Well, I've had this error with several Loki titles, which I own, and
the following procedure allowed me to upgrade:
- create a directory somewhere
- unpack the binaries of a pre-2.3.1 smgl-iso to this directory
- enter the directory via chroot, see the attached script for commands
and stuff to remember (getting the directories mounted over helps
the system alot).
- (optional) update the sorcery install in the chroot (remember to
keep glibc at the old version).
- Mount the directories of the updater and the game, and
update/install as needed.
It seems to be only the updater that has problems with glibc, the
games (luckily) seems to work.
I'm not sure whether one could install sufficient libraries in the
chroot to allow the games to be run from there, but should it be
nessecary, I would expect it to be possible (one would need the X
libraries, possibly SDL and other stuff).
Hope this helps, please ask if I left something out.
