I'm trying to install something in RedHat8 that requires libxml2 and libxslt. 
I've got .rpms of these, but libxml2 apparently requires libpthread.so which is 
apparently in glibc2.3.2. Does this mean I have to upgrade the whole of glibc? 
I've not had to mess about with c libraries yet, and I'm a bit unsure about 
doing anything drastic. Can anyone suggest a good source of basic help? Have 
looked at the GNU glibc manual and it just scared me ;)
