glibc error

I got the message:

[oracle@localhost root]$ Disk1/runInstaller
[oracle@localhost root]$ Initializing Java Virtual Machine from /tmp/OraInstall2004-11-17_09-01-20PM/jre/bin/java. Please wait...
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Unable to load native library: /tmp/OraInstall2004-11-17_09-01-20PM/jre/lib/i386/ symbol __libc_wait, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file with link time reference

when trying to install Oracle 9i on Fedora3. It was recommended that I do a check:

nm /lib/ | grep -i glibc_2.0 | grep -v @

and I should see:

00000000 A GLIBC_2.0

or higher which I did. Now Im totally stuck and dont know what to do?

All ideas are greatly apprciated.

You might need to see glibc 2.0... NOT higher.. Not lower....

If this JavaVM is a binary library... If it is a binary... you need glibc 2.0

Hopefully you can compile it ...from some source???

Best of luck,

You SHOULD be able to install Glibc-2.0
just make sure you compile it from source, and install it to a completely diffetrent location, so you dont overwite your existing glibc version.

then you will need to change many environment variables to make oracle, and only oracle use the older glibc...

im not sure HOW to do this... but i do know it can be done.

My apologies. I got the answer a couple of days ago. Typically I make it habit to share answers with the group and apparently I forgot to do so here.
