Kernel & C Library


Hello all,

1) Does the choice of C library (i.e. glibc or uclibc) affect the kernel (and it's configuration) at compile-time? Or can a given compiled kernel be used with either library?

2) How can I tell which C library a given Linux system (I won't necessarily be using an off-the-shelf distribution) is using?

If it's not obvious, my interest is directed towards "embedded" Linux...

Cheers,
Richard.

You might have better luck in "Linux - Embedded" under "Linux - Hardware"

Next time please suggest the OP report his thread so we can move it to the Linux - Embedded forum instead. Duplicate threads are not what we want to see.

Closing the original in favour of the dupe.
