Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2002-04-05 09:02:37 EST
Well, the main problem is that you are overriding i686 glibc with i386 one.
Generally there shouldn't be any reason to do that, plus there is some rpm
bug which causes /lib/i686 directory not to be removed.
I added some code to remove the files in glibc-2.2.5-25.i386.rpm, but they
were removing only the same version, not any older version, so i686 -> i386
"upgrades" would work e.g. from glibc-2.2.5-25 to glibc-2.2.5-30, but not
glibc-2.2.4-xx to gilbc-2.2.5-yy.
Should be fixed in glibc-2.2.5-31, but I'd suggest you to install the correct
architecture instead.
Comment 2 Andrew Schultz 2002-05-03 14:09:06 EDT
I got the same messages (to the best of my memory) upgrading (Alpha) from
glibc-2.2.4-24 to glibc-2.2.5-34.  I think it also complained about ld-linux.so
and libc.so being "truncated".

The problem was that libc.so.6.1 was still linked to libc.2.2.4.so.  Linking it
to libc.2.2.5.so instead fixed everything.  All the other libs were properly linked.

We had similar problems upgrading from RH 7.0 to 7.1, although I think the
problem there was sometimes ld-linux.so.2 being linked to the old (non-existent)
2.1 lib.
