Thread: Glibc Error

    Default Glibc Error

    Hi all.

    I have OpenSuse 11.4(Celadon) with Kernel Linux 2.6.37.6-0.11-desktop. I am using GNOME 2.32.1. When I try to install certain software (e.g. vlc, ffmpeg) I get the error "nothing provides libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.14)(64bit)", despite haeing libc.so.6 in both /lib and /lib64. Do any of you guys know what I can do to fix this? I can't seem to find any discussion of it on the internet or these forums.

    Well, I am currently trying to install them using the install/remove package controller (YaST)
    Remove nr.1 and replace it by the Packman repo. I wish I had placed a bet on me.....lately saw that the videolan repo has 12.1 packages. It is adviced not to use these, but those from Packman. Here Restricted formats - openSUSE Community Wiki is the "gateway to multimedia", it will install most necessary codecs etc and add the Packman repo. That will be accessible afte the operation, it serves vlc, ffmeg and lots and lots and lots
    of other stuff. And, it won't throw the nasty GLIB errors on you.
    I also suggest you use http://software.opensuse.org to find openSUSE Chromium packages, and remove the google repo.

    It would help if you posted the complete download/install attempt with
    zypper. From the initial line with prompt and command line issued.

    But, it could be because you are using packman for factory, that's a big
    no-no. You will have to replace with packman for 11.4 and downgrade all the
    affected packages.

    I use the Software Manager GUI; how can I access the zypper commands it issued?

    Strange, I don't know how that happened? I'll give it a try. Thanks!

    It does not issue commands to zypper, it is a different program.

    Forget it, it must be the packman repo.

    Yes, switching from Factory to OpenSUSE_11.4 did the trick. Thanks again!
