version 'GLIBC_2.3' not found

Ok what am I doing? I'm trying to run samba I downloaded a clean version and tried to build it but it wouldn't for some reason (same reason it won't run?) so I got up and went to the slackware ftp (as I am running slackware). And got the current version of samba (also 2.2.7a) as a package. Wich DID install. Now I'm testing if it IS installed and can be run and I get this error:

smbd: /lib/ version 'GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by smbd)
I tried reinstalling glibc from my slackware cd (wich should have been installed by default and probably also has been...). I tried surfing abit and go through some google stuff. But no results that actually helped. They all went on about recompiling what ever it is you are having problems with. That's not an option. If it's the only way to get it to run I will dish up the problem I am having when building. But I'm a bit of a and well try to be clear or maybe give an url whatever.

Running a server with slackware 8.1 upgraded samba to the latest version it won't run because of version error in the GLIBC.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

strings /lib/ | grep GLIBC
and see if its does contain the define, if there's nothing about 2.3 then you'll need to upgrade your glib package. 2.3.1 is the newest stable version.

Fixed it

Yes thnx turned out I needed that upgrade (figured that out myself too) I just went to slackware current and searched for the glibc (of wich I did not know the location). I found it wit the l packages. So if anyone using slackware needs the package it's in the l dir and not in the d as the slackware site makes you believe
