I'm looking at RHEL 4.4 SRPM's right now. There is *NO* published
glibc-2.5 for RHEL 4 in all its flavors. You *CANNOT* expect to just
slap in a vastly newer version of glibc and have it work for all your
applications without recompiling *all* of them with the new glibc, and
the change of glibc will break the compiler itself.
I suggest you give up now, and proceed to RHEL 5 or CentOS 5 when it
comes out in a few weeks. This "update one package and everything will
be great approach" breaks badly due to massive, massive dependencies
on such core packages. No one at RedHat will want to help you with
this: mixing and matching such core packages can introduce all sorts
of nasty breakages.
If you *have* to do this, I suggest you also grab the compat-
glibc-2.3.4 package from wherever you grabbed the glibc-2.5, and
carefully work your way through the dependencies downloading other
packages as needed.
