Wine/glibc failed dependencies


I have a problem installing Wine (actually upgrading glibc, but let's start with the beginning :-)). I downloaded the latest i686.rpm file and tried to install it.
It gave an error:
Failed dependencies:
glibc >= 2.3.2-27.9.7 is needed by wine-20050211.1rh9winehq

So i tried to upgrade glibc to this version. I downloaded glibc-2.3.2-27.97.i686.rpm, glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.7.i686.rpm and glibc-devel-2.3.2-27.9.7.i368.rpm (I didn't find an rpm for the i686 structure. Can i use the x86_64.rpms, or are those only for the athlon 64?)
and tried to instal it (rpm -Uvh glibc-2.3.2-27.97.i686.rpm glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.7.i686.rpm glibc-devel-2.3.2-27.9.7.i368.rpm)
This also gave an error:
Failed dependencies:
glibc = 2.3.2-11.9 is needed by...
glibc-devel = 2.3.2-11.9 is needed by...

So I downloaded glibc-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm, glibc-common-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm and glibc-devel-2.3.2-11.9.i368.rpm (again, no rpms for the i686 structure). I installed it and it worked. I, again tried to upgrade it to version 27.9.7.
Again, it gave me an error:
Failed dependencies
glibc = 2.3.2-11.9 is needed by (installed) glibc-debug-2.3.2-11.9
glibc = 2.3.2-11.9 is needed by (installed) glibc-utils-2.3.2-11.9
glibc-devel = 2.3.2-11.9 is needed by (installed) glibc-debug-2.3.2-11.9
glibc-devel = 2.3.2-11.9 is needed by (installed) nptl-devel-2.3.2-11.9

I tried to install the 2.3.2-11.9 version again (maybe it didn't install correct), but i received a message that it already was installed. Now I'm out of ideas. Anyone who knows what the problem is?

You just have to update all the packages with failed dependencies. Or is there a particular reason for you not to update nptl-devel?

So, get new versions of nptl-devel and glibc-debug. Then add them to your
rpm -Uvh ....

Also I want to mention tools called apt and synaptic, they save you a lot trouble and carries you out of the 'rpm dependency hell'.

And about the packages i386 will work just fine, which I believe 64-bit versions will not do.

glibc is the core library everything is linked to and includes even the linker itself
the only way to upgrade it is to use apt or something and esentially upgrade everything
it would be easier to just compile your own new wine
