GNU C Libraries?

By iamsanchez ·
I'm installing xcdroast (cd writing software) on a Red Hat Linux 5.2 system. For reasons I cannot discuss here I cannot upgrade the OS. When I run the 'rpm -ivh filename.rpm' command it's saying that: (GLIBC_2.1)is needed by xcdroast (GLIBC_2.0)is needed by xcdroast (GLIBC_2.1)is needed by xcdroast
I did an 'rpm -q glib' and I'm running glibc-2.0.7-29 version, which is the latest version I was able to find for 5.2.

I have read about upgrading the gnu libraries from source or from binaries and it requires a whole lot to do which sounds kind of scary.

I have the glibc for 6.0. I have the feeling that if I go ahead and run the rpm for it, I'm will be messing up my system. This is an important system and it's working fine right now. I need to add the cd burning facilities though.

Can someone help.

Thank you.

Ok, just use mkisofs and cdrecord then, don't use the graphical cd burning clients.

Install mkisfs & cdrecord and there are others to try than XCDRoast!
These two are for burning through a webserver, the CGI variant dosen't even dpend on any libraries and it works.

There are many good cdr burning software for linux other than XCDRoast today.

I think you'llfind a software to use that works for you!

When I didn't get XCDRoast to work when I had all the latest and correct libs, I started usig the two web burning tools instead.
