updating glibc-2.3.2-11.9 to glibc-2.3.4 under rh9


hello guys,

my first post here, so tell me if I do/ask/... something stupid. I encountered some problems in installing glibc-2.3.4. I followed the Glibc Installation HOWTO written by Kai Schlachter. Everything went perfect except, that after installing a static version of the bash I couldn't overwrite the bash-file in /bin . I followed the rest of the instructions but after 'make install' I got the error message:

collect2: cannot find `ld'
make[2]: *** [/forglibc/glibc-build/math/libm.so] Error 1
make[1]: *** [math/subdir_install] Error 2
make: *** [install] Error 2

Moreover I couldn't use 'ldconfig' (no such name ...). So what ?

Thank you

y.c. bloodiestmarry

i'm not sure what she/he is doing there
trying to make an extra newer glibc in /usr/local

but she implies you are replacing glibc files ?

i'm confused !

i'm not sure how you could not be able to do that ? did you do it as root
can you remember what error message you got and is your original bash in /bin
and the new one in /usr/local/bin

i think the static bash might be exactly what you need rather than one that depends on ld
but i'm not really sure

seems like if the old stuff is in /usr
and you are putting the new stuff in /usr/local
you are going to end up with a mess but i'm not sure
the glibc guys have to be able to work on and test the new one on an older system somehow
possibly this is what is going on and you end up with 2 glibc

or possibly the tutorial is for people whose core system is /usr/local
not sure how rh9 is set up but i bet everything is in /usr

1). need to know what you are trying to accomplish, and why exactly you need a static bash

2). do you have binutils? if you type "ld" in a terminal do you have any output?

3). need to know the exact error message on your bash install. Generally, you can overwrite anything even if it's in use, but if the code is too different it may cause it to crash ( sometimes).

is there a reason you need glibc-2.3.4?
