If you are using the default shell (and you probably are) then the tab key is your friend.
# cd /media/O
and then press the TAB key on your keyboard. The shell will then fill out everything else that is needed for you to change your directory to your mounted CD or DVD. If for some reason you had two things in the /media directory that started with O (that's a capital Oh) then the shell would list your choices. Type enough to be specific, pressTAB again, and you'll be good to go.
The reason those back slashed are there ( \ ) is because you have spaces in the name of your DVD, so you have to 'escape' the spaces by putting a backslash in front of them so that the shell knows that you are still working on the first argument into the cd command (which only takes one argument). If you just type a space without a backslash in front of it then the shell thinks that you are trying to pass multiple arguments into the cd command.
You want to change your directory to /media/OL5.7[space]i386[space]dvd[space]20110728
The way you write that in 'shell speak' is" cd /media/OL5.7\ i386\ dvd\ 20110728
That's a lot of typing and work when all you have to do is type the first O and then press TAB. :)
Does that answer your question?
Glibc provides some of the core libraries that many system tools rely on. You cannot simply install or change your version of glibc without affecting your system and all the software it depends on. If you force install the installation of glibc you will render your system useless beyond any reasonable repair. You can't just simply install or uninstall individual core system libraries. If you would like to upgrade glibc then use the yum utility like it was mentioned to you numerous times already. What are you trying to accomplish?

Avi, I go to the mounted DVD as I want to set up “glibc-devel”. Why do I get nothing below?
You should already have glibc installed. This is the first time you've mentioned glibc-devel in the entire thread. I strongly urge you to configure YUM access via public-yum.oracle.com and just use yum to install packages. Follow the instructions at http://public-yum.oracle.com to enable access to the Oracle Linux 5 latest channel, then use yum to install the glibc-devel package:
# yum install glibc-devel
Thanks. This is what I have done
[root@localhost Server]# yum install glibc-devel
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
This system is not registered with ULN.
ULN support will be disabled.
Setting up Install Process
Package glibc-devel-2.5-81.el5_8.1.i386 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
If the required item is “glibc-devel-2.5-12” but I have set up this “glibc-devel-2.5-81.el5_8.1.i386”, is it a problem?
If you are looking for oracle db dependencies, you should install oracle-validated and relax:
yum install oracle-validated
That's for OL5.
Now, in order to avoid versions on the command, you can refer to the packages as:
Those are the glibc packages listed in the oracle db docs (when you install oracle-validated that package will take care of the dependencies).
you can execute
yum install glibc.x86_64 glibc.i686 glibc-common.x86_64 glibc-devel.x86_64 glibc-devel.i386 glibc-headers.x86_64
To install all those.
Later, you can do an
and your system will be updated to the latest packages.
