1. Topic:

This errata updates the GNU C library to the latest official release (2.2)
while fixing several bugs found in glibc 2.1.92-14 and glibc 2.1.94-3.

2000-11-27: Added packages for Red Hat Linux 7 for Alpha

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.0 - i686, i386, alpha

3. Problem description:

Users are strongly urged to update to the latest official GNU C library.

This library provides binary compatibility with programs and shared
libraries built for older releases of glibc, such as glibc 2.0.x and 2.1.x.
Binaries and shared libraries built against glibc-2.1.92-14 or
glibc-2.1.94-3 are also binary compatible, but new binaries compiled
against this glibc 2.2 might not run on systems with older GNU C library
packages installed.

This errata fixes several glibc bugs, including JDK programs segfaulting on
startup, xmms segfaulting on exit, and how verbose ldconfig was about stale
symlinks when it wasn't provided with the -v option (this will now match
the behavior of the standalone ldconfig package). This release fixes
compatibility bugs with glibc 2.0.x, fixes a C header file problem so that
Python 2.0 compiles out of box, and also fixes a bug in locale handling
code.  Other bugs have also been fixed; see the Bugzilla IDs below and the
glibc ChangeLog* files for details.
