Help | Cant running my gmod server.

this the error :
failed to dlopen /home/gmod/gmod/orangebox/garrysmod/bin/ error=/lib/ version `GLIBC_2.7’ not found (required by /home/gmod/gmod/orangebox/garrysmod/bin/

Before the update the server was working perfect…

thanks for help.


I have the same problem on My Centos 5 server.
The fact is the last available version of Glibc for centos is 2.5 and garrysmod server is compiled with 2.7
Solutions :

  • Manually installing GLIBC_2.7, might crash your OS. ( don’t do it)
  • recompile with GLIBC_2.5
  • Ask centos to makes a later version of GLIBC than 2.7 available with yum update.

you can give me version of recompile with GLIBC_2.5?

thank you very much!

I don’t have it and my server is stuck as yours.

ohh so what we can do?

Wait for support / bugfix.
Change your OS. :frowning:

Who can recompile with GLIBC_2.5?, garry doesn’t answer to me on twitter.

Garry can. You need to get GLIBC_2.7 on your server, somehow.

Same error here :frowning:
running CentOS Linux 5.6, used to work fine now it don’t.

failed to dlopen /home/garrysmod/orangebox/garrysmod/bin/ error=/lib/ version `GLIBC_2.7’ not found (required by /home/garrysmod/orangebox/garrysmod/bin/

what we can do?

Can anyone please provide an old version of ? (before the latest update).
Garry seems to not care about us.

Far as i know we wont be able to run GarrysMod as long as it needs GLIBC 2.7 as CentOS5 only has GLIBC 2.5, will just have to keep asking Garry for fix.

I tried to send email to garry’s but he’s not respond and i try to talk with him on twitter but he isnt respond in twitter to )=


I’m sure he’ll fix it sooner or later. Just wait it out. (;



Don’t think he will fix :frowning:
All he needs to do it make a recompile of for the CentOS GLIBC though…

Unless someone has a older version of anywhere?

I hate to see so many people struggling with CentOS & Gmod. I’ve run into many troubles which have been solved via these very forums. So here is my gift to all those who are running CentOS and can not use GLIBC_2.7:

This is the from before the change. It works for me on my machines, which are all CentOS 5.x.

For the savvy:

I hope this helps & works for everyone…

BUMP :slight_smile:

This is a real hard issue :frowning:
