Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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:
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:
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:
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?
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
