glibc is missing

Did anyone notice that the installation process of Slack 9.1 doesn't give the option to install glibc ?!

I found that while trying to configure the kernel with 'make menuconfig' and recieved an error that crt1.o is missing (this file is apart of Glibc),

I tried to RE-install the entire OS but yet again didn't see that package through the 'expert' mode of the setup process.

Anyone suffered from that problem too?

Slackware has several glibc packages. The default one is glibc-solibs, which are needed to run programs but not suitable for compiling programs.
In the /slackware/l/ directory are other glibc packages ( glibc-2.3.2-i486-1.tgz and others for 9.1) . If they don't exist on your copy of slackware you can download them from a ftp site and install them using installpkg. No need to reinstall the whole thing again.

Ye, I know it's not required, I just remembered that any installation I made the full glibc package was installed.

And ye I know it's not required to reinstall it all, I was just scared a little bit that it was missing

Anyway thanks.
