libc.so.6


So, I am trying to compile QT and in order to do that, I need xlib.h. In order to compile xlib.h and its other files, it requires bison, which requires glibc 2.4 (which does not exist). The file it wants is libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.4).

Help please?

Is there an easier way of installing/building QT so to speak? And if not, what to do now?

Thanks for your help in advance.

I am using Mandriva 2006.

I have another question that is making no sense to me whatsoever. Why could my system possibly say that it's missing an autoconf and automake files?

Um, now I am feeling really confused. I did as you suggested and oddly enough I got this:
Code:
bash: urpmi: command not found
Um, I have a feeling that's not good.

Don't forget to goto http://easyurpmi.zarb.org and setup all the software repositories as some of the stuff you want to install might not be on the 3 download CDs. The free download Mandriva doesn't install the development tools by default - you need to use urpmi/RPMdrake to install them. Rpmdrake is the GUI frontend to the urpmi command and its in menu->System->Configuration->Packaging
