That's not the reason. The 2.1 series glibc has some of the header
problems fixed (and his looked like one of those, but I could certainly be
wrong) and that glibc will only work properly with the kernel headers it
was designed for (i.e. the 2.1.xx series supplied either with kernel
headers or the source files)

It is also entirely possible that his problem stems from something else
entirely, in which case my advise is mostly useless (as it may be in any
case ;-)
