I upgraded glibc for a reason that isn't arround anymore so i want to downgrade it again. The stupid thing is a lot of programms rely on glibc at the moment. I still have the 2.4 version on the system as the command below shows, but i'm not able to delete the 2.9 version.

# rpm -qa|grep  glibc

I've tried rpm -e glibc-2.9-2.9 but the system just tells me that a huge amount of stuff depends on glibc. So I was wondering if i can somehow set the 2.4 version to default or so and then remove the 2.9 version.

thanks in advance almightybob
