Something wrong with my hands, or glibc is really old?

Pidgin isn't running.

Code: [Select]
pidgin: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by pidgin)

The version is 2.3.6

I'm guessing a pre-built binary version was used?

Just type `/lib/libc.so.6`    That's why I've got another copy that I chroot into:

Do you build glibc yourself? I just want to update libc in initrd.

But I can't build glibc without getting any errors.

glibc is core, meaning other libs are built against it, so you have to start from scratch. Check out LFS if you're interested in building your own. It's fairly simple, and you can add anything you want after that.
