is there a good and clean way of upgrading glibc on a running system via
RPM? Fedora, RedHat and SuSE ship a "glibc_post_install.c" file that seems
to take care of this, Slackware just does some linking/copying, like first
putting everything /lib/incoming, then ldconfig'ing links from /lib to
/lib/incoming, then copying it to /lib, then doing ldconfig again.
The crucial part is always the actual swapping, i.e. re-setting the links.
I'm wondering whether someone has to offer some insight on how to switch in
a good manner a C library? :-)
Thanks alot in advance,
P. S. For @rpm5, I'm still maintaining my todo list (i.e., rpm5 make check
on Arch Linux, more docs and web site twiddeling), but won't get to work on
it for at least two weaks, just to let you know. Work has been raining on me
like hell the last days, so it'll be stalled. Sorry.
