What am I missing here?

Do I need a different RPM that is RHEL based?

I am running CentOS 6.x

    You need version 2.14 and have version 2.12 installed.

  • The problem occurs when you try to install a fedora package on CentOS. How about that? Apr 22 '14 at 11:23
  • Also, that's not really CentOS. It is part of the CentOS userland installed in an OpenVZ container. What you install will be severely limited, particularly if you want to load kernel modules.

That's not the normal glibc, it probably doesn't have a .so in it at all.

Of course, your system wouldn't be running without a libc.so. Try whereis libc.so.6. And install the plain glibc.x86_64.
