Fedora Core 2 Update: glibc-2.3.3-27.1
Posted on: 11/11/2004 11:56 AM

A glibc update is available for Fedora Core 2

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : glibc
Version : 2.3.3

Release : 27.1

Summary : The GNU libc libraries.
Description :
The glibc package contains standard libraries which are used by multiple programs on the system. In order to save disk space and memory, as well as to make upgrading easier, common system code is kept in one place and shared between programs. This particular package contains the most important sets of shared libraries: the standard C library and the standard math library. Without these two libraries, a Linux system will not function.
