This directory contains the version 2.0.1 test release of the GNU C Library.
Many bugs have been fixed since the last release.
Some bugs surely remain.
As of this release, the GNU C library is known to run on the following
*-*-gnu GNU Hurd
i86-*-linux-gnu Linux-2.0 on Intel
m68k-*-linux-gnu Linux-2.0 on Motorola 680x0
alpha-*-linux-gnu Linux-2.0 on DEC Alpha
Former releases of this library (version 1.09.1 and perhaps earlier
versions) used to run on the following configurations:
Whether this is still true for this release is unknown. Porting the
library is not hard. If you are interested in doing a port, please
get on the mailing list by sending electronic mail to
The GNU C library now includes Michael Glad's Ultra Fast Crypt, which
provides the Unix `crypt' function, plus some other entry points.
Because of the United States export restriction on DES implementations,
we are distributing this code separately from the rest of the C
library. There is an extra distribution tar file just for crypt; it is
called `glibc-crypt-2.0.1.tar.gz'. You can just unpack the crypt
distribution along with the rest of the C library and build; you can
also build the library without getting crypt. Users outside the USA
can get the crypt distribution via anonymous FTP from ftp.ifi.uio.no
[188.8.131.52], or another archive site outside the USA. Archive
maintainers are encouraged to copy this distribution to their archives
outside the USA. Please get it from ftp.ifi.uio.no; transferring this
distribution from prep.ai.mit.edu (or any other site in the USA) to a
site outside the USA is in violation of US export laws.
Beside the separate crypt tar file there are some more add-ons which can be
used together with GNU libc. They are designed in a way to ease the
installation by integrating them in the libc source tree. Simply get the
add-ons you need and use the --enable-add-ons option of the `configure'
script to tell where the add-ons are found. Please read the FAQ file for
See the file INSTALL to find out how to configure, build, install, and port
the GNU C library. You might also consider reading the WWW pages for the
GNU libc at http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/libc.html.
The GNU C Library is completely documented by the Texinfo manual found
in the `manual/' subdirectory. The manual is still being updated and
contains some known errors and omissions; we regret that we do not have
the resources to work on the manual as much as we would like. Please
send comments on the manual to <firstname.lastname@example.org>, and
not to the library bug-reporting address.
The file NOTES contains a description of the feature-test macros used
in the GNU C library, explaining how you can tell the library what
facilities you want it to make available.
We prefer to get bug reports sent using the `glibcbug' shell script which
is install together with the rest of the GNU libc to <email@example.com>.
Simply run this shell script and fill in the information. Nevertheless
you can still send bug reports to <firstname.lastname@example.org> as normal
The GNU C Library is free software. See the file COPYING.LIB for copying
