I installed RedHat 7.0 ('workstation version') on
a PII recently. The initial installation was fine.
I then downloaded the errata rpms for RedHat 7.0.
Included in the errata is a set of glibc rpms, which
are now at ver 2.2-12. None of these 2.2-12 rpms will
install on my stock RH 7.0 workstation --- in all cases,
it says that I first need to have glibc 2.2 installed
on the system. (The stock RH 7.0 installation will
give you glibc 2.1.92, not 2.2.)
The question, then, is how does one upgrade glibc
to 2.2 on a stock RH 7.0 system? (I think the earlier
2.2-9 glibc errata rpms worked, but the current 2.2-12
won't work.) I do NOT want to use source rpms, either.
I want all upgrades registered with rpm.
Thanks for any help.
