  Please leave your irony apart and teach me one thing: what are my
alternatives to fix a broken system with a shell linked to ncurses or
other "vitally important and stable" library? It just happen I need to
get my install disks again and start over, or there is any other thing I
can do without being able to log in due to a broken default shell?

  Thanks in advance.
