Hi all,
I cannot compile an application in C language on TDE w/VP,

these is not a glibc-devel-32bit.
How can I get and install glibc-devel-32bit of appropriate version into my VMWare?

I'm using the TD14.10 VM and I'm trying to do some analysis on the DBQL object log.  I've turned on the logging but the object table doesn't get populated, even when you flush or end logging on the user.  All the other DBQL tables get populated as expected.  Is the object logging disabled and if so can it be enabled?
