Dear Team

I am getting this error. I cannot scp any data from the server giving this error to any other server.

scp: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.8' not found (required by scp)

Linux 2.6.23.8-34.fc7 #1 SMP Thu Nov 22 23:05:33 EST 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux


i have not done any updates ...

Please help....

From what I can determine Fedora 7 has glibc-2.6. If you have not done any updates which have not been available since 2008 has scp ever worked? glibc-2.8 was not used until Fedora 9. You have not made any changes to the system at all since 2007?

glibc is a common to many applications and if you upgrade for scp you could break everything else.

The current version is Fedora 14 and if possible I suggest you install it.

It looks as expected. So something has been changed, updated or modified.
