Glibc 2.2.93 is incompatible with glibc-2.2.5
Last modified: 2016-11-24 09:59:15 EST
Description of Problem:
Binaries compiled with glibc-2.2.93 are binary incompatible with glibc-2.2.5 and
no compat libs are available
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile rpm using stock libs
2. Try to open on RH7.3 (glibc-2.2.5)
error relating to glinc_2_3
Compat libs should be available
glibc is backward compatible, not forward copatible. Code compiled with one
version of glibc is not guaranteed to run on systems with older glibcs. This is
also true for statically linked binaries which is NSS modules.
That's just a 'don't do it'.
