glibc issue....

hi.... firstly..... please don't jump to any conclusions.... I have successfully upgraded 2 machines so far and not had any major issues.... I read all the information about how to upgrade glibc successfully, and all ran smoothly..... unfortunately, I have a machine that rarely gets upgraded or used.... but thought it was about time it got a quick tidy up..... so firstly, I fixed and installed the new fonts, then sorted the filesystem, and all was fine.... then did "pacman -Syu --ignore glibc,curl" and it all went wrong!

after this, i have some how ended up with a broken pacman that refuses to do anything! no matter what gets pushed to pacman it gives the same error everytime...... pacman: /lib/ version `GLIBC_2.16' not found (required by /usr/lib/ … iki:usrlib -> is no help, … 3#p1167283 -> this sounds like it might be a solution, but it makes no sense to me

advice would be great..... i havent switched the machine off yet.... thanks

Can you elaborate?  What makes no sense?  That seems to be a pretty straightforward suggestion in the link.

If you have never chrooted into your system, there is a good wiki page on that.  Once you've done that simply enter the pacman command.
