Linux OS: Stripped down, minimalistic and very customized (no apt-get, yum, etc)
Linux Kernel: 220.127.116.11
Current glibc version: 2.3.6
Target glibc version: 2.6.1
Attempting to install an ipk package provided by 3rd party which has a dependency on a glibc version >= 2.6 (current version is 2.3.6)
The 3rd party provided a different ipk package to upgrade glibc to 2.6.1. After executing the install of the package, all other applications that depend upon glibc report "libc.so.6: cannot handle TLS data"
Is anyone familiar with upgrading glibc on a customized Linux OS without using any sort of package manager for support?
My understanding is that glibc should be backwards compatible and upgrading it shouldn't cause issues with applications that had previously been working. Is this assumption incorrect?
I can post more information as it is requested.
symlink to the 3rd party
glibc to point
ld-2.6.1 and then attempted to re-install the package. This changed the original error (libc.so.6 cannot handle TLS data) to
