You would need to update the glib's as well. Updating the kernel wouldn't do that for you.

you just get the new rpm's. updating ANYTHING is probably just a case of getting the new rpm's. either go to rpmfind.net or install the 8.0 rpm's from your cd's.

Try this site: http://www.gnu.org/software/glibc/ or what acid said since I was looking around and was too late..

i have a recent free linux magazine dvd, which contains this file:

lincvs-1.0.0-0-glibc-2.2-i386-bin.tgz

is this the correct file, it'll save me downloading it if it is, do you recommend i update the kernel too? The file is very small (649k), so i doubt it could be it, unless it is an update, there is also an rpm equivalent which is 526k.

You could go with the latest version, usually most have changelogs so you can see what the difference is in updates with each package.
