Hi Alex,

I tried the IP address this morning on a freshly installed Genode git
download and although it seems that things get downloaded good now, that
there is a problem in that Genode is reporting an out of date libc

not sure if it makes sense for the Genode project, but wouldn't it be a
good idea for the Genode project to have local copies of these types of
files so that compatability and building the base should not be a problem
anymore?  Just an idea.

I could see that a local repository could get rather large, but the upside
is that the Genode users could get local copies that are known to work and
install properly with the latest Genode versions.

Anyway, do you have any suggestions on how to resolve the out-of-date

Kind Regards and have a great day,
