redhat glibc update

I am trying to upgrade my gcc version to 2.96-85 and am having trouble installing the relevant RPMs. glibc-common-2.2-12.i386 gives a dependency error "glibc < 2.2-12 incompatible with version 2.2-12".

I have had this problem on every installtion of redhat 7.0 that I have ever done when I am trying to update glibc.

I just used the --nodeps option which I know was wrong. Has anyone had the same problem and what did they d to fix it. I found a similar post from someone at the redhat support forums, but noone ever answered them.

I would like to install these updates correctly, or at least do it the right way next time if it is too late to fix it this time.

I'm going to take a stab at this. It could mean that your glibc is not current enough. I did a search at using glibc - 2.2-12 in the search box and I came up with an rpm for Red Hat 7.0. It's glibc - 2.2-12.i386.rpm . It says updates for i386. Maybe installing this rpm will solve your problem. No guarantees.

These are the packages I have installed. They are the recommended updates from redhat.

[root@lockbox ~]# rpm -qa | grep glibc
[root@lockbox ~]# rpm -qa | grep gcc
[root@lockbox ~]#
