FATAL: Kernel too old


I'm on 13.37 64 with multilib 32 compatibility, but when install glibc-2.13_multilib-x86_64-7alien.txz , message appears on wine, cups or googleearth.
Only when install glibc-2.11.1_multilib-x86_64-5alien_slack13.1.txz all return to normality.

I need glib 2.13 for locations in googleearth . That I can do ?

Welcome to LQ. Better upgrade your Slackware or (easier and faster), save the files you want to keep and install a newer one.

Ok, thanks

Could I upgrade the kernel only ?

actually now is 2.6.37.6

- it is curiosity, in my old slackware , previous to 13, glibc 2.13 work well, and googleearth work with libcurl.so.4 well.

You can try and see what happens. But that won't solve your issue with the glib version.

More generally, a Slackware release contains parts checked to fit together, after a lot of tries and testing. Upgrading only part of the major components is pretty much a hit or miss endeavor. That's why, all in all, installing a new Slackware version as a whole is safer and probably less time consuming.

Yes, the truth is that I'm risking too much. Installing basic libraries without really knowing what I doing, but on my other 2 computers went well the macedonian of the librarys.

Thanks, I will see if found some else.
