I recently (yesterday) switched from Manjaro to edevour because…
I would like to install Matlab (succeeded) but if I run it I have an error that should be resolved in glibc version 2.34 so my Question is:
when will it be available, since glibc 2.33 is flagged out of date but still installed on my system?
Thx and good night
aarch64-linux-gnu-glibc has version 2.34 already.
I think you just have to hope for a swift update in the next few days.
Edit: from the aur package (provided i am not mistaking it for something else.)
READ THE README FILE IN THE REPO. NO AUR HELPERS SUPPORTED. ONLY ARCHLINUX AS OS IS SUPPORTED. YOU SHOULD BE BUILDING THIS PACKAGE USING MAKEPKG, NOTHING ELSE WILL BE SUPPORTED.
blusser - Welcome to the EndeavourOS community!
How badly do you want/need glibc-2.34? I can share instructions for building and installing your own glibc-2.34-1 and lib32-glibc-2.34-1 packages from the source files at gnu.org. This would be something you could use while you wait for an updated version to be available in the arch repo.
It’s not entirely complicated, but there are about half a dozen steps required, and it will take some time to compile the package (~40 minutes on my Ryzen 7 5700G). Let me know if you are interested.
That’s gilbc for ARM only, and I am assuming blusser is looking for glibc for x86_64. The x86_64 version is in the repo, but it’s still glibc-2.33 … https://archlinux.org/packages/core/x86_64/glibc/
I put together a few steps and some helpers if anyone wants to build their own 2.34 version. My instructions and supporting files are on github: https://github.com/coadmunkee/glibc_pkg_build
The README file includes some explanation of what I changed, how to build/install and how to return back to the repo version if desired.
(several edits later, some of the grammar has been fixed and the message is almost readable )
Yes… you are right. My mistake it is arm.
I will probably wait for it in the repos, but if were to build it, how would I remove the old version, and wouldn’t it break some stuff.
I don’t want anything to break…
How do I know when the package is available, because I would need it yesterday for matlab,
But i can use windows or their docker, so I’m ok with not compiling it.
Thank you for the effort though
