Recently after restoring my system I’ve been getting some funky erorrs when compiling / installing AUR packages and Ruby Gems. At first I thought the issue was specific to the repspective programs. (e.g. the ones being compiled by ABS and the gem in question).

However, upon closer inspection, both errors were related to the execution of c programmed executables. Some quick Googleing lead me to this Arch Linux forum thread.

I don’t remember ever manually doing anything to glibc as suggested in the thread, but at any rate, a simple upgrade did the trick for me.

# pacman -S glibc gcc
