/lib/libpthread.so.): version 'GLIBC_2.3.2' not found


How do I get this?

When I run my program from root it says this /lib/libpthread.so.0: version 'GLIBC_2.3.2' not found (required by myprogram)

helps if you tell us what system you're on for a start... we're not psychic. go fill in your user profile please. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...on=editprofile

essentially you need to upgrade glibc by whatever means your unknown system might let you do that.

you don't seem to be having much luck with this myexefile thing... (it's a secret what it is i assume..... ) if you're installing random prebuilt binary files, you can't really expect an easy ride... compile whatever it is from source, or find a prebuilt RPM suitable for your distributon of linux.

naah its not a secret

I am trying to run the HP's itanium ski simulator.

When u sar tar -zxvf it already opens it with /usr/bin and in one of my earlier posts I asked if I needed to use a program to install anything I was told there was no need for it.

I said tar -zxvf ski.tar.gz (put this file in the /usr/bin) when I logged in as root. Then it created another /usr/bin inside the already existing /usr/bin

It was giving the same error.. I thought I didnt place it in the right place because the usr/lib where the missing file is cant be found... I changed a lot of classpaths before again doing a tar -zxvf ski.tar.gz from the /root

Now I have the file in /usr/bin/ski but it still cant find that file...

I googled around and I find posts in different languages... none of which I understood...

I doono what to do....

The software that I have is looking for a newer version and I have a older version of the libpthread file?

If so then I have to download an older version of the software.


I can do this however how do I remove these files?

Do I just delete them ?

well if they are distributing a binary only, then you can try some nasty hacks to get it working. try creating a symlink from your real libpthread.so to the file it wants. with those symbols matching there shouldn't be any other incompatabilities.

well it's after /lib/libpthread.so.0 so only that path will do. is there a file there already?
