When I was checking glibc from 2005-01-30's CVS on i686, I got
modules.cache.29517 /usr/lib/gconv/gconv-modules.cache differ: byte
15, line 1
make: *** [test-iconvconfig] Error 1
[hjl@gnu-10 glibc-nptl]$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/gconv/gconv-modules.cache
I have no problems on RHEL4/x86_64, RHEL3/x86_64 nor RHEL3/ia64.
Here is the glibc bug report
This is fixed in glibc-2.3.4-2.7. Thanks.
I'm closing this. It's not really a RHEL issue since we don't support you
compiling glibc and using it with the system.
I am not sure if I understand what you were trying to say. I did
# cvs co libc
# make xcheck
and got the faulure on RHEL 4. Were you saying I shouldn't build glibc
on RHEL4? Do you have a stable Linux distribution you can recommend for
working on glibc?
RHEL4 U1 included the fix.
