cannot compile glibc


Okay, I just compiled a 2.6.10-rc3 kernel and copied the include folder to my /usr directory and now I want to compile glibc. I've got the source code in /root/glibc-5=2.3.3 with the following on my command line.

Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --includedir=/usr/include/linux --enable-add-ons && make && make install
any help?

What exactly are you needing help with? Everything so far seems fine to me, have you run the command to configure without any problems?

whoops! I forgot to say that configure tells me that I need to build in another directory.

Back out of the source directory, create a build directory, cd into it & build it from there. Like so, assuming you're inside the glibc source directory:

Code:
cd ..
mkdir glibc-build
cd glibc-build
../glibc-x.x.x/configure --prefix=/usr/local --includedir=/usr/include/linux --enable-add-ons && make && make install

Thanks, I was able to get glibc configured but now when I try to make it will go for a while and then tell me that I need TLS support, what does that mean and how do I fix it?

Okay, I did some reading and I found out that TLS is part of SSL, so I have SSL installed and tried compiling again and I could configure glibc, but glibc woun't compile at all. Any help?

Maybe if you can post the section of the make that fails.

Okay, I created logs that should have the needed information in them. they're hosted at writing.com to save me time and effort: http://www.writing.com/main/books/item_id/915057

I can only see a small portion of it and that portion does not show the error.

Also when all else fails, read the instructions.
http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/man...l#Installation

I assume there is some reason you're not wanting to use the Slackware package for this?

I got it to work! all I did was copy /usr/include/openssl/tls1.h into ./glibc-2.3.3 and it now works fine! it's building right now as I type as a matter of fact!

darnit! the power at our house went out and I lost my progress on compiling glibc. so I cleaned up, untarred the files and made sure everything was ready and tried again, this time though, I get an error message:
Code:
no versions defined for typedef
and then make hangs, I can't tell you more because it doesn't tell me in what file the problem is in. any ideas?

in the slack source packages there is a script for building the
glibc package in the glibc source package you may be able to
use it to get libc compiled it may work for newer libc versions
or you may have to edit the script for the version you are building
