    Missing glibc_2.3.4


    I`m trying to install an application, which during the installation I was told the following in the terminal (or something similar!)

    /lib/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3.4` not found (required by ./ntl)

    Now I tried the following in the terminal
    urpmi glibc2.3.4

    but get
    no package named glibc2.3.4

    Yes, I`m a newb when it comes to linux. I am running a fresh install of Mandriva 10.

    try this:
    Code:
    urpmq glibc
    urpmq = query urpmi database.

    then install whatever package you want with, e.g urpmi glibc-2.3.4-xxx

    I still get the same response!!

    [root@localhost root]# urpmq glibc
    glibc
    [root@localhost root]# urpmi glibc-2.3.4
    no package named glibc-2.3.4
    I`ve downloaded the rpm, but I have no idea what to do with it. Do I place the rpm file somewhere, and then open up the rpmmanager thing?

    Ok, you might not have urpmi setup properly, follow these directions to set it up. Also, doesn't urpmi glibc work?

    Now, since you have said you downloaded the rpm, just do this in the terminal as root:
    Code:
    cd /the_place_where_you_saved_the_rpm
    rpm -ivh something.rpm

    Hey Alex,

    Yeah, I tried what you suggested a few minutes ago but got more errors

    [root@localhost root]# rpm -ivh glibc-xen-2.3.5-6mdk.i586.rpm
    warning: glibc-xen-2.3.5-6mdk.i586.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 26752624error: Failed dependencies:
    glibc = 6:2.3.5-6mdk is needed by glibc-xen-2.3.5-6mdk
    I assume that means I have to install something else? Is this the normal thing. You install an rpm, but find you need to install dozens of other things too!! I can see it`s going to take me a while getting used to linux

    Welcome to rpm dependanct hell. Yes, in this case you do need to install a package called glibc, version number 6.2.3.5-6mdk, it possibly could be found on your install media, or by setting up urpmi, or by searching on rpm sites such as http://rpm.pbone.net . If you do goto pbone, select advanced search and tell it to search for Mandrake rpms.

    isn't that the same error you posted before? Install the dependanct first, then the one you tried to install.

    now it says you need ash. Try using urpmi to get this program.
