I've fixed now the dynamic linker in glibc 2.2. With Ulf's binutils
(I don't know if he made the version available yet - and AFAIK the
version build glibc but not the kernel), I'm now able to build the
whole glibc (the only missing patch is appended - I'll fix this
I would appreciate if you could build glibc and test it really hard.
I do expect problems in the following areas:
- definitions don't match between kernel and glibc. I've used the
latest 2.3 release. The glibc will not run with Linux 2.0.x.
- Bugs in glibc itself. glibc 2.2 is not released yet. I strongly
advise to use a chroot environment for testing. Don't install the
CVS version yet, it contains lots of new and untested code in
comparison with glibc 2.1.
- binutils (use Ulf's version) and compiler (egcs 1.1.2 get internal
compiler errors in some cases). I'm trying to get gcc 2.96 CVS
running but do appreciate your help in testing and fixing.
Btw. you can get access the CVS archive of glibc via
Please report bugs and problems either to libc-alpha or to directly to
To build glibc I advise to use a separate build directory and run
/sources/glibc-2.2/configure --prefix=/somewhere --enable-add-ons \
This work on glibc 2.2 wouldn't be possible without Ulf fixing
binutils and advise from Ralf. Thanks a lot!
