Re: [ossig] Glibc.

I had experience to upgrade the gcc and related package manually to my RH8 machine. I copy the newer version of the packages from the RH9 cds and RPM to my machine. Unfortunately, it was fails, and cause the RPM database corrupted. As what I know this problem is something related to POSIX standards.

P/S: Please dun use the rude word to open source, they are still imporving and they giving us the software free. Please do more contribution to the open source. I am also a Fedora/RH supporter.. Cheers.

Actually I just want to know have anyone have experience update it.  I mean manually upgrade(remotely).  Not upgrade using upgrade options that have when u install the new red hat using cd locally.
If there's a newer rpm, just ssh into the box, and do an rpm -Uvh

You're probably going to have to build based on a source rpm. Sorry,
can't help, don't have 7.3 systems sitting around. Read up on the 
Fedora Legacy project too - http://www.fedoralegacy.org/
This actually not about red hat 7.3 or what.  Have you experience update glibc on any red hat box?  I have ask many people that they failed update glibc on their red hat box.  Even they do rpm -Fvh for their system and follow all depedencies.

Anyway,  thanks for the URL you give me.  It's a good resource but the bad thing is I have migrate some of the software in my box to the newer package(some of the software taken from Red Hat Enterprise 3 AS-using manual upgrade).  From the URL : http://download.fedoralegacy.org/redhat/7.3/updates/SRPMS/

The glibc that provide by them still not the latest glibc and gcc is version 2.96(which I want to use version 3.3).  Thank you Colin for your help.  Anyone else have experience updating glibc on red hat?
