You will need to update to the latest glibc by hand.
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?
No need to use "--force" to upgrade glibc (I would stronly recomended
against useing it with rpm....)
