I am trying to test a newer version of a software package and get this error message when trying to launch
Error: unsupported version of GNU C Library (glibc) minimum supported version : 2.12 installed version: : 2.11
In scenarios such as this
does this mean in practical terms that I need to upgrade the OS? I am running SLES 11.4 having glibc 2.11; and SLES 12.3 is the latest currently available,
Is there a safe way to update glibc for a given enterprise type of OS such as SLES, or RHEL? Or is that asking for major problems, and is updating glibc something that should not be done manually on a production type of server running expensive licensed software packages?
