Re: [Fedora-tools-list] upgrading glibc (from src) on fedora 2

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


for those that are interested, glibc 2.3.4 can be
built and installed from src for fedora 2 with no
problems -- however, there is a need to remove
/lib/tls before you do "make install".

otherwise once the new glibc libs and new are in
place, almost everything on the box (rm in the case of
install) tries to resolve symbols from
/lib/tls/ and fails for the GLIB_PRIVATE
errors that i reported at begining of this thread.

options used to build are:

    ../glibc-2.3.4/configure --prefix=/usr \
        --sysconfdir=/etc \
        --enable-add-ons=nptl \
        --with-tls --with-__thread \

(the bind-now was derived from glibc.spec) and built
with gcc 3.4.3.
