A problem in the GLIBC-2.3.2 installing
 
Yesterday I try to install the GLIBC-2.3.2 in my computer since that some software I tried need it.


I went throught the configure step and met some problem when try to make

After I typed

#../glibc-2.3.2/configure ******

and

#make

the system told me that :


make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.


Does anyone know why?

PS:
I have tried various arguments when doing configure, such as

../glibc-2.3.2/configure --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu --target=i686-pc-linux-gnu

or

../glibc-2.3.2/configure --prefix=/tools --disable-profile --enable-add-ons --with-headers=/tools/include --with-tils=/tools/bin --without-gd

you if you dont specify the location of the mafefile when you run make, make assumes it is in the current working directory.
from the way you called configure, it doeesnt look like your working directory is the glibc source directory.

forgive me, but upgrading glibc is a big thing,, are you SURE you know what you are doing, and what the concequences will be ?

isnt glibc the main c library ?
by replacing it you will have to re-compile almost every program you have installed .

wouldnt it be a much better idea just to re-compile the program that was linked againsed that glibc to your version of glibc (whatever that is)

Thanks for your replying.
I indeed was not aware of that "by replacing it you will have to re-compile almost every program you have installed ."

So, as your suggustion, how can I "re-compile the program that was linked againsed that glibc to your version of glibc (whatever that is)"???

Thanks again!!!!

what program are you trying to install ???
post a link to its homepage.

is there source code available ?

This is the error information:

error: failed dependencies:
libpthread.so.0(GLIBC_2.3.2) is needed by qterm-0.3.4-1

i assume you are trying to install via the RPM method ?
run the following command for me 'rpm -q glibc'
what does it say ?

agg, ive found the homepage of the qterm program.
http://qterm.sourceforge.net/index.html

first of all, are youaware that the latest stable version of the qterm program is version 0.2.0.X.
the version you are trying to install is an unstable Development release... which is probably why it uses the very latest version of glibc.
look... http://qterm.sourceforge.net/download.html

you have 2 options...
either install the stable version via binary rpm for your your distro from the downloads page, OR if you want to try out the unstable developemnt release, download the source code and compile it yourself (the tar package from the downloads page)

this should sort out all your problems. let me know if not.

I see and I will try under your advise. Thanks!
