tlug: Re: libwcsmbs

I installed a libwcsmbs package off the ftp server and it
killed my system.  On boot it (init?) would lock up saying something
about an undefined variable related to libwcsmbs.  This may portray my
lack of experience in the shared library portion of linux, but as many
times as I tried to use the rescue disk to go in and remove the libwcsmbs
files from /lib, /usr/lib, and some X11R6/lib directory, it popped up
again and I ended up reinstalling RH6.0

I am baffoozled.  Any help?
