You shouldn't. What command are you using to install libc6 from
# apt-get install -t unstable `grep-status -Fsource glibc |
grep-dctrl -Fstatus installed -ns package`
# apt-get install `grep-status -Fsource glibc | grep-dctrl -Fstatus installed
-ns package | sed -e s/$/=2.3.2.ds1-21/`
Basically, mention each installed package from the libc sources in the
command line. I believe your "but would loose X related development
packagse" is related to only upgrading libc6 and not libc6-dev at the
Also, next time please use firstname.lastname@example.org instead of
debian-qt-kde: there's more people there who can both help you, and
benefit from answers. Thanks.
