Headaches updating glibc-Slackware 9
I've been trying all night to update glibc to version 2.3.3, as apparently Firefox will not install without this support.
I use the following command from the directory /root/glibc-build:
../glibc-2.3.3/configure --prefix=/usr --disable-profile --enable-add-ons=linuxthreads --libexecdir=/usr/lib --with-headers=/usr/include --without-cvs
Configuration appears to go fine, but upon typing "make," compilation crashes with:
/usr/include/linux/limits.h:124:26: no include path in which to find limits.h
make: *** [/root/glibc-build/bits/stdio_lim.st] Error 1
make: Leaving directory '/root/glibc-2.3.3'
make: *** [all] Error 2
Note that this is the first time I have ever attempted anything regarding updating gcc libraries or anything of the sort, so it isn't enough to ask me "do you have the dependency foo," you'll probably have to explain to me where to get it or, more importantly, how to find out if I have it or not. I hear that glibc is dependency hell, but this is a fresh install of Slackware with the "full" install option, so I can't see me not having anything.
Still, whatever it takes to make this work. Thanks a bunch.
