was wasting your time. I have suffered as well though!

I spent time making my host system sane. Still got the same errors.

I squashed an extra slackware installation onto a partition that
could hardly hold it and then used that as my host. Still got the
same errors.

I downloaded and burnt a Knoppix CD to use as my host. Still got the
same errors.

Just as I was about to cry I noticed:

pig pig pig pig pig

Strangely enough when I used glibc-linuxthreads-2.3.2.tar.bz2
everything went as it was supposed to, and I have been able to
carry on building my system.

Hopefully, if I contact the list again it will be with a real

Anyhow, thanks for the time you spent on my idiocy
