Wink happy new year :D i have just installed centos 5.5 on my vmware, may i upgrade glibc?


Happy new year

i have just installed centos 5.5 on my vmware to test my server,i found that i need nasm x64 to compile my assembly code,the yum database only has 0.98 version which does not support 64bit.

the nasm version 2(rpm from offcial site) requires glibc 2.7, i know its a core component, but is there a way to upgrade it without break system? or there is some alternative to centos(based on rhel)?

thanks for your time

Welcome to LQ, and a happy new year to you too.

No, glibc cannot be changed. But you can just use an rpm for "el5" :
'rpmbuild -bb nasm.spec' will create an rpm in one minute.

Example : nasm-2.07-3.fc12.src.rpm ( source code SRC.RPM.)
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...3.fc12.src.rpm

The result, nasm-2.07-3sl55.x86_64.rpm is here
https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B7S25...CKGvwpAG&hl=en

Or created from nasm-2.09.04-1.fc15.src.rpm
> > nasm-2.09.04-1sl55.x86_64.rpm
https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B7S25...CPT4pvIG&hl=en
