I tried to install bootstrap-prefix.sh file and while installation I am getting error Host glibc is too old. While stage 3 some binaries are not downloaded and the process failed.
The Linux system I am using is RHEL-5 and I tried installation of Python pack 3.4
Could anybody tell me what could be the issue?

MAy i ask which installation guide you are using?

Booststrap sounds like outdated guide

The gentoo handbook is hte only supported method.

I did several installations in past years and i never needed a boostrap for a fresh install, moving of existing installations to other hardware

--

suggestion

sysrescue-cd to install the system, boot from it (when the hardware is recongnized, else any other bootalbe medium which recognizes the hardware)
stage3 + gentoo handbook

---

alternative

install linux mint, use it as host os, to install gentoo, than ditch linux mint (thats my personal way) i used to use arch linux to install gentoo, both work in this regard
