RealAudio 5.0 (rvplayer) crashes with glibc-2.0.108

rvplayer crashes with a segmentation fault under RedHat.
Here's one workaround which may prove helpful for running
other Linux binaries which crash under glibc 2.0.108 and for
which source is not available:
* Copy these files from glibc-2.0.7 into /cpt:
ld-2.0.7.so libc.so.6 libm-2.0.7.so
ld-linux.so.2 libdl-2.0.7.so libm.so.6
libc-2.0.7.so libdl.so.2 libresolv-2.0.7.so
* Rename rvplayer to rvplayer.bin and make this shell script
* Edit rvplayer.bin (with, e.g. emacs) and change the
reference to /lib/ld-linux.so.2 into /cpt/ld-linux.so.2
If you have a better workaround, or ideally, can fix the
compatibility code in glibc-2.0.108, please let me know.
FYI, it won't work without patching with most of the sound drivers in
Yup, that's why I've been using ALSA (http://alsa.jcu.cz/).
This is a problem witb the changes in the 2.2 kernel audio drivers,
and Real will have to fix their code.
