Actually, I suspect LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 does still work, but other
changes, probably to glibc, means it no longer fixes your problem.
Comment 2 Ignacio Galmarino 2003-11-11 10:27:23 EST
i only install the new kernel (kernel-2.6.0-0.test9.1.78) and new
kernel-utils (kernel-utils-2.4-9.1.102)  and it works again. I thinks
its related to the kernel

On the stock Fedora Core 1 kernel the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 thing
still works for me to fix the Wine problem that it fixed under the RH9
Comment 4 Damiano Guerrini 2004-02-23 15:20:09 EST
I have installed kernel 2.6.2 and 2.6.1 and LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5
2.4.19 not work. 
I have try to install kernel-utils-2.4-9.1.102 and
kernel-utils-2.4-9.1.113 from
but nothing change. 
I have previously installed kernel 2.6.2 and 2.6.1 on rh9 and
HELP I Need to work with websphere, ibm hmc, and ibm WSAD

I'm closing this.  The problem is not related to glibc.
