install glibc-2.6.1

I have downloaded glibc-2.6.1.tar.tar. But I do not know how to install it on Xubuntu. Do you know ?
Thank you.

Looks like you downloaded it on a Windows machine and it screwed up the file extension.

It would either be *".tar.Z" or "*.tar.gz".

I would recommened using Xubuntu and doing

apt-get install glibc


apt-get upgrade glibc

rather than downloading manually.

It looks like it is actually the source package so you would have to build it yourself, normally unpack it, (gunzip, tar) and then configure and make, then make install.

Thank you,
I have tried that several times by
root@-xubuntu:/home/ak# apt-get upgrade glibc
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

But when installing Oracle I receive this error message :

Expected result: ATLEAST=2.3.4-2.19
Actual Result: package glibc is not installed
Check complete. The overall result of this check is: Failed <<<<

Then I can not install Oracle 11g.

as far as I know, glibc is the same as libc6

what does the following say

dpkg -l libc6

Here it is :

root@ak-xubuntu:/etc# dpkg -l libc6
