This is what the mount command returns at that bash prompt (after
Alt+SysRq+c is pressed):


bash-3.2# mount
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755,nr_inodes=0)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,mod=1777)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620,gid=5)
/dev/sda1 on /root type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)

Cool, I did not know about tty10. I think its just Alt+F# in VMWare
though to switch terminals. I was unable to get to tty10 when at the
bash prompt though. After doing "exit" it seems to finish booting OK
and then I'm at the normal login prompt - I'm not sure if this is a
kexec/kdump kernel it puts me in or what kernel I'm presented a login
prompt for? Anyway, I'm able to get to tty10 at that point, but its
past the shared lib error messages I was interested in.

Correct, /dev/sdb1 is swap and the setting for resume. Ya know, I've
never questioned the "resume" kernel option. If its for hibernating or
suspending a system for power-saving reasons, I guess I don't need it?
Its a server, hence the reason we run SLES.

So /dev/sda1 is mounted as /root (the user) not / hence it can't find
the libraries. Unless there are directories under /root?

What does the mount command say when all back and running?

Maybe a browse through the system BIOS may add some additional
information on any power saving features that are enabled?

AFAIK anything power related should be disabled, check down in /etc/pm
and /etc/pm-profiler if they exist.
