slackware & glibc upgrade


i use slackware 12.2 & i need to run an app which requires glibc-2.8. unfortunately, slackware is still on glibc-2.7

i've learned the hard way that an upgrade attempt is a serious thing. what is the best way to get this app to run?
i have compiled glibc-2.8 and stuck it in /usr/local/... i've tried adding this path to LD_PRELOAD but no workee...
anyone, help please..

Providing there is nothing in 2.8 that is required.

ln -s glibc-2.7 glibc-2.8

Nothing like that will probably work !

Which application must use glibc-2.8 ? ?
.....

It's no holiday to change 'glibc'
'glibc' is your system ...
