Problem after installing XFree86-4.50

I use Ubuntu 5.04 on AMD Athlon64 processor. Recently, I downloaded XFree86 version 4.50. After installing the binaries, when I executed XFree86 -autoconfig, I get the following error:

XFree86: /lib/ version `GLIBC_2.3.4' not found (required by XFree86)

So, I downloaded and installed glibc-2.3.4. But, I get the same error even now. I have installed glibc-2.3.4 in /usr/local/glibc-2.3.4.

Please help.

oh goodness -- you haven't told us exactly command for command how you did these things and where you got the packages so we can't know - so explain further
we also don't know what version of glibc you started with
show us the output from
ls -l /lib | grep libc
but slow down now and don't mess with glibc anymore
it's the core of your system and you shouldn't be played with.
we can show you how to compile a new glibc by hand like that but then you system most likely wouldn't work at all anymore and all apps even bash would complain and not work or just segfault.
it would be so easier/better to compile XFree instead or just get the right binary XFree for your system

ubuntu thats debian right
can't you use apt ?
