Safe-browser installation on Centos 7 issue

Hi all,

If any one can help:

Sadly did not work:
cd /tmp
tar -xvzf glibc-2.18.tar.gz
cd glibc-2.18/
mkdir glibc-build
cd glibc-build/
…/configure --disable-sanity-checks
make install


After a bit of googling it seems indeed that CentOS7 has version 2.17 of glibc.
So the ideal solution would be if 2.17 also should work, like Chromium has done here.
But maybe, to get your self compiled 2.18 to work: if you do ‘sudo ldconfig’: does that help?
Probably not: ‘make install’ should already have done that.
