That is the correct file, and there is no special way to download it. Those steps will work. Your problems are not caused by a bad patch, but pollution from your host libc and toolchain. Dynamic linking is hard to get rid of. (I'm trying to avoid a rant here...) If I might ask, what is your end goal? Maybe you'd have a better time starting with something like Alpine or Sabotage. -- Regards, Samuel Holland <samuel@...lland.net>
