Hi, uclibc can break if you don't do a binary compatible upgrade. Because it's so configurable, it's much easier to break it if you accidently change something in the config which has big implications. For example I think it proved very difficult to switch uclibc from non hardened to hardened because it breaks before you can re-install? Additionally, I forget the details now, but I think this bug hit some people before - not sure if it's properly resolved in current uclibc either? https://bugs.busybox.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1543 It's not something I recall running into though, so possibly a config change has caused / will rectify things?
