Update glibc to 2.28
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I guess that's not the easiest ask for an update:

Basically the latest chromium ffmpeg builds are not working anymore and therefore there's no h264 support in browsers like Vivaldi for example:
Workaround is using an older build of the library at the moment.

$vivaldi-stable
cat: /usr/lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.28' not found (required by /home/$user/.local/lib/vivaldi/libffmpeg.so.92972)

glibc 2.28:
https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libc/

failing library on http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/c/chromium-browser/:
chromium-codecs-ffmpeg_71.0.3578.80 (any version)

So, aside from the update: we have vivaldi-stable in the repo with a compatible ffmeg-chromium as a dependency. Should get you sorted short-term.

@Alexander88207 While I appreciate the enthusiasm. Please leave glibc and other things in system.base to the #core_team_org . Thanks!

All right, no problem.
