that is pretty bad
16:37 <j2ee> mmh
16:37 <j2ee> sexybit sbin # ldd mtr
16:37 <j2ee> => /lib/ (0x4001d000)
16:37 <j2ee> in fact ..

according to our irc session .. you're unable to find '' and 
you've glibc -r5 installed.

So, this isn't a bug mtr-related.
This will avoid wasting time to track down a mtr-related problem.

ln -s /lib/ /usr/bin/

solved the issue. Somehow emerge glibc does not install that symlink.
