Looking how to update glibc version

Postby matthes134 » 2015/01/29 16:30:54

I am trying to update my local machine to the latest glibc updates. Currently running CentOS 5.11 x86_64 Kernel 2.6.18-398.el5
My current version of the glibc file are 2.5-123 below is my repo file.

Any help would be much appreciated !!!


# CentOS-Base.repo

# The mirror system uses the connecting IP address of the client and the
# update status of each mirror to pick mirrors that are updated to and
# geographically close to the client. You should use this for CentOS updates
# unless you are manually picking other mirrors.
#
# If the mirrorlist= does not work for you, as a fall back you can try the
# remarked out baseurl= line instead.

The version you're looking for is glibc-2.5-123.el5_11.1. Try yum clean all then repeat your yum update.

I would suggest that you add a line which reads

priority=1

to the [updates] stanza, for consistency with the [base] and [extras] stanzas.
