Hello, all.

Currently running CentOS 5.5 w/ the following glibc:

glibc-common-2.5-24
glibc-2.5-24
glibc-devel-2.5-24
glibc-headers-2.5-24

What is the best way to update to glibc 2.5-49.el5_5.6?

I have attempted to do so via yum and get readings such as "no package marked for update." Checked repo, and the updates are live for the getting. Attempted to perform rpm update with dependency errors.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Auto repo with fast server yum plugin. Additionally, manually tried xmission.com's. I did a clean all on yum after switching repos.
