whats the target OS for the builds from these build machines ?

to change the default libc would require rebuilding (and retesting) the whole OS.

  • I believe glib is just the Gnome utility libraries, unlike glibc which has the core C runtime libraries. Upgrading glib is probably less dire, though it

  • Do you know why? As in, what features or fixes are required? If not, I
    think John’s question is pertinent. If you’re building a binaries to distribute, your best bet might actually be to produce multiple builds targeting specific Linux distributions. Alternately, some specific LSB
    release (none of which, as far as I can tell, require glibc 2.19+).

    CentOS 7 is built on glibc 2.17.

    Also, minor correction: “glib” is the name of a different library than glibc.

    To all…yes I meant glibc, not glib. Target environment — could be any version of Linux. This is for Apache OpenOffice. The buildbots we’ve been using are being decommisioned due to EOL. As a developer on that project, I
    need to be able to test and use the builds. We’ll be moving to a Ubuntu 14
    environment, which is spec’d at glibc 2.19 near as I can determine. So a long story. We will not be building for targeted environments.

    Write after I wrote this, I thought maybe I could get a zip of what I
    needed and just install it without overwriting my setup. Then set an env variable to run the generated build.

    Thanks for the responses.

    glibc.

  • Well, at the end of the day, if you’re trying to build for multiple environments then you really need to build to the lowest common denominator. What you seem to want is just the opposite, so short story is that it’s bad planning to build to such a new version of glibc. You’re not going to get around this, it just won’t work.

    answer to you problem is in your reply.

    install ubuntu 14 to a system and build with it.

    have you not heard the adage, ‘you can not get blood from a turnip’?

    These days you would use container technology to achieve that, docker i.e., with fitting images.

  • so what target environments are these build environments currently used for? thats pretty much what you’re going to get.
