Can anyone there help me with compilation problems I'm running into with

I don't know a lot either, but I have compiled it and it is what I am currently running, so post your specific problems.

Note: in case you haven't been warned, that installing GLibC from source can break your system. So, a first question is: have you done this before?

First, you need to install: "binutils".  I have version 2.16.1.

I used this configure command:

../glibc-2.3.6/configure --prefix=/usr --disable-profile \
--enable-add-ons=nptl --with-tls --with-__thread --without-cvs \
--libexecdir=/usr/lib/glibc --enable-__cxa_atexit

although I must admit that I don't know 100% what it all means.

The above would be for nptl [Native Posix Thread Library] and not the older Linux Threads.

If you are concerned about size of the executable and don't need to run old stuff you might want to add:


which will tell it not to build stuff for Kernel 2.4.x compatibility.
