Trying to install ATI driver => glibc 2.2+
Hello --

This is starting to drive me crazy!
What I thought should be easy has turned into a battle.

Linux debian 2.6.26-2-686
i686 GNU/Linux

ATI Install pre-reqs:

Before attempting to install the ATI Proprietary Linux driver, the following software
must be installed:
• POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) support is required for 3D apps
• glibc version 2.2 or 2.3
• Linux kernel 2.6 or higher
• XOrg 6.8, 6.9, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 or 7.4

Check on the POSIX, kernel and Xorg
No check on glibc...

Message when installing:

You are running a x86 machine with glibc-2.1
Operating System: Debian GNU/Linux

How do I get a new version of glibc installed?

I thought it would be something like
# apt-get install glibc2.4
# apt-get -s install glibc2.*

Any and all help is appreciated.


It turns out it was just a typo in the app.
2.10 is viewed as 2.1
Got it working now, phew.
