I am new to Ubuntu (usually I administer Red Hat type Linux), so please bear with me if I have missed something obvious.
I have been asked to upgrade the glibc, libglib, and pkg-config on my 10.04 server to the 12.04 versions. When I try to do this, I receive dependency errors. When I try to resolve those, I recieve more dependency errors. I have tried using apt-get (pointing to a 12.04 repository), as well as dpkg -i installing the actual .deb.files. I also tried synaptic. Still dependency errors.
My question is, is this task possible or even wise? If it is possible, can someone please enlighten me
Thank you in advance
