Hello there,

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

  • mkdir ~/glibc_install; cd ~/glibc_install
  • wget
  • tar zxvf glibc-2.14.tar.gz
  • cd glibc-2.14
  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • …/configure --prefix=/opt/glibc-2.14
  • make -j4
  • sudo make install
  • export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=“/opt/glibc-2.14/lib${LD_LIBRARY_PATH:+:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH}”

Hope this helps! Keep us posted!

Cheers, Sri Charan
