install latest glibc ??? and unresolved symbols
Hi, this is a 2 part question.
1) if a program has "unresolved symbol" errors when trying to use a standard runtime library, then am i correct in thinking the program is trying to call a function that does not exist within the library ? (in which case upgrading to the latest library will fix it) ???
2) im using redhat 9.0 linux. How do i install the new library (glibc) ???
i know that when it is installed, almost all programs will not run untill they are re-compilled, BUT "rpm" (the package installer) and "gcc" (the compiler) will not run :s
its a chicken and the egg paradox
im thhinking the new glibc must be used dureing the OS install, but im not sure how to do this
maybe i could create a new boot disk, replacing the glibc with the new one, (but then maybe the boot media would fail the checksum)
can any1 help ???
(and no, changing do debian is not an option :P)
