I've built myself a shiny centOs 5.1 server and am in the process of migrating from an aging fedora core 2 server, and I've run into a problem. I have an application built under fedora 2 that used 2 libraries supplied by the pseudo-developer. so far so good all linked up and worked. but under centos, the libraries are rejected as incompatible. and pseudo-developer has no updated libraries since 2004 (no joke) - and the only versions they have are for rh6,rh7,rh8 and rh9 (I think I used the rh9 ones for fedora core 2). I dont have the source code for the two incompatible libraries (of course) - but is there any trick that would let me bind them in in some compatibility mode? or is there an older version of gcc available that might install along side the current version that would make a current-kernel-ok binary using the old libraries. and I'm running the x64 kernel. am I being stupid trying to link 2 32-bit libraries into a binary at all? who's going to win in Indiana and NC tonight? inquiring minds and all that thanks cdb. am I making sense?
