mysql GLIBC error

Hi ,

I have running with the old version of the redhat version 2.1 Derry . Currently mysql version (mysql-3.23.58-1.72) is installed and running on the server .

To take the backup of the server from data protector we install its agent on the server and getting below error after the require data protector agent successfully installed saying GLIC_2.3 not found.

[root@vfaul063 cron.d]# telnet localhost 5555
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
inet: /lib/i686/ version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by inet)
Connection closed by foreign host.

So can you please suggest me what if i will installed glibc_2.3 version ?? Will it impact the currently running mysql with GLIBC_2.2??

Below are the further detail of mysql dependencies on GLIB :

[root@vfaul063 cron.d]# rpm -qR mysql
bash >= 2
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
[root@vfaul063 cron.d]#

Glibc is one of the core packages of any Linux system and cannot be replaced.

I would recommend to stop using a Linux version that is 10 years old. Besides using old versions of programs, which in some cases cannot be upgraded, it also doesn't have any kind of support and has become a security risk.

The mysql version you mention (3.23) has also reached end-of-life a while ago (as of december 2010).

Bottom line: Upgrade to recent versions and keep them updated.
