I didn't think that was possible

Anyyyway, all the stuff about using matching loader/glibc still applies, but you can also try to use/build against the same glibc version as the Kindle, which should be 2.5 or 2.5.something (check the Amazon source releases).
EDIT: I'm not going through all my previous messages to switch older/newer where appropriate, but the meaning behind them still more or less applies.
had previously extracted the gllic from the kindle sources, but done nothing with them. Ill go read yet another FM. : )
Still I actually like that I am running an older one. : ) comforting somehow.
LET ME QUALIFY THAT: Perhaps with the updated Glibc I can convince a few more BR packages thru the hoops. We already managed a huge pile with the freaking ancient libs!!! glad to find we have a *little* bit more 'historic' overhead than originally thought.
kk. more manuals. got it.
Honestly, I had done little else but read since I got my kindle
HAHAHAHA I made a funny.
Jeepers must be getting tired. Right time to try the new kncWangle™ with Fries. TBC
