slackware 3.5 and seti...cant execute


Background:running basiclinux 1.8 based on slackware 3.5,installed to HD,doenloaded many pkgs and most of the libraries no prob,got X working,gimp working,netscape working,GCC working,and many others.

Problem:Had an old copy of seti glibc2.1 static on a floppy.....cant run it.

Bash comes up with "no such file or directory",I can cp it,mv it,and rm it.

Tried bash 'progname' and it says cant execute binary and kicks out an a.out file in the working directory.

checked permissions and ownership..it should run

tried 'file' and LD and it says ELF file dynamically linked and stripped

Have ELF libs installed already.

Had probs untarring it too......but gzip it to a TGZ file and running pkg and it unpacked ok.

Do I need to make some kind of a link in ld.so.conf or something? If so how? Also, why wont BASH recognize this thing exists if I can manipulate the file but cant run it?

Im lost.Help.

Could you please post 'ls -l' result in the directory you have the executable in? And please post the full command you use to run it.

It looks perfect...Could you copy the whole output when you try to run it?

Tried......doesnt output anything other than "no such file or directory", and running bash progname kicks out an a.out file which is empty.This is weird....I upgraded to the full version of slackware 3.5 too, thought busybox and all the sym links it uses may have been a prob....wasnt that either.

Evrything else seems to be working.....Ive compiled source code on this machine and run it just fine....weird.I even tried downloading the latest copy of seti and tried it....same result. Tried running seti on my RH7 box and it works just fine.......Im wondering if its a library issue,even that should kick out something relevant to help me.Any of this show up in the sys log somewhere?I used that to fix my ppp problems.

Hmm...Maybe the Seti version you have doesn't work with your libc? Slackware 3.5 was releases some time ago and there may be libraries problems...
