Description of problem:
I run Fedora 14 with 2.6.38 kernel form koji.
Trying to install VirtualBox 4.0.6 build 71344 I get following error
scripts/basic/fixdep: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by scripts/basic/fixdep)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This problem occurs with both kernel-126.96.36.199-17.fc15.x86_64 and kernel-188.8.131.52-18.fc15.x86_64
I do NOT have any problem with kernel-184.108.40.206-15.rc1.fc15.x86_64 and I can install and run VirtualBox
Just try to install VirtualBox with kernel 220.127.116.11-17 or 18.104.22.168-18
I am not alone to have this problem.
Looking at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=57 and http://www.gnu.org/s/libc/ it seems last version of glibc is 2.13 and there is no 2.14 available.
There is a fix for fedora 14 - instead of using the newer kernel rpm - download the src.rpm and rpmbuild it on fedora 14 - that will use the fedora 14 toolchain.
I tested this and it works fine.
I do not know if this problem exists on fedora 15 or only because of using a f15 built kernel on f14 - hopefully someone can test this.
Really this is NOT a fedora 14 bug - if it is found to be a problem on fedora 15 it should be moved there and not 14.
In the meantime - i think this is NOTABUG.
