upgrading glibc. what else do i need to recompile.
this week i upgraded my glibc to 2.3.1 on a redhat 6.2 machine. this
isn't strictly a lfs question, but i think this is where somebody would
more likely know.
i was sick of not being able to run some newer software because of the
old glibc, 2.0.X? something, that it came with. i first tried 2.3.2, and
most stuff still worked, but i was getting problems compiling almost
anything. i restored a backup then tried 2.2.5, rebooted and almost
nothing would work. 2.3.1 works with almost everything. i just had
to recompile an old version of wine that i need for eudora.
anyway, i'm having trouble compiling some things that i didn't have
trouble with before. like i've compiled transcode dozens of times,
and now i can't. xvid wouldn't compile either. i restored my old
backup to a different partition, and compiled transcode, and copied
it to my newer system, and it works, so i'm looking for suggestions of
maybe what else i need to compile, upgrade or recompile to get things
working smoothly. besides what i had to upgrade to get glibc to compile.
