    Sounds like /etc/fstab corruption to me. Try this:
    # mount -n /proc /proc -t proc
    # mount /dev/hda4 -t ext2 -o remount,ro /
    # mount -f /proc /proc -t proc
    If it works, you have fstab corruption
    If it doesn't, the problem lies elsewhere.

    Yes I know that mount shouldn't require all that for
    a remount. I'm probably way out on a limb on this one.
    I still can't figure out what this has to do with klibc.
