<div>Which error do you have? I've recently emerge/update system to default-linux/alpha/no-nptl/2.4, gcc-3.4.6, glibc-2.3.5-r3, 2.4.30 alpha and, as far as I remember, it was painless...</div>

<div>I'm currently using:<br><br>glibc-2.3.2-r1<br>gcc-3.2.3-r2<br>linux 2.4<br><br>I'm not able to compile a newer glibc with this setup, but newer versions of gcc require it. I would prefer not to take this server down for several days to reinstall. First I attempted to prepare a new chroot-ed enviroment so I could just cut over once it was ready, but
2.4/2.6 incompatabilities prevent me from doing that effectively. Secondly, I thought of getting a newer glibc out of GRP to bootstrap into a new enviroment rather than building it myself. There does not appear to be a GRP for Alpha. It seems I am stuck.
<br><br>Can anyone suggest an alternative to re-installation?<br> </div></blockquote></div><br>
