You will need to update to the latest glibc by hand.
Comment 2 Tim Wunder 2002-05-09 09:51:19 EDT
OK. Some quick questions, though:

When updating glibc from RPM, is it a good idea to force the update with 'rpm -Uvh --force'?

Then again, would I be better served by updating to  RedHat 7.3, and starting from a more current code base?

If so, is it feasible to update 7.0 to 7.3, or would a reinstall be recommended?
Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2002-08-08 23:10:33 EDT
No need to use "--force" to upgrade glibc (I would stronly recomended
against useing it with rpm....)
