Hi,

In the CVS (http://www.linux-mips.org/cvsweb/) I find two directories - libc and libc-devel. Can somebody roughly describe - why are there two, and what is the
difference?

If I need a stable (and reasonably recent) libc which one should I use?
(Or should I use the glibc kept in ftp.gnu.org?)

-Saravanan



Please correct me if I am wrong.
(This is just for the record and for the benefit of the late comers.)

When people say glibc CVS they mean the one at http://sources.redhat.com/glibc/
and http://sources.redhat.com/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/libc/?cvsroot=glibc.
[Not the one at http://www.linux-mips.org/cvsweb/].
