How to build glibc_2.19-13.debian.tar.xz

Asked by john.d@servergy.com on 2015-01-31

 I am debugging a issue with malloc/free corruption and I want to build glibc_2.19-13.debian.tar.xz
to debug my app issue

I grapped:

wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/glibc/glibc_2.19-13.debian.tar.xz

tar -zJf glib*

the README file in debian dir leaves no hint how to build it.

Suggestions welcome

Compiling from Debian sources in Ubuntu will only destroy your Ubuntu install. Ubuntu and Debian packages are NOT compatible and NOT interchangeable.

Please try the following debugging utilities instead:

Thank you for your advice . I would still like to build libc from src.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #3

The file glibc_2.19-13.debian.tar.xz contains only the additions that have been added to the original glibc_2.19.orig.tar.xz package to adapt it to Debian or Ubuntu. You cannot compile or build that file alone.

You can download the complete source and build your own copy with the command
apt-get source
See the man pages for apt-get

Can you help with this problem?
