Obviously, not enough information.
I'm about to upgrade everything: kernel, gcc, glibc. If I upgrade
glibc, the current kernel won't work, right? Or will it?
If I put the new glibc in a separate location, how will the new
kernel find it when it is being compiled?
Meanwhile, when would I compile gcc, and how, to prevent similar
I think that the kernel does not depend on shared libraries.
So, it shouldn't matter if you change your glibc. Just go ahead.
( To support the above view -- I tried out LFS : linux from
scratch : where I had to recompile my own glibc and gcc, and
i had no problems with the old kernel while in "chroot" into
this partition, as well as booting into this partition as root
with the old kernel )
gcc - i suggest you use a different prefix .. say, /usr/local/gccx,
because some programs ( esp. c++ ones ) need some libraries with
gcc ( esp. gcc3 )
