Hi agn,

and thanks to all who answered! We tried several suggestions, and after 
some investigation we finally made it:
It's enough to delete /var/ld/ld.config, as we supposed - but, since the 
machine was running SVM with a mirrored root, you have to do this on 
both submirrors.
Hm, I'd supposed if I change something on one of the disks, SVM should 
detect this and update the mirror, but...


the machine is up & running without a new installation.

Keep on hackin',
