rpm dependency problem - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

How am I to upgrade glibc if almost all the applications depend on the old version of glibc? Even glibc-devel is needed by it. I don't want to --nodeps the package, but I can see no other alternative. Can someone help me with this? thanks...

    First and most important make sure that you upgrade the correct version of
    the glibc RPM package if your using Red Hat Linux. If your running a i686
    or equivalent system then make sure you update the i686 RPM version of
    glibc.

    $ rpm -q --queryformat '%{NAME} %{VERSION} %{ARCH}\n' glibc

    Assuming you have the glibc packages needed for the upgrade located in one
    common place, then upgrade them all at the same time;

    # rpm -Fvh glibc*rpm

    (Note: $ - is a user and # - is root)

    Don't. You can upgrade to errata releases because they are the same version
    with back-ported fixes.

    Upgrade to the distro version that includes the glibc you want. It will
    probably included whatever program you are trying to install the requires
    the new glibc anyway.
