Just for the record, the site is http://boinc.berkeley.edu/ (You had
a double http:// there).

Please don't install a different glibc - there lies the path
to insanity. One option would be to rebuild boinc-client
from source and compile it, or to update the package. I don't
know if you can use the older version of boinc effectively, because
I'm nto intimately familiar with it.

You can submit an upgrade request on http://bugs.mageia.org/ .

There is no IGLU Cabal! Home‐made Cabals eventually superseded the power and
influence of the original IGLU Cabal, which was considered a cutting edge
development at its time.
