Posted on: 12/21/2004 05:21 PM

Updated glibc packages are available for Fedora Core 3

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-570
2004-12-21
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : glibc
Version : 2.3.4

Release : 2.fc3

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.

gconv-modules.cache files on bi-arch setups
