glibc - The GNU libc libraries
|License:||LGPLv2+ and LGPLv2+ with exceptions and GPLv2+|
The glibc package contains standard libraries which are used by multiple programs on the system. In order to save disk space and memory, as well as to make upgrading easier, common system code is kept in one place and shared between programs. This particular package contains the most important sets of shared libraries: the standard C library and the standard math library. Without these two libraries, a Linux system will not function.
