Easiest thing to do might be to upgrade to redhat 9...
In general, I hesitate to manually upgrade glibc on
a production system.  Much safer to stick in a new
hard drive and install a fresh new copy of red hat.

Dear friends,
I'm not a big Linux expert so I need your help in understanding
I am a physicist and usually I analyze data. I needed to install GnomeDb

in order to interface to an Oracle database. The GnomeDB installation 
failed because glibc-2.3.2 was needed. glibc-2.3.2 installation also 
failed because I needed a gcc version > 2.96 ( I work on a RedHat 7.3).
So I installed the last gcc available. Everything was fine and gcc was 
installed under /usr/local. Then I tried to install glibc-2.3.2 but
the configure does not see the newly installed gcc but only the older
It is probably a stupid problem but I did not find any help on the gnu
site. Probably this is not the correct mailing-list to contact but in
huge list I did not find something better.

Thanks for your help
