Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Time to update the recommended OS version(s)?

Posted by S. Y. on
You can probably use rpm2cpio (or whatever that utility is) to extract the 6.2 glibc2.0 compatability libraries. Or you can search for it on the Internet in a tarball format. Or you can find a moldy old extra disk drive, then install and upgrade Linux from all your CDs.

The latter is what I did recently, so now I have a bunch of moldy old libc libraries. While I don't care about Tclpro, I have discovered that I can run a Neolithic web browser like Netscape Navigator 3.04 with the old libc5 libraries by using a wrapper script that exports LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

It's up to you to figure out how you want to get the old libc libraries on your machine, though. Good luck.
