    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    This is the Linux version of "DLL Hell" - shared library versionitis. You might be able to install glibc v2.7 (I think you have 2.6) as well, but it is not for the faint of heart! You will have to find the appropriate version of glibc (2.7) and install that either from source or from an RPM that won't break your system. If installed from source, then you can install it to /usr/local instead of /usr, and then point your LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /usr/local/lib and/or /usr/local/lib64. That would be the safest approach since it would not affect normal software that is expecting to find the older glibc to run.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
