what are the issues with replacing glibc-2.8-8.x86_64 on FC9 with glibc-2.14.1
This is my first post.
I have a production system that is frozen at Fedora Core 9. I have a need to upgrade to glibc-2.14.1. I am considering building the new glibc from source on a development system with the same software stack and testing there. Is this a realistic goal? Will the old system even boot after the upgrade? What are the pitfalls? Is there a better approach to solving the problem?
