howto upgrade glibc to 2.3.2 on S9.0?

Can some one give me a detail of how to do it? I tried compiling it from source but always fails. If possible tell me what options to pass on to ./configure. Thanks in advance.

Okay, I found out that S9.1 uses glibc2.3.2. I am going to do an upgradepkg on it. But before I do that, should I bring the system to init 1?
Or I just need to quit most prog?

I used swaret( to upgrade glibc on my slack 9.0 system to 2.3.2, I think it went on OK, I didn't do anything special...just swaret --upgrade glibc .

okay thanks

but how do i make it avoid downloading from the net since i have it sitting on my harddrive?

Okay I got it
what I did was just copy the packages into /var/swaret
and run swaret --upgrade glibc

thanks. It has been upgraded, not sure whether there will be any problem since I am running a full system during upgrade.

Normally I just find out wut the name of the old-package from /var/log/packages, then do "# removepkg old-packages", "# installpkg new-packages".

As of glibs, it would be critical since it is maybe used somewhere. I think the work that should be done is to extract the package with root "/", then peform some creating of symbolic-links. That is works for the "upgradepkg", I speculate swaret could used it also ..
