[tex-live] Texlive 2018 doesn't support on redhat/centos 6

just to be clear, is that

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/glibc-2.14/lib

still in effect when you use xelatex?

The installer does not care about glibc (as far as I know, it does not even check for it), the precompiled binaries cares

Hi dear texlive,

I update glibc on my Centos 6.5 from glibc-2.12 to glibc-2.14 as follow:

mkdir ~/glibc_install; cd ~/glibc_install
wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/glibc/glibc-2.14.tar.gz
tar zxvf glibc-2.14.tar.gz
cd glibc-2.14
mkdir build
cd build
../configure --prefix=/opt/glibc-2.14
make -j4
sudo make install
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/glibc-2.14/lib

And I install texlive2018 :

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/glibc-2.14/lib
install-tl -profile texlive.profile

I seems all goes well, but when I use xelatex, I got error:

$ /home/shenweiyan/texlive2018/bin/x86_64-linux/xelatex test.tex
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I can see the same error on https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/443578/segmentation-fault-core-dumped-when-run-xelatex-on-centos-6-2?noredirect=1&lq=1, so I want make sure is texlive 2018 doesn't support on redhat/centos 6?
