I didn't think that was possible . The K3's using glibc 2.5, which is already freaking ancient. glibc 2.3.6 is just straight up prehistoric ^^. (And don't remind me that I actually have used system running it, and older, please ).

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.

err Okay.

I did 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
