libc versions

Everywhere I go I'm faced with several libc directories.
libc5, glibc... what are they and which is/are valid for my version of Linux (Mandrake 6.0)?

type in something like "ldd /bin/date" and you will know which is the PRIMARY C library of your system.

these are, as already said, the primary C libraries, which contain code for function calls from different binaries/executables like date & co.

the glibc2 (alias libc6) is the newest of them and will most probably be the one used from most of your applications.
