Is that the updated version then?

I probably should know, but I don't...

Rats... umm...

This is worth a shot -- does the version printed by rpm -qa | grep libc match what /lib/libc.so.6 says?

I had those same problems when GLX wasn't being loaded. XMMS tried to load its openGL-powered plugins, and it crashed.

Have you checked to make sure GLX is being loaded?

Default grep libc

sometimes when i attempt to reply here i get bounced out after logging in and composing a reply, necessitating a second try at doing the whole process again. rather annoying actually.

during the glibc upgrade process i tried using the srpms at the redhat site and after building them (they oddly enought turned out to have an i386 in the filenames) i attempted to install them and were stymied with dependency problems, supposedly not having the requisite 2.3.2-5 packages. i then went up to the redhat site and pulled down and installed (i thought) the i686 versions of the glibc and 20-9 kernel rpms.
here's what the rpm -qa | grep libc returned

glibc-debuginfo-common-2.3.2-27.9
libcap-1.10-15
glibc-kernheaders-2.4-8.10
libcapplet0-1.4.0.1-11
libcap-devel-1.10-15
dietlibc-0.21-4
glibc-common-2.3.2-5
glibc-devel-2.3.2-5
glibc-profile-2.3.2-27.9
glibc-utils-2.3.2-5
libcapplet0-devel-1.4.0.1-11
glibc-2.3.2-5
glibc-debug-2.3.2-5
glibc-debuginfo-2.3.2-27.9

/lib/lib6.so.6 doesn't return anything past the 2.3.2, such as a -5 or a -27.9, so i'm guessing that it didn't get upgraded...

It may just not be telling you that. gcc does something similar -- regardless of the patchlevel of your gcc, it'll only tell you the "official" version numbers. If you're running 3.2.1-7 (or something), for example, then gcc -dumpversion will only tell you 3.2.1.

So it still may have been upgraded.

Can you look around on your CDs for which version is included there? If it's 2.3.2-5, then try upgrading more than just glibc-profile and glibc-debuginfo. I don't suppose you have RHN access, do you? That'd make it easier...

Default rh9 up2date

went out and actually bought the personal distro, installed it from zero and ran the red hat network up2date thang. took long time downloading all the packages with just a dialup, and it reported that there was a problem with the kernel docs during download. i said alright go on and finish the install, and away it went with the install, but when i checked it a couple of hours later, it had stopped at the kernel doc package. it had, fortunately, installed the glibc package, the 2.3.2-27.9 rev that was needed for the problem that we've attempting to address. i futzed about with some other things (hosts, fstab, email client, etc) before trying the .4363 driver install, but it came off without a hitch and xmms started properly. btw, the compile date on the 2.3.2-27.9 is an april date while the 2.3.2-5 is a february date.
thanks for your help and i guess the moral of the whole mess has been to make sure that the latest errata packages have been installed properly before crying wolf...
