Hello Alphas out there
I am trying to compile a new glibc, so the old one distributed with RH 5.0 seems to be broken.
Is anyone out there working on this, too? Please get in contact with me (use Mail address from signature).
+1) gcc broken -> so I installed egcs ; now works great
+2) I had to compile the new libg++ (V 2.8.0)
+3) When I try to run a previously compiled software (with egcs, C++) that accesses by Xt it gets SIGSEGV (what else ;-)) at strlen !!
Will I have to recompile X libraries too?
Working on glibc is a longtime job where you can drink a lot of coffees or hacking on another machine. I try to compile the newest I could find on ftp://ftp.gnu.org (Version is 2.0.6).
Let's make things work again. The only thing that makes me angry is that RedHat is not paying as much to me as I had to pay for their catastoph release V 5.0!
And I was quite happy with RH4.1 even if that one was not that fast.
Shame on them!!!!! for stealing our time.
