Fedora Update Notification

Name        : glibc
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 2.19.90
Release     : 36.fc21
URL         : http://www.gnu.org/software/glibc/
Summary     : The GNU libc libraries
Description :
The glibc package contains standard libraries which are used by
multiple programs on the system. In order to save disk space and
memory, as well as to make upgrading easier, common system code is
kept in one place and shared between programs. This particular package
contains the most important sets of shared libraries: the standard C
library and the standard math library. Without these two libraries, a
Linux system will not function.

Update Information:

Previously applications might fail with the cryptic error "cannot load any more object with static TLS." The error can still happen if sufficient library packages attempt to use the limited shared resources provided by static, but very fast, thread local storage. To work around this issue an analysis of the distribution was done and sufficient slots were allocated for the average-case uses of glibc, MESA, and X11 packages. The static TLS slots are still a limited resource that must be shared distribution-wide by all libraries being dlopened by applications.

  [ 1 ] Bug #1124987 - Fix static TLS usage in Fedora shared libraries.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use
su -c 'yum update glibc' at the command line.
