    I wish they added preprocessor macro for targeting lower glibc API level.

        Fairly certain solus will pick it up soon. Generally solus picks things up fairly fast, and arch more than likely pick it up too and break things without properly testing and rebuilding everything to ensure nothing breaks.

          In Gentoo: one can emerge glibc-9999, or wait a short while for glibc-2.27 ebuild to appear in the official Gentoo package tree.

              LOL, Archlinux will have it next week as late, Gentoo already have it on glibc-9999.

              Of course if you use Debian or any other non rolling distro, it will take a long time but you should have accepted that fate when you decided to use a release cycle distro instead of rolling, so I don't get where the whine is coming from? it was your own choice !!!

                    Just to be fair here, ArchLinux only breaks on GCC(on ABI changes)/glibc updates, if you enable the staging and testing repos without the technical knowledge on how to use them because as the name states very clearly is not for regular users but seasoned power users that can at the very least do a decent bug report on the breaks.

                    The problem with new users and arch is that they think all repos should be enabled to get everything fast when the aforementioned repos are meant for the ArchLinux developers and power users to actually do the testing they will whine doesn't happen five minutes later.

                    If you are not a power user or a developer just use the default "Stable" repos and you won't even notice when glibc lands because once it reaches core is bullet proof outside very obscure software that will likely get patches couple days later.

                    Same applies to other rolling distros, in gentoo if you unmask an -9999 ebuild be damn sure you know what you are doing because people will laugh at you otherwise when you whine is broken
