Red hat linux updating rpm glibc

The RHEL disc already is a repository, it already has the /repodata/file which defines a repository.Because of GHOST: glibc vulnerability, I need to upgrade glibc but server don't have yum access because not open firewall for it.regarding the rpm, my first issue is unanswered yet: "I get the following (which is probably as expected): file /usr/bin/catchsegv from install of glibc-2.3.4-4 conflicts with file from package glibc-common-2.3.2-11.9 and a bunch of others. Another option is for you to choose the installation in a different directory structure i.e./usr/local or /opt/local by including the --prefix in the rpm install directive. (I suspect those warnings are not a big deal, but the errors look like big deals to me). Then run the same for the 2.3.1-4 version and compare the two.I need to upgrade my glibc from 2.3.2 to minimum 2.3.4 in order to install lazarus&fpc.I am a noob when it comes to such operations (well, when it's not working) I spent over 3 hours trying to figure out YUM, since I read that does it faster and without hassle.

I tried compiling but as mentioned, it failes for some reason. You can either force or use the update mode rather then the install mode of the RPM.

It seems that it can deploy a software as standalone package which doesn't rely on the external environment. So I think since "Ermine" can do it, there must be a way to use new software on old system.

You can definitely compile a new version of GLIBC and have it stored in a separate directory.

if that means doing something to yum, or installing apt or whatever, so be it, but I need it to work. You might need to upgrade your GCC installation as well.

the fact that it works on centos 4 or whatever is not helping me. what I don't get is why in the world are the sources not compiling. If you want to compile and install glibc on your own, the source with instructions can be found at

You’ll work on real projects, and get 1-on-1 mentorship from a data scientist. The RPM you downloaded from RPM find is likely the combination of common and devel. Since the version are of the 2.3.x, the existing applications should continue to work. Check the contents of the RPM you have downloaded against the combination of the Red Hat packages. the one I donwloaded contains files not present in glibc and glibc-devel and glibc-common, and the first 3 also contain files not present in the one I donwloaded (like the includes).
