Aptitude broke :(

~$ aptitude
aptitude: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_iostreams.so.1.46.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Pretty sure this is entirely my fault, but I'm not sure how to fix it. Tried removing aptitude and reinstalling it but no luck
Does regular apt still work? If that works and only aptitude is broken, you can purge/remove the broken library and reinstall it. If apt is also broken, I'd recommend a live-CD boot and reinstalling the library from there.
Apt does work just fine. I actually didn't think to purge, I don't know why. When I get to work ill try that and see what happens.
The error is self explanatory. Please reinstall Boost using apt-get install boost or whatever and do a ldconfig after.

If that does not work, locate the library yourself and put the path in LD_LIBRARY_PATH to see what happens.
