Updating glibc on Ubuntu 10.10

Recently I was struggling to update the glibc on Ubuntu 10.10 from EGLIBC 2.12.  to 2.15

Here are the steps I have taken to perform these tasks

cd /usr/local/src/

         wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/e/eglibc/eglibc_2.15.orig.tar.gz
tar tvzf eglibc_2.15.orig.tar.gz
apt-get install alien
alien –to-deb eglibc_2.15.orig.tar.gz
dpkg -i nscd_2.15-0ubuntu10_amd64.deb libc6_2.15-0ubuntu10_amd64.deb libc6_2.15-0ubuntu10.4_amd64.deb libc-bin_2.15-0ubuntu10.4_amd64.deb

and finally reboot 🙂

And this is how you can confirm

root@:~# aptitude show libc6 | grep Version
Version: 2.15-0ubuntu10.4
root@:~# aptitude show libc-bin | grep Version
Version: 2.15-0ubuntu10.4
root@:~# aptitude show nscd | grep Version
Version: 2.15-0ubuntu10
root@:~# ldd –version | head -n1
ldd (Ubuntu EGLIBC 2.15-0ubuntu10.4) 2.15
