Hi Chetan,
Point your browser to , search for
libc-5.4.44 and pick a site close to you. You may want to do a 'match'
first and then pick your favourite version.

1. HELP: Libc 5.4.44 undefined symbols

I just downloaded the source to libc
and while it compiled ok, I keep getting these errors when I compile other
programs that link to the new libc:

/usr/lib/ undefined reference to `__stop___libc_subinit'
/usr/lib/ undefined reference to `__start___libc_subinit'

In fact as soon as the library gets installed, I keep getting the above
undefined reference to `__stop___libc_subinit'
undefined reference to `__start___libc_subinit'

and nothing works.  I have to reboot with an emergency diskette
and point the symbolic link back to

I ran nm -n on the new libc
and I see the symbols for the said routines,

         U __start___libc_subinit
         U __stop___libc_subinit
00016ab0 ? _init
00019cd0 t __do_global_dtors_aux
00019cd0 t gcc2_compiled.
00019d00 t fini_dummy
00019d10 T __assert_perror_fail
00019db4 T __assert_fail
00019e50 t set_progname
00019e98 T setenv

Any ideas what is wrong?  I compiled virgin sources that I got from
sunsite, followed the instructions, RTFMd, but I can't find a solution to

PS.  I checked precompiled binaries, and these don't have the problem.
     I do have binutils- installed.
