Problem with libc.6.so
Hello all, bare with me here im new to linux and this forum.
ok, im attempting to install VLC player in order to play media files,
as i am installing the rpms one by one in the terminal and one fails because it needs libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3.4) , i cant seem to find that file (i searched using google and actually found many posts of people asking for the file) so a friend of mine suggested that i link libc.so.4 (which is what i have apparently) to libc.so.6
so i whip out my linux command book..
and type in:# ln -s libc.so.4 libc.so.6
and the system tells me:
ln: `libc.so.6': File exists
now, im not sure whether this is telling me that the file already existed or that if it successfully linked the file but in short when i ls the lib directory, there is infact a file there called libc.so.6
this is good, i quietly sat and thought to myself, but alas...
...the only problem is when i go to install the rpm it greets me with the same error (regarding the dependancy) im really out of ideas now any and all input would be much appreaciated, thankyou for reading.
