[mesa-users] Installing MESA on a supercomputer

Hi Kevin --

This is a common problem with systems using 'older' (pre-2.11) versions of the GNU C library (glibc), which is a standard (and significant) part of all Linux distributions. At the moment, I have no plans to support pre-2.11 glibc versions, since 2.11 has been out for over two years. So, the only workaround would be to upgrade to 2.11 or later.

I know next to nothing about this so am just following the instructions on Rich's website for using the MESA SDK (which has worked fine for my macbook many times). uname -m returns "x86_64" so I'm using the 64-bit linux version of the SDK. All the setup steps seem to work fine (no errors anyway), but I run into problems during the ./install step.
