Centos 6 requires GLIBC 2.12 however a lot of new programs you would want to compile may need a newer glibc. You can't remove the old glibc since the whole OS is based on it but you can install the updated glibc alongside it and do an export pointing to your updated GLIBC.
mkdir ~/glibc_install; cd ~/glibc_install
yum -y install gmp-devel mpfr-devel libmpc-devel glibc-devel glibc-devel.i686 zip unzip jar
Download, untar, configure, compile and install GCC

pcimodules no longer works it produces nothing probably because the format of /sys/bus/pci is different.
lspci -k doesn't work on older lspci versions.
pciutils can be compiled but it won't work if you have an old system and compile on a newer glibc.
iteriate through /sys/bus/pci/devices/*/modalias
#if you have nvidia make sure you install the nvidia-cuda-toolkit so hardware acceleration can be used

I flashed an LSI Logic firmware to it and it broke the BIOS (cannot do Ctrl+R) for booting purposes but allows other functionality to work normally.
I tried downgrading to a Dell firmware for Perc 6i but it won't work, not even with MegaCli

glib-2.12 required to compile QEMU
Solution install glib2
*Don't confuse glib2 with glibc, they are different and it may catch some off guard.
yum -y install glib2*
After that KVM should compile and install just fine.........
Centos 4.3 x64 & VMWare Server Beta[code:1:6d0b2c8c2f]
The correct version of one or more libraries needed to run VMware Server may be
missing. This is the output of ldd /usr/bin/vmware:

This is annoying and in my case it happened on Centos AMD 64 when compiling a 32bit program with GCC.
Install glibc-devel.i386 (make sure you get the i386 version and not the native 64 bit version which is likely already installed).
