Slackware 8.1 and GLIBC 2.3
 
When I try to run MySQL Control Center it complains that it can't find GLIBC 2.3 (which this program needs). I have installed Slackware 8.1 and according to www.slackware.com this version should contain "glibc-2.3.1". Are there different versions of 8.1? Is my error just an configuration error? How can I find out if 2.3 is installed (a search for "glibc" just found files with 2.2.x)?

If I need to install/upgrade to 2.3, is there any good and not to complicated information which can help me with the upgrade? Should I upgrade Slackware or just GLIBC?

mine has 2.2.5 (slackware-current as of Sept. 2002), I don't remember upgrading it since then. you can find 2.2.3 at GNU ftp server ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/pub/gnu/glibc/
just be warned cross your fingers you might need as well to downgrade libc, there are some caveats to it, there were a couple of threads about glibc bitching, search for them.
