I installed arachni on a cent os 6.4 and get the 'GLIBC'_2.14(5) not found. I read all about it what I could find on google and ran the build script suggested in another support article. All is fine except the above 'GLIBC'_2.14(5) not found.
I checked the GLIBC version of cent os and it comes back as 2.12-1.107.el6.x86_64.
I am new to Linux, arachni and centos, but it appears I need to update GLIBC but yum update glibc says no updates available.
How can I get arachni to run? Is there a manual way to update glibc?

    Let's back up a bit, you ran the build script and the resulting package returned the same error? That's not possible (I think) as everything would be built against your host's libc.

    Are you sure you didn't get your directories mixed up between the package you built vs the one you downloaded? Sounds silly, I know, but it has happened.

    Alternatively, you can download the latest Ubuntu and run Arachni on that.

    PS. Sorry for this, I'll switch the build machines to CentOS for future releases as this has created problems for a few people.

    I installed on Ubuntu desktop 64 bit with the install script that was given in a different post. (ARACHNI_BUILD_BRANCH='master' wget -O - | bash).
    Now I am getting
    git:// (at master) is not checked out. Please run 'bundle install'.
    Oh boy there is nothing simple and working here.

    I meant that the stable release packages are sure to work on the latest Ubuntu.

    No worries, the packages are basically self-contained pre-configured environments so that you won't have to manually install any dependencies or worry about incompatibilities[1].
    You just extract[2] the archive and have look at the included README file, it should explain how to run the executables etc. No installation necessary.

    Let me know how it goes.

    [1] Except for libc, as you witnessed, but I'll make that dependency more resilient in the future.

    [2] tar xvf arachni-blahblah from the console or Right-click -> Extract blah blah from a GUI.

    Forgot to update this at the time of the release but the packages are henceforth built on CentOS 6.4 so they will work fine for you.
