I've uploaded to
the 2.2.1 release of glibc consisting of the files
glibc-2.2.1.tar.bz2 (also .gz)
glibc-2.2-2.2.1.diff.bz2 (also .gz)
glibc-linuxthreads-2.2.1.tar.bz2 (also .gz)
and for those updating from the last test release
The .xdelta file replaces the diff. Some patch programs might have
problems with the diff of the files which appear to be binaries. In
case you have problems get xdelta v1 and use this files (it's also
smaller and faster to download).
With glibc 2.2 being a pretty good release this one is believed to be
much better. Therefore everybody is encouraged to upgrade. But use
the binary provided by distribution makers since building a correct
library is not easy and you can easily render your system unusable.
This version was tested on
It should also work on
It should mostly work on
If you run into problem it's very likely the problem is actually the
compiler. Make sure you are running a version which is known to work
for your platform.
Changes since 2.2 include almost exclusively bug fixes. The few new
user-visible features added are explained in the NEWS file.
Report any problem using the glibcbug script. If it does not work
send the report to email@example.com. Before sending a
report read the FAQ to make sure it is not already covered. Also, do
not send any mail directly to be me. It will be immediately
