Glibc 2.3.x
« on: May 16, 2006, 07:18:17 pm »
I have been trying to compile glibc 2.3.2 but have not been able to do it yet. Tried the native compiler and the crosscompiler but no go yet. Does anyone have a cross compiler than can do it?
What I am trying to do is compile glibc 2.3.2 or later with --prefix=/usr/local/compat so it can be installed to an allternate location without replacing the one that pdaXrom uses (glibc 2.2.3) so not to break any of the existing apps.
With this other set of glibc under the compat directory, I want to test if I can run Debian and/or OZ packages directly on pdaXrom without using chroot. Running the app like OpenOffice might then be possible by specifying the compat directory in LD_LIBRARY_PATH inside a shell script that launches the app. If that works then many more apps will be available for pdaXrom and if there are further dependencies on other libraries, then they can be compiled against glibc 2.3.x and placed under the compat directory as well.
Not sure if this is going to work or not because glibc 2.3.x just won't compile for me

Since the OZ people have been able to compile this, would their method of compilation work under pdaXrom? Might they be able to help at all?

Hi Meanie

Have you had any success with this?

What would be the main benefits of having a new glibc?

A question for Sash and Laze, is there any plan to update pdaXrom with newer innards? I've been reading some of the slightly bitchier threads and a theme seems to suggest that pdaXrom has somewhat out of date inner workings and that OZ has somewhat more up to date workings. Is this correct, always happy to be proven wrong :-)
