0. Prepare virtual system to be used for a build environment

1. Start with recent Owl-current system downloaded from

2. Update the kernel to recent 2.6.32-ovz from
(not necessary, but I recommend doing that).

3. Set up basic build environment in your home directory:
cat > ~/.rpmmacros << __RPMMACROS_EOF__
%_topdir	%homedir/RPM
%_tmppath	%homedir/RPM/tmp
%buildroot	%homedir/RPM/ROOT/%name-%version-%release

4. Build the new glibc using `rpmbuild`

5. If everything is ok, update the glibc locally with `rpm -U`

6. Restart the build system and check whether it boots ok.

7. Rebuild the new glibc package again

8. Try to check it - it most likely should pass the check.
