I ran a similar system for quite a while - I didn't have any stability
issues, apart from final hardware failure :)
I can't tell you specifically about that glibc bug, but if the
documentation only mentions 2.2, then you should be fine.
Make sure you follow the instructions for compiling ( included in the
source distribution ) - specifically the recommended CFLAGS.
Some other things to keep in mind:
- You would expect the most recent kernel to be the most stable ( most
recent 2.4 kernel is fine if you don't want to upgrade to 2.6 )
- The gcc-3.3 series has reached 3.3.6 ... I don't know if there are
any bugs fixed between your 3.3.4 the 3.3.6 that would affect you -
probably not, but it's possible
- MySQL recommends that people use their binaries for maximum
performance and stability. If you come across a bug, the first thing
they will suggest is that you try one of their binaries
