Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Problem with C libraries after downgrading to glibc2.3.2 for installing Oracle 8 on Redhat E3


Ths is a bit late, but for future reference...  I am betting that your first problem resulted in a mismatched architechture on the rpm files.  Say your current glibc is built for i686 then you downgraded using an i386 glibc.  This messes practically almost everything on your system including rpm itself so it's hard to recover.  There is a solution to this by doing doing LD_ASSUME_KERNEL and rpm --replacepkgs voodoo which I can't recall anymore.
