Quake 3 - Linux, PPC
 
I am trying to install the Quake 3 point release for linux, on Yellow Dog 3.0, PPC.

Here is the issue I am having:

This installation doesn't support glibc-2.1 on Linux / ppc
(tried to run setup)
Please contact Id software technical support at bugs@idsoftware.com, or ttimo@idsoftware.com
The setup program seems to have failed on ppc/glibc-2.1

The program returned an error code (1)

When I do a gcc -v in command window, I get this:

Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/ppc-yellowdog-linux/3.2.2/specs
Configured with: ../configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --enable-shared --enable-threads=posix --disable-checking --with-system-zlib --enable-__cxa_atexit --host=ppc-yellowdog-linux
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.2.2 20030217 (Yellow Dog Linux 3.0 3.2.2-2a)


So it looks like I am a version up, can anyone provide any guidance?

Thank you,
Rick

try getting the latest stable version of glibc, which is 2.3.2:

http://www.gnu.org/directory/GNU/glibc.html

I believe I have 2.2.5 installed - how can I check?

When I am trying to compile the source for the newest -

[root@glibc-2.3.2]# ./configure
configure: error: you must configure in a separate build directory
[root@ glibc-2.3.2]#

Thanks,
Rick

Actually sorry my mistake but you're probably better off updating it using the updated packages provided by your distro, if they have them. Updating glibc manually isn't really a good idea unless you know what you're doing, it can be disasterous.
Look at the glibc directory name in /usr/share/docs for its version.
As for the problem, besides getting updated packages for the distro, sorry I've no idea.
