glib and glibc are two different libraries.

your problem is coming from you running slackware, but slackware doesn't use rpm's natively. you can do this one of two ways, the first being the more recommended way:

Code:
rpm2tgz <rpm name>
installpkg <package>
this creates a tgz package from a rpm so you can install it without any complaints.

Code:
rpm --force --nodeps <rpm name>
this tells rpm to install files even if they conflict with other files already installed and to ignore dependencies. the reason rpm says you don't have libc.so.6 ( and everything else it complained about) is rpm uses a database to keep track of what is and what is not on your system. since slackware does not have rpm's, the database is empty, so as far as rpm knows, you have nothing.

Thanks a lot youve helped me the second time )

I am very stupid not finding this way of installing the pkg.

This was the result:

Quote:
installpkg fglrx_6_8_0-8.12.10-1.i386.tgz
Installing package fglrx_6_8_0-8.12.10-1.i386...
PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
I dont know if you know that but is now the driver installed? hmm ill restart my xorg server and hopefully see it again

Other Problem with the same error like abouth:

Quote:
slapt-get
slapt-get: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3.4' not found (required by slapt-get)
any idear ? Thanks a lot in advance .)

I've always used nvidia, so I'm not sure exactly where you need to go, but I've seen at least a few threads in the slackware section on this issue so you might want to check there.
