    Short answer, you don't. You would break your system. Glibc is the standard C library and you would need to rebuild a good chunk of your system against an updated version.

    If you must upgrade it, I recommend installing a more current version of RHEL. If you do not have a RHEL subscription, I would recommend moving to a RHEL clone like Scientific Linux or CentOS.

    Im currently on centos,
    And the problem is, when i run yum update it writes this:

    Error: Missing Dependency: rtld(GNU_HASH) is needed by package perl-Net-SSLeay
    Error: Missing Dependency: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.4) is needed by package perl-Compre ss-Raw-Zlib

    Im currently on centos 4.4final, i know its old, i just cant upgrade because of all the things i have there, is there a way to fix this? as you can see rtld(GNU_HASH) -> from the glibc..( I got like 40 messages, but the forum "anti spam" is alittle buggy here so it detects what i wrote as "smiles".)

    Edit: The simple thing that i need is to install X Window server, is there a special pack for EL4, because the yum groupinstall DOESNT Work, even the yum update doesnt work..

    What repositories do you have enabled?

    It looks as though you've tried to install something built for a later version of centos.

    EDIT: If you hit "Go Advanced", there's an option to disable smilies in the text.

    I need the X window server so i can use VNC server, to control my vmware..
    I dont need the GUI itself, i can run vmware-server-console and it will work without one, but I cant install it, even yum update wont work..

    And i have RPMFORGE enabled besides the normal ones.
