#954 closed task (fixed)

Migrate to GLIBC

Reported by: William Harrington Owned by: clfs-commits@…
Priority: critical Milestone: CLFS Standard 3.0
Component: BOOK Version: CLFS Standard GIT
Keywords: Cc: berzerkula@…, jonathan@…


EGLIBC trunk is closed and 2_19 will be the last release.

It is advised that we use Glibc 2.19 and any issues we have go to the Glibc support list.

Moving to Glibc 2.19 we can pull the tarball from gnu servers and not host our own local copy that we did with eglibc.

If users require Eglibc for any of the mentioned items that are not resolved as in the article linked above, then they should check out Eglibc 2_19 branch.

I suggest that we move the book to GLIBC 2.19.

Took this fix from LFS...

The tzselect script has been changed to use "pwd" instead of hard-coding /usr/share/zoneinfo, but it does not work properly. This can be fixed with:

sed -i 's/\\$$(pwd)/`pwd`/' timezone/Makefile
