After screwing up my Debian install, I was wondering if someone could just quickly run:

ls -al /

On their Debian server, so I can compare it with mine. Much appreciated!

Hmm, lib64 -> /lib may do the trick. Will let you know. –  nbolton Oct 22 '09 at 21:09

That's strange, no sym links? –  nbolton Oct 22 '09 at 19:37
    
i have one symlink for lib64, but other than that nope... –  Jon Oct 22 '09 at 19:45
    
Well, that was from my Linode, but I'm pretty sure the only difference between their debian distro and a standard one is the kernel. –  Matthew Thiel Oct 22 '09 at 19:57
