PostPosted: Sun 15 Sep 2019, 11:53    Post subject: Glibc link goes to Registrant WHOIS Contact Info  

The Palemoon item mentions Battleships's glibc upgrade for wary so I came here, but the link for glibc pet appears no longer to work (with the Seamonkey in Wary 5.5 or Palemoon 27.9.4 in Lupu2016).

I would love to upgrade racy, wary, puppy 4.31 with 2.6 kernel, and lupu 2016 to try to get Palemoon 28 working with them. (libstdc++ upgrade also needed at least for pre-lupu puppies). I have one laptop with nvidia video that won't display readably with anything newer than lupu with 2.6 kernel.

Put this together as some Carolina users wanted the latest Chrome.

Tested on different kernels ranging from 3.0.66 to 3.17, Racy (3.0.66 kernel), Carolina 1.1 (standard 3.2.13 Carolina kernel), Carolina 1.2 (3.17 kernel) running applications seem to be fine, but I have not tested compiling extensively.

Glibc, GCC, and Binutils have been compiled twice (2 pass).

As glibc is a core system element I would advise testing this on a non-essential Puppy install if you're not sure what you're doing. I haven't had any problems with it, but better safe than sorry.

It seems fully backwards compatible so any programs compiled with an older glibc will work, but anything compiled with the new glibc will not work with an older glibc.

Installation order:
GCC last.

The make check results for GCC and glibc are attached if anyone needs to see them.

Carolina 1.2 with 3.17 kernel:

This reply is to supply new links to the PET packages listed in the original post because original links are dead. Same exact packages - updated links.
The packages have been archived at archive.org by the puppy archive guru ally.

Nice one, perdido. That's needed doing for a while. Very Happy

Some time ago, I put all these items together in a tarball, along with installation instructions, simply to make the process simpler for anyone who wants to take advantage of it. You can find it here:-

It's certainly made my own Racy 5.5 a hell of a lot more 'usable'.....and still totally viable as a 'daily driver'. I'd recommend this upgrade to any user of Racy/Wary/Carolina.
