  Yes - I said the same thing below and its needed for good reason - and
the newer glibc provides everything needed by the older other f14
binaries - and its fine.

 It is working for me .. sorry it isn't for you.

 It is a perfectly defined state - don't be confused - it is F14 plus
some updates. I also showed exactly how to do all updates on an ongoing
basis to keep it updated and get all security updates  - and keep things
in a perfectly defined state ... it is working for me ..

 Perhaps this is not the way for you if you find it confusing ... my
suggestion then is deal with systemd and its bugs/quirks or perhaps
install F15 and replace systemd with upstart - that should work the same
as f14 + a few f15 packages.

  Do whatever works for you ... you could try even the new ubuntu if its
mesa and xorg are enough up to date.

  good luck!
