libpthread.so.0(GLIBC_2.3.2)


I am very new to the world of Linux and only just installed the system last november. I was trying to install the vegastrike 0.4.1 package but it came up with 'packages not found', the unlocatable packages being libopenal.so.0, libpthread.so.0(GLIBC_2.3.2), and OpenAL. Where can I find these packs to download?

Using Redhat 8.0

Log in as root from an xterminal.

run yum search libthread

If it comes back with packages, do: yum install package-name

Repeat the process for any other packages. You can also Google search the missing files and you should be able to find which packages provide them. Also, try a mirror for RedHat. That's usually what I do for WBEL3 since whitebox is redhat without the logos

Tried command xterm, got a black box and on the original terminal window: [root@localhost root]# xterm
Warning: Cannot allocate colormap entry for "Orchid"
Warning: Cannot allocate colormap entry for "Wheat"
[root@localhost root]#

So sorry, I am a total newbie.

On rpmseek.com I find many packages with libpthread.so.0 provided but none with libpthread.so.0(GLIBC_2.3.2) provided. Is this what I am looking for or not?

don't type xterm in a terminal window. Open up the terminal window and login as root. so you're looking at this:

root@your-computer-name# yum search libpthread

If yum finds a package that has the required file in it, run:

root@your-computer-name# yum install package-name

I think the package you're looking for is glibc, so you can try:

root@your-computer-name# yum install glibc

If that doesn't work try doing a search:

root@your-computer-name# yum search glibc

Install any glibc packages it finds and then try re-installing the software you originally had issues with. Hope this helps.
