vlc does not work in slitaz cooking
  • parabolica0701parabolica0701 November 2009
    After installing vlc from mirror , when trying to run it following error appears:
    vlc: /lib/ versio `GLIBC_2.8`not found (required by /usr/lib/
    vlc: /lib/ version `GLIBC_2.8`not found (required by /usr/lib/
    My version installed is glibc 2.10 and glibc-base 2.7 but I do not find GLIBC_2.8 in repositories.

    Is there any solution for it

    Thanks in advance

    Does anybody know how to make vlc work.

    vlc works for me. Maybe you recharge and upgrade your system.

    Hi, your problem appears to be quite simple: vlc is needing glibc that you have already installed, but in a different version: 2.8 rather than 2.10.

    You just have to "cheat" the system, making a symbolic link name as library file name required by vlc, pointing to the already installed glibc libfile ;-)

    su -c 'ln -s /usr/lib/[glibc existing libfile name] /usr/lib/[glibc libfile required by vlc]'

    Another thing : why do you have glibc-base version 2.7 and not 2.10.1? You have not recharged and then updated your system.
