    Ug, now I am really confused...more like wary of upgrading glibc. Here is
    what my systems has on it.

    kernel2.4.18i686
    glibc2.2.5i686
    rpm4.0.4i386
    glibc-devel2.2.5i386
    glibc-common2.2.5i386

    Now, I would like to upgrade to the glibc 2.3 version. I have been told to
    use the:

    glibc-2.3.2-27.9.i686.rpm
    glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm
    glibc-debug-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm
    glibc-devel-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm
    glibc-profile-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm
    glibc-utils-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm

    According to that bugzilla thread, there will be problems...or will there
    not be problems? Do I have the right files? Do I need to update the rpm
    version as well? Lots of confusion..

    I mean, I don't remember it last summer being so difficult to upgrade the
    glibc (ok, I am a little rusty with my linux...it has been a while)

    Please, if someone can clarify the situation for me...and apparently quite a
    few other people, that would be great.

    Gracias,
    A
