Re: [SLUG] Why does my executable not well.....Execute!

> ldd xsnow should give you the answer to that

On Rh7.1

  $ ldd `which xsnow`
  /usr/bin/ldd: /usr/X11R6/bin/xsnow: No such file or directory

On Rh6.2

   $ ldd `which xsnow`
   libXext.so.6 => /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x40014000)
   libX11.so.6 => /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x4001e000)
   libm.so.5 => /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/libm.so.5 (0x400b0000)
   libc.so.5 => /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/libc.so.5 (0x400b8000)

Hmmm, ok so we look on the rh7.1 install and find libXext.so.6 and
libX11.so.6 but libm.so.5 and libc.so.5 are missing. I thought that
Linux had this library version thing under control. Like the binary
looks for libm.so not libm.so.5. What's going on Linux this is looking
like a bad case of windows ddl hell. So I grab the libs off the Rh6.2
box and stick them on the 7.1 box and....Nothing works :-(

Backward binary compatiblity between kernels Hah!

What's the time line look like for a stable version of Debian on
the 2.4 kernel?
