    Default glibc-2.10.1-r1 compile failed

    I'm using the 2008-12 portage build right now and there is a new glibc that it's suggesting I upgrade to. Unfortunately when I try to build it this error appears:

    Is there any way of fixing this? There's a kernel patch for openvz but since I don't have access to it I'm stuck.

    Anyone find a resolution to this? I am also unable to compile glibc.

    I think the only way to resolve this is to wait for the admins to upgrade the node. The other way is to switch to Xen.

    I believe you just need the kernel headers for the particular kernel in your openvz and compile it with that. Either that or hope a patch is available in the gentoo list. Ask there.
    Happily on a Link3. Feel free to request a refferal code that takes a 10% lifetime discount off your hosting.
    Please open a SUPPORT TICKET AND CALL vpslink to resolve your vpslink problems FIRST

    The compile message actually included a link to the kernel patch, but I had to edit it out because I'm new to the forum.

    Again, because I'm on OpenVZ there is no way to patch the kernel.

    The compile error was with linux-headers-2.6.30-r1 installed

    kanna # emerge -va linux-headers
    These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
    Calculating dependencies... done!
