Description Jim Nance 2000-12-07 07:16:21 EST
I am unable to run applix or wordperfect 8 because of shared library
problems.  It works
under RedHat 6.2 because the libc-5.3.12-31 package supplies those libs:

bessie> cd /opt/applix/
bessie> ldd ./applix => /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/ (0x4000d000) => /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/ (0x4009f000) => /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/ (0x400a7000)
bessie> file ./applix 
./applix: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1, dynamically
linked (uses shared libs), not stripped
bessie> rpm -qf /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/ 

This package does not exist under 7.0.  The closest I can find is
but this does not contain the necessary files.

Install the libc and packages from 6.2.

libc5 support was intentionally removed.
