Our IT guy was out so I would have to call our external IT, who hold the contracts with Dell, this would have cost us, and its *only* a development machine so the cost was not considered valid. They just wanted to reinstall.
Got it sorted using an Xbuntu live cd and reset the libc.so.6 sym link.

At the end of the money I always have some month left.
