GLIBC_2.7 installation problem

Asked by leon on 2009-04-09

Hi,
I am attempting to install xtrabackup. This is what I have done

#wget http://www.percona.com/mysql/xtrabackup/0.5/xtrabackup-0.5-linux.x86_64.tar.gz

Untarred.

#cd xtrabackup-0.5-linux

#./xtrabackup
./xtrabackup: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.7' not found (required by ./xtr
abackup)

I did strings /lib64/tls/libc.so.6 | grep GLIBC which confirms I do not have GLIBC_2.7 so I attempted

#yum update glibc

Which completed successfully yet still I do not have this file. Do you know how I can rectify this?

I am running Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.1 (Tikanga)
root@macranetltd06 [~/xtrabackup-0.5-linux]# uname -a
Linux macranetltd06.theplanet.host 2.6.18-53.el5 #1 SMP Wed Oct 10 16:34:19 EDT
2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Thanks

Leon

Actually this is resolved.

I should have used the RPM not the tar. When I used the RPM for here http://www.percona.com/mysql/xtrabackup/0.5/ this works fine!

Just did a hot backup very quickly, impressed!

Now need to test incrementals and restore!

Thanks very much
