Summary: The GNU libc libraries
The glibc package contains standard libraries which are used by
multiple programs on the system. In order to save disk space and
memory, as well as to make upgrading easier, common system code is
kept in one place and shared between programs. This particular package
contains the most important sets of shared libraries: the standard C
library and the standard math library. Without these two libraries, a
Linux system will not function.  The glibc package also contains
national language (locale) support.

This package now also provides ldconfig which was package seperately in
the past. Ldconfig is a basic system program which determines run-time
link bindings between and shared libraries. Ldconfig scans a running
system and sets up the symbolic links that are used to load shared
libraries properly. It also creates a cache (/etc/ which
speeds the loading of programs which use shared libraries.

  + Revision: 338006
  - Add fixes from glibc cvs that deals with following upstream tickets:
    bz7067, bz9741, bz6545, bz9750, bz9694, bz7040. Also another
    miscellaneous fixes included (patches expm1-error, SHM_EXEC,
    _nss_dns_gethostbyaddr2_r-buffer-aligment bug-hsearch1).
  - Avoid backup file created with patch glibc-2.9-fedora_upstream_fixes.patch to
    end up in glibc-i18ndata package.
* Mon Jan 19 2009 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 6:2.9-0.20081113.1mnb2
  + Revision: 331180
  - Additional fix on top of fedora_upstream_fixes added from glibc cvs to
    avoid local plt check error (make check).
  - Removed some uneeded old patches.
  - Update glibc to version 2.9 (20081113).
  - Unfuzz following patches:
  - Remove uneeded patch glibc-2.1.95-string2-pointer-arith.patch, there is no
    need to force cast to char * for point arithmetic, as explicitely the gcc
    extension for void * pointer arithmetic is being used.
  - Removed patches already applied:
  - Apply 'hot fixes' from fedora/upstream and workaround for glibc bz7060
* Sat Aug 30 2008 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 6:2.8-1.20080520.5mnb2
  + Revision: 277480
  - Handle properly upgrades from with relative
    include path after previous commit.
    + Helio Chissini de Castro <>
      - Lack of relative path on is breaking usage of ldconfig -r. Reviewed by Herton
    + Per √ėyvind Karlsen <>
      - handle libraries in non-standard locations with config in /etc/
      - fix file trigger filter match for lib64
* Thu Jul 03 2008 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 6:2.8-1.20080520.4mnb2
  + Revision: 230820
  - Add more should start entries for nscd init service, reported by
    Guillaume Rousse (#41055).
  - Added more upstream nscd fixes.
  - Add upstream change that replaces
    glibc-2.8-bug-iconv6_tst-iconv7-localedata.patch (one of bug-iconv6
    and tst-iconv7 fixes). I didn't saw that there were already a change
    that fixed the same issue.
    + Vincent Danen <>
      - properly use conditionals for build_i18ndata and build_timezone so recent rpm doesn't complain
      - update the wrapper_handle_sha patch to fully handle sha256c and sha512c; this makes sha256c viable with passwd (although sha512c still needs some work)
    + Pixel <>
      - do not call ldconfig in %post/%postun, it is now handled by filetriggers
* Fri Jun 06 2008 Pixel <> 6:2.8-1.20080520.3mnb2
  + Revision: 215279
  - add rpm filetrigger running "ldconfig -X" when rpm install/remove libraries
  - drop patch5 since ldconfig is now nicely handled using rpm filetrigger
* Tue May 27 2008 Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski <> 6:2.8-1.20080520.2mnb2
  + Revision: 211410
  - Add bug-iconv6 and tst-iconv7 fixes from glibc cvs. Even with them
    tests would fail: localedata isn't processed before iconvdata, so
    de_DE.UTF-8 isn't available for the tests. Probably this wasn't
    catched as this problem is masked if de_DE.UTF-8 is already installed
    on main system. Made a patch to make iconvdata depend on localedata.
  - nscd init service should start ldap service if present (mdv bug
  - Remove patches not needed anymore for glibc tests related to gcc 4.2
  - Cleanup mdkversion uses from spec: there is no reason for backporting
    or using current package on older distro releases.
  - Use different numbering scheme in package release for this glibc 2.8
    "stable-snapshot" release, discussed on Cooker mailing list (asked by
    Anssi Hannula, Thierry Vignaud).
  - Remove uneeded README.upgrade.urpmi message since addition of Provides
    to "should-restart = system".
  - Rediffed ENOTTY-fr-translation patch.

  - Disable temporarily make check for x86_64.
  - Update to glibc 2.8 (no official tarball, generated one from
    glibc-2_8-branch glibc cvs branch).
  - Drop glibc cvs patches already applied.
  - Merge glibc-2.3.4-nscd-fixes.patch and glibc-2.6-nscd_HUP.patch into
    glibc-nscd_fixes.patch and added more updates/fixes from RedHat.
  - Removed update for perl 5.10 (mtrace-perl-5.10.0 patch), already

  - Disable again make check failure for i[3456]8: failure happens on
    build system but not locally here, and 32 bits on x86_64 fails too
    because missing 32 libs (fixable later with BuildRequires etc.).
  - Revert again change that causes java programs use too much memory on
    x86_64 (#38830).

    so disable make check failure for i[3456]8; it passes on x86_64, not
    sure if it's related to gcc 4.2, will need a better check later and
    someone that knows better about complex math.

  - gconv-modules.cache is volatile (always changed by iconvconfig on
    post), mark it as ghost in rpm files section, so it's ignored in rpm
    -V output.
  - Fix installation of lib{memusage,pcprofile}.so files (#35178). Don't
    move them around anymore and hack xtrace/memusage, just use upstream
    defaults avoiding troubles like this in the future.

  + Revision: 60011
  - Updated to version 2.6.1 (technically with previously added patches we

    upstream change:
    2006-11-30  Jan Kratochvil  <>
    	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/i386/clone.S: Provide CFI for the
    	* outermost
    	`clone' function to ensure proper unwinding stop of gdb.
    	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/x86_64/clone.S: Likewise.
    It is causing memory leaks with gcj 4.3 on some cases on x86_64, and
    probably other problems, may be because of a binutils bug.
  - Added fix for a popen bug from glibc cvs.

  - Replaced init_tls_calls with more complete branch_misc_fixes patch,
    that includes it along with more fixes from upstream glibc 2.6 branch.
  - Added upstream fix bz4775.
  - Don't use echo on post, instead use README.upgrade.urpmi because of
    rpmdrake, as reported by Anssi Hannula. Also use better warning
