glibc 2.3.2 error?


I'm trying to install glibc 2.3.2, and I get the the point where I'm doing a make check.. and I get this:

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/tigleon/Downloads/glibc-2.3.2/iconv'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `/home/tigleon/Downloads/glibc-build/elf/soinit.os', needed by `/home/tigleon/Downloads/glibc-build/libc.so'. Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/tigleon/Downloads/glibc-2.3.2/iconv'
make[1]: *** [iconv/tests] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/tigleon/Downloads/glibc-2.3.2'
make: *** [check] Error 2

What is wrong? I'm probably doing something really dumb, but I'm getting a bit frustrated so I wanted to ask if anyone would please help a newbie out

Ok, I downloaded the rpm for glibc 2.3.2, and I tried installing it, it told me it needed the glibc common. When I try installing THAT, I get:

glibc < 2.3.2 conflicts with glibc-common-2.3.2-11.9

Now what? Am I missing something?

But the thing is, they are the same version number. Here is what happened. I downloaded glibc-2.3.2-11.9.rpm. I tried installing it, and it gave me this error:

error: failed dependencies:
glibc-common = 2.3.2-11.9 is needed by glibc-2.3.2-11.9

So I downloaded glibc-common-2.3.2-11.9.rpm and tried to install that, and I got this:

error: failed dependencies:
glibc < 2.3.2 conflicts with glibc-common-2.3.2-11.9

So now what do I have to do? Since it won't let me install either, and it seems like each needs the other before I can install them.

You need to install/replace all glibc rpms simultaneously.

% rpm -Uvh glibc-2.3.2-11.9.rpm glibc-common-2.3.2-11.9.rpm

Otherwise, you get the dependency problems you're observing (you could also install them one at a time with --nodeps, but I don't recommend that).

The new glibc won't install without the new glibc-common, and you can't change the current glibc-common while the current glibc is still installed. Fortunately, rpm understands doing them all at once.

Hope this helps!

The following command will show the installed versions of glibc and glibc-common:

% rpm -q glibc glibc-common

ok, when i do that, I get:

glibc-2.2.5-16.2mdk
package glibc-common is not installed

Yet when I do this:

rpm -Uvh glibc-common-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm glibc-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm

It says this:

error: failed dependencies:
glibc = 2.2.5 is needed by locales-2.3.1.3-7mdk
glibc = 2.2.5 is needed by locales-2.3.1.3-7mdk
glibc = 2.2.5-16.2mdk is needed by glibc-devel-2.2.5-16.2mdk
glibc = 2.2.5-16.2mdk is needed by glibc-utils-2.2.5-16.2mdk

*cries* Why won't anything ever work for me? please help me again.. thanks...

I am having the exact same problem except that I get this error:

error: Failed dependencies:
glibc = 2.2.93 is needed by (installed) glibc-devel-2.2.93-5

I get this when trying the all in one rpm command.


Any suggestions?

this is simply maddening.

Why should it take so long and be so difficult to install a program. It can take hours (seeme like) to simply install a program.

I can't get installed the newest version of mplayer so I can listen to windows media broadcasts of a particular radio station and I can't get VideoLanClient to install either. I try to install the packages that are depended upon but I get another failed dependencies because the one that I am trying to install because it is needed by another one also needs another one. Is there an easier way?

I guess I needed to vent! LOL!

Installing doesn't take that long, it's the compiling bit that can take some time.
If you don't want to compile your software from source, get precompiled binaries where available, it's that plain simple.
For the glibc bit; practicly everything on your system is linked against those libraries, it's not that obvious to just upgrade it to another version without recompiling the whole lot. I'm not saying that's impossible, far from it, just want to point out that it's not that obvious.
If you're upgrading to another glibc, it can happen that practicly everything needs to be replaced with binaries that are linked against that particular library.
Maybe this can help if you can't install glibc, -common and/or -dev at the same time:
they all need each other, at least, rpm says they need each other at that specific time (the install/upgrade).
If you're feeling adventurous and you know that you can damage your build, try forcing them:
rpm -ivh --nodeps
rpm won't complain about depencies, but simply install/upgrade the binaries. Just make sure you install everything rpm was whining about (the depencies).
Don't shoot me when nothing works anymore after that, glibc is a pretty important collection of bits.

I got one of the programs I was trying to get work (mplayer) by doing the build myself. I never did get the glibc updated to the next version. If I run the rpm by using rpm -ivh --nodeps and I have the command:

$ rpm -Uvh glibc-2.3.2-11.9.rpm glibc-common-2.3.2-11.9.rpm

This should be all the required glibc libraries correct or are there more that should be installed along with these?
