[Gluster-devel] recomended library versions for glusterfs 1.3

Hi all,

My present gluster configuration is sometimes "freezing". I am wondering
if this has to do with my library versions or the build process. My
glibc is pretty old (2.3.2) and I had to make a small patch to avoid
epoll problem as discussed somewhere here earlier:

--- configure.ac.orig   Thu Jul  5 15:49:08 2007
+++ configure.ac        Thu Jul  5 15:50:18 2007
@@ -183,7 +183,7 @@
      AC_DEFINE(HAVE_BACKTRACE, 1, [define if found backtrace])

+dnl AC_CHECK_HEADERS([sys/epoll.h])


With latest (1.3.0 patch 457) I know have extended attribute problem
(source code does not compile) and I will certainly have to patch again
to bypass the trouble which certainly is not a good thing.

I would like to know what are the "recomended" library versions for
gluster 1.3 (glibc, but also others such as libattr, fuse...) ?

What would be similar recomendations for the linux kernel version and
for gcc compiler ?

Thanks in advance for your comments.


PS: I run
glusterfs 1.5patch403
fuse 2.6.5
libattr 2.4.7
on linux kernel
