Investigating bugs without risking damage ( Everything Segfaults After lib6 -7 Upgrade)

Quite understandable, but it makes life hard to be tracking down a bug
from memory only. I would not personally expect an ld.so problem to
cause corruption, just segfaults, not that I expect that to be any
comfort.

Dear debian-user list: do you have any advice for this case? In
particular, any hints for booting up in such a way as to be certain
the root partition remains read-only (never changing it to read/write
at all)?

Thanks much. Please cc me on replies, since I am not subscribed.

Cheers,
Jonathan
