|It is a bit of a hack, but nothing appears to be broken by doing this. And the glibc related commands seem to work ok. I do not get any system errors with anything I do so far.|
I'm curious if you've tried running other things that should, might, or are already known to break against the version of glibc DSL has, such as more recent (Sarge+) apps from Debian or recent builds of GTK1 Firefox/Bon Echo from lamarelle.org.
I'm a little surprised by this -- an uncompressed difference of only ~14kb for libc itself despite a "gazillion" or however many patches it has had. This is what DSL currently has:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1230864 Jun 25 2005 /lib/libc-2.3.2.so
...and this is in the Sarge version you said you used:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1244752 Mar 5 2007 libc-2.3.2.so
Much of the rest of it is also appears to be fairly close to the same size of the DSL versions, at least what I looked at. I'll double check the sizes and play around with it more later today, maybe test on my hard drive install since I've decided to reinstall with 4.4 when it hits release anyway.
