What is new in v5.0.7 and what is AnyDAC ?

Extracting glibc info in #Linux to see if is greater or equal with 2.7

Related to previous announcement:If you are on ubuntu and your ubuntu release is greater than Hardy (8.04) you are safe , on other distributions you can determine this way the glibc version
You must run the /lib/libc.so.6 and it will return the glibc version
in the first row.
In ubuntu or any debian based distro

/lib/libc.so.6 | head -n 1
GNU C Library (Ubuntu EGLIBC 2.13-0ubuntu1) stable release version
2.13, by Roland McGrath et al.

in this case glibc is 2.13
and is builded from eglibc sources

another option is dpkg interrogation

dpkg -l libc6

on rpm based distros

rpm -q glibc

ps: other alternative ways

As you may know, I’m the maintainer of Firebird packages in OpenSuse.
but I’m also doing the same for Fedora (including EPEL), Mandriva and
the future Mageia.

OpenSuse is not my preferred distro, for far, and even if they are all
rpm distro, following seriously a distro need some time, and when new
Firebird version is there you need some time to do the job the right
way. And I don’t have enough time for this.
So I will still maintain Mandriva, Mageia, Fedora but no longer OpenSuse
(will it be “open” for a long time I don’t know, and that’s another story)

So please OpenSuse and Firebird users, step in, I will help you if need.
