According to David Nielsen [1], installing the glibc and related RPMs
from the FC6 installation DVD/CDs fixes it.

glibc-*, ncsd from Fedora 6 does it for me too.

I downloaded the glibc-devel-2.5-3.i386.rpm glibc-2.5-3.i686.rpm glibc-headers-2.5-3.i386.rpm glibc-common-2.5-3.i386.rpm versions, mounted my development installation using my FC6 installation, chrooted /mnt/hdb4 in a gui terminal as root. Changed to the /root directory in the chrooted development installation. I then copied the files over from the user directory where the files were downloaded and then copied them to /mnt/hdb4/root in another root terminal. Then in the chrooted environment and in the /root directory, I ran rpm -Uvh --oldpackage *.rpm

I guess the new package will be awhile in coming. I know the package is extremely complex, so I'll keep the old one instead of patching and recompiling.

Oh well, it's rawhide!


Our congratulations go to a Burlington Vermont civilian employee of the
local Army National Guard base.

Not suprisingly, we also have a couple of money-saving ideas that we submit
to the Pentagon free of charge:

	(a) Don't kill anybody.
	(b) Don't build things that do.
	(c) And don't pay other people to kill anybody.

We expect annual savings to be in the billions.
