GNU C Library

New #! user here, my only question is why is the GNU C Library so far behind? Seems like its kind of outdated for most practical uses. I had to install the experimental 2.19 just to get a couple programs working.

EDIT: is it something I missed in updating?

If you are running Stable/Wheezy then that's what you should expect. If you want recent then use testing/unstable, at your own risk.

There are LOTS of people running Waldorf who find it completely practical, and are willing to use older versions because their system is STABLE.

This is so true.

Also pulling stuff from experimental into stable could very well cause a system to go CRUNCH!! BANG!! - but at least one gets to keep the pieces.

there are also "crazies" who run the newest libc in waldorf. i don't use many gui apps, so that's probably why i'm ok.

OP: May I refer you to the sticky "modern applications" in this very forum?  hmm

You might try linking to it, since searching on "modern applications" finds me no topic with this title, and this thread as the first result...

I was idly interested what advice it contained.

Excuse me while I now go manually looking for this sticky.. search isn't helping...

Alad is probably referring to his very own LD_LIBRARY_PATH or running new applications in Waldorf

Re: GNU C Library

Thank you damo. And just for the record:

I think you've guessed by now how much I like libc upgrades.  ]:D

Re: GNU C Library

Also ty damo, and sorry Alad, must be me using Windows that confused forum search into treating the term "modern" literally, rather than figuring out that you meant "new" when I simply copied and pasted.

Use Windows as long as I have and it rots your brains...

Re: GNU C Library

Thank you all. Yes I see that now. I went ahead and got the newest GBLIC from experimental like one of the crazy people. Still pretty stable, over 24 hours anyway. Did have an issues with Locales that came up but it was easily fixed by directly editing the Locales file...   

As far as why I am such a #! noob....  I come from the UBUNTU world which eventually got over bloated for my tastes and landed me here. I would be angry at canonical but they turned me onto LINUX. And I think they are doing the same for a lot of people right now. #! is so damn fast and stable. Pretty cool stuff.

Thanks for taking the time to talk to a noobie
