glibc 2.1 -> 2.2 update issue

glibc 2.1 -> 2.2 update issue

Post by Marc Ulric » Sat, 08 Sep 2001 01:03:13



I'm attempting to install kylix, but it notices that I need to upgrade
my glibc 2.1 to 2.2. I've attempted to do this, but two necessary rpm's
seem to want the other installed first before it will itself install.
What is the correct procedure for getting around this problem? Below is
a cut & paste of my rpm attempt and error messages.


error: failed dependencies:
 glibc-common = 2.2 is needed by glibc-2.2-12
 /usr/bin/getent   is needed by stunnel-3.8-4

Quote:> that I need to upgrade

Do them both at the SAME TIME:

rpm -Uvh glibc-2.2*.rpm glibc-common-2.2*.rpm

1. glibc 2.1 and glibc 2.2

Could some Linux guru out there tell me whether it is possible to have both
glibc 2.1 and 2.2 co-exist on the same system? FYI, my system is a Redhat
7.1 with all the latest patches/updates applied. The reason for asking is
that I have an application that requires the ver 2.1 glibc while I have the
2.2 glibc installed. The application is Corel WordPerfect Office 2000.
