I have the same problem on Ubuntu 10.10 (32 bit I think - can't check at the
moment as the office is closed for Christmas) with the latest updates. I had
it working fine until a few weeks ago and then I did a "git pull", which
made some changes to the openssl stuff. Since then it is broken, I cannot
even re-build the console image without that failure. I don't know how to
undo the pull so I am stuck here, too.
You can undo the pull by identtifying the place that you want to backup to and then do:
git reset --hard <commit>
Note: this will throw away any changes that you may have committed.
A less invasive way would be to setup a new branch at the commit point you want.
git branch -a
will show you what branches exist, and a * will be beside the current one.
git checkout -b branch-name <commit>
will create a new branch called "branch-name". If you do git log you'll see that HEAD is now at <commit>
You can switch back to the original branch by making sure your tree is clean (commiting any changes) and then doing
git checkout <original-branch-name>
(saved from earlier when you did the git branch -a)
