    how to upgrade glibc-2.3 to glibc-2.4 safely on RHEL4?


    Hi,

    Can any body help me what would be the best way to upgrade the glibc-2.3 to glibc-2.4 on RHEL3/RHEL4? As we know lots of application/daemons are dependent on glibc what would happen to them If I upgrade the glibc-2.3? dont wanna loose the services to be honest.

    I couldnt find the rpm for glibc-2.4 RHEL3/RHEL4. My system is not registered at RHN so cant use up2date/yum.

    I remember once i did upgrade this glibc forefully and got kernel panic error. so i thought its good to get some suggestions here. I would really appreciate if any boddy can help me in this regard.

    Many thanks.

    Sam

    Download the source code,
    compile and install glibc with a custom prefix.

    btw compiling glibc takes so long.
    Never make any misteaks.
