1. Upgrading from glibc 2.1 to glibc 2.2
Using a RedHat 6.x distro, I have a lot of things updated:
kernel 2.2.19 with reiserfs
As you can see above, I have upgraded gcc from 2.9.1 ( that came with
egcs ) to gcc 2.95 ( from libc6 contrib RPM ) due to a compiler bug that
I encounered compiling qt 2.3 with "march=i686".
However, I wanted to upgrade from kde 2.1 to kde 2.1.1. Since there are
no RPMs for RedHat6.x of kde 2.1.1, I downloaded the SRPMS and try to
build the RPMs and install them. Building kdesupport went okay ( with
"rpm -bb --target=i686 kdesupport-2.1.spec" ). Now I am trying to build
kdedoc with "rpm -bb --target=i686 kdedoc-2.1.1.spec". However, the
build requires perl 5.6.0, which in turn requires glibc 2.2.
With the exception of installing a new distro, I have not done a major
glibc upgrade. So my questions are:
1) Is it safe? Will the existing apps that were compiled, static or
shared, with glibc 2.1 still work with glibc 2.2? The only information I
can find about this is on the link below:
... but it seems that the document is about a move from libc5 to libc6.
Is there a more updated version of this doc specifically for a move from
glibc 2.1 to glibc 2.2?
2) Has anyone with a RedHat 6.x distro done this, using the glibc-2.2
RPMS from rawhide?
Any help appreciated,
