glibc Dependency Issue
I am attempting to install glibc-2.5.34.i386.rpm on RHEL 5 (necessary in order to install gcc, which in turn is needed to install Apache server). I mounted the RHEL 5 iso to /mnt and copied over the relevant RPM files to a separate directory). When I run rpm -ivh glibc-2.5-34.i386.rpm I am getting a dependency error stating the following:
Btw, I cannot use yum due to network connectivity issues.
Welcome to LQ.
Touching the glibc packages manually isn't recommended.
Most often applies for a reinstall of the OS.
But if you are lucky, these should be usable ( latast updates.)
The update mirror ( EL5, free version = CentOS 5.3 )
Apache = httpd-2.2.3-22.el5.centos.1.i386.rpm is also in 'update'.
glibc is impossible to install unless you do it with a rescue CD; and even then it is not recommended. glibc is the heart of the OS. It is the general C libraries. Like 90% of all programs depend on it. It is better to just upgrade to OS.
