Gothstone writes, "Problem: Stupid Debian only uses glibc2.1, and you have something that
needs 2.2. Apt-get insists you have the newest version.
Solution: Tell apt-get to get it from a different, but compatable
distribution, namely progeny. Progeny is a new dist of debian, with
many new features, including a new version of libc6. The
story is at Pinehead.com."
