Problem installing glibc-2.3.4


Hi, I am trying to install glibc-2.3.4. I am getting this error message:

"Configure: error: you must configure in a seperate build directory"

I have tired doing ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/glibc-build - but it doesn't work. Could someone help please? Thank you

Cool

have you created the directory?

couldn't you find a package? - that would be better

you gotta follow the directions...

before I lay this out, you need to understand if this is done incorrectly, there is no telling what state your system will be in ( i.e. - screwed). You seem somewhat inexperienced with the glibc build, so make sure this is what you want and re-read the previous sentence....

also, do not remove your old glibc ( even after you install the new one), overwrite it with the new one when you do make install.

here are the directions:

as hilde pointed out, you might want to go with the package

Yes i have.

I download the package, and installed it fine.

My X server was stuffed up. Done xorgsetup, and now it's some what normal.

Now my sound doesn't work, and screen size is way too big.

All this problem started when i upgraded Slackware 10.0 to 10.1 using swaret. Should have just done it the normal way.

Anyway thanks for you help guyz

don't you have a backup of the old XF86Config file
-one may have been created automatically

or don't you have setup programs for sound and X?
