I all ready have the highest version on tzdata but it conflicts with it so I cant install glibc....

They did not tell us anything or did he agree to that we were not allowed to upgrade software and packages on our dedicated server...

It is very impotent that I get glibc 2.3 installed...

Glibc 2.3.2 should be installed with tzdata-2003a-2.noarch.rpm. Do rpm -q to find out what you have, and dl a copy of that rpm if necessary.

You're allowed to install anything you want, but you've paid with a support contract from RedHat that says you can only install updates which are authorized for your version of their distro. While these RPMs are installed, they won't support you, so you've basically wasted your money.

Well, RHEL is a commerical product. The binaries aren't free to redistribute. In order to legally install it you have to pay RedHat $$$.

Anyway, I've done some research, and I think tzdata was split out after RH9. So either do "rpm -e tzdata" and then try installing the glibc stuff, or install the following RPMs from rawhide:

glibc-2.3.2-71.i686.rpm
glibc-common-2.3.2-71.i386.rpm
glibc-devel-2.3.2-71.i386.rpm
tzdata-2003a-2.noarch.rpm

The tzdata rpm version might be old. You can use a newer version of that.

If you can't find those exact versions of the actual glibc RPMs, you may or may not be able to get away with a newer version. But those versions are rawhide RPMs known to work OK with RHEL. The next version I'd try would be the stuff from Fedora Cora 1 (http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...s/Fedora/RPMS/), because it's closest in age to what you have and theoretically less likely to cause breakage.
