Upgrading glibc-2.2.4 to glibc-2.3.2 on redhat 7.2
 
Hi,

I'm trying to upgrade glibc-2.2.4 to glibc-2.3.2 on redhat 7.2

but when I finally compiled gclib, it shows me this error.

../sysdeps/i386/dl-machine.h:158: error: previous declaration of 'fixup' was here

Anybody come across such a problem and fixed it, kindly share the solution.

Thank You.

Glibc is a core shared library. It is very likely that if you install glibc-2.3.2 over glibc-2.2.4 many things will break and you will end up having to reinstall Linux just to get a working system back. So save yourself the grief. Goto http://www.linuxiso.org/index.php and upgrade to Fedora core 2 or Slack 10

I can not upgrade the whole system because it has many software running and too many configuration. Moreover, Its not my personal system on which I can do whatever I want to, its a server in corporate environment.
I'm doing all the experiment on the replica of that server, and when everything is done smoothly (hopefuly), I will do the same on that server.
So upgrading a system is not an option.
