just updated my system to glibc v6 and have had problems rebuilding
I was basically trying to install 2.0.32 but make install failed because
I had out of date binutils, and others. Anyway. downloaded and built
glibc2.0.5 using "--prefix=/usr". This installed fine. but now binutils
and the latest ncurses aren't happy. binutils fails in install because
of "chew". This is a known bug and will be fixed I have heard, but
ncurses blows out during make with header file problems. Message is no
definition or allocation, or something like that, for type "bool" + a
few other standard systems ones ie: ssize_t. Could this be a problem
with the way I installed glibc, possibly glibC++? Has anyone seen and
solved this problem?
I suspect out of date header files and header files in different places
ie /usr/include and /usr/local/include. Is there a way of cleanly
restoring sanity, libs and header wize.
