Thunderbird 0.3 and Slack 9


Just tried installing it, and I got this:

thunderbird/thunderbird-bin: /lib/libpthread.so.0: version `GLIBC_2.3.2' not found (required by /opt/thunderbird-0.3/thunderbird/libnspr4.so)

I'm trying to run the version with GTK2/XFT btw... has anyone seen or worked around this without compiling from source?

TIA

B.

that is precisely what I am trying to do... the problem happens when running the binary. BTW the binary 0.1 distribution works great.

i guess when you said "install," i thought you were trying to install something (silly me ).

as Baldorg suggested, the answer is simple. upgrade your glibc to the required version.

ok... did it... feel like a goof for even asking... apologies for wasting LQ's disk space and your time. And 0.3 didn't even solve the stupid layout prob I was hoping to fix.

Thanks everyone
