Mandrake 9.0 glibc update to v2.3
I want to add glibc v2.3 to my Mandrake 9.0 system in order to use filmgimp, which requires it. Currently, only glibc v2.2 is installed. It seems that glibc is not your typical RPM, however, considering that it is pretty much the core of the running GNU system. Consequently, I would want to update it only in failsafe single user mode (i.e. no GNU or X Windows running).
However, I have found scant documentation on how, in detail, to do the update and what pitfalls, problems, incompatibilities, etc. to expect. Please advise.
