Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Which version of Fedora are you using. You may be so far behind the 8 ball it is time to install a newer version. Glibc is the C library that everything uses. Going from 2.5 to 2.9 you are probably using a non-supported version of the distro.
bala_adi seeing as this is in the Red Hat section and your glibc is 2.5-34
Are you running rehl 4 . If so you can NOT install the glibc-common-2.9-3.i386.rpm it WILL KILL the rhel 4 OS
1) install RHEL 5.3 ( CentOS 5.3)
2) build the new glib from source BUT DO NOT INSTALL IT IN THE SYSTEM PATH
install it to some place like
then build from source the program that needs it and point " ./configure" or the "Makefile" to
and point package config to the /usr/local/Glib-2.9-3/lib/pkgconfig
and a bunch of other things too will need to know where "/usr/local/Glib-2.9-3" is
BUT NOT THE OPERATING SYSTEM if rhel4 starts to use the new glib it WILL BREAK THINGS
