Version 2.3.5 of the GNU C Library is now available for download at:

Please see and for mirror sites around the world.

This release contains only bug fixes, as will future 2.3.x releases.
The following bugs in version 2.3.4 are resolved in 2.3.5:

  284, 592, 602, 626, 633, 640, 650, 661, 671, 681, 693, 700, 710, 719,
  722, 723, 725, 726, 727, 728, 729, 730, 731, 732, 733, 734, 735, 736,

  777, 787, 821, 822, 823, 825

For information on reporting bugs in the GNU C Library, see:

Be advised that updating the C library is no trivial task and it is very
easy to damage one's system.  Unless you are participating in the
development and maintenance of the C library, you should use a binary
distribution instead.  The code in this release has already been built
and tested by maintainers of GNU/Linux and GNU/Hurd binary distributions
basing their systems on it.

Please note that version 2.3.5 cannot be compiled using GCC 4 (which has
not yet been released).  Version 2.3.5 has only the changes necessary to
fix bugs seen on production systems using 2.3.4; production systems are
using the GCC 3.4 compiler.  We expect to release version 2.3.6 soon, to
coincide with the anticipated GCC 4.0 release.  Version 2.3.6 will contain
changes necessary to build with GCC 4, though we still recommend the stable
GCC 3.4 version for building the stable 2.3.x versions of the GNU C Library,
as that is what has been heavily tested.  If you especially want to compile
glibc using GCC development snapshots, then you should be working with the
current development version of glibc (see
That code is not yet ready for release, but already builds well with GCC 4,
and fixes many new compilation warnings that you will still see in 2.3.6.

Note the `linuxthreads' package is required to build a useful system C
library for use with Linux kernels prior to version 2.6.  To build a
configuration supporting only Linux 2.6 kernels or to build for
GNU/Hurd, the package is not required.  The main glibc-2.3.4 release
package contains the Native POSIX Threads Library (NPTL) contributed
by Ulrich Drepper, which supports Linux 2.6 kernels only.

This is the first release to include the `ports' package, which has been
available via CVS since version 2.3.4 was released.  This add-on package
contains code supporting machines and operating systems maintained only by
volunteers, not as part of the core glibc maintenance effort.  It presently
contains some disused code for abandoned ports that worked many years ago,
as well as the Linux/AM33 port contributed by Alexandre Oliva.  You do not
need this package unless you are using AM33, or working on a new port of
glibc yourself.

Many thanks to these people, who contributed fixes found in this release:
