Description of problem:
when trying to execute something with winex, it complains of not finding a
symbol in glibc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install WineX 2.2.1-1
2. try to execute a windows executable with winex
3. it will complain that it cannot find symbol h_errno
Actual Results: $ winex /mnt/dvd/Autorun.exe
/usr/lib/transgaming/winex/bin/wine: relocation error:
/usr/lib/transgaming/winex/lib/libwine.so: symbol h_errno, version GLIBC_2.0 not
defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference
Expected Results: winex should run fine
I'm using WineX-2.2.1-1, available from transgaming.com
this very version of WineX was working fine under RedHat 8.0
h_errno symbol shouldn't ever appear in shared libraries/binaries since gilbc 2.0
days (aplpications which use h_errno are supposed to #include <netdb.h>, where
h_errno may (and in glibc case is) be defined as a macro.
You can work around this by running the application which has these problems
with LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 in the environment, see release notes.
Alternatively, current CVS wine should work with NPTL just fine too.
