Summary: standard shared libraries for programs
Contains the standard libraries that are used by multiple programs on
the system. In order to save disk space and memory, as well as to
ease upgrades, common system code is kept in one place and shared between
programs. This package contains the most important sets of shared libraries,
the standard C library and the standard math library. Without these, a
Linux system will not function.
