The entire glibc build must be installed as a collection, you cannot
install just libc.so.6.
I strongly suggest against upgrading your installed glibc on RHEL 7
unless you are a very experienced developer and packager. You might
break your system completely if you aren't careful.
The simplest thing to do actually is to start with a RHEL 7 VM and
then install the latest glibc RPM from Fedora 22, which is glibc-2.21
based. That way you don't have to compile and build anything and you
can use a pre-tested RPM for glibc that closely matches what you need.
You can get the builds for x86_64 and i686 here:
