    Well, you could recompile glibc with the TLS support turned off. And
    make sure that your /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ did not get oddnesses done, or
    some LD_* variables don't make things look in /lib/tls.disabled,
    although that seems unlikely.

Hmm... that would be ok as well, however similar situation has never arised with versions prior to centos 5. I have numerous servers running centos 4.5, and none of them have similar problems. Atleast by renaming the tls directory it should stop giving the error.

P.S. : The directory /lib/tls is empty, so it actually shouldn't make any difference at all.

Sorry, but it's really not.

In RHEL's published Xen kernels, they drop a little entry in /etc/ld.so.conf.d that keeps ldconfig from loading up /lib/tls with that kernel. Do an "rpm -qlp" kernel-xen-[whatver]" on your old kernels to confirm this.

The directly Xen supplied and compiled kernels do not have this little feature, nor do they correctly use "grubby" to update the grub.conf.
