upgrading glibc from version 2.12 to 2.14 on CentOS


You cannot update glibc on Centos 6 safely, but, you can install 2.14 alongside 2.12 easily, then use it to compile projects etc.

  1. mkdir ~/glibc_install; cd ~/glibc_install
  2. wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/glibc/glibc-2.14.tar.gz
  3. tar zxvf glibc-2.14.tar.gz
  4. cd glibc-2.14
  5. mkdir build
  6. cd build
  7. ../configure –prefix=/opt/glibc-2.14
  8. make -j4
  9. sudo make install
  10. export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/glibc-2.14/lib
