I am the newbie to ubuntu and recently i installed ubuntu 11.04 natty Narwal on my dell laptop. The installed ubuntu works fine until today, but i tried to install file libc.so.6 in shared library and in this process i had done some mistake and that i don't know what exactly it is. Now i tried to restart my computer and every time it was not booting either through graphical or recovery mode and in both processes i got the error like this "/sbin/init: error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-1.so.3: cannot open shared object or file: No such file or directory ", even i tried with live cd still i was not able to recover from this problem.
Please give me a solution to the above problem and i don't want to reinstall ubuntu again and again.

The mistake you made was messing with libc. It is the most important system library, practically everything is compiled against it. Replacing any of glibc package components - libc.so being one of them - is a certain way to kill the system.

Hello Buntumatic, thanks for your suggestions and finally restored system using my ubuntu live cd. The main problem from this is removed all the third-party softwares from my system. This is not a difficult task and i can reinstall all my favorite applications.
