Description of problem:
Is libc5 missing on RHAT 7.1? 
I tried to run Applixware 4.4.1 (linked against libc.so.1) but it did not 
start (No such file or directory, because of missing ld.so.1)

A temporary solution was to install the RPM "libc-5.." of RHAT 6.2.

Where is libc5 (libc.so.1) for RHAT 7.1?

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install RH 7.1
2. run applix 4.4.1

Actual Results:  shell% ./applix
No such file or directory

Expected Results:  start of application

Additional info:

"No such file or ...": I was in the right directory, but "ld.so.1" was not 
found and so the application could not be startet.

libc 5 is not included in 7.0 and above on purpose.
We no longer support the libc 5 based distributions (4.x and earlier) and
including a libc 5 in the distribution means we need to support it (take
care of security fixes etc).
If you really need to run libc 5 applications, the method you used is the
recommended one, the packages from 6.2 should install into 7.x systems without

I can't get this method to work with the even older Applix that I have though.
This one identifies itself as Applixware version 4.37 (807.141.90).

I installed ld.so-1.9.5-13.i386.rpm and
libc-5.3.12-31.i386.rpm from Red Hat 6.2 on my Red Hat 7.1 system to avoid
the no such file message, but when I try to run applix after that it segfaults.
This is both with the applix I already had installed in RH6.2 days, and if I
reinstall it from the CD.

This Applix is published by Red Hat Software and on the box it says
that it requires linux 1.2.13 "or better", libc 5.2.18 "or better",
libm 5.0.5 or better and X11R6 so it seems like you have told me that it should
work. :-)
