I’m on 12.2 i586 and Apper tells me I have one critical update needed (openSUSE-2012-848 - glibc: fix <fenv.h> with -m32) but I can’t install it due to a failed dependency (ctxusb-2.2-1.i386 requires /lib/ld-linux.so.2, but this requirement cannot be provided). I understand this has something to do with the dynamic loader but I don’t know how to fix it. How do I go about fixing the dependency?
This comment will not solve your issue, but may narrow the possibilities. As for every 12.2 update so far, I recently installed it using Apper but the 64 bit version with no dependency issues. Mine is a pretty standard installation originally from the KDE liveCD and fully updated. This may just be a problem with the 32bit update. Hopefully someone will either confirm it as that, or suggest a shortcoming on your system.
thanks for the response. my 12.2 system is a fresh install and has been quite healthy (except for problems saving scanned images, but that’s another story). the problem i’m having is in a particular update recommended by apper. I’ve also tried to run the same update in zypper with the same result (not surprising).

are you on openSUSE 12.2 or on Tumbleweed (it is not 12.2, it is past
[newer than] 12.2] and today another Tumbleweed user [or was that also
you] noted in the mail list that there are problems with the glibc in
the repo … and, apparently also the 12.1 and 12.2 repo…
