In this HOWTO I will explain how you install a new version of glibc on your system.

I wrote this manual because I want to save others from the problems I encountered.

This HOWTO is a kind of guideline, made up from settings and ways of doing things that worked out for me. No liability for the contents of this document can be accepted. Use the concepts, examples and other content at your own risk. You are strongly recommended to make a backup of your system before major installations and backups at regular intervals.

If you have any suggestions, found another bug in some distribution and how to fix it, please let me know by writing me an e-mail: .
