Can someone tell me how to create /var/lib?
Im upgrading newcamd and my image (black cannon) does not have this directory. I think its required for updating libcrypto.so.0.9.7?
Any advice?

once logged into DB by telnet..

´cd´ is used for changing directory

find out where you are by typing ´pwd´

when you first login u will prob be at

/

do ´ls´to list all the directories at this path ...

eg, when u do it you will see

/var /hdd /bin

an lots of others.

change to , eg, /bin , by typing

cd bin

... then do ´pwd´and it should display

/bin

to make a new directory type

mkdir new

now there is a new directory called ´new´

I will write a quick linux guide for DB users when time allows.

so, in short, all u must type is mkdir /var/lib :-)
