Why is Tiny Core Linux based on glibc 2.3.6?
« on: February 06, 2009, 02:18:22 PM »
Hello Everyone,
I develope TEENpup Linux which is a major remaster of Puppy Linux and the next release will be 700MB's big.
As Tiny Core Linux is only a few months old I was just wondering why its base libs are 1.5 to 2 years old.
Is it because Debian Etch still has it core libs at 2.3.6?

No, we don't really care what Debian is at. 2.3.6 is just a very stable release, well tested. The same thing can not be said of all new glibc releases.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

OK, thought that could be a reason as well. TEENpup is still at 2.3.5
Thanks for the info
