Glibc version on Sparky 3.2?

Hi all,

a happy Crunchbang user here, but lately I've been in need of an updated Glibc library so I could install and use some apps.

So, as there's no easy way to upgrade this lib in Crunchbang, I'm searching for a more up-to-date distro. Being very happy with Debian base, I was hoping Sparky might be the right choice.

So, can anyone please tell me the glibc version on latest Sparky (3.2)?

If you're unsure how to do it, you just need to locate your and run it as an app through CLI. In Crunchbang, it is located in



folder, so my output is (note the bolded version number in first line):
