glibc 2.1.97 / manual @refs and installation over glibc-2.1.3


  This might be some tool version thing or some other mistake by me,
but the installation of  glibc-2.1.97 with linuxthreads failed in
two things:

1. linuxthreads.texi has some invalid links: @pxref{Range of Type} and
@ref{Signal Handling}.  I do not know the correct ones, I just erased them
or looked up the next closest thing - so do not apply this patch:

2. During installation, after iconvdata has been installed, my old
glibc-2.1.3 does not like the new iconv files any more.  For example gawk,
xterm and emacs die on assertion, I guess this was something like
outbufstart == NULL, but cannot be sure as I forgot to grab it. My
solution was to 'mv /usr/lib/gconv /usr/lib/temp.gconv' as soon as
gconvdata was installed, and then move it back after rest if the
installation completes - as it needs gawk on the texinfo manuals.

  Other than these, make check seemed to pass and the system with
glibc-2.1.97 works fine.


gcc version 2.95.2 19991024 (release)
makeinfo (GNU texinfo) 4.0
GNU Awk 3.0.3
devfs with no compatibility links

450 MHz AMD K6-3, underclocked to 416 MHz for stability with
Asus P/I-P55T2P4 and 83MHz bus.
64MB ram

Otherwise the system is a result of natural hardware and software
evolution since 1992, most of the tools compiled from source, so the fault
may be my setup and tools.

Hope this help anyone,
