Basesystem neede to install glibc-2.2.4-25
I'm adding needed packages so I can upgrade XFCE from 3 to 4. I'm currently using
Slackware 9 and XFCE 3 was what shipped on the ISO download. It seems logical to
upgrade all the software that would ship with the OS, but maybe I'm wrong.
When i tried to install glibc-2.2.4-25 which is a needed package, I get an error that states
"basesystem is needed by glibc-2.2.4-25"
What???? HOw could I even be using Linux without the base system installed?
Could it be that I'm not using a glibc package defined for slackware, and it is looking for a different type of system???
