[Netkit.users] Problem with libc upgrading

Dear Emanuele,

version 3.0a of the Netkit filesystem contains an upgraded libc:

ii  libc6          2.3.6.ds1-13   GNU C Library: Shared libraries

Anyway, if you still want to get an upgraded libc on your own, you shold 
proceed as follows (root privileges are required):

   1. mount the Netkit filesystem on your host:

      mount -o loop,offset=16384 netkit-fs /mnt/nkfs

   2. change the root (/) to point to that filesystem:

      chroot /mnt/nkfs

   3. configure a name server inside /etc/resolv.conf
   4. update the list of packages and install the required upgrades:

      apt-get update
      apt-get install coreutils libc6
          

Notice: the link suggested by Luca points to a filesystem with an 
already upgraded libc but, as it was only meant for internal 
experimentation, it will soon to be removed and should therefore not go 
public. I kindly ask you not to mention it in further posts to this 
mailing list.


Regards,
Massimo.
